WDW Radio Show #98 – MouseFest 2008, American Idol Experience Interview, and more

MouseFest 2008 Recap; American Idol Experience Sneak Peek interview, New Holiday Contest, special offers, and more!

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello and this is show #98 for the week of December 21, 2008.

With a quiet week in Walt Disney World News, we’re going to jump right in and take look back at this year’s MouseFest event that too place last week in Walt Disney World. Enthusiasts from around the world and from dozens of online communities gathered to celebrate and share their love of Disney through friendships new and old. Back with me to discuss the events and what MouseFest really means is Glenn Whelan and Greg Grimsby, as we recap the events day by day, and how each of us spent and enjoyed what we all agree was a wonderful few days in Disney.

As 2009 approaches, Disney fans have a lot to look forward to, with many new experiences coming to Walt Disney World. One of them is the American Idol Experience, an interactive show and competition like no other, with a new level of excitement coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney Parks spokesperson Gary Buchanan joins me to get a sneak peek as to what’s to come for participants, Guests and audience members who will be offered a level of participation in the show like never before.

In the spirit of the season, I’ll have another fun, holiday-themed trivia contest for you, where you can play to win a prize package.

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