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.

WDW Radio # 514 - Top Ten Emotional Experiences in Walt Disney World

WDW Radio # 514 - Top Ten Emotional Experiences in Walt Disney World

Visiting Walt Disney World (or not visiting enough) often evokes an emotional response from us. Not just that lump in your throat when you see something that gives you all the feels, but our emotions includes a wide variety of feelings such as wonder, joy, and love. This week, we'll explore not just the psychology and sociology behind this range of emotions, but the who, what, why, when, and how of these moments, places, people, and experiences in Walt Disney World. Of course, I’ll want to hear from you, and the most emotional experience you’ve had (or have) when you visit.

WDW Radio # 513 - Interview with Muppet Cast Member Dave Goelz - Gonzo the Great, Zoot, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Beauregard and more!

If you would have told seven year-old Lou Mongello that one day he would have the opportunity to interview one of his favorite Muppets, he would have dropped his Muppet puppets on the floor and lost his little mind. Well, more than four decades later, he did just that, as this week, I am excited to share my conversation with Dave Goelz, the puppeteer and voice actor who worked with Jim Henson and performed as The Great Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Waldorf, Zoot, and many others, including roles in Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and as the voice of Figment in the Journey into Imagination with Figment attraction at Epcot. We talk about his career with the Muppets, life as and with Gonzo, and his new movie, Muppet Guys Talking.

WDW Radio # 511 - Interview with Disney Legend Tom Nabbe

This week, I invite you to meet the man who went from a Disneyland Day One Guest, to a Disneyland Day Two Cast Member. A boy who went from influencing Walt, to a man who managed the monorail in Walt Disney World, and helped open Disneyland Paris. His name is Tom Nabbe, and his journey from boy with a dream to Disney Legend is both fascinating and inspiring. Join me as I sit down with Tom to talk about his unique career path, from stories of working with Walt, to his window on Main Street, USA, and more.
