WDW Radio # 343 – Remembering Diane Disney Miller – November 24, 2013


Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #343 for the week of November 24, 2013.

This week, we will remember and celebrate the life of Walt Disney’s daughter, Diane Disney Miller, who passed on November 19, 2013. We look back at her life, growing up with Walt Disney as her dad, her influences on him, marriage to Ron Miller, work at preserving her father’s legacy, the Walt Disney Family Museum, and many personal, firsthand stories about Diane, the true keeper of her father’s flame.

I’ll have the answer to our last Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new challenge for your chance to win a Disney prize package.

Stay tuned as I’ll have some updates and announcements and more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

  1. Eric B. Freeman says:

    Poor Walt’s daughter. We wish that she’s still alive today. :,(

  2. Karen says:

    Loved hearing Jim Korkis talk about his memories of Diane Disney Miller. He wrote a wonderful tribute and you can tell that she really touched his life with her genuine devotion to spreading the true story of Walt Disney the man.
    However, editing is needed at 59:18 I think, regarding which daughter is being discussed, unless I misunderstood the conversation at that point.

  3. Wendy says:

    When she was young, some one in her class asked Diane for her Dad’s autograph. Diane went home, asked her Dad, are you really Walt Disney? What a wonderful memory

    I loved this episode! As many others, I am intrigued with the private daughters’ lives and even the grandkids. I do wish we still had a Disney family member active in the higher ranks of the company. I would like for you to take Jim up on his offer of doing an episode about Ron Miller, his relationship with Walt, and his tenure as President. In this podcast, I am reading between the lines…. why did Roy, Jr. have Ron ousted as President/CEO? A friend of mine who worked at Disneyworld in 1982 for years stated that Ron was creative and a great leader…. for most around him thought “What would Walt do?” and Ron met resistance a lot. I would like to know more about what Jim knows about Ron’s contribution. Obviously his ousting was painful enough for Diane to move away and distance herself from the company. That makes me sad. Where do the grandkids stand today with the company?

  5. Chuck Zitta says:

    To me, the Walt Disney Family Museum is Diane Disney Miller’s greatest contribution to preserving her father’s legacy. Though I still have not visited the museum, I HAVE listened to the WDW Radio episode which includes your roundtable discussion which relates to this topic. And based on that, I would have say this is a place every Disney fan should make a point to visit. Hope to get there myself one day.

    It’s always a pleasure listening to Jim talk about all the historical details of Disney related topics.
    And this episode really hit home.

    Thanks again for another fabulous show, Lou and Jim!!!
