Welcome back to Beyond the Berm for Episode 59!
As we begin, Matt asks about some Disney tips, since we have both been to the parks several times, and we have been on a few cruises as well. Which line should you pick? Where should you get a Dole Whip? Which day is good for visiting a water park? Listen in as we share the tips we come up with!
Next, Steve mentions a book he got that was written and illustrated by his friend Kyle Gentry. The book, Tourist! Year 1, is a series of drawings that Kyle made while visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks every week for a year. It is pretty entertaining, so you might want to check it out! Tell Kyle you heard about it here on Beyond the Berm!
Up next, Matt has tickets for his family to see the new Star Wars movie, and we talk about that a bit. Do you have your tickets yet? Or are you going to take a chance on it not being sold out?
That leads to some discussion about planning things in advance, or perhaps not planning in advance, as Steve is doing more and more these days. Are you a planner, or do you just take things as they come?
Matt then talks about his family’s trip to Disneyland this past weekend, and about all of the fun that they had there, including seeing many of the Halloween-themed offerings that were there. After he talks about seeing some of the characters, we get into a discussion of face characters verses masked characters, and some other aspects of visiting with the characters as well, including the bizarre “head and feet” rehearsals for shows.
All this and even more in the newest episode of Beyond the Berm!
