WDW Radio Show #146 – Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson interview, Thanksgiving in Walt Disney World

Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson interview; Thanksgiving in Walt Disney World

Disney enthusiasts who enjoy the parks and films often look for other ways to continue the experiences as much and as often as possible. They look for ways to continue the stories beyond what they have already seen or heard. In some cases, they are fortunate enough to have the Characters and story lines go beyond the confines of the original, as in the case with what my guests this week have created. They are Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, bestselling authors of the Peter and the Starcatchers series of books, which recount the tales of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and Captain Hook in the days before the original novel and Disney animated film. I had a chance to sit down with them in Walt Disney World and get a close look inside the collaborative efforts these two creative talents brought together to chronicle the adventures of Peter Pan before he lost his shadow.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted look at how and why you and your family might want to think about spending this traditional holiday in possibly an non-traditional place – Walt Disney World. We’ll look at where you can spend your Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends, places to stay, and why now is a great time to visit the resort.

I’ll 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.
