WDW Radio Show #77 – Magic Meets Recap

WDW News and Rumors, MagicMeets Recap Roundtable

Welcome to the WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. As always, I am your host Lou Mongello, and this is show #77 for the week of July 27, 2008.

We’ll start off with some Walt Disney World News and Rumors this week, including changes across the resort to the reservations system, resorts, restaurants, hauntings and holidays. We’ll also look at some possible new Disney destinations, high-tech touring, and much more.

I talk about trying to bring you a little bit of Disney Magic to you each week, but last week, Disney Magic went to Camp Hill, PA in the form of MagicMeets, a yearly gathering of Disney fans from around the nation. Now celebrating its 5th year, I thought it would be fun to recap the weekend’s events not just for those listeners that attended, but for those of you that may not know what MagicMeets is, and maybe in the process, help show you why you might want to mark next year’s event on your calendar. I am joined by the event’s founder, Fred Block, as well as Pat Whitson (Dream Team Auction coordinator), guest and videographer Jamie Curci, and listener and attendee Dave Recchione, in a fun look at the event, and some of the real magic that was created thanks to the incredible efforts and generosity of so many people, and how the community’s efforts will go a long way towards helping children that need the magic most.

I’ll have a few brief announcements and play more of your voicemails at the end of this week’s show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
