So today kind of snuck up on me. As I went to bed last night I realized I had never sent out a message seeking comments on Twitter, Google+, or Facebook. So sorry about that folks, but I figured you’d rather have podcast. So I’m just rolling with the initial request I’ve got.

With Thanksgiving being celebrated here in the United States, my time has been completely consumed. We’re cleaning and cooking, picking up family and laughing at the kids. It’s a time of joy and... well... thankfulness. I thought what better thing to be thankful for than good music, and patriotic music at that. So today I’m going to visit a memory I haven’t shared yet, the Voices of Liberty.

Well like last week, I’m scrambling to get caught up. I think the recent changes to Google+ have taken too much of my attention, and now I’m behind in my planning for our next memory. So I actually had to get up early this morning and still write the script before I could even record. Thankfully it’s about some recordings I’m very familiar with.

So this week got turned on it’s perverbial ear, and I sadly didn’t get to ask you what you thought about our next featured memory, so instead I’m going to update a previous memory. Today we’re going to stick with the time of year we’re about to celebrate and catch a new ride on the Haunted Mansion. This time, the sound system has been upgraded, and you’ll really hear the affects. It’s much improved over the recording I featured on Memory 019.

Well as you know, Walt Disney World and specifically the Magic Kingdom turned 40 this past week. Sadly I wasn’t able to swing a trip down there to attend the festivities, though from what I’m reading and seeing from the day, I’m not sure I missed much. Still, it’s a time to celebrate and remember these 40 special years, and what better way than through you the listeners. So I threw the question out on Twitter and Facebook and got some great responses. I’m not going to read all of them, but if you’d like to see what others had to say, stop by our Facebook page (you can find the link on the WDW-Memories.net website).

I can’t believe what I just witnessed. I’m a huge sports fan, and in particular a baseball fan. Sadly my team, the Orioles have been out of it since opening day, but waking up this morning to find out they played spoiler, in addition to Tampa pulling off the comeback of the season to clinch the wild-card... just an awesome morning. But this podcast isn’t about baseball, it’s about one of my other great passions, Disney. And today, we’re going to be revisiting a polarizing attraction, one that seems to have many lovers and haters. We’re going to be catching a ride on DINOSAUR.

Today’s memory was requested by Bret in Chicago, IL. His original email from January 2010 said:
I went on my first trip without the bulk of my family this past June, and my brother told me about your podcasts while we were there, I've been listening to them on and off since then and especially the past few days... I was wondering if you had a recording of Pirates of the Caribbean before it was changed to add Jack Sparrow. It has been one of my favorites since I was little, even before all the movies, so I'd love to get a refresher as it used to be.

It’s another early morning here in my “studio” and once again, I’m up before the sun. But thankfully today, we’re going back to a memory that is full of enough energy and happiness that it’s sure to pick me up. Today, we’re going to return to Frontierland to watch the Country Bear Jamboree.

I know some of you are probably thinking “didn’t he already do that?”. Well not really. In Memory 042, we did get to see a special Christmas edition of the attraction, but I still haven’t fullfilled the request for the traditional show audio. So it’s time I did that.

It’s finally here, 50 shows. It seems like only yesterday I began this podcasting journey. In reality it’s been almost 5 years. You may not know this, but I released my first episode back on September 21, 2006. I started out with good intentions, hoping every week I would release a new show, but I quickly realized that took far more free time than I had, and I quickly attempted to switch to a bi-weekly format. Sadly over the years I’ve released on a very inconsistent schedule, and that get’s us to where we are today, 50 shows (plus some bonus ones) in 5 years, but I’ve hopefully found a rhythm now, and feel like things are getting more consistent. And it seems to be paying off too, as our numbers are starting to grow. So I thought I’d take this moment to welcome all my new subscribers, and maybe reintroduce myself and this show.

In September 2010, my family (consisting of my dad, sister, Traci, and Susie) all went to Walt Disney World for the day. This was Susie's first trip into a Walt Disney World park, and she loved it. Today's podcast is a 3 parter. First we're going to relive the day with various audio clips from the park as I recount the days activities.

I’m not sure about you, but it’s hot here. We’re in the midst of a record heatwave, something that reminds me a lot of Walt Disney World, and in my opinion the hottest of the parks, Disney’s Animal Kingdom. However, thanks to modern technology, our memory today can be enjoyed from the comfort of a highly air-conditioned room, sipping your favorite cool beverage. What’s worse (and thankfully I never experienced this) our memory today is of a show that used to be in an outdoor arena in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I’m speaking of course of Festival of the Lion King.

We’re rolling along through our request list still, and it’s feeling good. I’ve had so many requests over the years, and I’m glad to finally be getting caught up. And to celebrate the United States Independence Day, let’s visit that very patriotic pavilion... Mexico in Epcot.

Watch out, I’m on a roll here folks. It’s been only two weeks and I’m back with yet another Memory. At this rate, I might be caught up on my requests by... oh... next year. Ok, so I’ve still got a ways to go, but this is a good start right?

So this is yet again another “old” request. Initially, Chris (our requester from Memory 45) also requested this attraction back in 2009. Since then, I’ve received another request from Andy in NY for a recording of “it’s a small world” from before 2000 (which unfortunately I don’t have).

I firstly have to apologize for my lack of posts, both on the blog and on the podcast. I think it would be an understatement for me to simply say that life has gotten busy. Between a 5 month old who is now teething, and a 3 year old who has patiently waited for daddy to complete her new swing set, there has been little free time to write and record a new podcast. So I’m trying something new. Instead of my daily 5AM trip to the gym, this week I’m going to try and record an episode and hopefully be able to edit it down during breaks, in order to get it out sooner rather then later. So if I sound a little groggy still, that’s the reason. So let’s get to the reason we’re all listening.

Today’s memory will be one that was requested quite a while ago, and by a few people. Today, we’re going to take a ride on Living With The Land. I have received requests from Dan, Shayne, and Daniel to relive this memory. To make it up to all of you for the delay, I’m going to actually include two memories in one.

Farewell Mickey’s Toontown Fair

5:00 AM
Susie with both miceIt seems to me that everyone in the Disney community is bidding farewell to Mickey’s Toontown Fair right now, and I figured I should also offer my thoughts. Ironically, until about a year ago these thoughts and opinions would have been totally different. But now, I have 2 small children.

As I’ve said before, I’ve been traveling to Walt Disney World for many years, mostly trying to cram in as much as we could into a single day. So, for a bunch of adults and teens, a kiddy land with no real rides was a waste of space in my mind. In fact, I’m not sure I even knew how to get to the land for the first few years of its existence. On longer trips (more than a day) with friends or family who had never experienced Disney World, I would bite the bullet and take them in to ride Goofys Barnstormer, and then quickly back out to the “real park” so we wouldn’t miss any more time on the mountains. Then three years ago, that all changed with the birth of my daughter, and on our last trip, I definitely see the value.

So it’s been snowing out here a lot, and it’s got me thinking about that warm and magical place we all know and love. Yes, I’m dreaming about Walt Disney World again, and dying to relive another memory with you. So as I return to my request queue, I see that this memory is going to be another favorite of mine. Today we’re going to hop a ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority.

Becoming more 'Tangled' up in Disney

5:00 AM
So I’m sitting at my desk, digging through code while listening to podcasts on my phone, and up pops the Reduced Shakespeare Company Podcast Episode 212, Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Rapunzel and Episode 213. Epic Two-Parter. It got me to thinking about the night I saw this movie, and the impression it made on me.

Let me begin with why it was so memorable. You see, Traci and I saw Disney's Tangled on a date night, only hours before our son was born. His arrival was a bit of a surprise too, as he was about 2 weeks early. The whole weekend leading up to that Monday night, we had been talking about taking a date day on Friday, and maybe doing some Christmas shopping, but there was something kind of hinting in the back of our minds that maybe we shouldn’t count on that. So throughout the day Monday, we decided we should try to go out that evening. The grandparents were game for watching Susie, Tangled was playing at a perfect time for us to watch it and get back at a decent hour, it was all falling into place.
