Episode 39: Do or do not, there is no DDP - May 2021

Episode 39: Do or do not, there is no DDP - May 2021

The sun is shining and summer is on it’s way!

This month for our main show saw Claire taking the anchorman duties for the first time in quite a while. She was joined by the whole team of John, Sammie, Gill, Peter, Ben and of course Becca.

In the April show we had discussed the delights of off-site dining, including highlighting the benefits of choice, variety and of course - price! So this month the team chatted about the alternative option for onsite meals - The Disney Dining Plan - 04:50

Everyone in the team has experienced the Dining Plan in one form or another and so we shared views on not only the levels of the plan, what you get for your money, and indeed the million dollar question that is “Is the DDP EVER really free?”

We recognise that the dining plan isn’t currently an option, but looking forward to planning and booking into 2022 and beyond, we thought it was definitely something worth waffling about.
Then we introduced the newest segment to our shows- “Come Disney with Me” - 50:04

It’s a Wafflers’ take on the classic TV shows similar to Come Dine with Me, where every month, one member of the GBMW team will take the opportunity to present 3 things to their teammates and ask for their ratings and views!

The overall scores will be plotted on a Come Disney with Me leaderboard and we look forward to seeing who ends up at the top, and also who ends up near the bottom! Where will your favourite attraction or restaurant rank amongst our team?

Claire started us off with her choices of The Jungle Cruise, Katsura Grill and the Boo! To You Parade from Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Listen and see how we scored them - the outcome may surprise you!

Next month will be our 2 Year anniversary show! Who would believe that we have been Waffling along for 2 years!!! Ben will be steering the ship through the festivities and who knows where he will ask us to score from his choices in Come Disney with Me?!

As always, we are very busy here at the Great British Mickey Waffle - You can catch us live every week for Wafflers’ Wednesday at 8pm GMT (3pm EDT) on Facebook and YouTube.

We will be live this month on Friday 21st May for our Wafflers’ Assemble: Live show, so set your reminders now. We also have some special guests joining us to Share a Waffle on the 15th May so don’t miss that either.

If you want to find us on socials we are @GBMickeyWaffle on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Finally, Boris has now allowed us to offer outdoor seating at the Wafflers’ Arms so you can grab a chair and connect with others in our FB community (and you don’t even have to order a “substantial meal”).

The doors are wide open, the beer garden has some lovely new tables and chairs and we would love to see you.

Have a great month and Waffle On!
