To kick it off with a bang, we’ve invited the morning show teams to join us and broadcast their shows live each morning — from special temporary studios we’ve created at Waldorf Astoria Orlando!

Watch for photos this week that we will post here, and on our Facebook page.

Here is a list of the stations participating:
