    WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #35 - Oct. 7, 2007 - Epcot 25 Recap!

    Welcome to the WDW Radio Show, your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is Show #35 for the week of October 7, 2007.

    I am back from WDW and what undoubtedly one of my most memorable experiences ever at the resort. The celebration of Epcot’s 25th Anniversary was even better than expected and this week, I'm going to share some of those experiences with you through a recap with Jeff Pepper, as well as through some exclusive, private interviews. Some of my very special guests include Disney Legends Marty Sklar, Dave Smith and Charles Ridgway, as well as Epcot’s Vice President Jim MacPhee, and Michael and Lowell, two of Disney’s official Ambassadors. Other guests will include a former Disney Imagineer who helped build EPCOT Center; Adam Roth and the other co-founders of the Celebration 25 fan event, Deb Wills, and a number of other authors, podcasters and fans who felt it was important to be present on this historic day. Each share their own personal insights and stories about working to help create Epcot, why it is important to them, as well as to so many of the people that felt they needed to be there to celebrate this event.

    I will also cover some recent Walt Disney World News and visit the WDW Rumor Mill, as there are some interesting developments to speak about.

    Due to the length of the show, I will unfortunately have to hold off on your emails and voicemails until next week. I know I have so many more to get to, and I promise to address them all on the show as quickly as possible. So sit back, relax enjoy this week’s episode of The WDW Radio Show.

    Be sure to view this week's complete show notes page.

    You can email the show at lou@wdwradio.com or call the voicemail at 206-202-4WDW. Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week to the WDW Radio Show Disney podcast!

    Yes, Jeff and I really took time trying to convey what the day and events meant as a whole, and then there are some interviews and audio clips from some of the special guests and Disney Legends on hand, as well as fans, authors, podcasters and so many more Guests that found it important to be there.

    OK, I'll admit it - I'm still so excited that I had the opportunity to sit with Marty Sklar and chat with him for a bit and get a brief interview for the show...

    And I know this one is long, but i can't tell you how much I had to edit down and remove! So much going on and SO many wonderful people who were there!

    And I guess I should apologize for how I sound on the show this week. I am fighting some minor health issues which are not only making me cough like crazy (tried to edit those out best I could), but some of my breathing issues make me sound... well.. not like myself, so for that I apologize.

    Okay, Lou 2:20! Holy cats that's a record!! I can't wait to dive in! It's only taking me 10 minutes to download this puppy!

    You know your buddies over there at WDW Today are going to be having a field day with that! Hey, maybe it's time to slow down a wee bit and relax. You've been go go go for a while now. You know what, I think you need a cruise to a nice sunny destination...

    Thanks for all the hard work and I'm so glad you had the chance to sit down with so many notable people at Celebration 25.

    Can't wait to listen in!

    Lou really knows how to make me NUTS with these rumors!. In the rumor segment he talks about all the amazing changes coming to WDW and how the next several years will be an amazing time for WDW. He then says he will wait to explain them all in more specificity in a later show!

    I'm chomping at the bit here. Lou, I will listen to your show, you don't need to throw out the teasers like that. The waiting is horrible!! It makes the whole Who Shot JR thing pale in comparison!

    What changes, how cool is it going to be, what is it going to be???!!!

    I am now ---->

    Even when preparations were in order for the re-dedication, I was wishing that I could attend. Hearing the report, listening to the download and then checking out You tube for video (were are there) has really made me feel as though I've missed a great event. Thanks for bringing the excitement and memories to those of us who couldn't attend.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Lou, you are like the 10 person that I have heard of coming back from C25 sick. Both my wife and youngest daughter were taken out for a couple of days with similar symptoms. Well I guess that is what happens when 1200 people from 30+ states and 6 countries all get together in one place.

    This was hands down your best show yet and it was a pleasure meeting you.
    The truth about WDW…..From a certain point of view.
