Is this the Best Lounge in Walt Disney World? - Come with me to Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort for a live dining review of a resort lounge with an extensive, surprising, and eclectic menu that makes Three Bridges a true dining destination.
I am not normally a fan of longer podcasts but this is by far one of my favorite podcast to listen to while walking in the morning. My favorite are the conversations Lou has with both current and former imagineers. There is so much that can be learned in applied no matter what you do, and I’m a pastor. I needed something like this to refocus me from the negativity, tension, and divisiveness of our politically charged culture. By the way, we are alumni of Give Kids the World and appreciate all you do for those families in one of the the most frightening times of their lives. Keep up the good work by keeping us focused on choosing the good.
The Best Part of My Week!
I’ve been listening to WDW Radio for years - when I heard the episode on Beastly Kingdom, I was hooked. As a Disney Parks history geek myself, I love that Lou (and Beci? 😂) present great info on the Parks’ pasts, as well as keep you “in the know” on what’s new and exciting now. His interviews are always interesting and professional, and his positive outlook on all things (Disney and beyond) keep me excited for every new episode. As a mom of young kids, my time alone in the car is practically my sanctuary, and I’m always glad to spend it listening to WDW Radio.
Best podcast out there.
Lou brings joy to every single show. I have been listening for years now and have loved every single episode. I am an elementary teacher living too far from Florida to be able to get to the parks very often, but Lou and all his amazing guests help bring the magic to me each week. I love how knowledgeable and engaging each episode is both for myself and my kids. I hope one day I can make it to a meet of the month or a running team event. Until then, Lou keep up the amazing work. Your passion and dedication haven’t gone unnoticed.
