Disney World and rumors, Hidden Mickeys, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, contest winner, an announcement, Hidden Treasure, someone who is making magic for others, your emails and so much more!

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show. This is Show #25 for the week of July 29, 2007. Thank you for tuning in once again.

We’ll start off this week as always with a lot News and Views from Walt Disney World, as well as our trip to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill, which includes some rumored details about the Haunted Mansion refurb and upgrade.

Steve Barrett, author of the Hidden Mickeys series of books joins me on what will be a recurring segment on the show, where we talk about some new and interesting Hidden Mickeys, and ask for your help with some questionable ones as well.

It’s time to fire up the old Walt Disney World Wayback Machine once again, and this time Jeff and I visit an opening day extinct attraction that so many of us still miss and have fond memories of, and that is Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

Eric Hollister from GeoMouse.com will announce the winner to this week’s Walt Disney World Half Marathon Challenge, and Eric and Dan from MouseGuest.com join me as we talk about another of Walt Disney World’s Hidden Treasures

Because so much of “Why We Do What We Do” is about helping others, I’ll also introduce you to another friend of the show, Byron Hall, the PhatDisneyGeek, who will tell you about something he is doing to help make some magic for those that really need it.

I’ll also answer more of your emails on the air, and also make an announcement about the show, so sit back, relax and hope you enjoy this week’s episode of The WDW Radio Show.
