Interview with Former Walt Disney Imagineer Darryl Pickett, Trivia Contest 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 #306 for the week of December 23, 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

This week I want to introduce you to person whose name you may not recognize, but whose work you undoubtedly have enjoyed. As a show writer for Walt Disney Imagineering, his work included many of the stories and details in the queue of the Jungle Cruise, Pecos Bill's, One Man's Dream, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Space Mountain, Pop Century, Pal Mickey, the Adventurers Club, the Disney Cruise Line and the Walt Disney World Railroad. I'm excited to share with you my conversation with storyteller Darryl Pickett. We'll discuss his personal journey from dreamer to Cast Member to Imagineer, talk about his wide scope of work, offer guidance to future Imagineers, and much more.

I'll have the answer to our last Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and then have some announcements at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.
