Your Panel - The Modified Edition

This panel for this week's show is...

Doobie: The author of this article and the co-owner of Doobie has been a Disney fan since 1995 and has visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World literally thousands of times though he's never worked there. His favorite attractions are the restaurants. Doobie is the father of a 2 1/2 year old little boy named Gideon and a very patient (with Gideon and my new indoor mini remote control helicopter) dog named Happy.

Rebekah: The other co-owner of and Doobie's wife. She's a life-long Disney fan who's also visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World thousands of times. She's a big fan of the 70s Disney, especially the 70s Mickey Mouse Club. Her daily job at requires her to keep her finger on the pulse of all things Disney. She's the sensible one in the crew (just checkout podcast #19 for proof) She also has a 2 1/2 year old little boy. She also has been patient with the helicopter.

Donny: Sitting in for Captain Jon this recent transplant to Central Florida doesn't really know anything about Disney so we thought he'd be a perfect fit.

FanBoy: FanBoy knows his Disney from both the fan perspective and the business perspective. He's also a fellow Angel fan - the real reason we like him.

"Normal" Panelist Not on This Show

Captain Jon: Another life-long Disney fan who comes at things from a slightly younger point of view. He's especially adept at dreaming up new Disney attractions, but ultimately, he's a pirate with all that that entails. His favorite movie is, of course, Pirates of the Caribbean. His hits include the very popular, now retired, but occasionally returning Captain's Challenge.
