For the past year and a half, we have done a live Facebook show on Monday evenings, TMSM Weekly Live. To our delight, the show has done very well, between silly topics, guest co-hosts, giveaways… our followers have loved it. We are beyond thankful for our weekly audience, and wanted to be able to offer them more. So… here comes TMSM Live On Location! This Sunday kicks off our NEW monthly live show, in person, from Old Town in Kissimmee. The show will be MC’d by TMSM’s Scott Atwood, and features three co-hosts… Michele Atwood, Cindy Simmons, and John “Panda” Saccheri.
TMSM Live On Location will feature our panelists engaging in funny Disney conversations, plus questions from the live studio audience. We will also have free swag, plus a raffle to enter and snacks to purchase! It’s going to be a fabulous time indeed. You can come see our live show for FREE! Tickets are almost sold out, so grab them while you can at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tmsm-lol-live-on-location-tickets-72789211491.

A little summary about our cast~
Michele is the Owner/Editor of The Main Street Mouse and it’s subsidiaries and author of the books “Moving to Main Street U.S.A.” and “How Many Sleeps Till Disney?” Michele also contributes Disney news to the Joe Kelley Morning Show on 96.5 WDBO in Orlando. She and her family made the move from Michigan to the Orlando area to pursue their Disney dreams. Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others.
~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
Born and raised a California girl, Cindy spent eight years at KIIS-FM-Los Angeles (Ryan Seacrest’s station) hanging with celebrities and worked on a syndicated show live from Disneyland California. She then continued her radio career in Atlanta for 12 years where she not only performed on her show with Lionel Richie and MC Hammer but was the driving force behind introducing the country duo Big & Rich! Currently, you can find Cindy spreading JOY on the radio every day from 10AM-2PM at Z88.3 Orlando, hosting her own weekly Facebook live show, Coffee Convo Wednesday and hanging out at Walt Disney World while living on social media. Cindy is a wife and a mom of two little girls. Cindy and her family love to travel together and do crazy fun Christmas cards every year. In fact, their 2018 Mary Poppins Christmas card was even featured on Good Morning America.com! Cindy spent most of her childhood with her family at Disneyland Resort in California and as an adult, can count Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris (twice), Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii and four magical Disney cruises in her family’s Disney repertoire!
You can reach Cindy via email at email@example.com.
John “Panda” Saccheri is the creator of the BigFatPanda.com YouTube Channel.
John has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. He only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about his “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward.
Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
Host SCOTT ATWOOD
Scott Atwood is the co-owner and creator of The Main Street Mouse Disney fan community and news site. The Main Street Mouse was an idea inspired in 2008 after a trip to the “Most Magical Place on Earth” Walt Disney World. After almost 2 years of learning and planning, The Main Street Mouse was launched in a suburb of Detroit in South-Eastern Michigan. After running the site from afar, the Atwoods moved to Central Florida to be closer to the “Magic.” After a few years of working hard, it was all rewarded when the first invitation to attend a Disney Media event was received and each day, they strive to be better was there. From covering D23 to Media Cruises on the Disney Dream and Magic, the dream was coming true. After many years of doing the same reporting of the news and personal stories, it was time for The Main Street Mouse to do something different. TMSM Weekly LIVE was launched in April 2018 and has been very successful. The show also gave the Atwoods the confidence to get out and do more. From being a featured guest at different comic/pop culture conventions to moderating panels with some stars, things have definitely grown larger and larger.
If you’re not able to make the show, we will be doing a live broadcast on our Facebook page at 4pm EST so you can join in on the fun. We hope to see you on Sunday October 13th for the first of many live shows, it’s going to be a magical time for sure!
