WDW Radio # 492 - Disney’s Haunted Mansion: History, Secrets and Stories  

WDW Radio # 492 - Disney’s Haunted Mansion: History, Secrets and Stories

The story of how Walt Disney’s first idea for a haunted house in Disneyland came to become the legendary Haunted Mansion is a long, circuitous one, and reads like a Hollywood movie. It’s filled with mystery, suspense, a cast of interesting (and often conflicting) characters, laughter, a little bit of magic, and a payoff at the end that still entertains and thrills guests decades later. This week, to celebrate the anniversary of one of Disney’s most legendary and time-tested attractions, we’re going to go back to the very beginnings of how the concept of the attraction came to be, its many stages, stories, players, secrets, troubles, and how it eventually became the Haunted Mansions we know and love.

WDW Radio # 491 - Top Ten Things to Collect in Walt Disney World  

WDW Radio # 491 - Top Ten Things to Collect in Walt Disney World

Part of the fun of visiting Walt Disney World is bringing back a souvenir (or souvenirs) from our trip. And over times, sometimes these single souvenirs evolve into something we begin to collect. This week, we’ll look at our Top Ten Things to Collect in Walt Disney World. From the free to the sentimental, they help us remember our trips, memorialize special events, and, in many cases, add to our (growing) collection. And whether you consider yourself a collector or not, chances are there is one (or more) things on our list that you can (or already do) like to collect when you go to Walt Disney World.

WDW Radio # 490 - 10 Takeaways from D23 Expo 2017

This year’s D23 Expo was not just the largest to date, but was one that was full of surprises and announcements from many divisions in the Disney Company, including Parks and Resorts, live action films, animation, television, and more. So this week, we’ll look back at the event and discuss 10 Takeaways from D23 Expo 2017. From the show floor to the panels and presentations, and everything in between, we’ll not only review what was announced, but the Expo in general, and also speculate at what the future may hold with some predictions about what may be coming to the parks. We’ll also discuss our inaugural Disneyland Quest scavenger hunt through the park, and reveal what’s coming next!

WDW Radio # 486 - Morimoto Asia LIVE Review

Disney Springs has evolved into a true destination in Walt Disney World, especially for locals and frequent visitors. The shopping and live entertainment put the finishing touches on what I believe are some of the best dining experiences in Walt Disney World. One of my personal favorites is (and has been) Moritomo Asia. So this week, I would like to invite you to dinner with me and some friends for a live review for a restaurant that I believes offers much more than what you might expect.

WDW Radio # 482 - Geyser Point LIVE Review at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

As part of the Copper Creek expansion to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, the new Geyser Point Bar and Grill opened along the shores of Bay Lake. This beautiful, open-air lounge welcomes adults and families in for a relaxing bite amidst the cedar beams, natural stone, and the resort’s overall rustic beauty. This week, we sample… well.. all of the menu (and then some), as well as some of the unique, artisanal beverages. So pull up a chair with us around the table, grab a fork (quickly, because we eat fast), and a drink, and find out what we think about the decor, drinks, and dinner, and share YOUR thoughts with us as well.

WDW Radio # 481 - Beastly Kingdom - The Walt Disney World That Never Was  

WDW Radio # 481 - Beastly Kingdom - The Walt Disney World That Never Was

Long before anyone ever dreamed of Pandora: The World of Avatar, or even Camp Minnie-Mickey at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, original plans for Walt Disney World’s fourth theme park included an exciting, radical, new concept. This kingdom of animals was going to include not only those that were real, but once that were ancient and imagined... a kingdom to be ruled by lions, dinosaurs and dragons. This week, we will turn back the clock on our Wayback Machine and explore the land that never came to be - Beastly Kingdom. We discuss how and why this land of mythical beasts got on the drawing board, virtually tour the attractions and environments, look at why it never came to be, why we’ll likely never see it at all, and where you can still find remnants of it in the park today.

WDW Radio # 479 - Interview with Duncan Wardle, Former VP of Innovation & Creativity for the Walt Disney Company

I’m so excited to share my conversation with Duncan Wardle with you this week. While you may not recognize his name, he is the former Vice President of Innovation & Creativity for the Walt Disney Company. In his nearly 30 year career, he helped send Buzz Lightyear to space, built a swimming pool on Main Street, USA, flew a turkey first class to Disneyland, and helped countless guests create lasting, magical memories. This week, we sit down to discuss some of Disney’s most fun and unique marketing campaigns, Disney and social media (and the Disneyland podcast), customer service, and so much more. Duncan also shares some tips and tactics to inspire creativity in YOU, and a special announcement as well.

WDW Radio # 478 - Hidden Treasure of WDW - Late-Night at Sanaa Lounge  

WDW Radio # 478 - Hidden Treasure of WDW - Late-Night at Sanaa Lounge

What I love about visiting, and revisiting, Walt Disney World is that there is always something new to discover. It doesn’t matter how many time you’ve been, how much of an expert or veteran you consider yourself, or if you think you’ve done it all, not every special or unique (or even delicious) experience can be found on a map or in a guidebook. This week, I take you with me to one of my favorite places (and times of day) to find a special snack and experience, as we go to Sanaa Lounge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge at Kidani Village. From culinary delights to speciality cocktails, it’s a fun, relaxing experience inspired by the spice markets of Africa that is one of my personal favorites in all of Walt Disney World… and were you just might find me late one evening.

WDW Radio # 476 - Top Ten Cast Member Roles  

WDW Radio # 476 - Top Ten Cast Member Roles

If I asked you to come up with a list of reasons why you love, and continue to visit, Walt Disney World, I’m sure you could very easily come with list of top ten reasons… with 10 being more like guidelines, of course. And for me, near (or at the) top of my list is something that I’m sure is on yours - the Cast Members. And I would also imagine that you may have actually imaged yourself as a Cast Member, or even took the steps to becoming one. And so because I believe (strongly) that the Cast Members’ roles are SO important, fun, and in many cases, truly magical, this week we’re going to look at the Top Ten Cast Member Roles at Walt Disney World - both ones we admire, and ones we could like to be. And then I’ll ask YOU to share your dream Cast Member role with me.

WDW Radio # 475 - Planet Hollywood Observatory LIVE Review  

WDW Radio # 475 - Planet Hollywood Observatory LIVE Review

As Disney Springs continues to grow and evolve from what was Downtown Disney, so have many of the venues which have been there since the Pleasure Island days. One such location is Planet Hollywood, which opened in 1994 amidst the glitz and glamour of Hollywood royalty like Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jessica Rabbit. Recently, the restaurant underwent a transformation - in name, theming, and menu. This week, join me at the table, as we sample the menu, review the decor, and see what at Planet Hollywood had changed, and what has remained the same. And remember... Don’t listen hungry.
