-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.
-Lisa shares her favorite at the MK, Cinderella's Royal Table, followed by Dave's choice of Crystal Palace.
-A 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.
-A Disney Exchange Touring Tip! Book your La Hacienda ADR for around Illuminations time and ask for a table seat.
-Dave chooses Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom, and informs us of his favorite dish, so that Lisa and I may prepare it for him on his birthday.
-Lisa likes Via Napoli in Italy, and we discuss the lovely atmosphere.
-Next stop Disney's Hollywood Studios, and my favorite The Hollywood Brown Derby.
I discuss past favorites and the current menu, and Lisa shares here dining experiences there.
-Lisa's favorite is 50s Primetime Cafe and we discuss the server interaction experience and speculate on people unfamiliar with the atmosphere, and their possible reactions.
-Last, but not least Disney's Animal Kingdom and both Lisa's and my favorite Yak and Yeti, where we talk about the wonderful themeing and extensive menu, as well as favorite dishes.
-We talk about Tusker House's past incarnation as counter service and it's current buffet status.
- A Disney Exchange Touring Tip! If you are looking for a place to eat on Christmas Day, Tusker House will likely not be crowded.

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!
