Mike provided our Tip of the Week, reminding you that designated drivers can get a special wristband at Pleasure Island. While it ensures that you can't buy alcohol, it should get you a couple of free sodas and a big thanks for keeping your group safe.
All Your Dollar Are Belong To Us
In this week's feature, we discussed all of the things that Disney does to make sure that they get as many of your vacation dollars as possible, pulling lots of information from Mark's story last fall. The Wikipedia reference to the original source of the story's title is here.
This week's Featured Attraction is the Remember ... Dreams Come True nighttime spectacular at Disneyland Park.
This week's Ask the Kid segment featured a voicemail question submitted by Dave Welty of Temecula, CA, who asked what Mark's son's favorite Walt Disney World resort is. (He picked three: Saratoga Springs, Old Key West and BoardWalk.)
This week's Magical Moment was an update from Kim Barron, a special person that Mark and Mike met during MouseFest.
We had a bit of listener feedback this week regarding last week's discussion of Disney opening up the Fairy Tale Weddings program to same-sex commitment ceremonies. We discussed our poor choice of wording on some points last week, and apologize to anyone who may have been offended by it.
Don't forget that Mike is giving away his copy of Spectrobes for free to the first person to request through our podcast email address. Somebody ask for it. Please. He doesn't want it.

Mark is once again participating in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica event. Please check out his pledge page for more information, or to donate. If you'd rather donate to other causes supported by folks in the Disney Internet community, Deb Wills (AllEarsNet) is raising money to fight breast cancer and Lou Mongello (Disney World Trivia) is raising money for the Starlight Starbright Foundation to send terminally-ill children to Walt Disney World.
