Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #223 for the week of May 22, 2011.
From May 12-15, 2011, Disneyâ€™s D23, the official community for Disney fans, held a four day event in Walt Disney World that included a 4 park Scavenger Hunt, as well as two days of speakers, presentations, and many surprises. Known as Destination D â€“ The Florida Project, it celebrated Walt Disney Worldâ€™s 40th anniversary and weâ€™ll review the hunt and event on this weekâ€™s roundtable.
Iâ€™ll also tell you about the brand new Walt Disney World Trivia iPhone app and more before playing some of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!
