Join us for episode 215 of the Theme Park Trader podcast!

We told you we were going to keep things positive on this show for the foreseeable future and today is no exception to that rule. We try something a bit different this week by planning our 5-night trip to Orlando in September live as we record.

Obviously with isolation rules impacting our ability to do it in person, we recorded this via Zoom and using Google Sheets. We encourage everyone to stay at home safe when they can during this very difficult time.
