This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to 2013, when my wife and I were lucky enough to attend a special event inside The Great Movie Ride.
Lou Mongello, podcaster, motivational speaker, and superstar within the Disney Online Community, hosted an incredible event inside this now-extinct attraction.
The ride vehicles were removed from the attraction, and we were able to walk through the ride. It was so amazing to see these incredible scenes from a different vantage point. All of the animatronics and effects were in full operation. We enjoyed our appetizer in the Western scene, our main course in Gangster scene and our dessert in the Wizard of Oz scene! And of course, the food was delicous.
But perhaps the highlight of the entire event was getting to meet Lou Mongello and to tell him how much he and his show has meant to me.
