Autumn is a wonderful time of year that heralds in the colorful scenery and delicious aromas of the Fall holidays! Pumpkins, scarecrows and crumpled piles of fallen leaves litter neighborhoods announcing the arrival of crisp Fall weather. While the leaves at Walt Disney World may not change colors, an even greater transformation takes place at the Magic Kingdom Park.

Story

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.
