Join me, Tom Corless, and a cast including Jason Diffendal, Justin Heyman, Denise Hafto, Brian Martsolf, Chris Lastrapes, Adam Roth and Luke Manning for a show that Bridges the Gaps Between You and the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you enjoy all of the Walt Disney World information and fun we have to offer on this “Share a Dream Come True” edition of the WDW News Today Podcast.
To kick off episode 71, we have all the recent happenings from the last week to discuss in our Walt Disney World Resort News and Rumor Report. This time around, we’ll be talking about rumored changes to the Studio Backlot Tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during an upcoming refurbishment, a huge deal on Disney merchandise coming up for Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members at the World of Disney store, and some great discounts for those planning on traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort in early 2009.
After that, Adam Roth joins us for the first time in nearly 6 months for Expedition Everoth, an inside look at Orlando’s various vacation destinations. On this edition, Adam and I talk about the IAAPA Attractions Expo recently held in the central Florida area. Adam also gives us a countdown of his ten best-in-show of things you may soon be seeing at a theme park near you.
Following that, we have another great Walt Disney World based discussion that you voted for. In this week’s opinionated round-table, we’ll be discussing some more recent additions to Walt Disney World and trying to decide whether or not Walt Disney would have approved of them. It’s a meaningful discussion for us, and we hope you’ll enjoy it.
Throughout the program, You’ll notice a number of audio clips I’ve recently collected about Walt and his life. Also be sure to stick around until the end for our annual audio finale playing of “We Share a dream Come True” during this tribute to Walt Disney.
