Thanks to All Star Vacation Homes for providing our “Home Base” during the show

To honor Walt Disney World’s 40th Anniversary on Oct. 1, 2011, rather than simply do another 24-hour live show (like we did in May, 2010)…

We’re going to broadcast 40 hours LIVE to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 40th Anniversary!

Join us in the parks or “in the box” as we broadcast live video beginning on Saturday, October 1 and ending 40 hours later on Sunday, October 2 at midnight.
