We are 26 days out from our Disney trip!!! Now that everything is planned and we are in “wait mode” I want to start watching some good YouTubers. Does anyone have any that the really like watching?? And what about apps? I have the liners app and MDE. Are there any others that I need?
Those are the only apps that I have but I’m sure others will chime in on that.
You tube their are several I like: #1 is Tim Tracker followed by the DIS. If you want ride info Pammie Plus Parks is excellent she goes in detail about any concerns about ridding a ride. Their are many others but these are the ones I follow.
We regularly watch the DFB Guide vlogs.
We also will watch the DIS Unplugged…although I don’t enjoy them nearly as much. They are seemingly very disorganized. Like they decide a few minutes before recording, “Okay. Here’s the topic. Think of some things to say when I call on you.” But now and then there are some interesting topics covered.
Fixed that for you.
Their dinning reviews are usually good the others are more of an open forum.
Hey missed you the last few days.
I have been tweaking my plans like crazy the last few days. It is driving my husband crazy. I thought watching some vlogs might help me with that problem!
Which one? Dis or DFB?
We had a thread for apps not too long ago, this should give you some ideas:
I assume he meant DIS, since the DFB doesn’t have open forums. DIS does all the time.
DIS. I think Pete feels this lets them be more honest.
Is Pete the older guy? (I forget their names.)
We were recently watching one where he was doing a review one of the hotel rooms at BLT I think it was. Anyhow, I swear he just kept saying, “This is really nice, guys. I can’t tell you. It is nice. Really nice. I’m just impressed. It is so nice. Really nice. I mean, wow. This is nice.”
Okay. I get it. You think it is really nice. But we didn’t need you to say it over and over for 15 minutes! I just wish they could be a bit more efficient with the time they spend, editing better, or preparing better. As a result, I find myself only watching them if I’m REALLY REALLY interested. Really interested. You know? Like interested, a lot. Really.
On the other hand, A.J. on DFB may repeat herself a lot, and show a lot of the same footage, but she is efficient about it, makes it interesting, and, honestly, has a speaking voice that is just lovely to listen to. Her vlogs aren’t perfect. The repeated same footage across videos sometimes gets old, and there are times where I think, “Is there anything she DOESN’T like at Disney?” She is always very nice about things. And yet, when there is a new video, I find myself wanting to watch it with my wife…even if it is something we don’t really care that much about!
Yes Pete is the older guy with the flat top. I like AJ also but sometime I feel they or she leaves out details why they like something or dislike.
ah, I was actually reading that as if you meant “more open to debate by the viewer” hahah.
And that’s why I don’t really watch the Dis much at all. I find their views either extremely vague, like you just pointed out, or they will lavish praise or criticism on things I would find very inconsequential. I remember watching one vid and the guy was just complaining continually because the service was a tad slow during an extremely busy time. Another where they were thrilled that they emptied the trash cans or something.
As far as DFB, agreed on all points, but I have seen her complain when things change, and for good or worse makes no difference. The one that springs to mind was the carrot cake cookie. Which is still absolutely delicious, but to hear her describe it seemed that I should’ve expected something pulled out of a dumpster.
I think in the case of you and I, we’re in it for different reasons. Food is the LEAST likely reason we would watch a video, even with DFB…despite “Food” being in the name!
The other thing I think sets DFB ahead for me is that they are constantly using park footage as opposed to sitting around a studio with the camera SUPER FRIGGIN CLOSE to their faces with only a few cuts to show what they’re talking about here and there.
It’s a bit uncomfortable to watch when you can see nosehairs.
Because we are flying the Delta app, Amazon movie app and download a few movies for offweb watching, and the FB messenger app since it’s free during the flight. Other than those I try too keep apps at a minimum.
Yes. I agree with that!
But I wish I could tell A.J. to swap out ONE bit of footage from her videos. Because it drives me mad. There is a scene where it is a long shot of the castle, and there is a pair of people on the left curb where one accidentally misses it and stumbles. I now anticipate it, and find myself willing the person to watch out! Never works, of course, and the poor person stumbles over and over every single video it seems!
HAHAHAHAHAH YES!!! That poor girl constantly missing the curb. I feel so bad for her that she’s immortalized in the weirdest way possible. It’s doubly weird when they do the same shot twice or more in the same video.
A good weather app. Some mention Dark Sky or Accuweather.
