Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin – History, Secrets, Surprises and Stories
Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #225 for the week of June 5, 2011.
In Walt Disney World, the concept that â€œeverything speaksâ€ holds true not just for attractions and shows, but restaurants, environments and even the resorts. And with that, it means that everything see you encounter tells a story, and every detail has meaning, even in places you might not otherwise expect. And that holds true for the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. This week, weâ€™ll take a very close look at the interesting history of these resorts, their theming, secrets, and myths that surround them as well. Itâ€™s a fascinating look into two buildings with a deeper Disney connection and story than you might expect.
Stay tuned for some information about upcoming events including our fundraising for Japan before playing 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!
