Many of our regular podcast listeners remember the first ‘incarnation’ of the DIS Unplugged Podcast.  We were going for a ‘news magazine’ type show that focused on helping people plan their Disney related trips.  In addition to news and highlights about the various Disney theme parks and Disney Cruise Line, some of us recorded segments [...]

Sarah has blogged about Virtual Magic Kingdom and her Disney Cruise Line experience.  Now she tells us about her upcoming Disneyland vacation.  I think we can all relate to her excitement….

That’s right…..forget which day it is on a Royal Caribbean Cruise and all you have to do is get on any elevator.  They change the floor to the current day.  This is one of those quirky things that you forget about in between cruises so it’s fun to see when you get back onboard. Day 2, [...]
