Tip of the Week

This week's tip comes via Facebook from Dave Wang, who suggests that, if your shoes get wet (either from rain or a water ride) and you want them to dry out overnight, stuff them with wadded up sheets of newspaper before you go to bed. The newsprint will absorb the moisture from the shoes and dry them out by morning.

Mark suggested an alternative of throwing the sneakers in the dryer if you're at a DVC resort that has in-room laundry facilities.

Featured Attraction

This week, we look at Off Kilter at Epcot's Canada pavilion.

You can find Off Kilter on the Web at their own site.

Review System Spotlight

This week we take a look at the Bengal Barbecue at Disneyland Park. MousePlanet readers love it, rating it 4.3 out of five planets. Our featured review this week is by PiratesLifeforMe of the Bay Area.

Although PiratesLifeforMe thinks that the food at Bengal Barbecue is phenomenal, the beef was a little chewy during their last visit, prompting them to give it a 4-planet rating.

You can also find Bengal Barbecue in our Park Guide.

Video Game Review

Mike reviewed Toy Story Mania for the Wii. He found the game "easy to beat," and thought it was more of a rental game than a keeper. Mark reminded everyone that Mike is much better than the average gamer and his interpretation may not be typical of the average user.

Last Week on MousePlanet

Andrew Rich, down at MousePlanet Global Headquarters told you what you may have missed on the MousePlanet site last week if you're not visiting regularly.

Listener Feedback

Dean from New York City called in to the show quite a bit during his trip. We used the entire Listener Feedback segment for the first three days. We've got more audio from the rest of his trip coming up next week.
