Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2011 Recap Roundtable

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #205 for the week of January 16, 2011.

This past weekend, more than 54,000 athletes from around the world descended on Walt Disney World, as many do year after year, not for the attractions, shows or dare I say even the wonderful dining options, but to run. And run a lot.

The Walt Disney World Marathon weekend encompassed a series of endurance events, in which individuals came out to fulfill personal goals, experience the parks like never before, and for many, to make a difference in not just their own lives, but the lives of others. So on this week’s roundtable, we’ll look at the Walt Disney World Marathon as well as some other endurance events, and possibly introduce you to the idea that it’s not just for athletes, but for friends and entire families as well. Whether you visit to run, cheer, volunteer or for your favorite charity, it’s one of the most amazing experiences any Disney enthusiast can enjoy.

I’ll have a few announcements, and then play some of your voicemails at the end of the show, 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!

  1. How busy is EPCOT during the Wine and Dine marathon weekend? I am headed to Disney that week and was curious about crowd levels. We are not planning on doing the marathon so it would just be the Food and Wine Festival for us.

  2. Hey Lou, great show once again. I was wondering how hard it would be for you to list the background music used on the show in the show notes? I know, thats all you need is more work.
