So this week, we will look at our Top Ten Extinct Attraction Tributes, References, and Relics in the Walt Disney World parks, starting with Magic Kingdom. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 597 - Former Imagineer Josh Shipley Interview This week, as I continue to seek to highlight some of the incredible creatives at the Disney Company, we turn once again to Imagineering, and former Imagineer Josh Shipley. He shares not just his journey from a young age to Cast Member and eventual Imagineer, but his experiences in a variety of roles and disciplines at Walt Disney Imagineering. Josh discusses some of the many projects he worked on for Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Hong Kong, and Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea, as well as his time working on various projects in the theme parks for Marvel. We also talk about LOST, Lincoln, Star Wars, Joe Rohde, Tony Baxter, Star Wars... and a few concepts that never came to be! Josh also share guidance for those looking to seek their own path to Imagineering, valuable lessons learned, and his predictions not just for what's ahead for Marvel in the Disney Parks, but fascinating insight into the future of themed entertainment. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 595 - The One with Walt, Part 2 In Part 2 of “The One With Walt,” we continue to discuss some of the one things we would show and do with Walt Disney, including who from the Disney Company we would want to introduce him to, and questions about movies, television, songs, and more. I’ll also poll the panel in a “lightning round” conversation about what we believe Walt might think of Epcot, the Marvel and Star Wars acquisitions, use of IP in the parks, leadership, and the Company as a whole, before posing the final question of what we would ASK Walt. Of course, I’ll ask you to weigh in on all of these and share your thoughts as well. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 594 - The One with Walt, Part 1 We’ve all asked ourselves, or have been asked questions that begin with “What would Walt think of…” And while it’s a question I’m not sure anyone is qualified to answer, it’s something we’d all like to know, and wish we could hear directly from him. So this week, I want to give you the opportunity to not just ask Walt, but show him, on this week’s show, The One with Walt. In this two-part series, we look at and consider not the one question you would ask (we’ll get to that, too), but the one attraction, show, technology, restaurant, movie, song, person, and other questions that will get you thinking about your answer… and what Walt’s might be. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 593 - Top Ten Disney Villains Part of what makes the hero's journey in storytelling so memorable are the characters that sometimes help make them heroic. And in many cases, for every great hero, there is an equally evil villain. So this week, we're going to look at our Top Ten Disney Villains, including those from the Marvel and Star Wars universes. We will explore, in-depth, what makes a good (or bad) villain, story arc, motivation, sympathies, relationships, and what else makes up and drives their character. We'll also discuss Walt Disney, the evolution of the Disney villain, some "non-traditional" villains, who is on our lists, and why. Of course, I'll want to hear from you and your best (or worst) Disney villain as well. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 592 - Interview with Chef Art Smith Join me at the table in Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Kitchen in Disney Springs in Walt Disney World as I sit down with Chef for a one-on-one interview… and lunch. We discuss his background, working for Walt Disney World as part of the very first Disney College Program, as well as his very personal inspiration for Homecomin’. Chef shares stories (including some he’s never told before) about working for Oprah, his conversation with (and recommendation for) Disney CEO Bob Iger, lessons learned from Disney, entrepreneurial inspiration, and more. As we share a number of items from the Homecomin’ menu together for a mini-live dining review (I think for the first time dining with the Chef and restaurant founder). I’ll be honest… we just started talking and I let the microphone keep on going. We also talk about the opportunities the shutdown afforded him personally and professionally, his charitable work, and much more. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 589 - The Disney-MGM Studio Backlot in Burbank That Never Was This week, we will look at one of the most interesting, unique, yet obscure, unbuilt Disney Parks - The Disney-MGM Studios Backlot in Burbank. That's right, in the mid-80's officials from the city of Burbank, California worked towards an agreement with Disney to build a theme park, retail, dining, hotel, and studio in their downtown district. We will explore the early genesis of the idea, the dream, the Imagineers who worked on the project, storyline, and very detailed look at exactly what this complex was going to include... including some very odd concepts. Of course, we'll find out what problems caused this to not only never be built, but led to a longtime (possibly ongoing) feud for the Disney Company, as well as the overall aftermath... and what ideas survived. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

WDW Radio # 588 - Top Ten Countries We Would Add to World Showcase, History, Concepts, Lost Pavilions, and What May Be Next This week, we visit World Showcase… the one that never was, and the one that might be. We will first look at the early history of the idea of bringing different nations to the Disney Parks, because it didn’t start in Epcot… but in Disneyland, with Walt Disney. We’ll explore early concepts for Walt Disney World, including its originally planned location... again, not in Epcot. Before exploring what we’d like to see come next to World Showcase, we’ll discuss what it takes to bring a new country to Epcot, as well as the spaces and places possible new pavilions can be located. We’ll then share our Top Ten Countries We Would Add to World Showcase, planned countries that were never built, and rumors of what may come next. Of course, I want YOU to share what country you’d like to see added to World Showcase, where, and why. ---------------------------------- WDWRadio.com/Community - Join the community and conversation WDWRadio.com/Support - Join the WDW Radio NATION to get monthly rewards, and help support the show WDWRadioLIVE.com - Watch, chat and CALL-IN Wednesdays 7:30pm ET on Facebook LIVE WDWRadio.com/Events - Upcoming WDW Radio Disney meets, On the Road events, cruises, and more!

Not only is Lou one of the most knowledgeable Disney gurus out there, he has created a warm, welcoming community. Highest recommendation.

Perhaps my Favorite podcast of all time, Lou has captured the heart and soul of the modern Disney-holic with his podcast, his wide range of episode format (everything from food reviews to interviews with iconic people in Disney history) the colorful personalities of his recurring co-stars (travel bloggers, celebrations magazine journalists, etc.) and with nearly 800 episodes on the airwaves it is abundantly clear that the crew at WDWRadio has, in all certainty, captured the magic for all to enjoy.

The show is really produced well. But lou does need to remove his rose colored glasses. In his eyes Disney can do no wrong. He also seems to have an unhealthy obsession with the overpriced mostly average food. He does have a listener feedack section where he plays voicemails, however he seems to play the voicemails of only certain people. I know I have heard one particular person numerous times.His books are entertaining, however a lot of the information is either widely known or can easily be found else where.. It does get old....Ok show if you are blinded by the Disney Magic.

If you're a fan of Disney World you should not pass up this podcast. If you haven't visited Disney World the WDW Radio Show will inform and entertain. The host, Lou Mongello, is well spoken and keeps the pace of the show just right. You will find Lou's topics of conversation with his guests facinating and the production quality is excellent. Well worth the download!
