Walt Disney World News and Rumors, American Adventure pavilion Disney Scene Investigation, exclusive interviews and more!
Welcome to the WDW Radio Show. This is Show #22 for the week of July 8, 2007. I’m your host Lou Mongello, and I want to thank you for tuning in once again.
This week’s News and Views from Walt Disney World segment starts off with confirmation of a long-standing rumor about Epcot, Animal Kingdom Villas, July 4th ceremonies, concerts, room rates and more. The Walt Disney World Rumor Mill is full of exciting news about Jedis, more character enhancements, new shows and a whole lot more.
In honor of America’s Independence Day, and the recent update to the pavilion, Jeff Pepper and I will conduct a very detailed Disney Scene Investigation of the American Adventure pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. We will cover the history of the pavilion, the show, story, technology backstage and onstage, the recent updates to the show, and the intangible qualities that make it one of the most moving experiences in any of Disney’s theme parks worldwide. This segment will also include exclusive interviews with some of the people that make the pavilion truly exceptional, including a long-time American Adventure Cast Member that shares some of his secrets and details, as well as with the Voices of Liberty, part of the pavilion’s pre-show that is a true wonder in an of itself. Of course, it’s a salute to all nations, but mostly America.
Of course, I have 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.
