    Almost like being there

    Last week, I purchased the first three audio guides as digital download (Main Street, Adventureland, and Fantasyland). I've just completed listening to the last of them. I have to say what many have probably said before...

    Lou, you've captured the parks in a way that is unmatched. From the intricate detail of what you're 'seeing' and the history behind it, to the crowd and background sounds that are ever present, its as if a friend is guiding me through the park.

    My first trip to WDW was in the mid-1970's as a 6 year old, and I did not return until this past summer when my wife and I brought our sons, ages 6 and 7. I knew immediately we had to come back as often as possible and will be coming back in September.

    The time between trips will be filled with your podcasts, audio guides, and my soon to be arriving Celebrations magazines. Thanks to your work, I don't have to be too far from Disney World when I'm not on property.

    Thank you, and I'm looking forward to purchasing the remaining guides and listening to them for the first time as well. I appreciate you taking your passion and sharing it with the rest of us.

    The Adventureland one was a particular favourite of mine

    The Fantasyland is a keeper with a "look back".

    Re: Almost like being there

    Hey, I liked your comments. Like you, I went when I was about 7 but never returned until I was older, and my wife and I went for our honeymoon in 1996. Since then we have taken our kids in 2002, and again in 2009. We would SO love to go more often, but WDW the podcast, blog, forums, etc. help give me my daily fix during the long spells between visits. I am ALMOST caught up on listening to the podcast from episode 1 through to the most recent one and I didn't know what I would do to pass the time between each new episode, but your comment on the audio guides just convinced me to get them, where I had planned on waiting until our next trip down to get them. Thanks.

    Fantasyland was my favorite. I appreciate all the work that went into them to create an enhanced experience in the theme park. One of the things I love the most about Disney is the detail and the audio guides are a fantastic way to embrace that. Thanks!
