    From AOL News:

    Disneyland Resort to 'Podcast' Launch of Its 50th Anniversary Celebration

    ANAHEIM, Calif., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning Tuesday, May 3, Disneyland Resort will "podcast" three days of celebrity-filled festivities leading to the May 5 launch of the "Happiest Celebration on Earth," an 18-month global commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Disneyland in California that will simultaneously kick-off ceremonies at Disney parks around the world.

    The innovative podcast represents the first time that any Disney theme park in the world will engage in the rapidly growing medium of podcasting. Podcasts are MP3 audio files that can be automatically downloaded to your personal computer and transferred to an iPod or other portable MP3 player.

    The podcast will incorporate a collection of exclusive celebrity- interviews, music, historic anecdotes and live event coverage that convey the excitement of the event and the story of what has made Disneyland a national treasure over the past five decades. The podcasts will include behind the scenes interviews as well as audio content detailing the debut of exciting new entertainment spectaculars and groundbreaking adventures and attractions premiering at the Disneyland Resort as part of the 50th anniversary celebration.

    Produced daily after the each day's events from Tuesday, May 3, through Thursday, May 5, this unique Internet-based show will be free and accessible to a global audience at:

    "Podcasting allows us to bring the magic of Disney and our 50th anniversary celebration to worldwide consumers through this exciting new medium," said Duncan Wardle, vice president of press and publicity, Disneyland Resort. "Through this truly cutting-edge technology we can literally bring the fun, magic and excitement of this global launch to Disney fans everywhere."

    Podcast pioneer Michael W. Geoghegan will serve as host for the series. Geoghegan was an early adopter of the emerging technology and serves as host for several popular podcast shows.

    The "Happiest Celebration on Earth" is highlighted by the premiere of exciting new entertainment spectaculars and innovative adventures and attractions at Disneyland Resort, California; Walt Disney World Resort, Florida; Tokyo Disney Resort, Japan; and Disneyland Resort Paris, France. Joining the celebration on September 12, 2005, will be Hong Kong Disneyland, Disney's 11th vacation destination and first theme park in China. The global celebration marks the largest debut of new Disney theme park attractions and entertainment ever unveiled.

    I am SO listening to that.
