Episode 10: Springing into a No Kids Vacation at Disney Springs

Hi,

Welcome, welcome, welcome to Episode 10 of Zipadee Doo Dah Disney. Episode 10 is titled Springing into a No Kids Vacation at Disney Springs. The episode takes a look at all the awesome adult things we did on our recent no kids The voidvacation. We stayed at Disney's Saratoga Springs Hotel so you'll get a nice review of what it's like to stay at the hotel and all the amenities that are available to you including the quick boat ride to Disney Springs and the delicious lobster roll (see pic below). I spend the bulk of the episode reviewing Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney; the review includes all of the awesome places we've eaten at over the years. Thanks for listening.

Episode 8: Falling In and Out of Love on Our Fall 2019 Trip

Hi,

Welcome, welcome, welcome to Episode 8 of Zipadee Doo Dah Disney. Episode 8 is titled Falling In and Out of Love on Our Fall 2019 Trip where we briefly explore some of the changes coming to DHS, the park layout, fast passing overview, rides overview, and how I'm planning my Fall 2019 trip. The whole episode takes into consideration the opening of Galaxy's Edge which radically changes how you plan a visit to DHS. Note, for the first few months or so, Hollywood Studios will be opening three hours earlier for Disney Hotel guests. While that is awesome news, keep in mind that Disney also changed the process for Disney Land's Galaxy Edge and I'm sure if Disney  thinks it's a good idea, they'll also change how they handle the Florida opening.

Let's Go On This Ride,

Eric
