Disney News; Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream tour; contest winner and more

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is show #140 for the week of October 11, 2009. I am your host Lou Mongello, bringing a little bit of Disney magic to you each week in a fun, family-friendly show. Thank you for tuning in once again.

We’ll start off this week’s show with some news and some rumors coming from Walt Disney World, including the introduction of a new ride, a new tour and a new princess.

With the recent opening of the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, and some recent reminiscing about the extinct Walt Disney Story on Main Street, USA, the importance of Walt Disney, the man came up, especially in relation to the Disney parks. And while there are many references to him throughout Walt Disney World, many people unfortunately overlook an attraction that is much more than an interactive museum, as Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream is a tribute to the man who started it all, and an inspiration to future innovators. This week, friend and Disney historian Jim Korkis joins me from Disney’s Hollywood Studios as we take a tour through and detailed look at this attraction filled with hidden treasures.

I’ll announce the winner of last week’s contest, and give some additional information about upcoming events before playing more of your 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 at or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.

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

    Loved this attraction. Too bad it is being removed from HWS. I feel, there should always be somewhere on the WDW property for people to go and LEARN more about the history of Walt the man and all the magic he created. We need to keep the spirit/accomplishments of Walt alive on this side of the country in addition to the west coast, if not for us, for our children and grandchildren. Always thoroughly enjoy listening to Jim Korkis tell the tales and historical factoids of Walt, what he created, how it was created and all the backstories ‘behind’ the magic. Thanks again for another outstanding show, Lou!!!
