Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is Show #48 for the week of January 6, 2008. Thank you for tuning in once again, and I want to wish you all a very happy new year.

We’re going to start off 2008 just as we did in 2007, with Walt Disney World news, and a wild visit to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill. In addition to talking about some updated rumors, I’m going to take this opportunity to kick off the New Year with some of the very wild rumors I’ve been hearing about. Will they all come true? Probably not. But it will be fun to talk about them and speculate as to what the future may hold.

In my continuing effort to introduce you to not only some of WDW’s hidden treasures, history, trivia, reviews and vacation planning advice, I also want to open your eyes to some of its overlooked experiences. This week, I have something special for you, as my special guest, Dr. Anne Savage from Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Wildlife Tracking Center joins me to talk about the amazing work that is taking place onstage and backstage, and how you can get involved at the park and when you get home. It’s a fascinating look at the amazing conservation and research efforts that Disney undertakes each and every day.

I will also answer a number of your emails in our Listener Feedback section this week, and play some of your voicemails at the end of the show.

So as always, sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

You’ve probably heard people talk about conservation. Well, conservation isn’t just the business of a few people. It’s a matter that concerns all of us. It’s a science whose principles are written in the oldest code in the world, the laws of nature. The natural resources of our vast continent are not inexhaustible. But if we will use our riches wisely, if we will protect our wildlife and preserve our lakes and streams, these things will last us for generations to come. – Walt Disney
