Listen to the Show

Adventurers Club, Food & Wine and Expedition Everest Challenge Recap Roundtable, New Contest, Disney News and More!

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello and this is show #138 for the week of September 27, 2009. Thank you for tuning in once again.

There’s no news this week, as I prepare to head out to Walt Disney World this week for the Adventurers Club event, Expedition Everest Challenge, and of course, the start of Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival. And to that end, we’ll begin this week’s show with an interview with Epcot’s Executive Chef, Jens Dahlmann. We’ll discuss what’s new and exciting during the six-week, entertainment-packed events, filled with fine cuisine and wines from around the world.

And since planning your Walt Disney World vacation is the first and often most critical step, I’ll talk this week with three experts in doing just that, as members of the 2009 Walt Disney World Mom’s Panel join me to talk about the panel, share their stories and experiences, as well as some tips and advice for travelers and potential future panelists.

I’ll play many more of your listener voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

You can email the show or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

Video Highlights from Disney’s D23Expo – Day 1 and 2

Thanks to listener (and fellow Adventurer!) Jaxum in the forums for these videos from the Adventurers Club event on Thursday, September 24, 2009:

Adventurers Club Final Hoopla!

The Adventurer’s Club- The Bulter Graves
While we were having dinner, the permanent members of the Adventurer’s Club mingled with the crowd. These clips focus on the butler Graves as he makes his announcements to everyone and walks around with this ‘dingie’ bell.

The Adventurer’s Club- Otis T Wren
While we were having dinner, the permanent members of the Adventurer’s Club mingled with the crowd. These clips focus on Otis, while also including the wonderful and darling Sugar Snap!

The Adventurer’s Club- The Goddess Babylonia
The Goddess Babylonia. What an amazing presence she commands! And if you need to find the restrooms, she will show you the way! She had us laughing, smiling, singing, and spellbound. While it was a short moment she gave us, and I do wish she would have kept going, it was another memory to add to the list for the evening.

The Adventurer’s Club- The Mask Room
This video was taken toward the end of the evening in the Mask Room. There was quite a bit more to it, but the video was quite dark since the room was also, and I was near the door, so I was getting more sound from outside the Mask Room, so that part was cut.

The Adventurer’s Club- Their Final Farewell
This was the saddest moment of the evening. I don’t think there was a dry eye, or at least moistened eye, in the room, from the presenters to all us.

    Love the discussion about ‘running in the rain’. Your discussion was too funny! You guys REALLY need to work on your singing (not that I could do any better). Thanks again for another fantabulous show, Lou!!!
