    visitor center

    2 odd questions....

    1 - Does the Disney travel center/visitor center still exist? If so where?

    2 - Is there still a WDW radio station you can listen to in northern FL when driving to the world?
    The happiest place on earth is where my kids are!

    Re: visitor center

    I'm going to say no to both questions, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I believe the visitor center closed down shortly after the park officially opened in '71.

    I remember the radio station as a kid riding down with my parents. I'd start pestering Dad to try and find it as soon as we got to Lake City! There have been some threads on these forums about it and some have even transfered their old "jam box" casette tape recordings of the loop to downloadable files.

    Try this:

    A special treat- Download links to mp3s of "Disney Radio"- complete loops :)

    Hopefully, this gets you there. If not, I'll keep looking.
