Discrepancy

I love the joy and sentiment of Lou Mongello as he talks about the parks. But I recently have had not so joyful experiences at WDW and DLR. That left me wishing the parks were like the way Lou describes them and how they used to be, sadly they seem to have changed for the worse in many ways.

Great Disney Podcast

WDW Radio focuses on in-depth reviews and round table discussions about WDW’s many parks, attractions, restaurants, and hotels. The episodes are timeless. So having access to Lou’s extensive archive of more than 500 episodes means there always something to listen to.

Much love to Lou and his “crou”

This is my favorite podcast for all things Disney. Lou’s positivity always puts a smile on my face.

I could go on, but I don’t want to take up too much time. Thank you Lou and your “crou” for the lovely podcasts. Have a good one!

PS: Thank you for recycling some of your classic podcasts for those of us that found your podcast more recently.
