WDW Radio Show # 305 - December 16, 2012 - Your Walt Disney World Information Station
Song of the South and Splash Mountain, Trivia Contest, New Free WDW Radio App and more!
Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #305 for the week of December 16, 2012.
I'm here to help you have the best possible Disney vacation experience, and bring you some Disney magic to to wherever you are with this podcast, videos, blog, live broadcasts, events, trivia books, CDs and more. You can find it all at WDWRadio.com
This week we're going to connect the dots and talk about one of Walt Disney World's most popular attractions, the story that serves as the inspiration for it, and look at its history, significance, and controversy. Jim Korkis joins me as we discuss Disney's 1946 animated and live action film Song of the South and its connection to Splash Mountain. We'll talk about the attraction and the film, including it's connection to Walt, its production, the debate, its future, and Jim's new book, "Who's Afraid of Song of the South." It's a fascinating look at a film that many people have not seen, yet features characters and songs that delight people in the Disney parks so many years after its initial release.
I'll have the answer to our last Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new challenge for your chance to win a Disney prize package.
I'll then have some announcements at the end of the show, including information about the new, free WDW Radio app for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows mobile devices! So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.

Thanks for this show! Our family loves Splash mountain but I love it for the story. This was a favorite story of mine growing up. I llove the characters. But i admit i never saw the film, it was an album i hadthat told Uncle Remus ' s stories. Brer rabbit and brer fox remind me of my childhood! The history of the story was great to listen to! Thanks again!
