Never apologize for a long show, Lou. The longer the better! I absolutely look forward to your first five hour podcast. :-)

Thanks so much to you, Jeff and the rest of your guests for making those of us who could not be there feel apart of this historic day.
Please take care of yourself and get your health back. That's the most important thing.
I have to confess, I listened to your show from time to time. I've never been a regular. I hadn't even registered on this site but after meeting you and speaking to you on the 1st, I am now a fan.
Thank you so much for the show about the anniversary. You and Jeff did a great job in capturing the true feeling of the day. I was one of the guys that you were describing that were in tears during the re-dedication ceremony during the water dedication. Teary eyed during the music montage at Marty Sklar's session. Goosebumps as I approached the park at 7am and heard the music. Amazed by the passion of Jim McPhee.
It was a truly amazing day that I will never forget. I agree with everything you said. Illuminations was breathtaking even though I have seen it hundreds of times before. It was like seeing it for the first time again. You could feel the love and harmony in the crowd.
And you hit on the head when you said nothing like this can ever be done again. It wont be the same with any other park. It is the feeling of community that you feel with Epcot that you feel with nothing else.
I made friends that day that I will cherish for a lifetime.
Thank you so much for a great show and I look forward to seeing you next time you visit the world. Look me up, I'm only 20 minutes away!
Holy Cow Lou!

The longer the better! I loved the show. I'm always left longing for the next show when its over. This time the sad ending was prolonged. Once again, GREAT SHOW!
Forgive me if I've missed this elsewhere, but . . . near the end of the cast, did Adam say "Soarin' Over Florida" was coming??
Have you seen my dad? Would you page him for me?
Next Family trip = April 16 - April 23, 2011, staying in an All Star Vacation Home!
Lets' face it: it was an event worthy of a 2 hour + podcast. Nice job. Never was I listening to "filler"! Lou, I hope you got the email I sent yesterday with some photos I thought you'd appreciate. If not, let me know, and I'll send them to a more appropriate account.

Did anyone else notice that during one of Lou's interviews, you could just make out the seaguls at The Seas squawking "MINE MINE!!"? Hahha. I laughed out loud when I realized what that was. :-)
Finally finished listening to the show today, Lou. Amazing. The way you described the events and proceedings, and the interviews were just outstanding. I would like to state here and now for the record that, come heck or high water, I *will* be in attendance at Epcot's 50th Anniversary. October 1, 2032. Be ready for it. :-)
Lou, I think you did a great job covering the 25th. Our family vacation happened to coincide with the anniversary celebration and attending the rededication ceremony was by far the highlight of our trip! I relived it all when I came home to your wonderful recap of the event. We proudly wore our lanyards all day, but the dear children and ADRs were not conducive to the ride meets...but we hope to meet you after the 1/2 in Jan!
One thing that I wanted to note regarding the celebration. I am not sure if you noticed this as well, but I was AMAZED at how many "plain clothes" cast members we saw during the ceremony at epcot. I noticed many faces that we had met as ride operators at the parks on prior days or as waitstaff at a previous meal or performers in shows...this was the biggest testament to me regarding how much pride and respect the cast members have in the "world".
