12 Days of Christmas, Memory 10, 4 For a Dollar: As we exited the backstage tour, what do my wondering ears should hear but 4 men singing in perfect harmony. That’s right 4 For A Dollar was performing in the flatbread grille area, to a less than enthusiastic crowd. Traci and I quickly high-tail it over and take a seat near the front. The guys sing 3 more songs to which Traci and I are quite amazed. Afterwards, all four of them walk over to us and chat with us for about 2 minutes (which you’ll get to hear at the end of the recording). Fortunately for us, nobody else was really paying them much attention, because they are one of the best musical groups in all of Walt Disney World, and we got almost a private showing. Anyways, here’s 4 For a Dollar.

12 Days of Christmas, Memory 04, La Befana: Like yesterday, we missed the start of this story, partially because we couldn’t find where she was. We turn around into a bright December sun in 2006, and there she is in the middle of the plaza. We probably only missed the first couple of minutes, and I regret this, because she was really quite good. Anyways, she will share with us her story of missing her chance to meet the Baby Jesus, and that she continues to look for him every year.

As a special this year, we're going to celebrate with the 12 Memories of Christmastime in Walt Disney World. Each day, from now through Christmas day, I will be releasing a short podcast with minimal editing, and taking you directly to a special holiday treat, something that can be found at Walt Disney World during the Holiday season.

12 Days of Christmas, Memory 01, The Three Kings: We're going to start our 12 Days of Christmas in Epcot at the Mexico Pavilion. It's a warm morning in December 2006, and the sun is shining bright. We arrive outside the Mexico pavilion and strike up a conversation with the handler for our special hosts. All of a sudden, we hear the voices behind us, and the 3 Magical Kings walk right by us up to the stage in the front, where they begin to tell us about how Christmas is celebrated in Mexico, with traditions, folklore, and parties.
