Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural sound, as we enjoy another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join my family as we close out our day in Walt Disney World stopping for one final ride on the long-promised Test Track as we stroll from World Showcase, through Futureworld, under Spaceship Earth, and out the Main Gate at Epcot.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
The weather is changing. Here in Kentucky, we’re beginning that wobbly transition from summer to autumn, where one day it hits 90 and the next it’s down to 70, and then back. I love it when that cool air kicks in and the humidity drops. Soon the leaves will begin changing colors, but then we’ll be missing those warm summer days, daydreaming of spending time by a pool or maybe wandering around a Disney Park. Ah, so let’s go daydream together with another memory from Walt Disney World.
In today’s memory, we will continue our memory from a warm summer day in September 2016. As you’ll remember we began this day in the Magic Kingdom with my extended family and parkhopped over to Epcot in the mid-afternoon. After Illuminations, we said goodbye to the family, and for our Extra Magic Hours in Epcot, we thought we’d start by riding the new Frozen Ever After attraction in the Norway Pavilion. We’ll join the memory as we’ve just exited the pavilion onto the World Showcase promenade, and are beginning the long walk towards the front of the park. We know it’s late, and today has been the first time we have visited a Disney Park without a stroller, and the kids are very tired. You’ll hear us pass by Mexico, and then make the right across the bridge and head towards the old Oddessey Restaurant building. As we approach, you’ll hear the cars zooming around the Test Track building, telling you we are getting closer. As the music comes begins to build, we are getting close, and we can see the posted 30-minute wait time. Now it won’t actually be that long, but we know this has been the one attraction the kids have been asking for since the morning. We get in line and quickly make our way through the queue line, and in no time we’ll be designing our cars in the test lab. As we climb in the car, I hop into the front between the kids and Traci is in the back by herself, and we’re off. Once the ride is over, the park is closed and it’s time to get to bed at the Port Orleans Riverside.
As we were getting into line, you could hear the kids talking about how they love designing their cars, and that’s their favorite part. I mean, they love the ride too but getting to design them and see it competing with us, that seems to somehow connect them to the ride.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now join my family on our 2 day trip to Walt Disney World, brought to you in immersive binaural sound, as we fulfill our kid’s wish and ride their favorite ride in Walt Disney World.
