So is anyone else confused? Did we miss Thanksgiving? Why are we already focused on Christmas? Maybe because there is so much money to be made right? Well I’m going to take this moment and be thankful. You know what I’m thankful for?
  1. My God. 
  2. My wife and children. 
  3. My Friends 
  4. My country and the freedoms it gives me. 
  5. Music. 
  6. A place like Walt Disney World where I can go escape from reality and surround myself with pure joy and happy memories. 
  7. Listeners and friends like you that also love to talk and share your Disney magic wherever you are.

Thanksgiving is special in its own way and should not be missed I think. One more thing I’m thankful for are the Cast Members in the parks. Today we’re going to take down the curtain a bit and get to see some of the work that goes into creating a show. Today we’re going back to catch the Pocahontas and her Forest Friends Animal Training show.

I need an escape, how about you? It just seems like these past couple of weeks have been brutal, both at work and in the world in general. I want to escape to a happy place, and what better than a vacation in the happiest place on earth Walt Disney World. One of my favorite things to do while visiting the parks is to watch Fireworks. Every trip I take now to the parks ends with Fireworks if possible. If the park I’m in doesn’t have fireworks that evening, I’ll park hop somewhere just to be able to see fireworks.

Ok, fall is officially here. The leaves are changing to beautiful colors here in Kentucky, the heater is on in the house, and the World Series of Baseball has begun. Yeah, my Orioles didn’t make the post season, but this is still top quality baseball that is worth watching, even if you’re daydreaming about being in Walt Disney World. Sometimes when I daydream about being back in the Magic Kingdom, I’ll revisit those memories of attractions that were retired, attractions like The Legend of The Lion King, which used to run in the Fantasyland Theater. You know, the place where Mickey’s Philharmagic now lives?

So right now, I don’t have a request I can fulfill (hint hint: great time to send your request in), so I got to choose. So I started going back through my older recordings to see what I might not have shared at all yet and I came across Legend of The Lion King.

Ok, so that trip report last memory took a long time to complete, and it was very long, but I hope all of you enjoyed it. Today, let’s get back to a bit more normal show. I’ll be digging into my backlog of requests and pulling out a show idea that came in a while ago that I’ve been sitting on because I had not had the pleasure of riding this new attraction yet. Today we’re going to head back the Magic Kingdom for a ride on the brand new Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid.

Today's memory is a trip report special. On September 4, my family and I took a day of our vacation in Clearwater, and drove over to Orlando to visit Mickey Mouse in the the Magic Kingdom. This is our first trip to Walt Disney World with just the 4 of us, so we were curious how things would turn out. Well we had a blast (would you expect anything less than that at Walt Disney World).

It’s here. My summer vacation. As of the time of this recording I’m packing up and preparing to leave tomorrow for my week in Florida. And good news, we’ll be taking a break from the beach, and spending a day at Walt Disney World. Of course, you know what that means, more audio for me to share with you. Based on our preliminary plans too, it’s probably all going to be from the Magic Kingdom, but that’s not so bad since there’s all this new Fantasyland stuff to explore. I’m going to just start my recorder from the time we get inside the perimeter, and let it run till the time we leave it. This also means a new audio trip report on my return, so keep an ear out for that later. Hey, and if you’re going to be in the Magic Kingdom August 3-5 (we’re leaning towards the 4th, but still not sure which day) send me an email, text or call the voicemail line, or just keep an eye out for me (I’ll have my WDW-Memories shirt on). I’d love to meet up with you. And if you can’t be there, keep an eye on Twitter, I may be tweeting at various times throughout the day.

Now, let’s get to the important stuff, our memory for this week.

So like usual, our memory was requested by one of our listeners. This is a continuation of Brandon’s voicemail requests in Memory 101 - Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage, and sadly my last one I’ll be able to fulfill for now. Today we’re going to return to a now extinct attraction, and catch a showing of Journey into Narnia: Creating The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Memory 101, it’s like the new Millenium. I guess technically this would be 100 memories, since Memory 001 only told a background and didn’t share anything. But then there’s the 12 or so Christmas Specials I have released, so really this would be like 112 memories... carry the one... Never mind. We’ll just call it 101. And it’s a great show that I’ve been waiting for someone to request for a while. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has shown Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage, for decades now. And I personally think it is probably the best stage show in all of Walt Disney World.

100 Episodes! I can’t believe I’ve actually reached this milestone. I feel like there should be a trumpet fanfare or something . By the way, that was a hint. That’s right, we’re doing more Future Corps, and you can thank Paul Barrie and Magic Joe from the Window to the Magic podcast for that. I got started in a twitter conversation with the both of them on April 8 and they mentioned they would love to hear everything else I have on Future Corps, so I thought about it, and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate 100 episodes than to go back to where it all started.

99 Memories... you know what that means... special memory episode next time. Yep, I’ve been thinking about Memory 100 for a little while now and Paul and Magic Joe from Window to the Magic have given me an idea of what I’ll do. But you’ll just have to tune in next time to find out what it is. For today though, I was inspired by all the news about SpectroMagic. If you haven’t heard, the scuttlebutt on the internet is that they have recently destroyed various SpectroMagic parade floats, taking away any opportunity for the return of this parade in the future. This saddens me greatly as I loved this nighttime parade, possibly even more than the Main Street Electrical Parade. To me, the music is better, and I loved the little guys with the white faces. Other then that, I guess they’re really the same parade right?

I can’t believe it’s July already. By the time this comes out, we will have celebrated our Independence Day here in the United States, and are now looking at upcoming summer vacations. Me, I’m not traveling again, not till the unofficial end of summer in September, but that’s fine with me. I’ve had 3 road trips over the last 4 weekends and I’m content to have a nice quiet weekend at home with the family right now. In September though, we’re planning our annual pilgrimage to Florida to spend time with our family and go to the beach in Clearwater. And if you’re in Florida, why would you not also go to Walt Disney World right? That’s right, we’re going to try to get over to Orlando for a day (maybe 2) and have some fun with the kids. I can’t wait to see how different it will be with our kids this time. Each time we go, they’re a little older, and understand the stories a little more. Stories such as the one we’re featuring in today’s memory. Today we’re going to catch a showing of Voyage of The Little Mermaid in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

I don’t know about you, but I need an escape. My reality is becoming more stressful. A very good friend of mine just lost his battle with Cancer, the requirements of my new job are taking their toll on me, and a summer trip seems so far away. Thankfully we can escape with the simple use of our Memories to a place we all love.

Today we’ll once again escape to Walt Disney World  and this time to another place to escape reality is the Movies, but more specifically a movie set. Today we’re going to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to take the Studio Backlot Tour.

I’m very proud of him, and all he has accomplished, and I look forward to seeing all he will accomplish in the years to come, and see how he will Change the world. Speaking of changing the world, we’re going to visit a Memory predicated on Changing a world also. Today we get to ride Captain EO.

We’re flying through spring and heading strong into Summer Vacation. While most people are planning trips, some of them maybe a trip to Walt Disney World, I am looking towards January for mine. Yep, that’s our Disney Cruise, but in the meantime all we do is wait and read up online about the cruise. This is the time that just seems to drag on. I know soon things will begin happening again though, so I look forward to that day. Meanwhile, lets get back to Walt Disney World and blaze a trail through the forests Disney’s Animal Kingdom to the back and catch a showing of the Flights of Wonder.

So I don’t know about where you live, but here in Kentucky the weather has been about as perfect as you can get. It’s 70 degrees, clear blue skies, bright sunny days, and cool nights. Spring has finally arrived (of course so has allergy season). I know Orlando is much warmer right now, but I’d be lying if I said I’d wouldn’t rather be at Walt Disney World. And today we’re going to be visiting a memory of a newer show that is every boys dream. Today we get to watch cars zoom, fly, and blow up. Today we get to go back to Disney's Hollywood Studios and to visit Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show.

Well hello from the home of the NCAA Men’s Basketball National Champion Louisville Cardinals. Yeah, that was some game the other night wasn’t it?! Now if only the Orioles could do the same thing in Baseball. But it’s the start of a long season, so we’ll just have to wait and to see how this plays out. In the mean time, there has to be some way to fill the time. Oh yeah, let’s maybe daydream about another Walt Disney World attraction. Today we’re going back to relive a memory we once visited before. Today we’re going back to Stitch’s Great Escape in the Magic Kingdom. Our request came from a voicemail from Brandon in Texas again.

It’s another cold and wet Spring morning here in Kentucky. While I could be downhearted because spring still seems to be a week away according to the weather reports, I’m not. The Louisville Cardinals are rolling in the NCAA tournament. And even more exciting, today we’re putting the down payment on our first Disney cruise. That’s right it’s going to happen, the whole family is getting together for my dad’s birthday at the end of January. We’ve decided on a 4-day cruise on the Magic through the Caribbean. We’re so excited. If you’re going to be cruising at that time, drop me a line. I’d love to meet up with you. But let’s get to the real reason you’re here today. We’re talking about Disney parks and reliving our favorite Disney World memories. Today we’re continuing a request from Mandy. She requested both Buzz Lightyear and Toy Story Midway Mania, and today we’re going to get the second half of that request.

So I’ve got some good news. We’ve started planning a Disney trip. And this is one that I have no experience with, so we’re enlisting some help from MouseFanTravel to help us plan a Disney Cruise. Yep, that’s right, we’re looking at taking a cruise. My dad is having a milestone birthday so the whole family is interested doing a cruise together. We’re looking at next January at this point, so plans are starting to come together and I for one can’t wait. We started watching some of the videos online and the kids got very excited to “go there”, but they had no concept of what we were talking about. It will be so much fun. I’m looking forward to seeing their faces as we enjoy this together, kind of like how I’m looking forward to seeing their faces on the attraction from today’s memory.

As the winter days seem to draw on forever, I find myself drifting off to my happy place and dreaming of a trip to warm sunny Florida. I can escape this cold gray sky and feel the sun warming me as I stand on Main Street USA and listen as a smile envelopes you from the inside out. Since a Disney trip isn’t actually on the schedule yet, I will have to satisfy the escapist in me with virtual trips, such as through this podcast and A Window to the Magic.

So I was listening to WTTM #362 - AACB Music Appreciation and was taken back to my college band days. Now, we were never as good as the All American College Band, but we had some talented folks. I then realized that I never finished the other half of Christophers request. Remember in Memory 087 - Main Street, U.S.A. he said he’d love to hear a marching band too? Well today we’re going to hear one of the best in Walt Disney World. Actually, it might be the only one left in Walt Disney World since the Future Corps drum and bugle corp left years ago (go back to Memory 002 - The Future Corps to hear them again).

It’s that time of year again. Pitchers and Catchers are reporting to spring training, and this morning I’ve got my Orioles mug filled with coffee here beside me with hopes this year of getting past the Yankees this time and taking the pennant. Baseball to me is one of those wonderful escapes from the hectic pace of a regular day, where time slows down and you can relax and enjoy the sunshine and warmth for a few hours. But we all know another place that allows us to slow down and enjoy some sunshine and warmth right? Walt Disney World definitely comes to mind. But when you can’t be there, we are left with just our memories, but those can be very powerful to. Maybe today’s memory will fill you with warmth, especially if you’re still buried in 3 feet of snow.

Well things got derailed here this yesterday. I was supposed to record this podcast first thing in the morning, but that didn’t happen because I had to go to the basement for shelter because of tornado warnings in Louisville. Really? In January? Thankfully everything was fine, and it looks like most of Louisville came out untouched, but still delayed my recording time. Often when you’re lying around just waiting for the all clear, it’s nice to escape with a happy memory, and I can think of no better place to escape to that Walt Disney World.

First off I want to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas, and also a Happy New Year! I’m sorry I had to take a bit of time off. As you know from a lot of my podcasts, my anniversary is at the beginning of December. Then there’s Christmas, and to add to the whole chaos, I have just been promoted to management in the office and am taking on a large number of new responsibilities. But now that things have started to settle down, I’m glad to report that I’m back and the show will return to normal once again. So let’s get to it shall we?

I’d like to now mention all those who are watching me right now. Yes you heard right, watching. I’m trying something out and would love to hear your feedback. If you’re interested in a bit of the behind the scenes into the WDW-Memories Podcast, I’ve begun using Google+’s Hangout to broadcast while I’m recording the intro and outro’s for each episode. These videos are later available on our YouTube chanel if you don’t feel like getting up at 5:30AM Eastern US time to join me, so don’t worry. If you’d like to know when I’m recording, make sure you follow the WDW-Memories Google+ Page, and I’ll try to update scheduled events there as I’m planning.

Ok, housecleaning done, let’s get down to the real reason you’re listening. Today’s memory is a good one, and one that seems to be very popular. We’re going to return to the movie attraction Honey, I Shrunk the Audience in Epcot.
