Episode 71: A Closer Look at the Animal Kingdom Resort Area at WDW
This week, Aaron, Willie and Tim discuss some of their favorite things about the Animal Kingdom Area of Walt Disney World. We think this area gets a bit neglected by guests - it lacks special transportation, like the monorail or Skyliner. And if you don't make an effort to learn more about the area, it's easy to overlook it and fall into habits or patterns that take you elsewhere at Walt Disney World. But we highlight some truly unique features that we think can make this area a great choice for many people's next Walt Disney World vacation.
Episode 70: A Galactic Trip Report with Kyle Gossman
With Willie off at camp, Aaron and Tim sat down with Kyle Gossman to hear all about his family's Galactic Starcruiser voyage on the Halcyon. (Warning: some content might be considered spoilers, if you are trying to avoid any advance knowledge of the experience).
What do you think about a Galactic Starcruiser vacation? Did Kyle's trip report change your thinking at all? Did Kyle's experience make you more or less likely to book Galactic Starcruiser for yourself? We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Love the Show
As a Dad who has recently become a big Disney fan, I love listening to the DisDads podcast. It’s great to hear from other Dads who love Disney as much as I do. The topics are great and the energy is even greater. Looking forward to their next show.
Dis "Dads" is more about the kids and family than "male bonding" so adjust expectations accordingly. Some diverse topics and interesting discussions from Aaron and the rotating set of panelists.
I’m a dad, I love Disney…Why not!?!?
I have been listening for years now. Discovered some overlap with some DisDads in other Podcasts. This one, particularly, is well structured, sticks to the subject and has great sponsors. I have discovered that other podcasts are slightly more forum oriented. On their webpage the header states “Going off topic since 2007”. I have been a listener since but Aaron shortchanged the cast with that statement. Keep it up, Brethren!
