In the 97th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave welcome back to the show their very own Quasi Producer Heather, as they tackle what has become a tricky trio of topics.. Park Tickets... Park Hoppers... and Park Pass Reservations.

First up, a list of quick hit news topics, including masks on Skyliners... the Aloha show says Aloha... Vic & Al's coming back... new DVC resorts... Tumble Monkey's tumble again... another Guardians update... and Universal sensory rooms and park pass polling. 

Then, some good chatter about the ins and outs of buying tickets at Disney World in this post-Covid era, along with getting your park pass reservations, and when to use park hoppers - and do you even need park hoppers?  Plus, opinions on pros and cons of the way it's being done, including Heather's defense of Park Pass Reservations.
