Our featured topic this week was a discussion of last week's press event at Walt Disney World. Mark gave a summary of everything happened during the event. We also played three interviews that Mark did: one with Al Weiss, President of Worldwide Operations for Walt Disney Parks & Resorts,; one with Brad Rex, WDW Vice President for Epcot; and one with the biggest Disney celebrities available at the event. For a peek at some of the stuff that Mark talked about, here are some photos:

This week's Magical Moment came from Ray Kuykendall of the Bare Necessities from the Let's Talk About Disney podcast, who experienced magic when his wife Cindy caught the Disney bug on her first visit to Walt Disney World.
