Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #195 for the week of November 7, 2010.

I’ll open up the inbox again this week and answer more of your questions on topics including taking an infant to Walt Disney World; caricature artists in the parks; finding old props from Horizons, World of Motion and other extinct attractions; a trivia question about the very first guest to enter the Magic Kingdom; best places to stay at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort; how to show your appreciation for Cast Members and more!

I’ll announce the details for the next WDW Radio Meets of the Month in Walt Disney World, some other upcoming Disney Meets, a few other announcements and of course your voicemails. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

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

    Great show this week guys! The one attraction I would LOVE to see return would be 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. That might be a little difficult considering the lagoon is now filled in for the expansion of Fantasyland, but I think it would be cool if they put it in the river over at Animal Kingdom 🙂

    Hope to see you at this month’s meet of the month!

    Do they have to be good and gone? Or do “mere shadows of their former selves” also count? Because the first things that come to my mind are the original Imagination ride with the Dreamfinder as well as the Enchanted Tiki Room’s old management. 😛

    Another great show, sincere thanks to both of you.

    The one attraction I’d like to bring back is, no doubt, the original Journey Into Imagination. No attraction at WDW, not even mainstreet at night, gives me the nostalgic ‘warm and fuzzies’ that I get when thinking about the original incarnation of this attraction. What is currently present is a compromise, and while compromise is crucial in many parts of life, passion of creation is almost always lost in compromise. I will forever miss the original animatronic Figment(s) (who I can now view at One Man’s Dream). It made my day when I ran into The Dreamfinder walking around the park a few years ago, if only they still did this regularly and he had Figment in tow.

    Honorable mentions: Horizons, If You Had Wings, World of Motion, Walter Cronkite’s SSE, and the Skyway (even as a child I loved getting to see past the facades of the buildings)

    Thanks again guys!

    TMI Beci! Have to agree with Lou on that one! LOL!!! Bring back Mr. Toad at MK, the entire Wonders of Life Pavilion as it originally was at EPCOT and now that it’s gone; One Man’s Dream and the Art of Animation at HWS. Thanks again, for another informative show, Lou & Beci!!!
