Today’s episode has been requested by multiple individuals. Today we take a ride through The Haunted Mansion.

I don’t remember who exactly requested this first, but I remember receiving at least 3 different emails. So what would be better to get this show going again than one of my favorite attractions. Besides being an entertaining ride, it’s always cool, the line moves well, and the Cast Members obviously love what they’re doing.

Memory 018a - Information Update

**Stereo Audio**
Time: 3:00

Hello, and welcome to a special information episode of the Walt Disney World Memories Podcast. My name is Lou, and I’ll once again be your host. Today’s show is a bit different from the norm. I feel I owe you an explanation as to why there haven’t been any shows for the past month.

Well, about a month ago, the worst thing that could possibly happen to the podcast did. I dropped my laptop and broke my hard drive to the point where it was no longer readable. Now the data was able to be retrieved, but it has cost me more than what I initially paid for the laptop. The worst part is, that hard drive was the only place I had for my Disney World Audio archives (i.e. I no longer have audio to play). I also lost all your emails with your requests and consequently my planned show schedule.

I know your probably thinking, “Lou why not just record some more audio on your next trip to Disney World?” Well the answer is simple really. My next trip probably won’t be for a couple more years. Traci and I are expecting the birth of our first child in a little less than 3 months, and since we live and work in North Carolina, a trip to Disney World is not in the plans for a while.

This leads me to an inevitable point. I have enjoyed providing this podcast for free, and hope to continue to do so. However, I will be setting up a donation link. So if anyone might wish to help me with the cost of the audio recovery, they can do so in any amount they wish. And once I reach the point of covering that cost, I will stop accepting donations, as I am not in this for the money. I simply enjoy sharing these memories with other Walt Disney World fans and am hoping that you have enjoyed what I’ve been doing enough that you might like to contribute something.

So as I wrap up this update podcast, I want to leave you with these two pieces of advice: 1. Back up everything that is valuable to you on some sort of external media, and 2. don’t walk around carrying a running laptop with the plug hanging from it.

So keep listening, and I’ll see you in a couple of days with Episode 19 of the Walt Disney World Memories Podcast.
