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.
Well I’ve got some exciting news. Well not news really, but it could be. So Traci and I were talking this week, and we’ve both got the itch to return to Walt Disney World. Now it so happens that work might be sending me down to Orlando for one of two conventions this year, and if it works out, Traci may accompany me down just for a couple of days before the convention begins, and we’ll probably go to Walt Disney World for a day or two. So I may have some new audio to start incorporating into the memories.
In the meantime, I’ll have to continue to satisfy the WDW itch with my current memory collection. And today’s memory is a Walt Disney World classic. Our request for today’s memory came from Laura in Pennsylvania. In a continuation of her email (she requested the World Showcase Players) she said:
My last request is audio of a ride on the monorail around the Magic Kingdom hotels. That may sound strange, since the ride is really made by what you're seeing, but honestly it's nice to just hear it and then imagine what you would be seeing.Laura, I don’t have an uncut version around the complete resort loop. But I do have others that are still just as cool. In fact this is going to be a long memory as I’m probably going to include a bunch of good stuff. I also tossed it out to Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, and all I got was a “That would be pretty cool” from Dan, and a couple of likes on Facebook. I would love to hear what you all think of the monorails.
Anyways, let’s get to the memories. We’re going to start off where everyone wants to start, by going to the Magic Kingdom. It’s 2006 and I’m at the parks by myself after work. I’ve hopped the monorail at the TTC to get to the Magic Kingdom and we’ll join up right as the monorail is pulling away. Pay attention and you’ll get to hear the special Disneyland Anniversary announcements in the monorail spiel. Next, we’ll jump to September 2010. The family has been having fun in the Magic Kingdom but now we are headed to Epcot for a couple of hours before we go back to finish out the evening at the Magic Kingdom. We’ll hop the Monorail from the Magic Kingdom to the TTC, and then strait into another monorail from the TTC to Epcot. Once we arrive at Epcot I’ll jump to our final memory, a special return trip from Epcot to the TTC. This memory is from our anniversary trip in 2006, and it’s actually our Anniversary day. Traci and I have taken it easy and are headed over to the Magic Kingdom for a little while to wait for our dinner reservations at the California Grille. And to make this ride even more special, we were able to ride in the front of the Monorail. So the audio today is from that now lost special treat of riding in the front with the driver.
