We just returned from the WDW Radio Cruise on the Disney Dream, which was filled with 4 days of fun, friends, a little bit of Disney magic, and our very special guest, Disney Legend, Richard M. Sherman of the Sherman Brothers. This week, we’re going to recap the cruise, events, and some memorable moments, and I’ll also share information about the next WDW Radio Cruise on the Disney Fantasy in 2013.

    Many, many thanks for this once in a lifetime trip, Lou. Congratulations on your 300th show!

    I go back and forth on my favorite Sherman Brothers song, but I always come back to ‘Tall Paul’ : )

    Lou – Had a GREAT time on the cruise. My “Dream” and “Fantasy” was to meet Richard Sherman. Alas, I never got to in person, but I DID get to sing “Hundred Acre Wood” and “it’s a Small World” with him and ‘a few’ other people thanks to you! My favorite Sherman Brothers song is “Hushabye Mountain”. Can’t sing that song without tears coming to my eyes.

  5. Jim O says:

    So jealous I wasn’t there. Sounded like a totally memorable time! I will continue to live vicariously through you all. Can’t believe this was your 300th show! Thank you for continuing to inspire and bring Disney into our lives every day.

  6. Makena says:

    The cruise is probably one of my favorite moments ever. I meant a ton of new people and tried a lot of new things. So many things were jam-packed into four days! My favotite Sherman song is “Step In Time.”

  7. cindy alford says:

    my twin girls were dreaming of meeting Richard…. but we were motioned to not approach him at dinner… so they didn’t….. how can the girls correspand to him? they wanted to sing their song to him and dream of how to write music for Disney shows…..

  8. Craig Hargrove says:

    Congrats on doing 300 shows, and thank you for a wonderful recap of your cruise. My wife and I lived vicariously through you, and enjoyed hearing about the experience. It’s so good to know we’re not alone in our love and admiration of the Disney legacy that the Sherman Brothers have given us.

  10. Nicolas Lydecker says:

    Congrats on 300! Hopefully you have hundreds of shows to come!

  11. Ellen Hildenbrand says:

    What irony! While you were having a fantastic cruise, I was at WDW enjoying the last weekend of the food and wine and the first Mickey’s Very Merry!!!
    It’s ALL good!

  12. Chuck Zitta says:

    Well, this is it. Show number 300! Can’t believe I’ve actually written responses to the first 300 episodes, in addition to any of he more recent podcasts. One show at a time…

    Even more so, a belated congratulations to you, Lou and all the work and time you put into the show to make it happen! Well done on the first 300!

    Favorite Sherman Brothers song? Hard question. It’s A Small World, One Little Spark and A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow have to be my top attraction songs. Feed the Birds, I Wanna Be Like You, Let’s Go Fly a Kit and Chim Chim Cher-ee have to be some of my favorite movie songs.

    So many wonderful songs to choose from.

    Thanks again for another terrific show, Lou!!!
