  1. Thanks for the response guys. I feel better now about your appreciation for the art of imbibing....we seem to have a lot in common. I thought me and my wife were weird for planning our Disney trips around fine food & drink, but it seems as if you all do as well.

    I agree with you Dutch about preferring the peaty Islay Scotch, but I also love any fine barrel-aged it Rum, Anejo Tequila, Cognac, and especially Bourbon/Rye. I also recommend for Kip the Ola Dubh is an outstanding beer from Scotland (but he probably already has enjoyed one).

    By the way, I am a Virginian but currently own a construction company near Greenville, SC. I am not sure I can forgive you for calling me a northeasterner.

    Take care,

  2. Hey guys. I've discovered your show when you joined the TouringPlans network and it has quickly become my favorite of the network's podcasts.
    Beginners guide points I make, that you guys did not:
    1) A large pizza costs $40 in the park. That should give you an idea of how much everything else will cost.

    2) Have comfortable shoes; take a walk every day before your trip.

    3) If staying off-site, remember to add the cost of $15/day for parking at WDW

    4) Alcohol, soda, food can be delivered to your room from local grocers

  3. Love your show, I'm glad I found you on the TP Network. I just wanted to comment on the backpage portion of your show, very insightful and true. I would rather Disney spend on new attractions rather than a marketing plan. I know I can count on you guys for the straight story.
