WDW news and rumor mill, Hidden Mickeys at the Seas with Steve Barrett, Afternoon Tea at the Garden View Tea Room, Listener emails

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is show #59 for the week of March 23, 2008. As always I am your host Lou Mongello, and thanks for taking time to tune in again this week.

I will begin this week with News coming out of Walt Disney World which includes information about some new Mickey ears that you can customize and design yourself, the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival, as well as news from the Studios and resorts. In the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill, I’ll talk about cars in the Magic Kingdom – and I’m talking about the attraction and not the movie, a new character you just might see walking (or rolling) around Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as some of the cast of characters that you might just see walking around during Star Wars Weekends this summer.

Steve Barrett, author of the Hidden Mickeys series of books will join me this week as we start a new series of themed Hidden Mickey hunts, and we’ll begin under the sea (literally) at the Seas pavilion in Epcot.

Listener Sarah Kelleth and I will take a look at yet another one of Walt Disney World’s Hidden Treasures and simple pleasures, as we one of the most unique dining experiences in all of Walt Disney World – afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa’s Garden View Tea Room.

I’m way behind in answering your listener email, so I’ll respond to some of your questions, which include topics such as making reservations for 2009, Grand Gatherings, the clubs of Pleasure Island, DeVine, the Tiki Room and more.

So sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    Anyone up for tea? Interesting episode. Wish I were a tea drinker. What I did get out of that segment was that it would probably be less expensive for my wife and I to not get the dining plan when we decide to go without the kids – as we are close to being empty nesters. Lot’s of helpful information in this episode. Thanks again, Lou!
