In this episode, we conclude our interview with former Disneyland Cast Member, former Walt Disney World College Program Cast Member, and creator of the Disneyland audio website, DisneyChris.com, Chris Lyndon. Last time, we focused mainly on Chris’s time as a Cast Member on the two coasts. This time, we finish that up and talk about his website and what makes it so incredible!
I want to keep Stories of the Magic fresh, and make it meet your interests and needs, so I’m thinking of changing it up a bit. The interviews will remain the core of the show, but do you want to hear anything else? Disney news, my opinion about any Disney-related stuff, Disney parks tips, trivia, or tidbits, or maybe a Q&A where you can ask me anything—preferably having to do with Disney? Comment on the shownotes for this episode, call the listener feedback line, email me, or even post it on the Facebook page and let me know which of these you want. Of course, if you prefer I leave things exactly like they are, tell me that, too!
In this episode Chris talks about:
- Working at the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular;
- Some behind-the-scenes info about the show and how it’s staged;

I want to hear from you, so please email me, leave a comment below, or call the Listener Feedback line at (734) 23-STORY.
If you call in, don’t worry about having to sound perfect. If you ask me to, I’ll edit out any mistakes so you sound as good as you possibly can. You’re even welcome to start your entire story over again and I’ll use the “take” you want! If you want to submit a story anonymously, for whatever reason you may have, email it to me and tell you me you wanted it shared that way. I’ll read it on the podcast, but keep your name private.
Thanks for listening!
