The Disney Exchange is Lisa, Dave and me, Nick.
A note about this week’s show, which was recorded well before Hurricane Matthew was forming. We had planned a meet up with the 3 of us at Epcot for Friday October 7th, and we make reference to it in the show. We had to cancel due to the fact that Walt Disney World closed the parks for only the 4th time since it opened 45 years ago. Lisa and I did meet up on the 6th, and I also had the opportunity to meet Listener #12, Jennifer on the 6th!
We will be talking about the entire experience on a future show.
Now, on to our regularly scheduled program:
We have a few shout outs, notably to areas of the World who are really finding and apparently enjoying our show. Welcome and thank you!
Thank you Liv L., listener #63 for suggesting this week’s show topic, drinking around World Showcase at Epcot.
What, you may ask, does this whole “listener #63” thing mean? Well, way back when we first started, we would make jokes about having almost a dozen listeners. Fans of the show started asking to have listener numbers assigned, or would just claim a spot! This quickly outgrew the initial dozen, and, well, became a bit of an administrative mess, if I’m being honest. So we put up an official list pinned to the top of our Facebook page.
There is an extra special benefit to getting a Listener Number. You’ll be entered in our 100th Episode Giveaway! Seriously, all you need do is hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, ask for a Listener Number, and you are entered!
Oh, yea, the show! We wanted to do something different to distinguish ourselves from other shows, so we approached drinking around Epcot’s World Showcase in the spirit of friendship and sharing. We alternated pavilions, starting with Epcot, and chose which drinks and snacks we would buy each other as well as ourselves. For America we all chose our own items. Canada we left up to friends and listeners, sharing feedback from Twitter and Facebook.
