Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio.  This is YOUR show about Disney Parks and Disney History.  This is Season 7:  Episode 1 - If You Had Wings.  

On this episode of WEDWay Radio we take a look at one of the (almost) original attractions to Walt Disney World's Tomorrowland - If You Had Wings.  This is attraction is one of the storied attractions of Disney's past as it was unique to WDW, and utilized the somewhat overlooked projection attraction technology that was so apparent in late 60's - 70's and 80's attractions. Also, the song is pretty cool.

Enjoy this episode and enjoy Season 7!
