WDW Radio Show #68 – Star Tours DSI: Disney Scene Investigation

Walt Disney World News and Rumor Mill, Star Tours DSI: Disney Scene Investigation, Walt Disney World Ambassador TC Newman, Listener Emails

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – your Walt Disney World Information Station. Thank you for tuning in once again. I am Lou Mongello, coming to you this and every week bringing you the very best ways to enjoy and enhance your Walt Disney World vacation experience. This is show #68 for the week of May 25, 2008.

News from Walt Disney World includes some Prince Caspian sightings, a new restaurant opening at one of Disney’s Resorts, as well as a welcome new addition to another restaurant, and changes coming to the Wide World of Sports.

In the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill, I’ll have an update to the Space Mountain rumors, a sponsor that may be moving out, and no longer Living with the Land, and a few hints at some other new rumors as well.

With Star Wars Weekends rapidly approaching, and some rumors about this attraction resurfacing once again, there is no better time for Jeff and I to don our Jedi robes and do a DSI: Disney Scene Investigation of Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We’ll explore the history of the attraction, the story behind it, a exceptionally geeky look at the queue, the shop and what the future may hold. You don’t need to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy the attraction or this segment… but it might just make them a little more fun.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet and chat with TC Newman, one of the two Walt Disney World Ambassadors about her role, what a day in her life is like, her duties and responsibilities, and so much more. It’s a look into one of the most highly-coveted roles in the grand Walt Disney World cast.

I’ll answer some more of your emails, play some voicemails, and tell you about some changes to the web site, as well as new free downloads you might enjoy. So sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
