In this week’s show, Jake and I give a trip report on our visit down to the world! Things didn’t go as planned on many levels, some funny, some very serious; still we had the best time we could and share some of the highlights of the trip with you! We’ll talk about the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, running in costume, and in the RAIN AND COLD!! We’ll also get into what we like about the new Mine Train attraction, the state of the Polynesian Village, and tell you the fun and perils of the great Monorail Crawl! So join us and sit back and enjoy the show, because if you’re a Disney Geek, you’re among friends here!
This year’s Wine and Dine Half was a blast despite the fact that it was wet, rainy, and cold!! That has everything to do with the fact that the people who come make to a RunDisney event are a special group of dedicated, fun, slightly insanely obsessed Disney fans! Were you there? Leave me a comment below if you were! Here are a few pics of the costumes and people we met who made the event so special:
Welcome to episode 31! On this week’s show, come with Disney Historian Jim Korkis and I as we board the Mousenger Time Machine to a favorite memory of the Past, the Fort Wilderness Railroad! Operating from 1973 – 1980 it was the brainchild of Disney Legend Ward Kimball and Roger Broggie. For a long time it was a favorite way to not only travel the Fort Wilderness Resort, but an attraction in and of itself. To this day, it is a sentimental favorite, and you’ll learn why it was eventually shut down despite it’s great popularity. So now I invite you to sit back and enjoy the show, because if you’re a Disney Geek , here you’re among friends!

Hi everybody, and welcome to Episode 30! On this week’s show we have a great guest: voice actor Mark Silverman, who brings the Hollywood Tower of Terror’s Rod Serling to life on the small screen! Being a life-long Disney Geek himself, he reveals how at first he was more thrilled that he would actually get to go to Imagineering Headquarters than he was about the job itself! Mark is a great storyteller, join us as he tells all about he grew up going to Disneyland, as a kid would call Imagineering with endless questions, and how it was a dream come true to become the voice of one of Disney’s all time most iconic attractions of all time! So now is the time to sit back ad enjoy the show, because if you’re a Disney Geek, here you’re among friends!
