LIVE from Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival, Interview with the Manager of Disney’s Dream Squad, Kilimanjaro Safari tour with Director of Animal Operations, Festival review and more!

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is show #60 for the week of March 30, 2008. I am your host Lou Mongello, and this week I am coming to you LIVE from Walt Disney World, as I am standing on the promenade of World Showcase in Epcot, enjoying the sights, sounds and scents of the 15th Annual Epcot Flower and Garden Festival.

Thank to the assistance of the Walt Disney World Company and so many wonderful Cast Members, I have a special show for you this week, as I not only have a review of the Festival from right here from the park, but an exclusive interview with someone whose job it is to really make dreams come true, as she is Carrie Schoen, the Manager of the Disney Dream Squad, and she will reveal what it’s like to truly make magic, a day in the life of a Dream Squad member, what’s in store for 2008 and more.

As we get ready for Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s 10th Anniversary next month, I will also take you along with me on a ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari unlike any that you have taken in the past, as John Lehnhardt, Director of Animal Operations for Disney’s Animal Kingdom gives us a fascinating tour of the Safari that you can’t get anywhere else. Ride along with us on this personal tour that is a fun, informative adventure.

There’s much more on this week’s show, so sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    Hey Lou! Is this your first live show from the parks??? Love, love, love the intro music for this episode, which is on the Vacation Planning DVD. Oh, what a job it would have been to be part of the Disney Dream Squad. To see the expressions on peoples faces as they received their dreams would have been amazing! Just listening to this episode makes my day that much better. Another fantastic episode. Thank you, Lou.
