What types of things do you want us to talk about on the DIS Travel Tech show?

We have plenty of Gizmos, Gadgets, apps, and toys that we can talk about all day long, but what are ya'll interested in hearing about?

I can definitely foresee a show/shows about photography and cameras...

All joking aside....and that happens rarely...

Discussing foreign travel tech requirements would be extremely helpful.

I would like to hear recommendations for use of existing iPhones/cell phones in Europe.

I like the photography idea and maybe something about charging your devices while in the parks.

What are the best park apps? To use or not use MDE while in the parks (the app is SO slow & eats up my battery)....that is the question. Best places to charge your phone in the parks.

  • How about travel bags? Ways to safely get your gadgets to your destination.
  • Also, park bags for cameras, cell phones, tablets. Something that is easy to carry but doesn't impede getting at the thing you are looking for.
  • Multi-chargers? Instead of bringing two cell phone chargers and an iPad charger, is there one device that will do it all? If there is, is that a good idea?
  • Small things. That is something that is small but does the job of a larger original equipment thing. Like carrying a small extension cord instead of a bulky power strip.
  • How best to pack a tuba.

How about ways to keep your stuff (and your identity) safe from thieves?

..... and for those of us from the UK, regular visitors to WDW and scared to come off airplane mode when we land, use of foreign iPhones/iPads in Orlando and choice of local temporary phone/sim plans.

Oh, great idea. Add to that software for easily manipulating your pictures.
