Feature: Let's Move Event at Walt Disney World with First Lady Michelle Obama
Mark talks about the Let's Move event at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex featuring First Lady Michelle Obama, and interviews Disney Channel stars Debby Ryan (Suite Life on Deck, Jessie) and Roshon Fegan (Shake It Up), and choreographer Rosero McCoy (Shake It Up).
Mark started off by recapping the events he discussed on his blog the day after the event and in the Walt Disney World Update that week, talking about Radio Disney DJ Ernie D, Tony Horton, the Disney Channel stars, and Mrs. Obama. He also noted that the "Platypus Walk" dance that the kids learned and performed for Mrs. Obama was related to the "Platypus Day" event that Disney is holding this coming weekend on the Disney Channel and Disney XD.
Mark interviewed Roshon Fegan (Shake It Up), Debby Ryan (The Suite Life on Deck, Jessie), and Rosero McCoy (choreographer for Shake It Up and the "Platypus Walk"). Everyone was very nice and genuine. Everyone discussed staying healthy (to tie in with Mrs. Obama's Let's Move initiative and Disney's Art of Healthy Living), their favorite Walt Disney World attractions and Disney memories.
Mark asked for suggestions of some sort of "Disney Fit Club" type of activity that would let listeners join Mike and Mark in getting healthier. Mike had a couple of ideas, but we'd like to hear from you, as well! What would you be willing to do to get fit with us?
