Jason Diffendal

Jason has been a lifelong fan of the Disney parks since his first visit at age 2. His biennial pilgrimages during his childhood accelerated into semi-annual visits by the year 2000, when he also Joined the Disney Vacation Club. Luckily, Jason’s bride-to-be was also a Disney fan, which allowed his infatuation with the Disney parks to continue, and ultimately culminated in their wedding at Disney's Wedding Pavilion in September 2003. Early in 2007, Jason began his involvement with the planning for what became Celebration 25, the unofficial fan gathering to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Epcot®. Soon thereafter, Jason met Tom Corless at a pin trading meet in New Jersey, and became part of the WDW News Today podcast starting with Episode 17. Jason has been involved with the WDWNT Network ever since, and can't seem to escape no matter how hard he tries.

  • Please no Muppets, please no Muppets.

    I was there in May. As the exit doors opened and the crowd began to leave, a group of Disney suits came walking in through the exit. I couldn’t hear exactly what they were saying but they were pointing at the statues along the wall and said the word Muppets several times. I love the Muppets, but not in the AA please.

  • Hi,
    can you please tell me why you never post my comments? even though I do not use foul language or respond sarcastically? Thank you

  • More important question – will the Voices of Liberty be “down” as well? Unfortunately, it seems likely, as they typically take some time each year for rehearsals, and this would provide a convenient time.

    • Just to add – I wonder if this downtime may be related to the “Club 33” that is going into the pavilion. If the work there involves the lobby area, it might require the attraction be closed for a while.
      Maybe they’ll use this time to fix the problem with the rising curtain, but since that’s been an issue for over 15 years, I’m not optimistic.
