D23 Destination D Recap Roundtable and Disney Trivia Contest

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #287 for the week of August 12, 2012.

I just returned from attending Destination D: 75 Years of Disney Animated Features, presented by D23 at the Disneyland Hotel. It was a weekend filled with presentations by Disney artists and Imagineers such as Tony Baxter, producers like Don Hahn, John Musker and Ron Clements, Disney Legends, voice talents, fun, and Disney history and much more. We looked into the future through sneak peeks at Wreck-It Ralph, Paperman and Frozen, and capped off each night with amazing concerts by Dick Van Dyke and Alan Menken. On this week’s show, we’ll recap the events and share our thoughts of the event, D23 and the future in our roundtable discussion recorded live in Disneyland.

I’ll then have the answer and winner for last week’s Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new question for your chance to win a Disney prize package!

Be sure and stay for the announcements, 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!

    I am a D23 member and love it! haven”t made any of the events>(will one day), but the magazine alone is worth the membership.

    I LOVE the legends and how it all began.

  2. Stephanie Gittin says:

    I am not a member yet but I would love to become one. I would love to go to the events they sound like so much fun.

  3. Stephanie says:

    I am not a member…..yet but I plan to become one in the near future. I would love to go to theses events once I do become a member.

  4. Krista Joy says:

    I heard some negativity about D23 on some other podcasts recently. Something about D23 is where Disney charges you to join a club that will charge you to go to more events. It was interesting to hear you all share your positive support and get another angle on the matter. Thank you!

  5. Lou Mongello says:

    Thank you for your comments and believe that you will enjoy all that D23 has to offer.

    Krista, I sincerely appreciate you sharing your thoughts. I’m very happy with my membership and the events, whether I was doing the podcast or not. I had a great time at each of the D23 events, from the Expo to Destination D, the Studios tours, Fanniversaries, tweetups, etc.

  6. Victoria Keech says:

    Beautiful tribute to Nolan at the beginning of the show!

    With that being said, I really hope I can participate in a D23 event real soon!!

  7. Chuck Zitta says:

    Yes, became a D23 member last fall. And yes, listening to the experiences you and guests have had at past D23 events, I would very much so like to attend future D23 events. Sounds like an amazing experience.

    Thanks again for another spectacular show, Lou and guests!!!
