    Four years? It seems like it's been many more (and I mean that in a good way).

    Congratulations on four years of bringing us the magic. Looking forward to many more.

    Four years, eh? Great job guys. There were some great stories in today's episode. I kind of regret listening to it as I was walking into town for lunch today though... I did get a few strange looks as I'd suddenly start giggling to myself as I'm walking along ;)

    Here's to the next four years of fun and madness that we call WDWToday!

    Well done gang well done. I checked my Itunes and the first show I listened to was show number 26 the Poly Resort on 11/22/05. Keep it going.

    Congratulations on 4 years! I started listening early in 2006, and fell in love with the show immediately. I not only love the show, but also love the progression that has come about because of Twitter and Facebook. I have never met any of you personally, but you all feel like long-time friends after listening so long. Thanks for doing such an excellent job!

    Congratulations and thank you--looking forward to many
    more years!

    Episode 1200 idea: Snack, Sip, and Sick around the New Fantasyland.

    Which Princess house will Len hurl in?
    Do they have Maple Syrup at Gaston's Tavern?
    Can you get Dole Whip at Pixie Hollow?
    What new shrub will Newell be hiding in?
    Will The Little Mermaid be scarier than Dinosaur?
    How will the Princesses react to the obviously more fabulous Annette?

    These will be the questions . . . . and you will be there to answer them! :)
    Looking forward to it!

    Congratulations on reaching your 5th year. It's hard to imagine that without the last four years, dole whip, maple syrup, Trail's End, and turtles would have no particular meaning for us.

    Congratulations gentlemen (and her fabulousness) on 4 OUTSTANDING years. I've been lurking around since about episode 25. I had a wonderful time listening to this episode and laughing out loud as all of the recollections were mentioned. I must admit that I was a bit surprised though, that no one mentioned that it has only been recently that anyone has been able to mention Narcoossee's without giggling...

    By the way, I must mention that Newell DID make the first two episodes...so cut him some slack!

    Thanks to you all for all of the great times that you have given me over the last 4 years.

    Fun show! It's like watching one a "flashback" episode from sitcom. Good times. BTW -- I think I was the gal that recognized your voices standing at the elevator at Magicmeets a few years ago. Sorry if I started some sort of weird podcaster-stalking thing! ;)

    Congrats on 4 years everyone. Some great stories...I was wondering whether someone was going to bring up the The Tent Event. I'm surprised no one brought up Matt's mispronunciations.

    Here's to 4 more years!

    I will always have time for my WDW Today crew. Just don't stand in my light or my good side. . .
