-Main Topic: Favorite Table Service in the Parks at Walt Dinsey World

-The Disney Exchange is David Hodges, Lisa Green, and me Nicholas Maglio

-We establish the ground rules for picking ONE favorite table service restaurant in each of Walt Disney World’s 4 theme parks. Not surprisingly, the rule is we can only pick ONE.

-I start us off at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom and abuse the French language, so I apologize to our French speaking fans.

-Lisa appears to be building her own personal staff, starting with a Sommelier.

-Lisa doesn’t care for the “battering ram” of desserts at Be Our Guest, we learn from Dave the French actually serve desserts on battering rams.

The Disney Exchange Touring Tip! (A new feature I just came up with-Trademark Pending)

Book the Crystal Palace before park opening and you can get great shots of Main Street and Cinderella Castle before the crowds.

-We hop on the Monorail and go to Epcot. Yes, I call the Monorail Pilot a Captain in the show. I apologize to all our Monorail Pilot fans.

-I share my favorite of La Hacienda de san Angel.

Probably my favorite fact I’ve learned about Lisa from this Podcast is that she carries an unopened Donald Duck Pez dispenser around with her for emergencies!
