Disneyland Edition: Farewell Wayne!

Bummed to hear while listening to the DL edition of News, Housekeeping, etc. today that Wayne is leaving the show. Wayne: I really, really enjoyed your segments! You are a great storyteller when it comes to sharing the details of Disneyland! I can certainly understand & respect your decision to step away from the podcast in order to keep a good balance to your life...but that doesn't mean you won't be missed!!! Hope you'll make a guest appearance every now & then!

I am sorry to hear this as well. Wayne has a great "radio voice" and does a wonderful job adding his knowledge to the show.

Sad farewell to Wayne.

I certainly understand the need to deal with "real life" and hope for all the best.

Oh no! I haven't heard the latest one yet. So sad to hear this.

You have great "radio voice" and a way of talking that makes all of your informative segments that much more interesting. I hope you'll consider doing a few topics for the show from time to time. Take care!

Thanks everyone! It really means a lot to know that you care and enjoyed what I was able to do.

You must understand that this was a tough decision, and one I really didn't want to make. We all hit these points in our lives from time to time.

But as I said, I'm not really going away. I hope to continue blogging as I can and maybe do an occasional guest spot on the Disneyland podcast (if they'll let me ). In the meantime, I'll still be a regular at the Parks and looking for that special someone.

I hope you see you all again real soon!
