WDW Radio - Walt Disney Radio (arts and entertainment)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: Yes, with reservations
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: WDW Radio - Your Walt Disney World Information Station
WEB ADDRESS: http://www.wdwradio.com/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: WDW Radio is the award-winning online radio show dedicated to celebrating the magic of Walt Disney World. Hosted and produced by author Lou Mongello, this family-friendly show covers WDW news, vacation planning, reviews, trivia, history, fun facts, contests and features exclusive interviews with Disney Imagineers, executives, celebrities and more. The unofficial "Walt Disney World Information Station," WDW Radio has been named Best Travel Podcast for 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, and is also home to the Walt Disney World Trivia Books and Audio Guides to Walt Disney World.
The companion web site, WDWRadio.com, also features a popular blog, collection of fun videos and tours from the Disney parks, reviews, interviews and so much more. It also is home to one of the internet's largest Disney online communities and discussion groups. The audio guides and signed copies of the trivia books are available for purchase right from the web site. Celebrations Magazine is also available at CelebrationsPress.com.
Lou is also the founder of the Dream Team Project (http://DreamTeamProject.org), created for the purpose of raising money to grant the wishes of children with serious illnesses to visit Walt Disney World through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. Donations and proceeds of special fundraising events run by The Dream Team Project are all used to help make the life of a child a bit brighter during a difficult time for them and their family.
MY REVIEW: If you're planning on visiting Disney World (that's the one in Florida, as opposed to Disneyland, which is in California), then you simply must subscribe to this blog. And take notes, so you'll be fully informed when you make your visit.
I say, "Yes, with reservations," because by subscribing to the blog and not visiting the website, you miss the radio portion of it. Podcasts are available on a weekly basis.
One way or another, do something with this blog/website if you intend to go to Walt Disney World. The more you know, the more you'll enjoy it.
