WDW Radio Show #109 – Disney Pin Trading – Family Style, News, Listener Emails and more

Disney news, Disney Pin Trading – Family Style, Listener Emails, New Contest and more!

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is show #109 for the week of March 8, 2009. I am your host Lou Mongello, bringing you the very best ways to enjoy and enhance your Walt Disney World vacation experience in a fun, family-friendly weekly show.

We’ll start off this week’s show with news from Walt Disney World, including dates for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, changes coming to Downtown Disney, and opinion questions for you the listener.

I often try and cover topics on the show which are meant to not only inform, educate and entertain you, but really try and help you get the most out of your Walt Disney World vacation, whether you travel alone, as a couple, with friends or family. This week, I am joined by Chuck Lionberger, as we want to explore Disney pin trading, not as the phenomenon that it is but as something you can do with your family, and the experience before, during and even after your trip to Walt Disney Word.

Another way I really enjoy helping with your vacation planning experience is by directly answering your emails, and this week, Beci Mahnken joins me once again to talk about everything from taking babies to the parks, thrill rides that aren’t a literal pain in the neck, the Premium Pass, Disney books, theme park music, and many more topics.

I’ll announce the winner and answers to last week’s Walt Disney World Trivia Contest, and test you with more questions and a different type of bonus challenge as well.

Stay tuned to the end of the show for some more announcements as well as some of your wonderful voicemails, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
