Walt Disney World With Special Needs; John Lennon, The Beatles and Walt Disney World – Interview with May Pang; New contest
Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello and this is show #103 for the week of January 25, 2009.
Iâ€™ll start off this week with some news from Walt Disney World, including some information about new interactive experiences coming to the parks, as well as the upcoming Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
Walt Disney World is a place where anyone and everyone can feel like a kid again, make their dreams come true, and enjoy all of what makes it so truly magical. And when I say everyone, I mean just that, as Disney is one of the best, most accommodating vacation spots for people with special needs. In this weekâ€™s very special roundtable, Iâ€™m joined by a number of guests, some of whom are authors of books about traveling to and touring around Walt Disney World with special needs, while others have unique needs of their own. And if you think that this segment might not apply to you or someone you know, you might be very surprised about what youâ€™ll hear.
My next interview is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. In response to a number of questions I received about this very topic, Iâ€™m going to talk about Walt Disney World, and its connection to the breakup of The Beatles. You might not know about how the two are linked, but Iâ€™m joined by May Pang, companion to John Lennon, who will talk about what took place at Disneyâ€™s Polynesian Resort, as well as Johnâ€™s visits to Walt Disney World with his son. Itâ€™s an interesting look back at some of the private times of a celebrity in Walt Disney World, and the historic event that took place there.
Iâ€™ll announce the winner of last weekâ€™s Walt Disney World trivia contest, and will challenge you once again this week with yet another contest!
Iâ€™ll have some announcements and then play back some of your voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
