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!
