-Heather introduces our topic Walt Disney World Recommendations for Young Families, and we launch into a discussion on height requirements at the parks, starting with Epcot. Once again, math rears it’s ugly head, and things just get worse when we try to figure out metrics.

-We take a walk around Future World and discuss the pavilions and what attractions are child friendly.

-Dave and his children were born giants.

-Heather gives some great suggestions for pre-trip preparation and you can hear my Michael Jackson.

-We hop the Monorail (kid friendly) and head over to the Magic Kingdom.  I can’t get anyone to sing “Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” with me.
