    WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #88 - Oct. 12, 2008




    Hello everybody and welcome once again to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello and this is show #88 for the week of October 12, 2008.

    We’re going to start off this week with our tribute to the Adventurer’s Club. And rather than just a look at what it was, its rooms and shows, we’re going to explore the Club like never before, because if you think you knew everything there was to know about the Adventurer’s Club, you might be a bit surprised. Joining me this week is world-renowned Disney historian and author Jim Korkis, who is going to share his exhaustive research into the history and details of the Club, and the stories behind the stories. We’ll go way back and examine it from the very beginning, from concept, to drawing board changes, its creators, design and so much more.

    Moving from one party to another, we’ll next head on over to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, as George Taylor and I tell you all about this special event, what you can do while you’re there, tips to get the most out of the party, and why we think this is one of Walt Disney World’s best events.

    I’ll play more of your voicemails at the end of the show after some a few announcements, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    Thanks for another great show, Lou! I enjoyed hearing Jim Korkis share his stories about Adventurers Club. Guess only time will tell if AC returns to adoring fans.

    Thanks so much for the MNSSHP segment. That was a lot of fun and I'm hoping to attend MNSSHP in 2009 or 2010.

    Have a good and safe journey to The World this week. I'm looking forward to playing more rounds of Where in the World is Lou if you post clues when I'm not at the office.

    Thanks again!

    I'm so glad I went on the tour of Pleasure Island so I had a heads-up on some of the history discussed. Great program.

    This ep was just wonderful! I tremendously enjoyed all the 'insights' into the creation of the AC. I can't help but wonder what will become of all the artifacts that adorned the walls. Hopefully WDW management will preserve them somehow/somewhere in hopes that an AC V2 might come about .....

    Oh, and Jim Korkis confirmed for me what I've long suspected - that the character Hathaway Browne was named after a girls school near Cleveland. The funny part is that my sister-in-law attended that school, back in the early 80's!

    I'll tell you one thing, I have to get some candy for George. I work for one of the large candy companies and getting him eating our product could give us a nice spike in sales..

    I think we should start calling him the "Candyman".

    Okay, just listened to the podcast. I'm surprised you guys didn't mention the fact that you can get into the MK with a MNSSHP ticket starting at 4pm!

    On a trip last year, I arrived at MCO around noon. Went to the hotel, checked in, met some friends, and then went straight to the MK. They let me in at 4pm and I didn't have to use a day on my parkhopper ticket. The MNSSHP events didn't start until 7, but I got in a bunch of rides (especially ones that weren't going to be open during the party) and had dinner.

    A great option for either your first day there or a relaxing day at the resort.

    Great show Lou....both interviews were great to listen to.

    Lou...you really need to check out Plurk. It's much easier to follow a conversation because they're threaded on Plurk instead of how Twitter handles them.

    We got into the Magic Kingdom at 4:00 for the MNNSHP and it was great! We rode quite a few rides before the party officially started. And they had to chase us out at midnight! We didn't want it to end. What a fun event, I love it! I am still enjoying my candy and it was 2 weeks ago!

    Hey, Lou. FANTASTIC show this week. Jim Korkis is awesome. What a wealth of information.

    And thanks for the quick mention of our Hitchhiking Ghosts costumes. I wish we were CMs and could be there in our costumes for every party! Well, we had our visit to MNSSHP about 2 weeks ago on Tuesday September 23rd. I'll post pictures once I make a few more posts and get my post count up to where I can post picture links.
