WDW Radio Show #21 – The Seven Wonders of Walt Disney World (Continued), Magic Meet Charity Auction, Hidden Treasure and More

WDW News, Rumors, New Contest, 7 Wonders of WDW, Contest winner, MagicMeets Charity Auction, Hidden Treasure, emails, voicemails and more.

Welcome to Show #21 of the WDW Radio Show for the week of July 1, 2007, and thanks for tuning in once again. I’m your host Lou Mongello, and I have a lot of fun segments planned for you this week.

My visit to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill includes discussion and audio evidencing some possible big changes and improvements to the resort and ADR reservation systems, plenty of rumors from the Disney-MGM Studios, an abandoned venue, as well as a possible new addition to Cinderella Castle, and the Canada pavilion in World Showcase.

Eric Hollister and I introduce the first of our Walt Disney World Marathon Contest challenges, and I announce the winner of our first “Where in the World Have You Seen This?” Contest.

I announce the next in our 7 Wonders of Walt Disney World series – the Walt Disney World monorail, and discuss with Jeff Pepper its origins, technology, fun facts and intangible qualities that make it a true wonder.

Fred Block’s Magic Meet event is coming up soon, and once again he was kind enough to allow us to hold our DisneyWorldTrivia.com Dream Team Project charity auction to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation of America. Pat Whitson joins me to talk about the auction, some of the amazing items and experiences which are included, as well as how the generosity of so many Disney fans will once again help make a seriously-ill child’s wish come true to visit Walt Disney World.

Gary Chambers joins me for another Hidden Treasure of Walt Disney World, this time in Epcot.

This week’s email segment talks about handheld technology in the parks, July 4 fireworks in WDW, Adventureland then and now, Seasonal vs. Annual passes and so much more.

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.
