Retro Disney World Podcast

37.5 - Working the Waves

March 13, 2018

A few months back we had the privilege of talking to Bill Tyson, Pat O'Neil, and Chuck Breibart about their time at Walt Disney World specifically around the Polynesian Resort, the wave machine, and their participation in the Mike Douglas show in February 1976.

Come explore the real reason the Wave Machine failed and how it eventually materialized into what we now know as Typhoon Lagoon!  Find out how both machines worked and take a listen as Nunis attempts to make a grand entrance! Chuck then takes us on the Pirates tour out of the Polynesian as well as the watercraft rentals, Pat discusses the surfboards, cold weather and Mike Douglas on Space Mountain!
