WEDway Radio - Walt Disney World and Disneyland Examined with some Disney History
Nate Parrish discusses the history of Disney theme parks and the Walt Disney Co. In examining we look at influences that shaped the company including projects and eras. Take a look at attractions and themed lands including the architectural styles and inspiration behind many of the decisions that the Walt Disney Co has made over the years.

This weeks WEDWay Radio is a sequel to a previous episode entitled Better on a Boat that we created in the Spring of 2011, where we discussed first time touring at Disneyland with a child.  This episode is similar in nature, but switches coasts to Walt Disney World to challenge the idea that Epcot is not for kids.

Matt takes us on a tour around Epcot discussing a recent trip with his 6 month old son and how they enjoyed the different pavilions in Future World and World Showcase.

Some of the highlights:

 - The searing heat of Future World

 - The worst World Showcase Pavilion for kids

 - The awesomeness of Turtle Talk with Crush and Living with the Land

Side Note: Nate does not look like Grimace

Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio, a show about Disney history, Disney Parks and touring.  This is episode 120 - Liberty by Disney

On this episode we celebrate American Independence Day by looking at one of Disney's most patriotic films, Johnny Tremain and its legacy in the Disney parks.

Johnny Tremain is based on the 1943 Newberry award winning novel by Esther Forbes and was adapted for the screen by Disney in 1957.  The following year Liberty Street was to open at Disneyland, but sadly never came to be.  However, when the Magic Kingdom was built in 1971 it was built with Liberty Square and The Liberty Tree from the film.

Enjoy this show because it was a lot of fun to create.
