This is the official new thread of our "Dole Whip for Bawb" Meet 'n' Greet and here are the details:

DATE: Saturday, August 30th

TIME: 2pm

PLACE: Aloha Isle (inside the Magic Kingdom -- park admission is required)

The parade is scheduled to begin at 3pm...so hopefully that allow those wanting to watch it enough time to come by and spend a few minutes with us first.

This is very casual, so please don't be shy about joining us.

Found the thread thanks for the link calypso. I will post a pic of the Bob croc once one is posted on the croc thread. He is in transit to the first person who will have him. If I am not mistaken she is in England. Looking forward to the meet. I love meeting other DISers when at WDW. I will have to bring my ds who is 4 with me as he loves :love: the dole whip float.

I think it is so great that you are organizing this 'Bob Dole Whip' meet. Wish I could be there, but our trip isn't till Oct., when I will definitely have another one for Bawb.

What did you think of my suggestion in the other thread of maybe aiming to start meeting at 1.30pm, with the idea of getting our Dole Whips and doing a group photo at (or soon after) 2pm?

This was to allow a bit more time for those folks who want to watch the parade (like me - grin) to get themselves to a good spot in plenty of time (as this day will be the first 'full' parade for two weeks following the Liberty Square bridge maintenance work).

Wow -- Bob is in England right now, how cool it that!

I had already sent a few PMs out to people inviting them at 2pm...but I plan on being there earlier (and I'm sure others will show up a few minutes prior as well) so I didn't want to change the time, but look on the bright side -- you'll be first in line for a Dole Whip. :goodvibes

Also, I definitely want to get a group photo of those that wish to participate...however, with the Africa-Hot heat it will be near impossible to get one with everyone's Dole Whip intact, so eat it...enjoy it...but whatever you do -- don't throw your cup away! ;)

I think it is so great that you are organizing this 'Bob Dole Whip' meet. Wish I could be there, but our trip isn't till Oct., when I will definitely have another one for Bawb.

I'm so sorry you can't make it...but do get something going in October as that's another very popular time to visit and I'm sure there will be more Bawb fans hoping for the opportunity to meet up.

I plan on wearing my DIS Unplugged shirt and will actually be spending most of the day at Epcot (for nephew's birthday) and plan to head over to the MK about 1:00...so if you see me, don't be shy about saying "hello" at either park. Who knows -- as the date draws closer I might even be brave enough to post some photos! :scared1:

This is our Epcot day also. I have the same plan as you. I was going to head out at about 1:00. If you see a lady with a croc and a 4yr old boy say hi. I also sport the lime green bag, croc shoes, and LGMH. I am not hard to spot:thumbsup2 .

Oh my goodness -- this was already getting buried on the 3rd page of the DIS Unplugged board. Now don't be shy...I know there will be more people visiting the last week of August. Afterall, it's obvious from our chats that we all *love* food and that is the first week of free DDP...and you can get a Dole Whip with a snack credit...hmmm, seems like there should be a million kazillion people at our meet! :teeth:

Also, cocowum posted on Justin M's thread (Disney's CMO) and invited him to the meet. He will be at WDW the last week in August and the first few days of Sept. He posts on the theme parks attractions and strategies forum. The thread is here, http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1836604 . The invite is on page 29, post number 428. How cool would that be?!!:thumbsup2

That would be great. I'm hoping there are some people that haven't committed because they aren't sure what their plans are yet but will show up if time allows.

I can't make it that weekend, Lisa/Kim, much as I'd *love* to, but there's a rather large (approaching 100) Indianapolis DIS/DIS Unplugged meet organized by ADP the same afternoon. I am wondering if there's some way to link them. :idea: Speakerphone? Pics posted from the park, at least...

I am sad to have to report that Bob the croc will not be able to attend. It seems that he took a ship to England instead of a plane and has not arrived yet. The family in England will have a neighbor check the mail for him while they are gone but will not have him to hand off to me for the meet. I still plan to attend and have one for Bawb.

Maybe I can try to make something up along those lines. I'm a bit limited with time and space as we leave (hopefully!) in just a few days and we always do carry-on. We've learned to cram our 21" suitcases to capacity and the kids always know we don't bring back any souvenirs that don't fit in their backpacks (boy has that rule saved me some dollars over the years!).

Sorry bettyann that you can not make it. Look for me in Epcot as I too will be in Epcot that day. I am leaving Epcot for the meet. If I remember correctly a few others are doing this as well.

We are hopping over from Epcot that day as well. Sorry we'll miss you bettyann.

We have a 5:50 ADR at Chefs, maybe we'll run into each other in Epcot. :goodvibes

Well...so far, so good on my flight tomorrow night! I've been sweating it out a bit but tonight's flight is still scheduled to leave (yesterday's had been cancelled). So I should be heading to the airport in just a little over 24 hrs. I'm trying to finish all my laundry, packing, etc early enough that I can do chat tomorrow night as I've missed the last two weeks. :(

My flight is still a go as of this morning. :banana:

When I did online check-in last night there was a screen that came up during the process that said they were looking for volunteers to reschedule...it was really tempting because they were offering a free r/t ticket (hello Podcast Cruise!) but since it wasn't a definite thing until we got to the airport anyway I decided to decline and see if they offer anything different once we get there. Since our's is a red eye we could go out the next morning and still get to WDW for same day check-in, the only thing it would do is cause us to cancel one ADR -- so we'll see! :thumbsup2

The meet today was awesome. We got to meet some long time listeners as well as some of the newer members of our audience.

Regina and her husband Gary attended, as did Will, Corey's sister Anna, Diana, Brian, Mariana (Varley family friend) and John and I.

We brought along some surprises....just some DIS doodads....pins, a hat, a visor, a cooler and the grand prize was an evelope with a card stating that the recipient could pick a number from the PRIZEMATRON.

The grand prize winner was WLFan and she will be picking her number on a future podcast.

The meet took place in the middle of one of the outer bands of Gustav. The rain went from heavy to torrential.

Our trip back home turned in a scene from Planes, Trains and Automobiles. We walked through heavy duty rain, boarded the resort monorail to find that there was a broken down monorail blocking the track. We were told it would take between 1/2 to 2 hours to fix.

We decided to take the shuttle launch boat to the Poly......us and everyone else fleeing the MK. We had to wait for 4 boats before we could board. It took almost 2 hours to get from the meet to our car.

That being said....it was a fun get together and I am thrilled and honored that people came out in the rain to participate.

We even got to talk via cell phone Aaron (ADP) at the Indy meet, which was very very cool.

Thanks to all who attended.

We broke out our "emergency" ponchos and made a break for it to our resort bus. (No joke, we bought the ponchos in Target and that's how they're labeled.) Even with them on, the legs of our shorts got drenched and I don't think our shoes will be dry until February. Thank goodness we have a one bedroom Villa with a washer/dryer.

Thanks everyone for coming out to honor my Dad in true DIS fashion. While driving the Khart up main street for the first time to go to this meet it was weird to say the least. I hadn't moved it since he died. So it was special to bring it to something honoring him. I also realized on main street the amount of patience my father had. I almost ran over 45 kids, 2 grandmothers and a dog LOL!!!! Honestly I was standing there while people were gathering for this meet and I felt my Dad there it was eerie.

Oh, and Merrick says hi to all! He is looking forward to seeing Miss Regina again in a couple of days! He thankfully continued behaving well, which was good, because we were nowhere close to the lockers! I don't know where we could have put him:lmao:

Oh, and in the picture, I am on the far right with the stroller with Merrick, and DH Tim is on the far left in the black polo. He evidently has had enough of me on this trip and needed to take any opportunity to get as far as away from me as possible....actually I think that may be true!!!!

I just wanted to say thanks from Indy. It was great having both of our meets connect via phone. A big thanks to you Lisa!

We just got back from our trip last night. The Dole Whip for Bawb Meet was my favorite thing we did the whole time we were there. It was so nice to come together with others who loved Bawb (those who knew him personally and those like me who just felt like we did). I was so moved that Diana and Brian came and that they brought Bob's cart out for the first time. I'm sure it was difficult for them, but I hope they know how much Bawb is loved and missed. We really enjoyed talking with them and their good friend Marianna. They are so warm and friendly just like Bob. And my DD (20 months) LOVED them too!

Thank you Kevin, John and Will for coming out in the torrential rain. It was such an honor to meet you. You are just as amazing in person as you are on the show. You really are "just being yourselves." I can't wait to "pick a number"! Sorry if I scared you when I screamed!!! :scared1: I was very excited to win! :yay: Thank you so much!

:grouphug:

We love you Bawb! :lovestruc

I'm back home now too. :(

Thank you to everyone that came to our meet. It truly was a wonderful experience. I'm in the photo over towards the right and I'm wearing my DIS Unplugged shirt. My son is on the other side of me. I think the photo turned out fairly well in spite of the torrential downpour that started while we were trying to get the group in place.

I'm so glad we had several people with their cameras as mine was unfortunately with DD, who was still in Epcot.

Cocowum and I rushed Kevin and John when they approached and hope we didn't scare them too bad (and yes...John the people-hater gave us a hug. LOL).

Thank you to Dian-er and Brian for bringing Kaht Kahm. I feel so bad you had to bring it home in such horrible weather.

Also, thanks to Aaron for the hook-up with the Indy meet -- you guys know how to throw a party!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with CorEy and Julie's families and I hope they were able to arrive from LA safely.

You are all fabulous...:hug:

Did anyone get pics of you all eating the Dole Whips? popcorn::

Unfortunately the heat along with the rain made it too difficult for all of us to eat our Dole Whips at the same time. I did try the float for the first time and really enjoyed it. Something about having the pineapple juice included made it seem not quite as sweet to me.

There were a few people in attendance that I never really got the chance to speak to...and for that I'm sorry. :(

But, there's always next time, right?

Thanks Susan. I was also very relieved to arrive home safely and on time. I was so afraid our flights would be affected by bad weather, but we had no problems at all. :thumbsup2

Hi I enjoyed the meet for dole whip for Bawb and it was so nice to put faces with people you hear and read on the boards. John and Kevin it was very nice of you to offer prizes and I hope every one was able to have a magical day even with all the rain. It was my first dole whip after all the trips to disney and I am glad I was able to have one in honor of BAWB.

Sorry I did not make it. Ds did not want to go out in the rain that day and I was not going to fight him on it. We had a nice nap in the room instead and had a dole whip for Bob later that week.

Cocowum and I just arrived home today. The meet was great! It was awesome meeting everyone. I took a lot of pictures and will post them as soon as I can edit Kevin and John out! I was given a finger wagging warning from Kevin not to post their pics! Like a good Diser, I must obey.:worship: Lots of good pics on the way soon. I was doing the picture taking which ensured I would not be in any of them. All part of my plan! Thanks to everyone for coming. It really was the highlight of our trip.:thumbsup2


.....Calypso, PM me so I can send you all of the unedited pics, talk to you soon.:)

I made it thru the meet fine but then when I posted this photo ( and looked at it on the board ) that was one of the times I also started tearing up again......
I decided to add the pic to my signature
