My Disney Memory for 2010

10:18 AM
I'm in the shot So as the year 2010 comes to a close, I had to stop and ponder what my favorite Disney Memory was from this year. There were so many to choose from. Was it the time I took Susie into the Disney Store in our mall, and all the tears of an active tantrum ceased, and were replaced by a smile that just lit up the room? Was it sitting on the couch with Susie and watching Dumbo for her first time? Nope, neither one of those. This memory was bigger. This memory was huge. This Disney Memory will forever be locked in my head, so I can see it as if I were right there. I’m of course talking about Susie’s first ride on a Disney Attraction, which of course was Dumbo The Flying Elephant in Disneyland. I’ve really already covered this memory back in Memory 041, but I have to touch on it again, because it was so big for both Susie and I. (You could always go back and listen again if you wanted to refresh your Memory)

Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can't actually be there.

For our special Christmas Memory this year, I'm digging deep for one that is really special. So I have recently begun the work of migrating all our old video tapes to DVD. This has unearthed a plethora of special memories, and I found one that is perfect for our special Christmas Memory. This video is of the MIA Country Bear Jamboree Christmas Special.

Remembering a Wish

5:00 AM
Lighting up the sky
The Holiday Road Podcast (a great Disney binaural podcast) recently released HRP 017 – Wishes. As I was listening to it, I couldn’t help but remember the many fun times I’ve had watching Wishes. I remember watching it with friends on various trips. I remember watching it by myself while in Orlando for Business. But mostly, I remember one very special memory. It was on our Anniversary trip in 2006, and Traci and I actually got to watch Wishes three times on this trip.

Reliving a Chocolate Memory

6:00 PM
Hershey Park from the Kiss
One thing I wanted to do with my blog is also comment on other podcasts that trigger a memory of my own.

This week, on the Inside the Magic podcast, Ricky took a weekend trip up to Hershey Park. In the show, he talks about his time in the parks, but specifically spends a good portion talking about the Hershey Factory Tour. I kind of equate this tour to riding Imagination at Epcot. It has a hokey and fun attitude towards the subject matter, not taking itself too seriously, but keeping it entertaining for all ages. In any case, watching the video and listening to Ricky discuss his trip quickly triggered many memories for me of Hershey Park.

Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can't actually be there.

Earlier this year we took a trip to California which included 2 days at the Disneyland Resort. In this memory, we revisit that trip with commentary by both Lou and Susie (Traci opted out this time). After the trip review, stay tuned for a special audio clip of Susie's first Disney ride, Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

It’s another beautiful day, and my plans have already changed. I was thinking this would be a fun time to review my days at Disneyland, but that’s going to have to wait, at least for one more week. Instead I’m going to bring you another request. This one came from a pair people. Both Chris from Montreal, and Denise. And Denise was kind enough to share her memory of Mickey’s PhilharMagic with us:

So I’m back from California and boy what a trip. Disneyland is really a special place, and I think I have managed to fall more in love with Disney California Adventure, even without seeing the new World of Color show. But my trip report is for another podcast. Let’s just say, I’ll take Walt Disney World over Disneyland, but take either one of those way before the next park.

Well it’s been a long time. My work has been absorbing all of my week days, meaning the weekends go to my family, so that unfortunately has left me with little time left over for hobbies. But that’s beginning to change, and I’m hoping to get back to my every other week format of podcasting, but we’ll just have to see.

Now before we get into the memory, I have a big announcement. I’M GOING TO DISNEYLAND. That’s right, not Disney World, Disneyland. In June I’ll be making a trip to California for my brothers wedding and our family vacation. Part of that, will of course be a couple of days in Disneyland, where I hope to collect some memories that I can share with you.

Memory 037 - A Free Day Trip Report

So I’m branching out a little bit this time. Today, we’re not going to have a show completely devoted to audio like we normally do. This time, we’re going to have a quick trip report.

On this past December 27, I had the privilege of spending my birthday at Walt Disney World… sort of. A Few years ago we took a chance and actually went into the parks on my Birthday and that was a big mistake. We made it to the Animal Kingdom early, but by the time we made it to Epcot before Noon, the crowds were already getting Crazy. I’ll never forget that Soarin’ had a 210 minute wait, and we later found out all the parks but Epcot had closed their gates that day. So we opted not to do that again, and try getting some of that Disney Christmas Magic just by going to the various Resorts and seeing their decorations. I’m going to try my best to recap for you the days events as my family, consisting of my wife Traci, our daughter Susie, and her Grandma and two Grandpas wander around the resorts.
