    WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #131 - August 9, 2009

    Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #131 for the week of August 9, 2009. Thank you for tuning in once again.


    While the introduction of new attractions, shows or promotions gets many people excited about Walt Disney World, hearing about a new dining experience for many is equally as thrilling. And when a new restaurant is being introduced that comes from the first and only female Iron Chef, the excitement grows into anticipation. This week, I am pleased to be joined by Chef Cat Cora, whose Kouzzina restaurant is set to open soon on Disney's Boardwalk. We'll talk about her background and career, as well as what this new dining experience will bring to Walt Disney World Guests.


    With the recent introduction of new Disney Vacation Club properties at Kidani Village, The Treehouses at Saratoga Springs and the spectacular new Bay Lake Towers, I wanted to talk about not just the DVC in general, but about each of these new resorts. With three new, very unique experiences to offer Guests and DVC Members, I also wanted to look at some frequently asked questions about the DVC and how these new properties may or may not affect buying and selling DVC points. Shontell Crawford form DVCbyResale.com joins me to discuss these topics and more.


    I'll play more of your voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

    Really interesting show this week, Lou! Your conversation with Chef Cat Cora on her new Kouzzina restaurant was very interesting to hear. Sounds like it's going to be a great fit within the Boardwalk area. I'll be looking forward to trying it out sometime. Your conversation with Shontell Crawford on the new DVC properties and really the basics of how DVC works was also very interesting. I am not a DVC member, but I've delved a little interest into it. This provided much more insight into the process and how it works. As always, great job and keep up the great work!
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!

    So enjoyed your interview with my favorite iron chef, Cat Cora! We are looking forward to several visits to Kouzzina in December! Lou, I didn't hear it on the interview, but wondering if she will utilize the pizza takeout window for perhaps a Greek/Mediterranean twist on pizza?

    Nice to hear Shontell Crawford, we have subscribed to her email postings for some time and I love to browse through the listings, they really have fantastic deals on DVC. I have just about convinced my dh that DVC is the way to go and having the opportunity to hear Shontell himself really helped my cause!

    Thanks so much for the consistently wonderful podcast, the terrific audio guides (can't wait to have the whole series, including the Epcot, DHS, and AK), the wonderful books and Celebrations, which we have loved since the first issue!

    Thanks for all the pixie dust, take care!

    Great Chef Cat Cora interview Lou, I could almost hear you salivating while talking about the food!
    The information about the DVC by resale was great also!

    Thank You and Keep up the great work!

    Good job spotlighting DVC By Resale. Buying these things used is the best way to go. Did Shontell Crawford give examples on how much money people could save versus buying new through Disney?
