WDW Radio Show #56 – Magic Meets

Lots of WDW News and exciting topics in the WDW Rumor Mill, MagicMeets founder Fred Block reveals details

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is show #56 for the week of March 2, 2008. As always, I am your host Lou Mongello, and I want to thank you for tuning in again this week.

I just returned from Walt Disney World, and in addition to getting some work done for the next CD and new features I’m going to be adding to the site, I also came back with some great information for both the Walt Disney World News section, as well as the Rumor Mill. In fact, there is SO much to cover this week that I invite Jeff Pepper to come in and discuss with me the variety of topics this week.

In the News, we’ll talk about some changes coming to Extra Magic Hours, The Kingdom Tower, how to enjoy the resorts right at home, a new meet and greet, an exclusive look at the new Disney Parks television specials coming to the Travel Channel, and more.

The Rumor Mill is full this week, as we talk about some big changes coming to the Magic Kingdom turnstiles and FASTPASS systems, is Illuminations really leaving, and a super-sneak peek at new Star Wars Weekends merchandise. We’ll also talk about Star Tours 2 point NO?, Indiana Jones at the Studios, and so so much more.

Celebrating its 5th anniversary, MagicMeets is returning this summer for another fan gathering in Camp Hill, PA. Founder Fred Block joins me to discuss the event, some of the featured speakers, and how you can be a part of it.

We have a lot to cover this week, so sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
