Dad on Disney – Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel

- It is a piece of Americana that is going to be 100 years old in 2017.

- Is this a must do attraction? No. It is a must see. It’s a must see because it is so beautifully build, painted, and maintained. There is nothing today that can compare to this classic.

 

News-

The team discuss the closing of the “Greatest Show on Earth”, Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus. Is Disney going to buy the parent company, Feld??

Game –

Jenny leads us in a game of This or That!

Dad on Disney – MK’s 7 Dwarfs Mine Train

Great for kids. Nick’s daughter is 5 and loves it but is also a thrill seeker.

“I’m still not sure about these media enhanced AAs.”

It’s a popular ride. Ride early or get a fastpass.

“I think it’s one of the best interactive queues on property.”

Try to find the hidden vault key.

Not the most comfortable ride for guys. You might want to ‘adjust’ before sitting down.
