WDW Radio Show #130 – EPCOT Center Retrospective Series – World of Motion, News and Rumors

Disney news and rumor mill, EPCOT Center Retrospective Series – World of Motion, Contest winner 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 #130 for the week of August 2, 2009. Thank you for tuning in once again.

We’ll start off with some news from Walt Disney World, including the Company’s recent financial reports and how they may affect you in the future, and testing a new way to get your FASTPASSes. We’ll also visit the Walt Disney World Rumor Mill and look at a few quick items, including some possible new shows coming to the parks.

In the next installment of my EPCOT Center Retrospective series, we’ll journey aboard my Walt Disney World Wayback Machine to 1982 and take a look at the history and future of transportation as we take a ride on the wonderful World of Motion.

I’ll announce the winner of our “Name That Disney World Tune” contest, and then play 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.

You can email the show at lou@wdwradio.com or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

From Glenn (Passamaquoddy)Whelan – The Pretty Good Movie Ride

In addition to painstaking recreations of ALL incarnations of the Great Movie Ride finale (scene by scene, frame by frame, from the DVDs), he also created the Pretty Good Movie Ride montage! Following the exact same layout and format as the original finale montage, Glenn does an AMAZING job of putting together “his own” version with classic clips from some “pretty good” movies!

This is a MUST SEE (more than once!) so check it out (and share the link!) Bravo, Glenn!! Impressive… MOST impressive!!!
