Ep 29.35 - Planning for EPCOT 35

May 10, 2017

joomplu:1214Welcome to a special edition of the RetroWDW Podcast, Episode 29.35 "Planning for EPCOT35"!

In November 2016 the RetroWDW podcast held a special event at WDW, specifically our Lake and Lagoon Tour was centered around DestinationD. We had limited spots and always wanted to do something that more of our listeners could attend. With the recent announcements and ticket sales of official EPCOT35 events we decided to begin the research to plan our own event to coincide with the anniversary. We're working on putting together a special character meet and greet, a cocktail/dessert illuminations party and a special attraction ride to end the evening of September 30th, 2017

In this short episode we discuss the details of our plans and ask that if you are interested in attending to please fill out the survey at www.retrowdw.com/epcot35  so we can better gauge the party size and interest levels. If you have an suggestions, ideas or thoughts about the event please email us at podcast@retrodisneyworld.com

We appreciate your support and hope you have been enjoying each episode and we hope to see this September!

Our resident EPCOT Center experts tell us all about meeting Figment & The Dreamfinder; so cool! Remember the old Skyway at The Magic Kingdom? We tell you about the old stations and where you can look for them now. Have you ever been curious about retro wait times? We discuss how long it took to get on famous attractions back in the early years of Disney World. Reese wrote us this month and asked about the how The Land changed... You can learn all about this in our main topic. For questions, comments and concerns, please write us - podcast@retrowdw.com

Audio Rewind - Last month, the audio rewind song was super hard! We go through some of the guesses, but if you guessed the strollers at The Magic Kingdom going over the bridge, you were correct! The winner is Ali Jurgens, winning a set of RetroWDW Pins and some other mystery pieces. Great job Ali! If you think you know the answer to this months audio rewind puzzler, email us! podcast@retrowdw.com - This month the winner will get a pack of RetroWDW Pins and a Nunis Wave Machine Shirt!  All entries due 5/22/2017 and a random winner will be selected.

Main Topic - This month, we discuss the EPCOT Center attraction, The Land. Brian takes us through the history of this original attraction and how it came to be.

Kraft took over as sponsor, Claude & Rolly took over and gained this new sponsor. The attraction has changed over the years and even had a live narrator up until a few years back. Follow us back through the history, wall carpet and vintage music as we take you back to the early years of The Land. Enjoy!

Send your guesses by October 17, 2016 - All answers will also be entered into the drawing for our next BIG PRIZE, which is a huge prize pot slowly built over the course of 2016.

Prize Pot Items - As you may have heard, our year end prize this year will include a different prize from every month. So far, we have an Orange Bird Yo-Yo from January, a brochure from The World of Motion given away in February, the March prize is a Golf Resort Mickey head logo golf bag tag, an Epcot Center salt and pepper shaker set, a Disney Glass Candy Dish, Tomorrowland Handbook, 1984 Disney News Magazine, The Walt Disney World Explorer CD Rom, expired Discovery Island Tickets, a Frontierland Viewmaster Slide and new this month........the WDW Tencenial Coin and....a WDW Pocket Protector! The pot will continue to grow each month with new and exciting prizes! To win the prize pot in December, just answer any audio rewind question each month for one entry.

Main Topic - For this month, we discuss all things Carousel of Progress. We take you back to the General Electric days and start you off with a bit of history. The journey starts right after Disneyland opens and follows us up to the version we all see today. You are really going to enjoy this main topic filled with sound clips, effects and tons of snipets to remind you of this attraction has changed over the years. We even get our fans in on the show, playing your version of the theme song from your call ins. One of the most classic attractions in Disney Parks history is our main topic this month; enjoy the show!
