The Disney podcast about teens and tweens that you didn't know you needed. Listen to two traveling dads highlight their kids personal Disney stories

Podcast Synopsis and Timeline

We woke up yesterday, it seems, and our four collective older kids were all tweens and teens.  Mild panic set in, followed by some hyper-ventilating.  We had so many questions that we were unprepared to answer about our kids at this age.  This podcast topic was going to have such a huge impact on their life (that may be hyperbole).  We here at the Don’t Make Me Pull This Flying Elephant Over podcast, ask only the toughest questions.  We started with the toughest of all:  Will our kids still like Disney parks, now that they’re older?  Followed closely by:  If my kids stop liking the Disney sweets that they did when they were young children, who will we mooch off of when we finish ours too quickly?  SERIOUS QUESTIONS PEOPLE!  Are thrill rides all they crave now?  Did Mufasa’s kids suddenly start liking the Tower of Terror, or are they still haunted by past experiences? Should you book a Disney World vacation if you’ve got older kids?

Teens and Tweens on Disney Cruise Line

19:25 Which Disney Cruise Line club did Vader’s daughter go with?  The tween club Edge was expected, but thanks to a waiver, Vader’s 13 year old chose the teen club Vibe instead.  Good decision?
