    The return of Captain EO was a big highlight for me this year. I remember going to it when it opened it the 80’s and it was exactly like I remembered it. I enjoyed watching it with my children and explaining the story to them.
    Great time!!

  2. Erica says:

    My top Disney moment of 2010 was my first Disney fan meet – the WDW Radio Walkabout at the Food & Wine Festival!

  3. Amy says:

    My top Disney moments of 2010 were getting engaged during Wishes at the California Grill, and meeting you at the Wine and Dine Marathon Finish Line party in Epcot! Getting to see my fiance, Anthony, meet you was an amazing moment, as was walking with you around Epcot. The German Party Line was a great moment too!!

  4. Chrissy says:

    …my top Disney moment was when my entire family was at the World in September to witness my sister get married at the Rotunda in the American Adventure at Epcot, and when Mickey and Minnie “crashed” the reception at the California Grill!!! 🙂

  5. I have to say the highlight of 2010 was being named Disney’s Biggest Fan and the trip that went along with it. We did so many incredible things during that trip in March. It will always be a very special trip for me and my family.

  6. Though finishing the 2010 Half Marathon was a close second…

  7. Mary Albright says:

    Top Disney Moments in 2010…

    Incentive Trip in June with private early entry to Magic Kingdom and after hours private party at MGM.
    Finally seeing Mulch, Sweat and Shears
    Having Lou finally email me and then meeting up in December
    Getting a sugar rush from Karamel Kuche
    Saving the world with my daughter…Kim Possible style…three more times
    Lunch with an Imagineer

    I think I’ll stop there.

  8. Michael Campe says:

    My top highlight for 2010 was chEARing my Sweetie through the Princess 1/2 Marathon…followed closely by my porking myself across the finish line at Expedition EVEREST 5K, meeting Lou who isn’t that short… who’s kidding my 12 year old daughter is taller, but he is so cute.

  9. Jenn says:

    Finally taking a girls-only trip with my BFF and matron-of-honor.
    Taking my mother and husband to Food and Wine festival!
    Seeing Captain EO, finally!
    Karmel Kuche.
    Star Wars Weekends + Empire Strikes Back anniversary = Win!
    Completing a 4-Park Challenge with BFF!
    Combining WDW Radio podcasts while scrapbooking my trips – Win!
    Getting a better job/career to fund future visits 🙂
    Trying out the Fireworks Dessert party…. yum!

  10. Emma Godbold says:

    My top five Disney moments of 2010 (in reverse order):

    5 – Taking part in my first WDW Radio Live show (I became an ‘In the Box’ person!!)
    4 – Hearing my Listener Email being answered by Lou and Beci on the show
    3 – Finally getting back to WDW in December 2010 (after a 5 year break)
    2- Attending the 200th episode party and meeting Lou

    And the mega TOP Disney moment of 2010 has to be……

    1 – Getting to spend the morning with my partner and Lou in the UK pavilion at Epcot, recording a segment for the show…..AWESOME!!!!

    Thanks Lou for making so many of my 2010 moments special.

  11. Alexis says:

    What is the name of the iphone App talked about in this episode?


  12. MarkW says:

    I think that Pixar films and characters will always be Pixar but also part of Disney now. This isn’t a bad thing — It’s part of a great happy eclectic Disney family. Let’s not try to change that… Thanks for a fun podcast episode! Tim and Lou are really great radio personalities!

  13. Rene Baron says:

    I was shocked to hear Lou say Golden Oaks was the first opportunity for us to buy a home in Disney World. Celebration was the first (1996) and the homes are a lot less than at Golden Oaks. As with Golden Oaks, everyone thought that Celebration residents would get special Disney deals. Not so. If Golden Oaks is like Celebration, it is a planned community. Disney owns it but as private people come in and buy homes the Disney-owned area is less and less and the private ownership is more and more. A planned community is governed by the owners and, at first, as the major owner, Disney has more say. As the place is built out and more and more comes into private hands, Disney has less votes on the board and the private owners have more. Celebration only has one or two Disney representative on the Celebration board at this time.

    I have owned in Celebration since 1998 and I love it! Living in Disneyland has been a lifelong dream of mine since my first visit to Disneyland in 1957. I feel like I’ve finally gotten my life’s dream with my home in Celebration. Disney World is even better than Disneyland for me. I go to one of the parks almost everyday. I’m living my dream!!!!

  14. Kristi Schmidt says:

    I know this show was all about Disney, but I think you made a big overlook my not mentioning the opening of Harry Potter at Universal. I’m a huge Disney freak, but we are skipping Disney Parks this year to really check out Harry Potter. I would think it benefits all the theme parks and local economy have something this new and exciting.

  15. Chuck Zitta says:

    Not sure if you have done Top 10 Disney Moments of the past year since this show, but sure did like it! I vote to bring ’em back, if you haven’t already. If you ever read this, that is. What a great way to kick off the new year. Your Top Tens with Tim are always a good listen. If Tim hasn’t been out to Disneyland yet, I think it’s time! Thanks again for another amazing show, Lou and Tim!!!
