With Diagon Alley officially opening in less than 48 hours these next couple of days will be hard for all of us Potter fans. We got two of the biggest local names in hospitality journalism together to share their experiences from the media preview of Diagon Alley and Hogwarts Express. Seth Kubersky of Orlando Weekly and Touring Plans plus Banks Lee of Attractions Magazine joined us for an in-depth discussion into their experiences at Universal’s recent media event.
Nick Hotel is a massive resort. With 24 acres, 777 suites and half a million guest per year this resort sits in its own category.
We were recently invited to come and stay at Nick Hotel. While on our mini-staycation we had a party in the room with a few other bloggers and recorded a special segment for Orlando Tourism Report. Shelly from On the Go in the MCO and Teresa from Making It All Work plus CFLTop5’s Jen Vargas join Kyle and Ken for an in-depth discussion.
Then after our stay Ken and Kyle are joined by the rest of the OTR crew for some final thoughts on the hotel.
The crew is recording when the first pictures of cranes from Animal Kingdom’s Avatar hit the internet, today we have the recording of their initial reactions to the pictures and what they expect from this project.
With any conversation that features numerous people sometimes parts of the conversation don’t make the final cut for the show. Instead of forever losing those (hopefully) interesting tangents we decided to post smaller, bite size podcasts to keep you going between our larger episodes. Here is our first one. We wanted to call it random tangents but we also wanted to have at least a few of you listen to it so instead we went with the name SideChat. Hope you enjoy.
