Travel Channel Ultimate WDW Fan Show
As I'm sure many of you know, the Travel Channel put out a call a few months back for casting of their upcoming "Ultimate Walt Disney World Fan Show". The posts on some other sites asked for a 1 page letter and photos telling them why you should be the ultimate fan.
I sent my letter in late February. Surprisingly, I received a call from the Producer of the show just a few days later, who interviewed me for about 2 1/2 hours. (They later posted an online form with specific questions, and requests for video tapes.)
Well, it's official...
After two months of back and forth phone conversations, video tapes, and anticipation... we finally got the call on Friday night.
We were down to the last few couples, but didn't make it. :( Needless to say, I'm not a happy camper.
My first conversation was almost three hours back in February (before the deadline extensions, online forms and guidelines were even posted). I sent in a tape, as well as information about the book, sample pages, etc. We spoke a few more times, and was asked if we were availble the last week in March to the first week in April. I later found that the dates for couples taping was pushed back, as a final decision hadn't been made as yet.
I spoke with the Producers a number of times, and was told that it was down to just a few couples, out of the few hundred tapes they received.
But in a bad ending to a bad week, the fateful call came on Friday.
Not that any of you would necessarily care if we were on, but I was really hoping to get on and represent (and promote, if possible) the site. C'est la vie, I guess.
Anyway, just thought I'd share the crummy news. But, did anyone else from here make it or know someone that did? If so, (I'm really not bitter), I'd love to hear about the experience, any details as far as air dates, etc.
