RetroWDW Merchandise - To coordinate with our main topic this month, How has designed some "Water Elevator" themed items. These capture the spirit of the world famous Hydrolator portion of the attraction. These are RetroWDW original works of art, done by How. Super neat stuff that is only available for a limited time. Be sure to get your shirt, iPhone case, tote bag, pillow or coffee mug today: www.retrodisneyworld.com/supportus
Audio Rewind - Huge number of correct responses this month. Congratulations to our winner, Brian Blake, he guessed "Another Part Of Me" - one of the songs that played in Captain EO, during the exit. Brian won the Pirates of the Caribbean glass mug. If you think you know the answer to the audio rewind this month, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win the plastic mug set. Send your guesses by June 13, 2016 - All answers will also be entered into the drawing for our next BIG PRIZE, which is a huge prize pack slowly built over the course of 2016. The Prize Pot is building.....
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 and new this month; a copy of the Tomorrowland Handbook. 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 take you back to Epcot Center. It's been awhile since our last stop in Future World, so we thought it was time to discuss The Living Seas. We learn about some of the early origins and history of the sponsorship. The pre-show is discussed along with the famous Hydrolators. Throughout the show, we discuss what has changed and what has stuck around in the new version of the attraction. Finally, we look all around the exhibits and attractions after you exit your Seacab. Hope you enjoy the trip back to Seabase Alpha!
The RetroWDW Event - November 19-20, D23 will be hosting an event at Walt Disney World. Our posse is planning an event that weekend where you can interact with us, look at some vintage WDW artifacts, host a guest and even record a live podcast. This is all in the planning stages and we will be ironing out the details over the coming months. Stay tuned for more info and please contact us if you would be interested in attending.
