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.
So I don’t know about you but I’m pumped for Christmas. I just feel like “Ok, Thanksgiving is done, time to turn on the Christmas music”. I also start reflecting to a time when Traci and I were about to take a trip to Walt Disney World, just the two of us, for a whole week. All the planning, all the research, and all the excitement were building to what was going to be a great anniversary trip. It turned out to be a great trip, one filled with many memories, memories such as catching Turtle Talk with Crush for the first time with my wife. Then later, we built more memories of this attraction with first visits for my family, my daughter, and then this summer was my son’s.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s first hear (yes, I said hear) our request from Brandon in Texas.
Thank you Brandon for calling in. We’ll be hearing more from Brandon over the next few weeks. And as usual, I tossed the topic out to Social Media to see if anyone else had a great story to share of Turtle Talk, and here are just some of those responses.

Eryka Justine Bray I love this! I like to go in and just watch and listen to all of the kids who are amazed that they are actually talking to him. I remember one time we went, Crush asked a little boy what his favorite food was. The little boy said "Turtle Soup". Crush got this funny look on his face and the whole room laughed. It's amazing what little kids can come up with. I love this attraction and can't wait to hear the audio!And also on Facebook, Laura wrote:
Laura Noker i think every time i've been there a kid has asked crush if he knows the teenage mutant ninja turtles. apparently it's a question to which everyone must know the answer. (i think it's generally no, by the way)Great stories, and again, there are more. Just go visit our social media pages to read these and other stories submitted by more listeners like you. In the mean time, let’s get down to reliving another great Walt Disney World Memory.
As I was talking about earlier, I’ve seen this show many times, so I’ve got different versions to choose from, so I’ve elected to choose my two favorite. We’ll start off today with a memory from our Anniversary trip in 2006. It’s early December and Traci and I are just starting our 5 day vacation at Epcot. Our day is just beginning and we wanted to catch one of my favorite newer attractions. Remember I’d been traveling to Orlando by myself for a few months so I was able to scout out some great things to do for our vacation, and this was high on my list. So Traci and I wait our turn in line, back when you used to wait in the middle of the old Sea Base floor. Eventually we’re let in, and are treated to something magical.
The second memory I’m choosing is from this summer. It’s June 2012, and my family and I are joined by my father, brother and his family, and sister and her family. We’ve had a great day running around the Magic Kingdom in the morning and then Epcot in the evening. There are a few of the group who have never been to Walt Disney World, so we wanted to make sure we saw one of the most magical attractions in the park.
