Listen to the Show

Walt Disney World Character Connection – Davy Crockett

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello and this is show #145 for the week of November 15, 2009. Thank you for tuning in once again.

This week’s show looks at a unique Character Connection in Walt Disney World, as the individual in question may have been one found in Disney films, but was also one that started a cultural phenomenon, and was not really a character at all, but an historical American folk hero. Of course, he is Davy Crockett, and he and his trademark coonskin cap were popularized by Disney on TV in the mid-1950’s. He also has many connections to Walt Disney World as well, and this week I’m joined by one of the foremost experts on Davy Crockett and longtime Walt Disney World fan to explore his connections in and around the parks.

Listen for 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 or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.

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

    I remember the coonskin caps when visiting Disneyland back in 1973. Weren’t there also guns and other cool things (for a young boy) that you could get back then? Very cool to listen to you and Bill cover the legend of Davy Crokett. Thanks again for taking me back AND for another terrific show, Lou!!!
