Listen to the Show

Disney news and rumors, 7 Wonders of WDW, Best of the Best strategies, trivia, your emails, voicemails, and more!

Welcome back to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World information Station, hosted by Lou Mongello. Thanks for tuning in once again. This is Show #14 for the week of May 13, 2007.

On this week’s show, we’ll start as always with some News & Views from Walt Disney World where I’ll talk about some changes coming to some elements of the WDW transportation system as well as to FASTPASS. We’ll also discuss some recent rumors that are now official, and on this week’s trip to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill, I’ll talk about some rumors for an extinct attraction in the Magic Kingdom, the Leave a Legacy sculptures in Epcot, and more.

Jeff Pepper joins me once for a very detailed discussion of our next in the 7 Wonders of Walt Disney World. This time, we explore the history, trivia, architecture, changes and significance of a true iconic wonder – Cinderella Castle. We also discuss why it’s a true wonder, as well as it’s significance to so many people. At the end of this segment, I will announce the next entry in the 7 Wonders series, as I want to enlist your help and ask you to share your comments, thoughts and experiences via voicemail for an upcoming show. This will give you the chance to talk about something that I think we all agree is a truly magical part of Walt Disney World.

A number of listener emails was the catalyst for this week’s Best of the Best at Walt Disney World segment, as Pam Forrester from The Magic For Less Travel and I discuss the best resort strategies for parties of 4 or more when traveling to Walt Disney World.

Speaking of your feedback, I’ll answer more of your emails and play your voicemails at the end of the show so sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio show.

    Hi Lou,

    You mentioned in this podcast that the Sorcerer’s Hat at MGM blocked the Chinese Theater. What do you think Cast Members will do regarding photography now that it’s gone?

    Dig the castle review with Jeff Pepper. Very informative. Regarding Colleen’s comment above, that’s a good question. What are the Cast Members doing now regarding photos? Is it possible Disney legal worked something out with the real Chinese Theater regarding this matter??? Would be interesting to know. Thanks for another great show, Lou!
