    Hi everyone:

    First, I want to say a sincere 'thank you' to everyone that's been listening to the show. We're having a great time doing it and coming up with new ideas for segments. Along those lines, I wanted to put our a request for any topics you'd like to hear us cover - and any suggestions you have for 'where to send Bob' (I really want to send him to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and get him all done up as Princess Bob - but he won't let me :))
    Also, we'll take requests for restaurants to review if there are any specific places you'd like to hear Kevin cover.

    Thanks again for making this show so much fun for us.

    Pete

    What about the Parades?

    Like The Mickeys not so Scary Halloween and the special stuff that happens along with the parades but include the afternoon parades too!

    Probably a limited audience but how about a segment on short trips? I live two hours from WDW and we take several shorter trips during the year of usually 3 nights. I'd be interested to hear how you'd suggest handling those kids of visits.

    - A comparison between WDW and Disneyland (any tips which may not be so obvious to those WDW experts going to California for first time)
    -I think it would be neat to hear about the extensive training CM's must go through. Whether they are playing a character, member of the Dream Squad, etc. It is amazing how we experience amazing Customer Service on every trip.
    -Any cool tips that most people would not know about. For example, at MK I heard if you are the 1st one at a particular store - your child can "wake up Tink." Other ones are the paint brush treasure hunt on Tom Sawyer Island. Any other cool items?
    -Fun things to go at DTD. For example, make a potato head with your child - pick your own pieces which fit into a box.
    -Some general information on Walt's family and life. Amazing how he came up with this concept and how popular anything Disney is...


    P.S Loved your segment on DVC.

    I think this was covered by an email question but how about accomodation options for families of more than 4 :) Motive here is that we have still to have a first trip to WDW with 2 adults and 3 children.

    How about some counter service reviews :thumbsup2

    Photo and video tips :)

    How about a segment where readers are allowed to write in and compliment CMs. The best story is read on air. Maybe that would help people realize that the magic is still alive, even if you may have to look a little harder for it. As for restaurant reviews how abut Fresh at the Swan. And for a place to send Bob although not in the parks Chip and Dales campfire at Ft Wilderness.

    How about sending Bob to the parks to cover Star Wars Weekend? May the force be with him.

    For food review I would like to hear more about Boma. Everyone raves about it but I want an honest opinion.

    Keep up the good work guys!

    Here are some suggestions I have:

    For food review I would like to hear a review of a buffet, either Hollywood & Vine or Cape May Clam Bake Buffet sound interesting to me.

    Can you send Bob on another tour, maybe the Backstage Safari Tour at AK?? I am interested in that tour but am skeptical about what exactly they show you. Also, what about afternoon tea at the GF? I am not sure how Bob would feel about this but I have always been curious about it...I really like your idea about sending him to the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique! Too bad he won't go for it :rotfl:

    I also wanted to say that I really enjoyed the 'Stump the roundtable' and 'Thread watch' this week. Especially thread watch because these boards are so big it is so hard to get to every single post. So thread watch gives a good sampling of some of the more interesting ones out there! I also really enjoy Corey & Julie's segments because me and DBF are in our late 20's and take some advice from C & J about the things they do.

    In any event I truly enjoy the podcast and any segment you guys have on there is very interesting and informative!!

    I would like to see a video podcast as well as the audio podcast.

    I think it would be fun if you did something along the same lines as you did in "Around the World in 80 days". Information on resorts, restaurants, hidden treasures, more contests, etc...

    How about sending Bob para sailing? :banana:

    ...just kidding! ;)

    I agree with ericafny, please send Bob on the Backstage Safari tour. My wife is about to begin school as a veterinarian tech, and I want to surprise her with this tour on our trip in Sept. We usually do one tour per trip, and she said it was up to me to choose this time, but I want to leave it up to Bob.

    Has Kevin been to any of the character meals and reviewed them? Maybe Whispering Canyon as well? What about hotel reviews? I enjoyed hearing about your experiences at the Hard Rock and Contemporary.

    I love the new thread watch segment. I didn't know before if any of you read the threads so this thrills me.

    How about an occasional feature called something like "Orlando -- Weird and Wonderful." That Skycoaster bit that Corey and Julie did awhile back is a good start, but I'm guessing that's just scratching the surface. For this feature, the cheesier, the better. Tattoo parlors, bad dinner theater, the rodeo . l. . and wasn't there some cow chip dropping contest recently?

    I would also love to hear heart warming stories - "what WDW means to you..." Why people find it so special, what makes them keep going back, amazing experiences they share with their families, etc.

    I just love-love-love the fireworks at WDW and want to hear about the planning, usage, and sheer numbers of pyrotechnics (is that a word?) provided for our enjoyment. This is one of the things Disney really doesn't have to do to keep people coming to the parks and they could save truckloads of money just by cutting down the number of shows but choose not to because they know how much the guests love it. I, for one, really appreciate it and it sparks my interest -- so I want to know all the firey details! :teeth:

    I enjoy the segments that give ideas for things to do for adults. So much of the available information for trip planning has to do with families and kids. I also would like to see some restuarant reviews from off property locations, maybe just those at are so great they should not be missed. On our trip last year we tried Texas d Brazil because someone had posted about it and now we can't wait to go back.
