A very brief surprise Dave Does Disney bonusode! Without warning, Dave went to Magic Kingdom on Saturday to check out the very first open section of the New Fantasyland. This episode isn’t funny, but look at all the pretty Disney magic!
After a seemingly endless delay, Dave FINALLY takes on the theme park that currently has no official affiliation with MGM outside of the Great Movie Ride!

The thrilling saga of some dork’s trip to Walt Disney World continues! Today, Dave looks at a theme park dedicated to The World, whether that world is Of The Future or Being Showcased.
TIME FOR BACKSTORY!
When I was in Orlando last spring, I, a lifelong Disneyland fan, visited Walt Disney World for the first time, and I knew I needed to create a historical document of the event. Because THE WORLD WOULD DEMAND IT.
Originally, I just wanted to do a silly goofing-off-at-a-theme-park video, like those Christmas Shopping videos I did. Unfortunately, my
dorkiness insanity desperate need for attention passion for the subject matter caused it to grow into something beyond my control: a snarky-yet-affectionate park-by-park analysis of the Walt Disney World resort.
Needless to say, the newly-expanded project took me a lot longer to edit than I anticipated (partially because it was so complex, partially because I had other priorities). When the first one alone took almost a year, I decided to wait until I had at least a few done (and the rest close to done) before I started releasing them.
Now that I’m on my way back to Florida for the rest of the year, I figure it’s time to release episode one before I’m tempted to just go back to the parks and start over from scratch. So let’s start off with Magic Kingdom, and the watering down of all my Disneyland memories!

First thing’s first: Here’s the YouTube playlist for the PAX East 2011 Saturday Night Concert, featuring Video Game Orchestra, Paul and Storm, and Jonathan Coulton. A very fun, very late night.
Second: I finished the single player campaign of Portal 2 three days ago, shot this vlog two days ago, edited/rendered yesterday, and uploaded overnight. I try to talk about how much I liked the game without spoiling anything, which is harder than you may think.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
Here’s the final two PAX East videos that I actually made any effort to edit! First up, a condensed look at what it was like to watch Gabe and Tycho make their strip in front of our eyes. Set to a song by The Who, because why not.
Next, Eric and I play a bunch of board and card games!
All that’s left is the footage from the Saturday night concerts, which is uploading now, although YouTube is being even slower than usual today. And after that, we’re done with PAX East footage and can finally move on to other things, like a list of my favorite salad dressings.
But look at me, still blogging when there’s Portal 2 to play.
