Disney News, Top 10 Things We Love About Tomorrowland, American Idol Experience world premiere recap, new Contest 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 #107 for the week of February 22, 2009.
Iâ€™ll kick off this weekâ€™s show with some news from Walt Disney World, including a new attraction coming to Innoventions, information about ESPN â€“ The Weekend, changes to Disneyâ€™s Magical Express service and a new restaurant opening soon.
Now is the time, now is the best time for another Top 10 segment, and this week, â€œif something can’t be done with X-S, then it shouldn’t be done at all,â€ so Tim Foster and I will take a look at our Top 10 Things We Love About Tomorrowland. So hereâ€™s to the future and you!
Last week marked the official grand opening of the American Idol Experience at Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios, but not before a star-studded world premiere event the night before. I had a chance to visit the blue carpet and meet and speak with many of the celebrities on hand, before viewing the very special show and concert. Glenn Whelan joins me to discuss the event, the attraction and what it means to the parks and its Guests.
Iâ€™ll announce the winner of our last Walt Disney World Trivia Contest, as well as present yet another series of questions to challenge you this week. Get them all right and youâ€™ll have the chance to win a prize package and a bonus prize as well.
Stay tuned to the end of the show for some announcements including the date for our next Meet of the Month in Walt Disney World before I play back some of your voicemails, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
