    Isn't WDWRadio "your information station"? You can't tell me he's not giving us information. I've listened to Lou since before he went on his own. I look at it as he's "plussing" what he has done. His shows have evolved greatly. And never once have I thought he was full of himself. (I'm not suggesting anyone has said that). I've noticed some of these other fan sites get pretty nasty and very argumentative. It's only a matter of time before someone like Lou get's picked on or ridiculed. Lou's doing a great service for those of us who don't get down to WDW as often as we'd like. I stand behind everything he does. And I would bet most of these other podcasters have a lot of respect for him.

    Well stated. Lou's show and site have evolved because there's a demand for it. The weekly podcast has only gotten better over time, from Lou's delivery, to the quality of guests. I understand why Lou moved the news to wednesday, the show is dated with news and rumours. Its "evergreen" as Lou says without the news. Plus, theres always us Disney geeks who want more.... More of a good thing. I like Lou's show and appreciate the added elements, such as the live shows, wednesdays news, the interactive sites.

    You certainly have nothing to apologize for. Curiosity always gets the better of us.

    Just take this here thread for example...

    Although as fast as Disney World news gets around these days he almost needs to host a live broadcast as soon as the news breaks instead of waiting a whole week. It's nice to hear his perspective about things but by the time he gets around to it the topics (Avatar comes to mind) have already been completely dissected.
    And you see, I think your post is constructive criticism.

    You are correct. Unless "news" breaks on Wednesday afternoon, the "news" isn't news to most and it has been beat'n to death by the time the news cast airs. The box is just reiterating what has already been spoken during the week. Too me, it is more an outlet for those who genuinely enjoy playing in the box, so it fills that desire.

WDW Weddings is just one aspect of thousands of things that go on in WDW and Lou covered it. Why discredit it as pointless. Im sure a lot of people found it useful, whether it encouraged them to do it, or made them shy away from the idea.

    Again, one of the things I love about WDWRadio is the tremendous bredth of topics, issues and events covered.

    just my two cents...
    This is the beauty of Podcasts. You can either listen or if it doesn't interest you, skip that one.

    Me<----As much as I love all Lou's stuff, my wedding and engagement was a very personal part of my life. A tender moment between me and my then fiance. My wedding was large, but I knew everyone that was witnessing my wedding day. There is no way I would have wanted it to parced as it was happening nor viewed by strangers and susequently, almost like an informercial to sell future Disney Weddings. This is not a judgement of Lou, it was a request, not his idea.

    I read an interview of Lou's wife within the last month. She seems to be able to separate the "Disney" life from the "personal" life. I giggled when she said you will only find subtle Disney in her home, exception Lou's office. I tend to be like that. I'm a Disney Nut but there are times in my life that Disney doesn't play into it. While I could have seen me now having a Disney Wedding, (I honeymooned at Disneyland) it would have to be a private event.

    My two cents.
