WDW Radio Show #50 – 2008 WDW Marathon Recap

WDW Rumor Mill, Marathon Recap and Challenge Contest Winners, your voicemails and more!

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is Show #50 for the week of January 20, 2008. Thank you for tuning in again this week.

With not a lot of Walt Disney World News to report this week, we’ll jump right in to a visit to the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill, where we’ll talk about what’s going on (and up) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, more updates on the rumor of handheld devices in the parks, possible changes going on throughout the resort property-wide and more.

After that, it’s all about the recent Walt Disney World Half Marathon, as I invite Mike Scopa and Bryan Ripper to join me in a roundtable recap of the weekend’s events. It’s a fun look back at an exciting weekend for both runners and spectators alike, and offers some great tips for people who may be considering running next year.

Afterwards, Eric Hollister joins me as we not only announce the winner of the 13th and final mile marker challenge, but the Grand Prize and winner as well. We also look back at what was a fun contest that gave back to the community and touched the lives of many people in a number of different ways.

We’ll have time to play a few of your voicemails, and will answer many more of your emails next week.

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