    WDW Radio Show # 205 - January 16, 2011 - Your Walt Disney World Information Station

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2011 Recap Roundtable

    Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #205 for the week of January 16, 2011.

    This past weekend, more than 54,000 athletes from around the world descended on Walt Disney World, as many do year after year, not for the attractions, shows or dare I say even the wonderful dining options, but to run. And run a lot.


    The Walt Disney World Marathon weekend encompassed a series of endurance events, in which individuals came out to fulfill personal goals, experience the parks like never before, and for many, to make a difference in not just their own lives, but the lives of others. So on this week's roundtable, we'll look at the Walt Disney World Marathon as well as some other endurance events, and possibly introduce you to the idea that it's not just for athletes, but for friends and entire families as well. Whether you visit to run, cheer, volunteer or for your favorite charity, it's one of the most amazing experiences any Disney enthusiast can enjoy.


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

    You can email the show at lou@wdwradio.com or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.

    Anyone know how busy WDW during the Wine & Dine Marathon weekend? I know it is also the first weekend of the Food and Wine Festival so that increases the crowd, but how much does the marathon add? I am planning a trip for the week and was curious of crowd levels etc...any help?

    Kevin,

    I was there last year and it's wasn't that bad. Epcot will be the craziest. If you want to enjoy F&W get to Epcot early before the evening crowds get in.

    Hope to see you there!

    Thanks for the tip Lori...love hearing you on the show too. We won't be doing the marathon part...but we do want to do Food and Wine. Never done it before. I assume Lou will do a meet that weekend for both Food and Wine and the marathone...and of course it is the 40th Anniversary of WDW. It will be nice to finally meet Lou and everyone I hear on and about every week on the podcast.

    Question Re: WDW Radio Show # 205 - January 16, 2011 - Your Walt Disney World Information Stat

    Great show.

    Question, Lou usually has a song he plays in the background at the end of the show (after the WDW Radio theme) when his giving his closing info and sometimes during the voicemails. Anyone know what it is?

    Actually, I've wondered that too.

    Cool Re: WDW Radio Show # 205 - January 16, 2011 - Your Walt Disney World Information Stat

    Yeah we might need to get Lou on here to answer this question, but, he's on the Dream!

    Disney05, I'm glad i'm not the only one that's been wondering.

    Great recap! The marathon was such a wonderful experience. I was glad to meet Lou at the WDW Radio meet tent prior to the race. I would have loved to meet more of the WDW Radio running team there, but I was really nervous at that time.

    I hope to do that again someday.
