The Walt Disney World Resort is an amazing place to visit during the holidays! During Christmastime and the Halloween season, there is so much to see and do - special ticketed parties, creative decorations, seasonal foods and lots of other exciting festivities. Despite the fact that these two holidays tend to receive top billing, Walt Disney World celebrates a slew of other holidays including New Years, Easter, and most timely, Independence Day! ...

The only ones I can ever find even when trying to make the ADR 180 days out are for late at night, like 9:45PM. What's up with that? I never have such difficulty anywher...

On May 23, Lou Mongello reported LIVE from Via Napoli Ristorante Pizzeria in Epcot's World Showcase, to share in the serving of their one millionth pizza. Although Looking for Magic wishes they could have been with Lou for the culinary celebration, we will unabashedly admit that we have tasted our fair share of Carciofi and Piccante pizzas at the ristorante to generously assist with the one millionth tally. When Via Napoli opened its doors in 20...

Walt Disney World is filled to the brim with cutting edge experiences, the kind of amusements that make the resort such an attractive place to revisit. However, any fan of Disney Parks can tell you that from time to time something remains in a park past its prime until it is so dated, and generally underwhelming, that you wonder if management just forgot it was there. Such classic examples would include The Bakery Tour in Disney's California Adve...

When I was 16 months old I saw my first movie in the theater, Finding Nemo. Since then it has always been a part of my life. This weekend I got to see Disney Pixar's newest animated feature, Finding Dory! I think it is fantastic sequel to Finding Nemo, despite my fear that it wouldn't be! Finding Dory is filled with many great characters, some new and some old, and retains the same magical, nostalgic feel from the original. Today, I am going to i...

Disney expert, host, author, speaker, and entrepreneur. Host of WDW Radio - Your Walt Disney World Information Station
Introduction
Hi! I'm Lou Mongello. I am a Walt Disney World author, expert, host, speaker and entrepreneur. I am the host/producer of WDW Radio (http://WDWRadio.com), which has been named Best Travel Podcast for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, the author of the Walt Disney World Trivia Books, "102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World," and the author/narrator of Audio Tours of Walt Disney World. I am also the founder of the Dream Team Project (http://DreamTeamProject.org), which sends children with life-threatening illnesses to Disney World. 

I used to be lawyer and owner of an IT consulting company in New Jersey, before leaving them behind to pursue my passion and share it with others. I am now an internationally-recognized expert on Disney, and a featured speaker who shares with businesses, associations and schools the magic of Disney and/or the power of social media. 

I also like to bring some “Disney magic” into schools by bringing Disney into the classroom with engaging, thought-provoking, and entertaining assembly programs, and am a youth motivational speaker who presents on a variety of topics designed show students how to create an exciting future by following their dreams and passions.
