Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural / 3D / spatial sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join us as we relive when my family finally got to experience the brand new family Epcot attraction.
I wanted to begin today by saying thank you to all of you in the many countries around the world who are listening and leaving feedback on your podcast services. I just found out this week that Apple has been collecting those in other areas, and I just now found them. Like this 5-star review from JohnHails who said, “I discovered this podcast about a year ago and have been addicted to it ever since. Each episode takes you on a little journey into an attraction at Walt Disney World and can bring back memories of my own. Lou, is a fantastic host and invites you to listen in on his experiences with his family at WDW. I look forward to each episode and try to listen to it as soon as it’s released. Keep up the great work Lou. Hopefully one day I can get myself back to WDW and make some more memories of my own, with my family. Thank you!!!”. Thank you so much for the feedback, and I’m so excited I found it. So just know for all of you who have been leaving me those reviews, I’ve been reading through them all, and I thank you.
Second, I wanted to also let you all know that I’ve been working on making it easier for you to support the show, and I’m excited to announce that those of you listening on Spotify now have an easy way to become recurring supporters. You will now see the supporter content I’ve been releasing in the feed, and if you click on one of them, Spotify will let you know how you can begin supporting from it’s app too. For those of you listening on Apple, I’m working on the same easy support options for you too. And of course, there’s still the Patreon supporter option for recurring donations. And as always, for as little as $1 a month, I’ve been sending those recurring supporters early access to new episodes, which also don’t have any ads in them as my thank you to you for helping me spread that Walt Disney World magic.
But enough of all that housekeeping, let’s get to content we’ve been waiting for “all day”. It’s finally time for us to experience the then brand new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
Today, we are continuing our adventures in Epcot on a beautiful Sunday in December 2021. The sun has set. The lights are illuminating the pavilions and countries. And we now have a lovely, magical, Florida winter evening.
If you remember from Memory 281, we have made our way towards the back of the park and entered World Showcase on the right by the Canada Pavilion, where we caught a showing of the updated Canada Far and Wide. As we exited the movie we are getting close to our boarding group being called so we made our way through the UK pavilion, over the bridge, and into the expanded France Pavilion. We’re still searching for a sweet treat, and decided on the new creperie, but unfortunately the line was too long for us, because as we’re standing in line our boarding group is next to be called. So we’ll exit the line for our crepes, and get in line Remy. The queue they’re using now is the side that the Disney Genie users will use, so it’s not as well themed. There are large portions where you’re just in a wall-papered hall, but finally you round the corner and you’re on the roof with a view of Gusteau who will suddenly come to life and invite you to find out what Remy is cooking inside. In a few minutes, we’re boarding our ride vehicle, and excitedly whisked off on our adventure with Remy and all of his family.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I would suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, let’s join my family as we relive our very first adventure being the size of a rat in Paris.
