WDW Radio # 522 - Top Ten Buildings in Walt Disney World

This week, we will explore Walt Disney World from the outside in, as we discuss our Top Ten Buildings in Walt Disney World. From the parks to the resorts, we will look beyond the structures and stories, but also their architectural significance, accuracy, design, and function. We'll examine the different types of entertainment architecture, the engineering marvels, as well as why they resonate with us on a personal, subjective level.

WDW Radio # 521 - Dan Cockerell Interview

WDW Radio # 521 - Dan Cockerell Interview

The Cockerell name is synonymous with not just leadership, but a legacy of customer service and exceptional guest experience in the Disney Company. Dan Cockerel’s story of summers in the Epcot parking lot to VP of Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom is a shining example of not just what you can learn from the DIsney Company, but being able to make and leave positive change in your wake. Dan joins me this week to talk about his journey from the Walt Disney World College Program, to Disneyland Paris, leading and learning from Cast Members in Walt Disney World, to using technology to communicate with them on a large, yet intimate scale. You’ll learn not just about his time at Disney, but lessons you can use in your own life and path as well.

WDW Radio # 520 - Maria and Enzo’s in Disney Springs LIVE Review

Ciao, and welcome, as this week, I invite you to join me and some other friends, like, you, around the table at Maria and Enzo’s Ristorante in Disney Springs. We not only step back in time to the golden age of air travel in this warm, wonderfully-themed restaurant, but gather around the table to share and savor in traditional Italian cuisine. We will make our way through the menu, from appetizers to dessert (and everything in between), and discuss not just our thoughts on where this restaurant ranks to us in Walt Disney World, but how it compares to an even tougher test… our Italian grandmother’s home cooking. You may not want to listen hungry.

WDW Radio # 519 - Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Interview

WDW Radio # 519 - Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Interview

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 10 years of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the journey that began with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk led to a string of blockbuster films that has not only defined the superhero genre, but has raised the bar of large-scale storytelling. I sat down with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and discussed not just his personal journey from the kid in Jersey who loved the movies, but the the filmmaking process of bringing these comics and characters to life, meaningful storylines, the characters, tone, process, as well as the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's a fascinating look at the mindset, challenges, opportunities, motivations, and process. It's more than a conversation just about creating superhero movies, but a personal inspirational journey as well.

WDW Radio # 517 - Countdown to Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1

The upcoming release of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is not just an important film and milestone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but is one that might affect the Disney Parks as well. This week, I have assembled some of Earth’s (and the WDW Radio Nation’s) mightiest heroes to count down to Infinity War. We will discuss all of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in order, and share our Top 5 MCU films. We will also look at what we expect from Infinity War (spoiler-free), and give you a primer on what we know, what we think we know, the cast, characters, and maybe what we think might be coming to Disney Parks in the not-so-infinite future.
