I have been listening to the podcast since 11/2006 when i started planning for our last trip to the world. I have noticed that while there are plenty of experiences for singles and young couples as well as a point of view for the retired...there is no Children's view. I know you don't have to be a child to enjoy WDW and sometimes the podcasters bring nieces and nephews and such but the podcast really needs the point of view of a young family with a some kids in the 8-12 age range.

I mean a lot of people going to WDW are bringing kids of this age. Even the restaurant reviews are not catered towards kids. You really need a kid to look at the food and experience and tell you what is what. Sometimes, it doesn't really matter what the food tastes like. It's nice if it is good, but sometimes it really is the atmosphere that makes it a big deal for kids.

My last trip to WDW was the first time we went with our kids and it was a totally different experience. This sort of thing gets talked about in the boards but not on the podcast.

I still think the podcast is great. You can't always agree with people on every point. But they really need to to add that point of view. Maybe a nice addition would be a 12 year old correspondent who could talk about what they like and dislike each week. I don't know what do you all think?

ITA!

I know a while back there was talk that they recognized this void, and that something was being planned to fill it, but I've heard nothing more.

I'm not asking for the podcast to be kid-centric, as overall I like that it is more focussed on adult activites at the World. But I would like to see one member added to the panel that has kids. That would make the podcast more well-rounded IMO. (Personally I would prefer to see a parent, rather than an actual kid added to the panel)

I don't know what Corey and Julie's timeline are for kids (I know they talked that they will be having some someday), but I hope that is not what Pete is waiting for!! I would like to see someone added to the panel that has kids somewhere in the 3 - 12 year range.
