Update September 2010
Currently the Video Podcast is in hiatus. I really did hate to have to “take a break” from this project but technical errors plagued my equipment and I have very little footage that I have not aired. As soon as I can get more footage from the Walt Disney Resort saved up I plan on coming back strong with brand new episodes.

Mouse Magic HD is a weekly High Definition Video Podcast that brings Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL into your home. There are two versions of the podcast, High Definition and iPod formatted to fit either your lifestyle of watching it at home or on the go.
Mouse Magic HD is created and maintained by Paul currently from Tampa, FL. In September of 2006, he purchased a Seasonal Pass and visited WDW over 20 times in the year. After listening to multiple great Disney Podcast (WDW Today, Window to the Magic, The Big D and the Meandering Mouse to mention a few) he decided there is not enough HD Video of WDW and and decided that being about 2 hours from Disney, he would start his own video podcast. Submissions and feedback are greatly appreciated.
