WDW Radio # 549 - Top Ten Seats in Walt Disney World… and How to Get Them

WDW Radio # 549 - Top Ten Seats in Walt Disney World… and How to Get Them

As part of my ongoing mission to help you enhance your enjoyment and appreciation of the Disney Parks... and cruise... and movies, etc., this week, we're going to share our Top Ten Seats in Walt Disney World. From where the best seat is on an attraction, to where to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ambiance, as well as some other very "loose" interpretations of what that really means, we'll help you pick out the best seats in the house (or ride vehicle). You’ll learn about what you may have been missing, how to get the best view, or even score a special table at your favorite restaurant (Boathouse, I'm talking to you!). Of course I want to hear from you, as I invite you to share your favorite seats as well.

WDW Radio # 548 - Polite Pig at Disney Springs LIVE Dining Review

WDW Radio # 548 - Polite Pig at Disney Springs LIVE Dining Review

As Disney Springs has evolved to become a necessary destination and attraction for your next Walt Disney World vacation, its dining options and offerings have grown as well. From casual to elegant, to quick and relaxing, there is now truly something for everyone. And one of the locations which quickly became a favorite for locals and visitors alike is The Polite Pig. This “casual plus” restaurant offers more than just some of the best barbecue you’ll find, but a surprising (and delicious) array of appetizers, sides, and a drink menu that’s so big, it takes up an entire side of the menu! This week, I invite you to join me for lunch at The Polite Pig in our live dining review… and don't forget… I wouldn’t listen if you’re hungry, because even if you’re not, you will be.

WDW Radio # 545 - Extinct Stage Shows of Walt Disney World

WDW Radio # 545 - Extinct Stage Shows of Walt Disney World

One of my favorite aspects of Walt Disney World is the wide variety of live entertainment, and over the past nearly 5 decades we have seen different types of shows come to life on stage in the parks. From retellings of classic Disney animated films to some of the more…. “unique” concepts that included everything from a comic strip character from the 1930s to Barbie dolls, Chevy Chase and David Letterman, life size-Muppets, a Pet Detective, a sleeping bear, humanimals, a motorcycle circus in the skies over Epcot, talking turtles, and other characters that weren't even FROM Disney… it made for an interesting array of offerings… and the subject of this week’s show, as we look at some of the Extinct Stage Shows of Walt Disney World.
