Disney’s Animal Kingdom 10th anniversary recap, Joe Rohde, Jane Goodall, Val Bunting and Jackie Ogden interviews, rededication ceremony, listener emails and more!
JAMBO and Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host Lou Mongello, and I want to thank you for tuning in again this week. This is show #64 for the week of April 27, 2008.
I spent a number of days last week in Walt Disney World covering Disney’ss Animal Kingdom’s 10th Anniversary, and as promised, I brought back some wonderful audio from the event. In addition to a live recording of the opening rededication ceremonies, I was able to get one on one interviews with Val Bunting, Vice President of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Jackie Ogden, vice president of animal programs and environmental initiatives, world-renowned primatologist Jane Goodall, and legendary Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde.
I’ll also discuss the day’s event, the Wild Decade fan gathering, and a look back at the park, its mission and message with fellow attendees Eric Hollister and Glenn Whelan. I’ll also play audio from the presentation of the WDW Celebrations donation to the DisneyWorldTrivia.com Dream Team Project.
I invite Jeff Pepper back to answer some more of your listener emails, and I’ll play more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax and enjoy this weekÃ¯Â¿Â½s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
