The latest Unofficial Guide podcast with Jim Hill is available on iTunes (MP3 here). In this episode, Jim and I are on location at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Jim recounts how Disney came up with the idea for Fort Wilderness, and the things Disney’s construction crew had to endure while carving this camp out of the ground. Jim also talks about the beginnings of the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.
Along the way you’ll hear sounds from the campground including background music, buses, maintenance and, well, people camping. We end the podcast by walking the trail from Fort Wilderness to Wilderness Lodge, and Jim talks about how the success of Fort Wilderness led to the construction of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
Upcoming episodes have already been recorded for the Wilderness Lodge and Disney World’s water parks. Jim and I will be headed to Disneyland in a few days to cover those parks, and possibly more.
Don’t forget to leave feedback on iTunes. Thanks for listening!
