A Disney Podcast Prize Package
Lou is like a best friend, favorite teacher, big brother, and partner in mischief—all in one guy.
He’s a great listener to both his listeners and guests, extremely knowledgeable, down-to-earth, spontaneous, fun, always well-prepared, and completely focused on bringing a meaningful experience to everyone. I get a kick out of his self-deprecating sense of humor, and share his deep appreciation of Walt and of Disney nostalgia. I am also grateful to him for the perpetual reminders to “choose the good,” and to “sit back… relaaaaaax…and enjoy…” So thank you, Lou, for WDW Radio, my favorite podcast of all time, and for everything you do -- and thanks to your guests and family for all they contribute to this continuing adventure. Warm regards, Tom Frueh (name is pronounced “free”)
Great Disney info from someone who becomes a friend
I love this podcast. Lou covers all different aspects of Disney, from parks to movies to cruises and ABD, and of course food!
Listening to Lou is like listening to a friend talk, and if you follow him in social media he does in fact quickly become a friend. Very grateful for this in-depth touch of Disney especially as I live outside of the US and can’t get to the parks and cruises often enough.
Best part of my day!
Lou has grown my love for Disney into an obsession in the most respectful sense of the word. Every single episode is a deeply artful and informative way for me to relax, and he truly does bring the magic of Disney into my everyday life. Thank you Lou and keep it up!
