Here are some of my pics of the DIS meet at Disneyland. Let me say that the rascals and I had such a nice time with everyone. We had already spent some time with Dan, and Lesley (Tink33) and her family on Saturday, and were ready for another enjoyable day with old and new DIS friends.


This is actually on Saturday. Dan is talking to the Boston DISmeet DISers, and we all toasted them with our lime-green margaritas. Lesley takes toasting very seriously. On the other side of her is her DH, Tim.

After a very nice 4-hour lunch with Lesley and her family, Dan, the kids, & I walked around Old Towne San Diego. This is a pic of them by the Casa de Bandini Restaurant. (I'm working on getting my kids to come out of their shells ;) )

These pictures are in addition to the great ones Dan took. Here are the links to Dan's pics:

Disneyland - Part I (

Disneyland - Part II (

There were 17 of us going from ride to ride. here is Dave, with Dan behind him, SteveH, SandiH, and their boys, Scott, & Sean (in mom's arms).

This next one shows Nick (my ds), Mary Alice (Teri's dd), and Kelly (my dd) leading the way across the "suspension bridge" on Tarzan's Treehouse. Behind them is Dave (TLK), Dan (Dan), RobinB in the red hat, and her dh, Dave. I think that's SteveH in the very back.

Here is Marc (Teri's dd) climbing up the steps in the treehouse.

In the treehouse, here are RobinB, Dave, and their darling dd, Celia. Behind them is a leopard that roars when you pull a rope down below. One of SteveH & SandiH's ds's wanted nothing to do with that leopard!

<center>http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5414.jpg </center>

Nick hangs on the rope that triggers the leopard's snarl.

<center> http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5419.jpg </center>

I asked Dan to hang on the rope, but he's so darned tall, all he had to do was stand there... lol

<center> http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5418.jpg </center>

I was encouraged by the female DISers to capture Dan in a classic shot coming from the men's room in Adventureland - tee hee. (and yes, I stood there with camera posed waiting for him... who knows what people were thinking) :p

After the Indiana Jones ride, we caught up with the mini DISers.

Sean, with his beautiful smile

Celia already wearing her Chicago Mickey

Scott wonders if he'll grow up to be a DISer like his dad (or is he trying to figure out how to get that Chicago Mickey...hmmmm)

Lesley, WM-Michelle, the back of RobinB & her dh, Dave, while they listen to Larry_Poppins

Mary Alice checks out all the DISers at the meet. (There were a lot)

Dan Murphy ~ a man who stands head and shoulders above the rest. To the left is Tyler, appropriately dressed in a lime-green shirt.

The girls Mary Alice, Kelly, and Lily

The boys Nick & Tyler

<center> http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5436.jpg </center>

The DISkids wait for the parade - they occupy themselves by playing Gameboy, except for Lily, who was always writing something everytime we stopped, and Marc, who was playing with a cool whirling toy he got from mom & dad. Kids are: Nick, Tyler, Lily, Kelly, Mary Alice, and Marc. Teri stands behind Marc.

The name of this DISer shall be withheld to protect the 'innocent" (of course, you can always check the properties of the pic :p )

DISers: Lesley, Teri, Bob, Dave, & Dan (who looks innocuous, but is dangerous with that camera)

Kelly & Lily about to be swallowed by the whale in Storybook Land Canal Boats. (They don't look too worried, though)

<center> http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5457.jpg </center>

Dan saw one of the original Dumbo flying elephants, and couldn't resist hopping in. Of course, the kids followed, and I snapped this pic. Here you see, Tyler, Lily, Dan, & Kelly.

<center> http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5473.jpg </center>

Lily, Kelly, Tyler & Nick ham it up on the flying elephant.

Dave bravely sits in the front of Casey Jr. Circus Train (I think I can I think I can I think I can). The motif on his jacket is no surprise to those of us who know him.

<center> http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/mjdm042201/Dcp_5477.jpg </center>

Casey Jr & the Storybook Land Canal Boats kind of entertwine. Here you can see the boats down below. One of our funny moments was when we passed the miniature statue of Peter Pan on the middle island, and there was a duck there. We started saying "Watch out for Monster Duck" -- heh. This time, though, Dan & Dave kinda sorta behaved, and didn't send the CM into gales of laughter (like on the Jungle Cruise at an earlier meet, where the CM was literally useless for the first part of the ride because of his laughter and Lesley had to save him by saying his lines for him).

Another DISmeet = new friends

The following are Dan's pics, but I wanted to post them again with the names:

This is a pic of us on Main Street around 9'ish. A nice man took the pic, but by the time he was ready to snap the pic, the horse-drawn carriage was verrrrry close.

Here are the DISers, left to right:
Nick-my ds, Teri, Me, with Marc-Teri's ds in front, Bob-Teri's dh, SteveH with son Scott, Larry_Poppins, Dave (TLK) with Mary Alice-Teri's dd in front, Lisa (LaWeiss or DivaofDragons) with Kelly-my dd in front, Dan in the way back, RobinB, Dave in back-Lisa's dh, Dave on the end-Robin's dh, and Celia in front in the stroller-Robin's dd. (I'm 5' even, so you can gauge everyone else's height from me... heh ;)

Here we are at the noon meet:
Teri & Bob (Teri's dh), with Marc in front, SandiH with son Sean in her arms. I think that's RobinB behind her (you can barely see Robin), and then Dan (good reference point). Next to Sandi is Steve H holding on to ds Scott, then Jeff (52plan4's dh) and 52plan4 are behind Steve. The 3 boys in front are 52plan4's ds's Michael & Matthew, with Tyler (Tink33's ds) in the lime-green shirt in the middle. Behind the boys, in the denim shirt is Larry_Poppins, & behind him is Lesley (Tink33), then Dave (TLK), and Dave (Diva of Dragon's dh), then Dave (RobinB's dh) holding Celia. Behind him is Lisa (Diva of Dragons/LaWeiss). Next to her is Rita (Disney Anna), and in front you can see Lily (Tink33's dd) shiny blonde hair), standing next to Lily is Sammy in yellow, who is in front of WM-Michelle. Behind Michelle is Jessica, Goofster57's dd and also Princess Sleeping Beauty on the boards. Next to Jessica is her mom, Shivahn (major lurker). In front of Shivahn is Mary Alice (Teri's dd), and Alyssa in pink(Goofster57's dd). Behind Alyssa is me (MaryJo on the boards), my dd Kelly (Tigger*Gal), and my ds Nick (Nick*o*)

Thanks for the great photos! I had a big smile on my face looking at them. I had such a great time at the meet, I think I'm going to take a page from Dan's book and try to organize one at WDW in July.
