JD Roth – Host of the Disney Channel’s Walt Disney World Inside Out, How YOU can get on TV, Spaceship Earth DSI: Disney Scene Investigation

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. Thank you for tuning in once again. This is show #72 for the week of June 22, 2008. I am your host Lou Mongello, and I am admittedly VERY excited about this week’s show

I won’t have any news or rumors this week, but will have an announcement before getting to my first guest.

And part of the reason why I’m so excited about this week’s show is because of whom my first guest is. Disney Channel fans may remember a series from the mid-90’s called Walt Disney World Inside Out, which took you literally behind the scenes of the parks every week. This week, I am joined by the one of the hosts of what was probably my favorite show on television, JD Roth. We’ll talk not only about his career and experiences on the show, but what he’s been doing ever since. You may now know that he is one of Hollywood’s hottest producers, with not only many popular reality and game shows to his credit, but he’s also going to be the host of a new show coming to ABC later this year unlike any other that’s been done in the past. And best of all, he’ll tell you how you and your family can be a part of it! And you don’t have to go to Hollywood – JD and the show will come to you!

Continuing in my 7 Wonders of Walt Disney World series, where we explore some of the things that truly make Walt Disney World such a magical place, this week we’ll take a detailed look back at the overwhelming choice of almost everyone who cast a vote. We’ll explore the history, story and technological marvels that make Spaceship Earth more than just an icon for a theme park. It’s a classic attraction that gives us all a sense of our collective past, and acts as a symbol of our hopes for the future.

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

    I had to write to tell you that I absolutely agree with your comments about the big reveal at the top of Spaceship Earth. My favorite part of the attraction was when your vehicle would turn around and almost simultaneously the narration would say Spaceship Earth as the picture of Earth appeared. It was breath taking and would give me goosebumps as the music would play and for a few moments I felt like I was floating in space looking down on the world. That moment is all but gone now with the new narration and it really takes something away from the big reveal. I also agree that the sounds during the attraction seem to be lower in volume. I found myself really trying hard to be able to catch everything that was being said.

    JD Roth’s comments about George Foreman were hilarious!!! Spaceship Earth truly is a wonder. An amazing feat of creativity, design, architecture and engineering. I do miss the old narration as well, but the interaction at the end to create personal e-cards was a nice touch. Love the smell of Rome burning as well! Really sticks with ya. But, hasn’t that been removed since the refurbishment? I don’t recall. Guess it’s time for a research trip! Great show, Lou. Thanks again!
