On this special extended episode of #OTRonFM we celebrate our 3rd birthday with a new intro and a massive timeline of all the news that has happened in Central Florida tourism since we launched in 2014. This look back at the last three years is mixed with personal stories and inside jokes. Jake calls in to discuss a new double-decker bus tour that’s opening in Orlando then Kevin Brewer calls in to discuss his recent foodie adventures.
Ken and Ed sit down to do a quick run-through of all the latest news and rumors. Lots of talk about Disney World and what to expect over the next few years. Ken gets emotional over fireworks and Ed asks why Ripley’s has so much land they own in the tourist district.
One of OTR’s oldest and most dedicated fans stops by the studio as part of a grand non-Disney weekend she planned with Ken. News involves confirmation of two rumors from the previous week’s show and Ken gives exclusive new details on what Nintendo at UOR will look like.
Nick Ilasi (@DadonDisney) stops by the studio to talk about his Florida Plunge story, what excites him the most in the next few years at WDW, and how he began podcasting. Callers join the show to talk about Fallon and SeaWorld’s Food & Wine Fest. And during the news the guys discuss the latest rumors coming out of Disney Springs.
(On the local food truck front, there has been a major backlog for truck build-outs as one of the main food truck builders has a supposed mystery client who has rush ordered 10 highly themed food trucks. The new trucks will be ready by mid-summer)
In this food heavy episode of #OTRonFM Jim and Ed talk about their recent media review of Planet Hollywood. SeaWorld’s new Seven Seas Food and Wine Festival is reviewed by everyone, including Kevin Yee, who adds some context to this new food and wine festival in his Bigger Picture segment. We also react to the news coming out of Coronado Springs, Jim reviews Rivers of Light, and Ken goes in-depth with what’s happening regarding these rumors of a gondola transit system coming to WDW. It’s a Disney heavy episode but that’s where the news was this week!
