Hi all, I wanted to let you know that I finally got onto the boards (it only took 2 weeks to learn what to do) I got my email from Julie and was so excited to hear my email would be read on the anniversary show!
I wasn't able to listen to it on Friday but I downloaded it and listened to it on the 2 hr ride to visit my Mom. She's been ill and in the hospital on and off since my Dad passed away in Feb '06. This last hospital visit has led us to having to put her in a nursing home. Needless to say I needed the pick-me-up that I am guaranteed to get from listing to you guys!
I am so happy to be part of this tremendous group of people who listen and participate here. I want to wish all of you the best and hope that you will all be together for the 20th Anniversary!!!! Anita F. - Oxford, MA
P.S. I love my gardening bag!

Great show Pete. Would it be possible to meet with you guys for a photo-op the week of 11/17-11/24? My family listens to the podcast while we go about our business of preparing dinner and doing homework on Tuesday evenings. This is reminisant of families in the past gathering around the radio listening to the Lone Ranger. Please note that our children are all grown students 17,18 and 20. We certainly are attentive to and are appreciative of the material that you guys have gathered. Keep up the great work.

Hey! Just joined up through iTunes, I'm just confused on how to download them. Should I get them all to get caught up? (Which would take about a year and a half!) Or are there any there are stand outs that I HAVE to listen to?

I feel almost foolish asking these questions but how do I actually view the podcast? Do I need an ipod? Can I link up thru the Dis bds. or do I have to go to itunes?:confused3

I have also downloaded some dis podcasts of CC or EPCOT but they took hrs just to get a few minutes--anything faster?:surfweb:

I just found the podcast on iTunes a few weeks ago and have been listening to the prior 'casts and am so proud I'm acutally into April. I've listened to a few other Disney podcasts from other sites but this is definitely the BEST! I laugh out loud at least once during each show and usually I'm crying because I'm laughing so hard. Keep up the great work and I'm happy to have found such a great show!

two questions:

1. Do emails/phone calls to the podcast have to be questions?
or can they also be comments? (for example, a comment on something that was discussed in a prior show)


2. what is the phone number? the email address? (i guess that actually makes it 3 questions)...

Nope, it can be a comment, and idea, or even a shout-out from another part of the world.

Hello POD crew.

I just wanted to let you know what a big help POD casts have been while I've planed our Disney World trip in Dec.

I enjoy listing to all of you each week.

Thanks again.

Oh just so you know, we will not be swimming in the fresh water lakes. However ever time I tell someone about the amoebas in the fresh water, they think I'm telling tall tales. Mainly because in Canada the worst thing we need to worry about is the ice. Ha ha

Hi all!!!

My wife and I are from the Denver area in Colorado. We cant wait until Wednesday every week. The podcast is seriously the brightest part of our week as we are preparing for our Jan vacation. My 8 and 10 yr old both know the cast by name, and after the "pooh size" (which by the way is my size too) comment, I think they know a little too much about the cast.

We have religiously scheduled our trip to coincide with the reccomendations of the podcast crew, even to the extent of cancelling at san angel and getting ADR's at the Poly.

You all have really influenced us for this trip alot...... Now, that being said.....

After all of this planning and listening to your endless rants and raves week after week, your complaints about the silliest things, this trip better be awesome!!!! If not, its all "YOUR FAULT KEVIN!!!"

Ok, just kidding, we love you all and will probably be faithful disunplugged listeners to our graves...

Thanks for everything!!

Jon and Chris:rotfl2:

Hi all,

Your podcast is by far the best I've heard in terms of entertainment, information, humour, interest and credibility! Thanks so much!

I was just wondering when you will announce the winner of the restaurant review contest. Hope Kevin is able to read and listen to all the entries now that he's feeling better. Wishing you a speedy complete recovery Kevin!!!

20 days until our next trip to WDW!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!

I suspect that about 50% of you will already know who I am either through the Toy Story Mania event or the recent incredible Cruise adventure.

I had a temporary arrangement with the other half (Becx), whilst I was posting under the ID Becx N Gav. Decided it was time for that arrangement to come to an end and thus have setup my own ID. Thought that 'Gav N Becx' was a good play on words....

You can find me on Facebook if not already added - just look for Gavin Wooding - I'm on a few Disser friends lists.

I plan to sort out my post count with the admins, probably by reducing Becx's and topping up mine. So if you see a sudden boost, you'll know why. Am just waiting for them to get back to me, but know that with the weather over there, this request will be at the bottom of a long list!!!

Have been listening to the podcast since about Jan 2008 and can't wait for it to come out every week. Of course now that I've joined the Iphone addicts amoungst you, I can now get them whilst at work yeh!

Counting down to the next cruise :yay:

Hi Podcast Crew
I've been on the dis for 4 years now but I am new in these parts. I don't remember how I found the podcast but I think it was to combat my DH filling my Christmas present I touch with You tube clips of people getting hit in the groin.
Before we left on our April 26 - May 3 Disney trip I downloaded the last 2 years of podcasts and have been working my way backward. I no longer listen to radio in my car it is Dis Unplugged Podcasts or nothing, my non dis friends won't ride with me anymore. My DS9 is a convert though and sucks up all the information he will help me plan our next trip. He is already giving little reviews of where we stayed and where we ate.
I have made it back to Dec 24, 2008 and am slowly learning a bit about who you all are. I guess if I want to see who you all are I will have to wait for the Cruise Podcast Video.
Thanks for the Podcast it keeps Disney in my life when I can't be on the boards!

Hi podcast crew from Adam in the UK

Like the previous post from Anjiebaby, i have been lurking on the boards since last year, mainly using the disboards dvc forums (as you have more info then the UK site im normally on) then i discovered the podcasts!

You have taken over my life, i downloaded every podcast from the start of 2009, (you filled up my 4gb ipod and i have now had to buy a bigger one ;o)
and im listening to 3 a day, travelling in the car to and from work but im only up to the 27th May, so im not up to date yet.

I have just spent the last 2 journeys listening to the podcast cruise and I would love to attend the next one or even a meet because it sounds like you all had a really great time, once iv convinced my wife and daughters that we should buy into DVC after our visit to the world in August i will move onto the Disunplugged podcruise, (if thats not possible due to school holiday limits then a call to Dreams might be on the cards ;o) )

Anyway, what im really trying to say is that the show is brilliant, im laughing at 5am in the morning and laughing 12 hours later when driving home.
After hearing on the podcasts about the blogs iv discovered and registered on that site and will try out Dis Radio (only twitter and facebook to go then)

So thankyou for entertaining me and reminding me i need to return to the world, keep up the good work

I don't make a lot of trips down to the World, and it is great to hear what's going on in the news and "relive the magic" as I've heard many people way. I'm also making a mental list of new things to include in my plans for future trips down the road. Thanks all!

Hi Adam - how is it going with the Podcasts - I need a week off work to listen to the older ones :rotfl:

Glad you found the Podcast - it rocks and all the crew are just the most welcoming bunch of people :thumbsup2 I hope you can hold up the UK end and come on the next Podcast cruise :yay: Good luck with DVC - it's the best thing we've ever done :lovestruc

Hi guys! I started listening to the pod casts a couple months ago. I started with some from earlier this year. I think I am going to jump to current now and go backwards.

I have to tell you, I find myself LOL quite a bit. You guys are a riot.

I love Disney but I am not quite the die hard fan as some are on the boards. I may be kicked off the boards for admitting this but we have been hitting WDW about every third year so that we can fit in some other vacation spots! Some years, we even stay close to home. It depends on the vacation budget for the year, ya know? Anyway, I absolutely believe in the magic of Disney and love it when we get to go. (Please don't disable my username, k?)

So my quesion - is there a place where you have posted bios and user names for the podcast crew? I have been able to piece together a lot of it but sometimes I think I am still behind. I would love to know a little bit more about the team.

Don't laugh at this but I use to not be able to tell John and Kevin apart by their voices. But then I figured out (or at least I think I did) that Kevin is just chiming in a lot! LOL Kevin please don't take offense! Just kidding around with you!

It is only fair that I share a little info about myself - My husband and I have been married for 13 years (as of next week). We have three kids - dd,10; ds, almost 8; dd, 5. We both work full time and between jobs and the kids, we are super busy. We have taken the kids to WDW twice. Our third trip is planned for October and we can't wait.

Thanks for what you are doing! I very much enjoy these boards!

:)Hi basketlacey....

Welcome aboard.

Thanks for the nice comments. I think you will find Disney fans of every variety here. This is a friendly place to hang out.

Please keep in mind that someof these folks have been chatting for a few years now, so it may seem like there is lot of "in" jokes. Make yourself known, get to know the other folks and I think you will find that you are pulled right in.

As for our bios and photos.....some of us...ok, John and I... have asked that our photos not be posted. We do restaurant reviews, and they arent always good. I wouldnt want anyone doing anything to our food. :)

There is a anniversary show that would give you a lot of background.

Enjoy listening.

Thrilled to have you aboard.

basketlacey
08-11-2009, 09:55 AM
Oh - I definitely understand about the inside jokes! Right now I am trying to figure out what the big deal is about swimming in the lakes. Regardless, I crack up when I listen!

I hear ya about the photos! I actually love the restaurant reviews. I am very excited that you are doing some offsite reviews because we are staying offsite in October. We have actually rented a house because there are 13 of us and we wanted to stay together. It ended up that we are going to be there during free dining so we will likely be looking for some offsite restaurants because I think they will be much less crowded!

DisneyKevin
08-11-2009, 10:15 AM
I can clear up the "lakes" comment.

Every year, we do a story about not swimming in lakes in FL...especially in warm weather.

A very nasty amoeba grows in the warm water. It thrives in the sand in the shallow areas.

If this amoeba gets into your mucous membranes, it can lead to a quick and nasty death. This usually happens to children.

Also...several of our podcast team (not me) took a fishing excursion on Bay LAke so that we could reort on it. During the trip, the guide showed the team aligators and poisonous snakes.

After reporting on the deaths of kids and the aligators and snakes, someone posted a photo os kids swimming behind the Polynesian....in front of the no swimming sign.

We talked about it again and another podcast let people know that we were over-reacting.

Shortly after that...another child died from this brain eating amoeba.

This is where "stay outta tyhe damn lakes" comes from.

Now....the rest is up to you.:thumbsup2

Have fun.

Hi Kevin and all on the boards -

I am fairly new at this as my post count indicates, but I am not new to Disney. My wife, son, and I get to WDW and/or Disneyland 2-3 times per year, are members of DVC, and considered ourselves fairly big Disney fans...

...until we discovered the DIS and the Podcast.

Like several other in this thread, I am hooked on the Podcast. I listen to at least two each day (yes, I am going to listen to all of those on iTunes eventually!!) The Podcast is funny, easy to listen to (even on subjects that have no bearing on me) and is very informative on those subjects that do have a bearing on me!

Congratulations on steering the evolution of this community into a thriving forum and (hopefully) a real business for yourselves. Like I said, I thought I was a real fan, until I got here!

BTW, I actually sent in an email question for the Podcast last week (1st time) regarding offsite dining ideas, which you read, Kevin, and thanks for the suggestions! I haven't heard back from you regarding the T-shirt! Are you still doing that? Maybe I didn't send enough info in my email...

Keep up the good work - I look forward to meeting you guys sometime!

Hi Podcast Crew!

New fan...I was just going to listen to maybe 1 to see if it was something I'd be interested in listening to later...I mean, I've done Dis quite a few times now and figured...eh, not sure a podcast is for me...

HAHA, 12 or 13 podcasts later, I was hooked. I knew it was bad when my husband said...

...are you still listening to those things? :confused3

I had it on in the background while I was working for a few days...ha, he had NO idea how far reaching Dis lovers are. He's doesn't get it...but that's okay..I'll still love him even without having the Dis bug. I'm just that kind of girl. I can overlook a fault. :rotfl2:

Anyway, another fan...I've been on the other board for awhile, and just came out of lurker mode this year.

Cheers, Deb/solar

Well, I'm that 5 month hump poster, lol.... (ok, so that sounded corny) anyway... been on DISBoards for, oh, IDK off the top of my head.. but I think it shows to the left, doesn't it? Gonna guess since Christmas '09. Anyway... LOVE IT!!! EXTREMELY HOOKED, to where I neglect my college work, which is SO NOT good, when I graduate this year and my reason for my vacation to Disney next year is because my graduation ceremonies take place in FL, lol. (Miami to be exact.) After my graduation, my family, I, a friend of mine and her family (9 of us) are heading to Disney for 11 days!!!! Can't wait!!!!!

I just recently found podcasts, well no actually I've seen it on the DISBoards, but never ventured over to here.. and just yesterday, I decided.. what the hey.. check it out, see what it's all about.. and whataya know! Listened to 30 minutes of Tuesdays show, and viola! I'm hooked!!!! It was late, and I was tired or I would have listened to the whole thing.. gonna get them all in, no matter how long it takes, lol.

Keep up the GREAT work, excellent information and funny statements, laughter :rotfl2: is the best medicine, or so they say, and I do believe it! :worship::thumbsup2:worship::thumbsup2

I just found this section of the boards (though I've been DISing for two years!) and will just jump on it, if it is okay! I'm Lyn. I am a CM with WDW (seasonal) and am a sophomore in college at BYU Idaho (as of April). Love listening to the podcast when I get a chance. Nice to meet everyone and I look forward to chatting with you all soon! :)

Hi everyone,

I'm a lifelong Disney fan, but only recently found the Dis Unplugged podcasts. Now, of course, I'm addicted. I'm in the process of listening to every podcast. I'm going back in time, and in the last few weeks I've listened back to every podcast till just before Bob passed away. I plan on listening back to the beginning while keeping up with all the new ones as they come out.

Anyway, I'm glad to be here. I'll probably be posting mostly on this board since I do belong to other Disney message boards but this podcast forum really brings something unique.

Hello to podcast crew and DISers
I have been on the DIS for a while... I think, and the first time that I listened to the pocast was the March 18th email session. That gentleman was so uplifting. I was able to get wind of it from my good friend *NikkiBell* who I know a few of you know well. I now listen to podcasts ony way to work and school trying to catch up on the many that I have missed out on. Keep up the good work.

Hi all,

I discovered your podcast about 6 months ago and have been listening to it while I run on the treadmill. I am running every Disney race this year (including the 5k fun runs), so I will be in Orlando quite often. I have learned lots of interesting and helpful tips. I am planning my family's reunion at Disney in December and am listening with extra care to Teresa's updates on her challenge (I posted separately about my Disney Dining Plan experience). I learned about Grand Gatherings from you guys, too, and would love to hear more about them on the podcast.

Thank you very much for making my long runs feel short!

Hey all!!!

I just wanted to say that the DIS Unplugged team is awesome!! Our class just went to WDW for a college class and got to meet with them at Ohana's and they are some of the funniest and interesting people you can meet! Thanks for starting off our trip right.

I'd visited this site on and off since my teenage years, but I recently discovered this podcast and am now addicted! I listen to it every morning in the shower; of course, I don't get through all of it at once. Love, love, love this show; thank you for doing it. A member on the boards introduced me to the intro podcast. By the way, Dave Parfitt gets some sick interviews!! How does he do it? I looooove Samantha Brown, by the way.

I have only been listening to the podcast for a few weeks - I found you all to be kindred in opinions and priorities! I have a few other WDW podcast faves, but you quickly soared up to my "must listen now" list.

Plus, when Pete described Universal Studios Mgmt on this week's review of the Harry Potter land, it pretty much sealed my loyalty as a listener! Love the conviction and eloquence!

(That, plus your restaurant reviews have made me hungry each time.)

I actually had to pause this podcast when Pete went on his tyrade about Universal. I could hardly breathe I was laughing so hard.
Pete YOU NAILED IT!
I have downloaded most of the podcast for the year and have learned numerous new things about WDW and for that A TIP OF THE HAT to the whole team. You guys rock! Mostly the guys...kidding!! :rotfl:

Hello. I'm a newbie and my first post. Just want to say that I'm happy to find this site. I love Disneyland. I've been to Disney in Hongkong last 2009. Still exploring this site and looking forward to share more of my experience and make friends here.

Hi guys! I love the show- you all make me laugh so much and I'm always telling DBF and mom about the segments and funny things said on the podcast! I'm a relatively new listener so I've been trying to catch up on all the previous shows. I thought i would pop over and say hello and thank you all for your hard work! Oh and I just downloaded eTicket and absolutely love it!!!! Keep up the amazing work you all do! :)

Hi there and :welcome:

Hi! and thank you! It's been a while since I've been here but it was for WDW. I have the answer since I have gotten my quote already. My next questions is how do I get a countdown? I have been trying to figure it out but I'm having no luck. Thanks in advance for the help!

When do podcasts upload to the DisUnplugged app?
usually next day?

Kind of wish it were quicker!!
I like to listen on my drive home from work. :drive:

Any chance?

I have to echo what you said, jesswindsor! I love Disney, but I haven't been able to go to the parks for over 3 years. I've had some things I needed to take care of during this time, and the Dis pod casts were such a joy for me. As well as being VERY entertaining :rotfl: and informative, the podcast team was my link to Disney World and Florida. You guys got me through a hard time and I'm very grateful! My situation has eased up a bit, so I'm looking forward to seeing some of the team at the NE Dis Meet. And, I'm finally able to take a quick trip to the parks in December!! :banana::woohoo:

Thanks guys!

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to both the podcast and the disboards (though I have known of the disboards for a long time.)

Any tips for being a dis unplugged listener?

Hi everyone!
I have recently been listening to the podcast at work and feel like I can call the gang friends. I have to watch myself at work when I let out a giggle from the gang's funny banter. Shaun has even peaked my interest in Universal, but I don't know if this dis-nerd is ready to take that leap yet :laughing:

Can anyone explain the social media aspect of the podcast? They have everyone's social media accounts... do they actually want us to follow them....or? I'm confused

That's up to you! To get the most current information though, following the team would be ideal. You can also follow the official Facebook page here:
