    WDW Radio Show #53 - Feb. 10, 2008

    Welcome to the WDW Radio Show - your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is Show #53 for the week of February 10, 2008. I’m your host Lou Mongello, and I want to thank you for tuning in again this week we celebrate the one-year anniversary of the WDW Radio Show. Although I’ve been podcasting since 2005, this past week marked the first anniversary of this show, and I want to take a moment to thank all of you for your support and for listening over the past year. It’s been an incredible, amazing journey, and I believe that things will only continue to get bigger and better.

    In fact, I have to tell you that I am more excited about this week’s show than I may have ever been, in large part due to my very special guest.

    Joining me this week in an exclusive interview is Samantha Brown, host of a number of popular series on the Travel Channel, including a number of specials all about Walt Disney World. She has explored some of the finest resorts on property, as well as the incredible experiences that Guests can enjoy during one of the most magical of seasons. My conversation with Samantha will talk about her work on the Disney park and resorts specials, including the most recent Holidays at Walt Disney World, and she reveals what’s next for her and the Travel Channel as she continues to entertain us with her travels to and exploration of the Disney resorts. Being a long time fan of her work, this interview was not only fun and exciting to do, but one that I think you’re really going to enjoy.

    In this week’s Walt Disney World News, we’ll cover some of the latest news, including announcing the Star Wars weekend dates for 2008, and I reveal the new live, interactive and high-energy attraction that’s coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Let’s just say that if you ever wanted to be a star and were looking for your big break, here’s your chance!

    The Walt Disney World Rumor Mill for this week has a number of big stories, including an Epcot pavilion possibly losing a sponsor, a rumored new attraction based on a Disney film that just might surprise you, and a very big, semi-confirmed rumor about not just demolition, but more importantly new construction at one of Walt Disney World’s resorts. This one could be big, so stay tuned. With the recent re-opening of the attraction,

    I’ll also have a full review of the updated Playhouse Disney – Live on Stage show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, courtesy of a listener.

    Speaking of new things coming to Walt Disney World, I’ll also speak with another listener who gives a first-hand, detailed review of Disney’s Magical Connection, the handheld device currently being tested in the Magic Kingdom. You can learn not only about what the device does and how it works, but hear from a Guest just what they think of the device and technology.

    And as part of this anniversary show, I will also announce the new project I’ve been working on and alluding to for some time now. It’s going to be released soon, and I wanted to give you the first glimpse at what I have planned. It’s something I’m really excited about, and hope that you’ll enjoy.

    I won't have time for your emails this week, but as always, stay tuned for the end of the show, where I play a number of your voicemails. So sit back, relax and 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.

    Happy Anniversary!!!

    I checked out the show notes but can't listen until tomorrow on my drive to Galena

    I already know from looking at the show notes that I've gotta have at least a dozen of those calendars, one for my office at work, once for my office at home...the rest as gifts for fellow Disney geeks.

    Lou, thanx again for all you do each and every week!!!

    Great show so far Lou. I just wanted to note that you can buy that foamy covering for a Nintendo DS and it is made by Nerf! "Santa" brought my daughter a Nerf Armor covering for her DS this Christmas. It's really awesome protection for those days when the game gets intense and butter fingers sets in. I hope I can check out one of those DS units at WDW this summer!

    First, Happy Anniversary WDW Radio! It's been a year filled with great pod casts and terriffic interviews.

    I haven't listened to this weekend show yet, but I looked at the show notes. I'm going to have to have that calendar.

    I didn't see the "i'm going to Disney World" clip till I saw the show notes. Funny part is, he was supposed to go to Disneyland, and then some type of problem with the flight prevented Manning from even going at all.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
