Who remembers the "Tangled" Rapunzel Tower at the 2011 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival?  We happened to be at the Walt Disney World Resort on the morning after they installed the tower.  In true Walt Disney World style, one day the tower wasn't there and the next day, there it was, artfully nestled into the landscape as if it had been there forever.  Located in World Showcase between the Germany and Italy pavilions, the tower had windows that open...

Like most visitors to Walt Disney World, I love choosing my vacation souvenirs.  I even have a method for how I make my selections.  During the early days of the trip, I take some time to scope out the options at all four parks, Downtown Disney and more than a few resorts.  I typically do not purchase anything until I feel I have perused the places offering the sort of items I prefer.  After having done so, it is not uncommon for me to spend the ...

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.
