Mickey Mouse in Walt Disney World: History, Attractions, Appearances and the Future; and Disney Trivia Contest – September 8, 2013
Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #335 for the week of September 8, 2013.
This week we’ll celebrate Mickey Mouse’s upcoming 85th birthday, and discuss how November 18th became his official birthday. We’ll also look at the history of Mickey in the parks, dating back to Disneyland, and then explore and seek out Mickey Mouse in Walt Disney World. From extinct attractions and character appearances to where Mickey can be found in the parks today, we’ll also discuss the future of Mickey in the Disney parks, and ask you to play armchair Imagineer and design your own Mickey Mouse attraction.
I’ll have the answer to our last Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new challenge for your chance to win a Disney prize package.
Stay tuned as I’ll have some updates and announcements, including details about our WDW Radio E-Ticket Weekend Food & Wine Festival Quest and 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.
Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!
– Lou Mongello
