Listen to the Show

WDW News, Wayback Machine travels to River Country, email and more.

This week, I once again have to record and produce the show early, so it may be a little shorter and a little different than usual. I’l start off as always with some Walt Disney World News, where I’ll discuss an exciting new promotion for Annual Passholders.

In my trip aboard the Walt Disney World Wayback Machine, I’m going to grab my swimming trunks, pick up Jeff Pepper, and head on over to the Ole Swimmin’ Hole at River Country, Walt Disney World first water park, and a place that conjures up great memories of water slides, sand beaches, picnics and some great times spent with family. Now closed, it’s a fun look back at the history, attractions and demise of this very unique destination.

I’ll also have time to answer some more of your emails this week, so sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    I can say, we were never fortunate enough to experience River Country. Would like to see River Country tie in with the Country Bear Jamboree, the old west, Thunder mountain railroad, Woody, etc. Create a back story to bring them all together. That would be fun. Of course, I don’t think the natural water would cut it in today’s society. Would have to give the park a major overhaul and bring it up to the level of the other 2 water parks, but with a western/old fashioned back story. Anyway, that’s my 2 cents. Thanks again for another great show Lou!
