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:

Episode 31 – The Fort Wilderness Railroad – With Historian Jim Korkis!

by Rod Wheaton

FWRR2

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!
