Magic Our Way - Artistic Buffs Talkin' Disney Stuff

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. In fact, this is a special episode for us because we made it in to the land of double digits!!! And, we decided enter this realm in a big way by doing our "often teased, but never done" BIG DVC SHOW!!! On this episode, Danny and Kevin are joined by Danny's brother-in-law, Aaron. Aaron travelled with Danny during their trip in January 2013 and is also featured in our new upcoming mini-series, Field Reports...more on this later. 

It is our goal with this DVC show to give the potential buyer as much info to consider as we can so that hopefully you will make the right decision for your family. And we stress, every situation is different. This isn't your regular DVC show. We don't address the points system and how it works or the whole banking/borrowing thing. We feel other shows have covered it well and you as a potential buyer will have most likely gotten that information from somewhere on the internet. 

We fully explore topics such as the following:

  • fully considering your family situation
  • the annual dues and how are they are calculated and its relation to what home resort you purchase in to
  • the diminishing value of a DVC discount
  • cost-effective use of your points
  • the resale market vs. DVC
  • booking window, maid service, etc...

Now, if you want us to do a show on how the DVC works, let us know and we will do that for you. On this show, we are not just playing roles, but are actually living them. This is what I mean:

  • Danny is seriously considering the Disney Vacation Club
  • Kevin is in the Disney Vacation Club
  • Aaron has fully researched the Disney Vacation Club and has decided, at least for now, it is not the right decision for him and his family.

We will most likely do another show soon regarding the whole rent DVC points thing and other things we were not able to cover. So, if there is something that we didn’t get to or if you have a question regarding DVC that you would like us to explore, please don’t hesitate to email us. We want to hear from you. 

Now, the Field Reports!!! On this same Magic Our Way feed, we will release our Field Report series of mini-podcasts. These will not be a regularly occurring show as it will be recorded on our actual trips to a Disney park. We have a set of four shows ready for release ifor next week. Let us know what you think.

As always, if you like the show, please rate us and leave a review in the iTunes Store. We do appreciate you taking the time to do so. Also, you can find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@magicourway). Find some of our video statuses on Keek.com.

Jambeaux, everyone! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. This is show #009 and we are quickly cruising CLOSER into double digit mode!!! This week’s show is Kevin’s trip report to Walt Disney World which took place during the week of Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day. The Limited Time Magic promotion was called True Love Week. In regards to food, Kevin discusses his first time dining at the following: Olivia’s at the Old Key West Resort, the Hoop Dee Doo Revue at Fort Wilderness, and the Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort. Kevin professes his love for the lamb shank offering found at Gaston’s Tavern in the new part of Fantasyland. Following a challenge proposed during Danny’s trip report, Kevin ensured that he experience at least three new things during this visit. Well, he achieved that goal and definitely went beyond it.

Jambeaux. everyone!

Welcome to the 4th episode of Magic Our Way. This was supposed to be our Christmas show to be released on December 23, 2012. But, due to the flu, things got delayed. We still wanted to release this episode anyway because we found it to be one of our better shows. 

This week Kevin and Danny are joined by fellow QMark Productions podcasters, Eli and Mike from the And Another Thing Podcast...both of whom are Disney fans in their own right. For the Hub, we discuss rides that we never got a chance to visit because we were not inerested in them or we just never think to get around to it upon our visits. Also, we discuss the "one-and-done" attractions. These are those attractions that we have gone on once without feeling the need to repeat that experience again. For the Magic Our Way segment, we feature a piece of music arranged by New Orleanian, Kevin Caparotta. His arrangement of Jingle Bells can be heard performed by the Orlando-based vocal quartet, Return 2 Zero. Known by their Disney name, Four for a Dollar, Return 2 Zero used to be part of the preshow at the Beauty and the Beast Stage Show at Disney's Hollywood Studios, could have been be found in the Streets of America during the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and were performers at Sea World Orlando. 

Again, if you enjoy our show. please rate and leave us feedback in iTunes and using whatever social media you're into, let your friends know that you are listening to our show. You can also follow us on Twitter, Keek, and Facebook (@magicourway).
