On this week’s program, I drive West of Orlando to meet up with two adventurers named Drunky & Rhiannon who've just happened to write the best guide to Walt Disney World as far is this show is concerned. We geek out about boozing like pros at WDW!
We drank outside at Hurricane Hannah's,
and then we walked over to inside the Ale and Compass over at the Yacht Club,
and then enjoyed some beverages at The Belle Vue Lounge in the Boardwalk Inn.
