2018 Be Our Guest Podcast 12 Hour Live Show




The Be Our Guest Podcast 12 Hour Live Show is upon us once again! This year's festivities will take place on Saturday, July 14 from 9:00 a.m. EST to 9:00 p.m. EST.

This special show is all to benefit the amazing Give Kids The World Village in Orlando, Florida. This facility is a non-profit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions, and to enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village for as long as there is a need.

As a podcast family, in the past seven years, we have donated well over $115,000.00 to help families that can really use a little magic in their lives.  We can't wait to raise a little more and hopefully beat our very lofty goal, yet again.  And a lofty goal it is!  We are hoping that this year, we can raise $20,000!  It's going to be hard, but we know that with your help, we can do it!  Any little that you can donate helps!

Awaken Summer Event

The second day of the Awaken Summer event started with a visit to Epcot to experience some Norway fun!

Now, we didn't get to take photos behind the walls, but we did get to see just what's going on with the upcoming Anna and Elsa meet and greet! We'll be sure to share the details that we can on an upcoming podcast episode!








Frozen Ever After opens in June 2017. 

We also got to learn some more details about Soarin Around the World, which opens on June 17.





The new Soarin' Around the World is going to take you over the Matterhorn, Great Wall of China, Sydney Harbor and more! The soundtrack will be based on current soundtrack but fits the new destinations! There will also be surprise ending too!

In the evening, we got to catch a sneak preview of Rivers of Light. 


We also got to see how the Tree of Life Awakening will appear nightly. It's going to be a beautiful show.



The Tree of Life is beautiful all lit up at night.


This summer is going to be extremely exciting at the Walt Disney World Resort. Make sure to stay tuned to the podcast as we share all the great information you need to know about this Awakening of the Summer.

Kick Off of Awaken Summer Event at Walt Disney World

Today was the first day for the media events that are scheduled to take place over the next few days celebrating the Awaken Summer preview.  Here's a peek at some of the fun that occurred that is showcasing what Guests can experience this summer and beyond.

Disney's BoardWalk is the home resort for this celebration. The rooms at this resort are simply beautiful.





Mike also got to experience Cirque du Soleil La Nouba. Here, he got to see some of the new segments that were recently added to the show that takes place at Disney Springs West Side. La Nouba is simply mesmerizing.



 Dinner was at Morimoto Asia which is amazing and brings a hip atmosphere to Disney Springs. It truly is a remarkable dining experience.  





The evening ended with a little Star Wars fun at Disney's Hollywood Studios, including meeting Chewbacca and Kylo Ren at the Star Wars Launch Bay. 





To learn more about the Awakening that is occurring at Walt Disney World this summer, stay tuned, as we'll have lots more details to share both here and on an upcoming Be Our Guest Podcast episode.
