I am currently trying to put together a DIS meet in Epcot on Saturday June 23rd. So far, it's pretty much up in the air exactly where but here's what I am thinking...

Meeting sometime around 7:30 or 8 pm in World Showcase for a drink of choice (wine, beer, smoothie, soda....). Or we can ride Maelstrom together.

British Invasion plays at 8 pm
MoRockin plays at 8:20 pm

Or we can skip around the park while holding hands...

Let me know your ideas and if you want to join on in or for any suggestions.

This page will be updated as plans become more firm.


Great idea! Count me in for the Maelstrom/drink part....that would be right after dinner...perfect! :banana:

I was hoping for the Maelstrom ride but some people think it's boring. I think it's fun. We rode it 4 times in a row one evening right before Illuminations (we skip the film at the end).

Now, we have to get Rags on Rocks over to this thread to join in...

Excellent... It's great to get more people for a meet. I thought the skipping while holding hands may spark an interest...:lmao: If everyone is up for it, maybe a drink in Norway and riding Maelstrom may be fun... We could get a CM to take our picture in the Viking Ship.

Jennz - please visit our DISers Stalking DISers thread. You will have a lot of fun over there!!! The link is in my siggie!

I'd love to come, maybe I can find a way, I love locally but my fiance' goes to work at 10pm and we live about 1 hour away from EPCOT, so this would be tight. Maybe I could have him take the night off, would love to meet some fellow DISers. And I love Norway!

Plus I would love to talk to you about Cape Canaveral as we vacationed there last October and are talking about going back next year. A friend of ours owns a condo on the beach!

This would be a great meet if we can get everyone to show up! Picture opportunity for sure!!!! :thumbsup2

This is still somewhat vague but as our date approaches we will firm up exactly where
Remember we can always "tweak" our times to suit everyone who wants to join in the fun.


We are planning on going to mass that evening and Bob's brother & sister-in-law may drive down from Jacksonville for dinner... but ..... if they don't come.....we'll come! :wizard:

Depending on the weather and my mood, I'll either opt for a glass (or should I say plastic cup) of wine or some sort of smoothie.

I'm really getting excited about this meet!

It's BOB's family, not mine! :lmao: (MY sister isn't arriving until Monday! LOL)
Bob's DB and DSIL live in Jacksonville. Last year they drove down and met us for dinner our last night. As nice as it was to see them, it took away from the whole day - since we weren't sure "exactly" what time they would arrive. oh well. Considering we rarely spend time with HIS family and my BIG ITALIAN FAMILY is ALWAYS around... I guess I have to put up with it. :goodvibes

Mass at the shrine is 6pm... I'm going to see if there is a closer Catholic church with an earlier mass on Saturday evening.

Bob will join Rob & Wynn for that beer - I will gladly have a glass of wine - or isn't Mexico right near there? Margarita's anyone?! :drinking1

I'll keep you posted on our plans...

I personally am taking my vacation from church as well. I am the preschool Sunday school teacher (for the past 6 years!), on the church council, the Education committee, and chair of the 30th Anniversary planning committee. I am churched out!! I can hardly wait to sleep late on a Sunday morning! :cloud9:

Kari - sounds a bit like my resume, too. :goodvibes I am the librarian for the parish school (where Dana has attended the past 9 years), I am a cantor (leader of song) every week, assistant direct the children's choir, Bob is a Eucharistic Minister, until recently we were "team couples" for Pre-Cana (marriage preparation classes), Bob's served on the strategic planning committee and the finance committee, and I was the Education Council secretary for four years. ;) You might say we are "involved".. :goodvibes

DM- we always find the local Catholic church if we are away on the weekend. We've been to the neatest churches all over. It's part of the vacation experience for us.
One of my favorite churches is up near Rocking Horse Ranch in the beginning of the Catskills... tiny little place... the priest pulled me aside as we were leaving and said, "You! Where did you come from??!! I heard you singing!!" It was very cute.
Another fun experience was in Bermuda - we took a taxi to Saturday evening mass... then couldn't find one to get us back! I was about to call the resort concierge to have him send us one, when the priest noticed us and had a parishioner drive us back!! Very nice woman - we had a great conversation as she told us her experiences coming from Canada and living in Bermuda!

Just more things to add to our vacation memories! ;)

Bad news - I can't make it. DD's friend who will be in FL w/us is getting a 10 day ticket, our first day in the park will be Saturday June 9th...since the tickets are good for 14 days I thought we'd be okay but I didn't realize day 1 was the first day of use. :headache: I was just going out 14 days to Saturday June 23rd. :sad2:

Have fun!!

I know it's not that big but that's all relative when people are trying to find complete strangers! Beside the lake sounds like a good place. Now, is there a clear spot by the lake? I know Mexico doesn't have one so I'm just making sure.

I think I will be sipping on the frozen margaritas from Mexico if I don't meet up with Kari first. Kari - that vodka lemonade in France. Is that the place where you can get the orange one too? That sounds even better to me!

Now Kari, why don't you post the pic of your family in MGM - only bigger in size than in your siggie! Anyone else want to post pictures, please do so!

karibritt01
06-08-2007, 10:55 AM
I checked my park map from last year, and it looks like the water front is empty. Yes... France has the orange drinks, too. I'm thinking the lemonade for the walk... and the orange for the meet! :rotfl: Just kidding... I would be crawling out of the park! I hardly drink because I am trying to hard to lose weight. Then after a day in the parks, with the heat and dehydration... 2 big drinks and you would have to scrape me off the sidewalk! Of course... if they are small, or mostly juice...

I'll add that pic in a few minutes. Have to snap a new one and upload...

1) Is this really the ONLY time they can drive down to visit you?

2) Did they realize that I had to fly with USAir in a sucky time schedule just so I could meet you? :lmao: Plus I am flying all the way from NY!

I have to look into this "vodka drink" thing... lol ;) although, I do love my champagne. (speaking of which - at Dana's graduation dinner, I felt the mother of the graduate deserved a glass of champagne... and ended having two as the evening progressed... I was a little shocked when I saw how much those 2 glasses of champagne cost!! :rolleyes: It DID taste good, though!)
