WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #69 - June 1, 2008
Welcome to the WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. Thank you for tuning in once again. This is show #69 for the week of June 1, 2008. I am your host Lou Mongello, coming to you this and every week bringing you the very best ways to enjoy and enhance your Walt Disney World vacation experience.
In this week's Walt Disney World News, I'll discuss a new marathon coming to Walt Disney World in 2009, another way to bring some Disney magic to your iPod, and a new set of DVDs coming from Imagineering this Fall.
My visit to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill hints at a new way to purchase Disney theme park items right from home, parade changes coming to the Magic Kingdom, and possible confirmation of the Star Tours rumors.
Speaking of Star Tours, Star Wars Weekends begins on June 6 and runs through the month, so I wanted to discuss the events, the different elements that make up each weekend, and how to get the most out of them, whether you are a Star Wars superfan or not. So I brought in George "Darth Sidious" Taylor and Glenn "Grand Moff Tarkin" Whelan to pull up a chair in the Cantina and join me in a roundtable discussion about the weekends.
Steve Barrett and I trek through Conservation Station and Rafiki's Planet Watch hunting Hidden Mickeys, including the elusive one that can be found on a live animal as well.
I'll answer some more of your emails this week, including questions on Illuminations, the Epcot 25 Exhibit, strollers and more.
Listen for more voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.

Maybe I missed something but wondering where the show notes have been
n. Haven't seen them since show #66.
Not sure what you mean...
Are you referring to the WDWRadio.com web site? As of last Sunday, the site has been updated and the show notes are in new locations, but all accessible from the home page.
If you had subscribed to the site's RSS feed (NOT the iTunes feed), you will have to resubscribe to this one instead:
THIS week's show notes (My bad for not including them here) can be found here:

Hello Lou, and everyone else on these forums. I've long been a fan of the podcast, but have never gotten around to contributing to the forums. I appreciate all that you do for the Disney community, and I'm glad that I have now officially joined your community here on DisneyWorldTrivia.com.
I'm currently listening to show #69, and that I heard you mention something about imagineering DVDs that are coming out soon. Is there any more information that you can give us on these DVDs?
So on the last show notes I posted saying that the show didn't download to my iTunes.. Well it happened again this show.. It did not automatically download like it has in the past.. I had to go to the iTunes store and get this specific episode for it to work..

BTW - tons of great videos available on DisneyEducation.com (Donald in Mathematicsland! School House Rock! Bill Nye the Science Guy!) and a special purchasing section for teachers.

I have a small correction/clarification about your SWW portion of this weeks episode. In a way there were two adult trivia events. You mentioned the event at the millionaire site. That was a hoot with quite a bit of character interaction. This event was held several times a day. There used to be a second "hardcore" trivia contest held in the ABC Theatre -- it was limited to about 36 guests or so. These questions were quite difficult -- I was eliminated in the second round. However, my oldest son won the event. We were quite surprised at the amount of merchandise that he was awarded. I figured that it was about $500 in value. The highlight of that years trip(2005) for sure.

I was listening to this show (as I do most shows) through my car stereo on my way home from work, and when Lou, George and Glen started just pulling random Star Wars quotes out of thin air and "Disney-izing" them, I started laughing so hard I actually had to pull over and catch my breath.
"You do not need to see his Fast Pass. These are not the dorks you're looking for. Move along."

Those quotes were laugh out loud moments for me too.

I like Star Wars, but that is not where my geekdom lies. I'm a big fan of Lord of the Rings and think a ride or LOTR week would be great in Magic Kingdom, specifically fantasy land. Just a thought.
The laugh out load moment for me was when Lou played the Bill Murray SNL clip singing "Star Wars...nothing but Star Wars"
Enjoyed the podcast and the geek factor! The first time I rode Star Tours was at DLR not long after it opened -- I remember thinking I had no idea what I was in for, and during the ride my sister and I kept debating back and forth about whether or not we were actually moving forward! It was the coolest technology I had ever experienced, and having the "real" R2D2 and C3PO right there was awesome.
I was also happy to hear that I might be able to buy park merchandise online. My cousin will also be happy, since she's going to college in SoCal and I'm constantly having her pick up things for me...
Can't wait for next week's fun!
