Hello my friends and fellow WDW Radio Cruisers!

Can you believe we are just DAYS (almost single digits!!) away from our cruise on the Disney Dream?!? The countdown is almost over… but wait! There’s still more I want to share with you!

As you probably know, our work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America is very personal and important to me and so many other members of our WDW Radio family. Thanks to your help and support, we have done some amazing things and truly made “magic” for children families that needed it.

So this year, we wanted to help make some of that magic while on the cruise! How? With our inaugural WDW Radio Charity Raffle At Sea! Though a “Chinese Auction” format, you can get raffle tickets in exchange for a donation to Make-A-Wish and place them in containers for these collectibles, experiences, and one-of-a-kind items!

  1. Dinner with Lou, Beci, and the WDW Radio Team at Palo on WDW Radio Cruise 3.0, along with a Disney Fantasy Maiden Voyage baseball hat
  2. An autographed Vinylmation from the EPCOT 30th celebration, including signatures from animators, Disney legends, and the WDW Radio team
  3. A snack-around World Showcase with Lou during your next Walt Disney World vacation (includes snacks at no less than 5 World Showcase nations). [This item includes auction winner and one other guest and admission to Epcot is not included..]
  4. One-of-a-Kind, customized Orange Bird drawing created by Disney Character Artist Casey Jones, as well as Citrus Swirl meetup for two with Casey and Lou Mongello.
