    Another great show. Will definitely be interesting to see what is going on in Missouri. And if the new Contemporary tower is DVC, I think they are being wise not to announce it until AKLV are selling well, though they may get to a point where people won't buy because of all the speculation and they'll have to put it out there.

    Great Show, as always.

    With regards to whether they should bring a Walt AA into the parks, I believe they should. I wrote my ideas here...

    Thumbs up

    Ditto the above comments...another great show. Lou and Jonathan crack me up. It's like listening to Abbott and Costello (sorry if you're too young to remember). And of course, who doesn't like Steve's Hidden Mickey info?

    Thanks to Lou for playing my contrbuted segment. I hope the listeners like it and if you do, please let us know...if you didn't, please do let me know what you didn't like.

    Keep making the shows, Lou, we'll keep listening.

    Another great show!

    Another great job Lou! Each week is better then the next.

    The fact or fiction segment with Jon was the best and Steve Barrett's segment was really interesting.

    As for an AA of Walt himself in the parks, I believe it's a good idea and long as it's done right. I think it would be a good fit in the American Adventure show.

    As always keep up the great work and the babbling!!!

    Jonathan's Intro

    Jonathan's version of "Listen to the Land" was very funny! That was the best one yet !I missed the first few minutes of the show because I was laughing so much. "Listen to Lou..." Where do you come up with this stuff Jon?

    Hey Lou!! Great job on the show this week. VERY entertaining. Jonathan's rendition of "Living with The Land" had me practically singing along and you two together are just a riot! I really enjoyed Tim's segment as well, it's nice to sit back and enjoy WDW sometimes and being an avid Spa goer, it only made me want to head over to the Grand Floridian even more.

    Some questions though -- What song was playing during the Fact or Fiction segment with Jonathan when you were asking him the Enchanted Tiki Room? I know I've heard this music before, but I've never been able to put a name to this track. Also, what was the song being played during the listener question regarding finding Thumper in the parks? Thank you very much in advance, if anyone else knows the answer, please let me know

    The new show is terrific and I hope to see you at the parks sooner then later!

    Lou,

    Another great show. Has it really been 11 shows?? WOW! Time flies....

    Tim, really enjoyed your segment this week. However, my wife was listening with me. Did you have to make it sound sooooo gooood!!!! Thanks a lot!

    Jonathan, another great intro. Way too funny. However...did I hear a challege during the fact or fiction section? Certainly, you don't want this little old piano man to best your score. I mean that wouldn't be fair since I have read both trivia books by Lou.

    Jon,
    A nice job singing the intro, you have a fine voice.

    On a side note, I just went to see the King Tut exhibit in Philadelphia. It was funny when I got home and downloaded the recent show and heard Steve B's segment. At the exhibit, I found myself looking for hidden Mickeys on all the relics. I think I need therapy.

    Ditto as to another great show. I really do learn things from this podcast. Good segment with Steve Barrett. Have you seen the new Official Disneyland Vidcast. They talk about the new Nemo Sub ride out west. The one Imagineer talks about a Water Dragon that was in the old ride. He goes on to say it was removed, but to those that remember it, there will still be a surprise where it was on the attraction. It almost seems like he was hinting at a Hidden Dragon? As for the Hidden Kermit over at Star Tours, I had a great picture of it, but it'll have to wait until I post more here.

    The Fact or Fiction segment was cool also. When can we get a live show out of you? Kinda like the one you did with the WDWToday guys a while back. (ooooh Matt, oooooh Len).

    Thanks for the show.

    Well that wouldn't be a stretch at all if they installed an Egyptian pavillion in Epcot!!

    I quite literally laughed out loud this week, listening to the Fact or Fiction segment. I'm quite sure my fellow drivers were thinking I was having a seisure of some kind, but I don't care. After a long day at work, that was EXACTLY what I needed. Thank you, Jonathan and Lou, for a delightfully funny segment.

    Great show all around this week, but the FoF segment would have made a it a great show all on its own.

    My opinion on the Walt AA.... no. Walt Disney is quite literally a legend, especially to Disney fans (which are obviously the people who'd see him in the parks), and I would be afraid of not being able to do him justice. I don't think a small part in the American Adventure would be appropriate, simply because it wouldn't be enough. To the people living today who still remember seeing Walt on their televisions every week, I think it would be heart-renching to see him brought back in such a small way. The spirit of Walt Disney is all encompassing in the parks and throughout the resort. Embodying him in one small part of one attraciton would feel to me like he was being diminished some how.

    I *guess* the only exception would be something added to the One Man's Dream attraction. Maybe somehow have the final film narrated by the AA, rather than just a voice over? I don't know. It would still feel a little tacky to me. I think many of us feel like we somehow "know" Walt, just by walking through his parks and hearing the stories about him. And I'm not sure I would want to see a representation of someone I "know", any more than I'd want to see an AA of a lost relative.

    There's my 2˘ anyway. . .
