Welcome to my world :)

So, I've been thinking about the convention, and I thought it might be neat if we did a few 'scheduled' events, like a DIS Pin Trading event, maybe even a scrap-booking event, etc.

Any ideas, takers, volunteers?

Hi, Pete, both the ideas mentioned sound great. I'm only a pin "dabbler" so I can't help much there. And, while I have all my scrapbooking supplies, I haven't even started one yet! There were a few ideas mentioned at the convention chat the other night. I came up with the afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian. Some else mentioned a karoake night at one of the night clubs. I'm pretty sure Linda wrote down everyone's suggestions. I'm traveling solo, so I will have plenty of time to do all the convention events I want! ;) I will be glad to help. I don't have any special talent to share, but I'll do what I can. I'm really looking forward to this trip and hope the convention will become an annual event! Thanks for everything. :D

Barb-for Real!

I thought a few of us could storm (er, I mean visit) the AC one night. That place would be a riot with AC veterans! :D

Do you have any idea as to when the kickoff reception will be? Afternoon or evening?

If you need volunteers to check people in or help in hosting an event, just let me know! We are tentatively scheduled to arrive on site by 1 PM on the 28th.

This is going to be such a hoot! Pete -- get some sleep man! You'll go nuts!

I won't be able to do many of the extra-curriculars. We've never been to Epcot so the kiddos want to do that. Plus, they're already listing which things at each park they want to visit.

I still want to do a whirlwind tour of the best hotel decorations, but I think I may be the only one!

I have a few ideas...

1. Scavenger Hunts (for kids or adults)

2. Beach Party (for all)

3. Early Entry get togethers and park touring

4. Gather the most character autographs (for kids)

5. Have us bring a current picture of ourselves and see who can put the most screen names to the pictures.

I will volunteer somewhere too!

Has anyone thought of us bringing donations for Give Kids the World?

Great idea's :)

We have a Family Scavenger Hunt that will last the whole convention already in the works; it should be a lot of fun.

I'm also looking into tours (Disney's Yuletide Fantasy and Innovations in Action that features the MK utilidors)and programs at the Disney Institute for adult and youth; I'll post more on this later.

I like the idea about tea at the Grand - one of my favorites! Did you know that the DI has an English Tea program that lasts 3 hours? It teaches you how to prepare, serve, then eat -LOL a proper English Tea, sounds kind of interesting.

Tea at GF sounds great! Maybe on Friday, 11/29, so those of us traveling solo and not going to the parks that day would have someplace to meet up with other people.

If others are interested, maybe some of the WISHers from the IB would like to get together. Three letters come to mind S-P-A!

How about a meeting on Wed. night for Solo Travelers to meet up? It would be a good time to meet everyone and maybe arrange times later to do things in smaller groups with other solos. I know I want to find a few other 'shopping buddies' to go to Downtown Disney or Epcot WS shopping & lunch on Sat, 12/1.

I used to be Debbie in Mobile but the Army keeps moving us!

Pete, I posted this last week on the family board thread for ideas for kids. Some of these could also work for adults:

__________________________

How about an ice cream social?

Or a cookie decorating party?

A convention long scavenger hunt for pressed pennies!!!

A Beach Party! (beach volleyball, swimming at Stormalong Bay, water balloon fights...etc.)

A 'Make your own Disney Souvenier' Party. Have t-shirts, mouse ears and fabric paints, keychain material, photo frames....etc. Get DIS ºoº 2001 rubber stamps made up. The kids can stamp their work!

Make your own Disney Postcards! Get all your new friends to sign them.
__________________________________


- get little passport books made up (like epcots) (these could also serve as 'official' DIS Convention 2001 schedule of events) get rubber stamps made up for each of the DIS events. The attendees can get their passports stamped at each event. These little books should have some address pages in them as well so people can exchange info with friends.

- For post-convention....have an online photo contest "Capture the magic" .... prizes can be left-over convention stuff. DISers can vote on the best pictures for each category (Most touching, Most fun, 'Goofy'est....ect.)

- DIS Tea at the Grand Floridian?

- A DIS only lady bug release at the Poly?

- A character weenie/marshmallow roast at Fort Wilderness? Host a trivia game!

- For the scavenger hunt, make sure one of the items is to take a photo at Innoventions West and email the pic to the DIS family album.

- A ladies morning at the GF spa?

Heres some other ideas that you didn't ask about, but I'm throwing my 2 cents in anyways :D :

CONVENTION GOODIE BAGS:

- Brochure outlining photo contest categories and rules.

- Get GOH badges with our screen name in BIG letters and our 'real' name in small letters.

- DIS convention 2001 passports.


....I could go on and on and on (I usually do <IMG WIDTH="15" HEIGHT="15" SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif" alt="razz"> ) E-mail me if you want some ideas for the scavenger hunt AFTER you get some sleep ;) .

Pete,
It sounds like you need to set up a volunteer Platoon! I am traveling solo so I really won't have any must do's! I think Volunteering would be a good way to get to meet people. If you would like me to assist with the volunteer organization just let me know. (I do have a little experience in this area, I have been a Girl Scout voluteer for a long time and done lots of BIG events for up to 1000.)

Here's something I'd like to be able to do.....

I'm sure there are many people here who are "Park Experts". You know, those who have been a bazillion times, and absolutely LOVE MK, or EPCOT, or AK, or MGM, or more than one, or all of them.

As this will be a family trip for us, and the kiddies have never been to WDW, and DW and I have only been once, seeing "everything" is gonna be really important. We'll have a week to see stuff after the convention ends, so we should have plenty of time to relax and enjoy as much as possible at a reasonable pace. BUT.....

It would be sooooo cool to have a tour of each park with one, or more, or 300 people who are true experts on that park. :cool: To show us things through their eyes. To point out the little things we might otherwise miss. To experience some of the "key attractions" that are not so well known.

These would basically be arranged visits to each park, that might last only 2-4 hours. I know that we can get a ton of great info from this site and these boards. But I don't want to have to plan every minute of every day to see things. And I don't want to be constantly referring to a "checklist" to be sure that we've seen all of the "good stuff". I'd L-O-V-E to have someone right there with me showing us the ropes. Rides won't matter a ton, because we'll have some extra time to do that during times when there are no events planned. Plus, we'll have the aforementioned extra week.

Whaddya think? Organized DIS-Tours of the parks? Yay? Nay? Maybay?

Integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody's looking.
Courage is doing the right thing, even when it's unpopular.

How about picking a designated 'park du jour' every day? You don't have to go to that park, but most DISers will be there that day. Have a coffee club meet, all early entry folks meet at a pre-determined place prior to crashing the gate for early entry. That could be the starting point for the DIS park tour.

Since it is close to Christmas, how about a holiday ornament swap meet? Every family make/buy an ornament that represents either their home town or Disney, then have a pre-holiday meet and draw numbers for an ornament swap.

- Pleasure Island meet?

- Cirque du Soleil night? (can you get a price break on tix?)

- or nightly night-cap meets by the hotel pool that you're staying at. Everyone get together for a relaxing drink, poolside before you turn in for the night.

- how about a DIS villan dinner!

- A poolside pizza meet!

keeping in mind that people will actually want to have time to attend the parks and do Disney while they are there :D why don't you do pre and post convention things?

These are some fantastic ideas! I love, love, love (did I say love?) the Spa idea. I've always wanted to do that, but never really had anyone to go with! I'd love to go to the AC with everyone. Wouldn't that be a riot? We'll probably be asked to leave! I love the ornament swap idea. That is so cool! What a great way to meet everyone. I love the picture idea, the tour ideas, the nightly nightcap by the pool, the Villain meal, etc. I also think the DIS official park of the day is a great idea, too. These ideas are so great. How in the "World" are we going to get them all done!?!!! Pete & Linda, I arrive early on the 27th and don't leave until the 4th. I would be more than happy to help with set-up, take-down, greeting, sign-ups, or whatever. I'm coming alone, so I have the time if you need me. I'm at the YC/BC, too, if that helps. :D

Wow!! What a creative bunch!!

Taking off on the suggesting for doing something for give the kids the world and the ornament swap, what if we all brought an ornament and had a DIS christmas tree that we decorated on the openning night and all ornaments collected would be donated to help out needy families..don't know if this fits with what give the kids the world does or not. Put a little giving to others into our fun? Wouldn't the tree be beautiful? Maybe Disney could supply the tree for us to decorate?

I love the idea of tea at the GF.

Lots of suggestions for things to do with kids..what about a few adult only events? Maybe a wine tasting event or something at PI one evening?

I also like the idea of bringing a family photo..maybe have a blank canvas available and some glue so we can make a huge DIS family collage - that Pete can take back to his office when the event is over as our thanks for organizing the event.

What about a DIS convention photo of the entire group??

I'd be willing to help out with an event..don't know much about PIN trading or setting up scrap books though, but do have excellent organizational skills!

Maybe we can also ask people to bring items that can be given away as prizes for the various contests people are suggesting. Books, CD's, hats etc. are easy things to throw in a suitcase.

We are arriving on 11/28 and staying until 12/9..so it will be fun to spend the first part of our vacation participating in DIS events and meeting all the wonderful folks I've had the opportunity to chat with for almost 2 years! Thanks to all the hard working folks who are putting this event together. I'm anxious to learn when we "event only" folks will be able to make our reservations!

Have a wonderful day!

02-01-2001, 01:24 PM
I like that "park-du-jour" idea!

That way, people get the chance to swarm the park with a bunch of friends, :eek: and they can feel free to break from the pack at any time. Maybe to do a ride that they just can't pass up...or shop like crazy...or see a show...or grab some food.

WDW Memory #118: I'll never foget when we stopped in the Morocco Pavilion at EPCOT. We had a little food, then wandered the "alleys" to see what was there. We found the rug shop, looked around a bit, and next thing you know, we'd been standing there for over an hour just talking to the CM working there. But learning about his country, and making a new friend, and being in that well-themed little shop.....for that hour, we were actually IN Morocco, not at a theme park in Florida.

It's those special, quiet, unique little things that I don't want our kids to miss. Not so much that actual event, but the feeling I had, and still have to this day, about where we were. I want everyone to forget where we are, and let ourselves be consumed by the environment around us, so that we might live just for that moment, instead of stressing about the past, or worrying about the future. And I want this to happen A LOT! ;)

Sorry, I just got carried away, but after not getting that at all during our last visit to DL, it has become an obsession of mine. :rolleyes:

A slightly different take on Peggysue's idea about the ornaments. Maybe we could all bring one with us, decorate the tree and then on the last day we could raffle them off or sell them for $5. a piece or auction them off, and then give the money raised from this to Give Kids the World.

That would be a great tie-in for "give the kids the world". It would help create awareness for this charity and it would be nice to be giving to others while we are so fortunate to be on a fabulous vacation - should help us to appreciate our trip a little more! Just wanted to say good thinking! :)

Because I'm not sure what all it is. BUT, I'd like to add a twist to the DIS tree decorating. At my kids' school, the decorate their tree every year with gloves, stocking hats, mittens and warm socks. Then they wrap boy toys like cars, and girl toys like dolls, and put them under the tree as well.
<<Since it is close to Christmas, how about a holiday ornament swap meet? Every family make/buy an ornament that represents either their home town or Disney, then have a pre-holiday meet and draw numbers for an ornament swap.>>

I collect orniments and I'd love to do something like the above!! Even paying $5.00 for a "special" ornament from our WDW DIS 2001 Trip would be delightful!

Gosh oh Gosh, Pete and Linda, hope you read all this great stuff too!! As many others, I could volunteer for helping out. Not sure what, but I'm sure that I could help with something. With as many of us willing to help, we shouldn't be any one person haveing to be tied down to do it all. Know What I Mean?!

Barry, I like both of your ideas! The solo meet/ride fest and the Buzz Lightyear shooting contest! Buzz is one of my favorite rides!! And, it's not that I'm afraid to ride anything alone, it's just much more fun screaming in someone's ear! ;) Count me in! :)
Robin, LOL!! :D

Barb-for Real!

I was just thinking...how about a ride-a-thon on one of the rides, like RnR Coaster or Test Track? The last man or woman standing gets a prize!

Robin can do the Hall of Presidents ride-a-thon. :)

Hello everyone,
Now I am really getting excited about this convention. All of the suggestions for events sound great. I definitely vote for a pin trading event. A scavenger hunt sounds like a blast and so does a beach party. I also think a group trip to pleasure island would be a lot of fun. For some relaxation, the girls could head over to the Floridian for tea. Sounds great. Count me in on everything!!!

hehehehehe

Who's willing to sign up for the "It's A Small World Ride-A-Thon"? :eek: Last person with any shred of sanity remaining wins. :D

Can you imagine 5 or more consecutive rides through there? I mean, I love the ride and all but..... :rolleyes:

Integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody's looking.
Courage is doing the right thing, even when it's unpopular.

Go ahead, send a message to flydian@go.com. I dare 'ya. :D

Soooo many ideas
I love the idea of a girls afternoon out tea/spa combo maybe.
Scavenger hunt, PI night. And I would be thrilled to have someone to hypnotize/ oh I mean help me to get on some of the crazy rides. Still have not ridden TOT or either mountain.
Count me in for volunteers.

How about a slow ride tour? We can ride all the slow rides at WDW -- Spaceship Earth, the Land, Living Seas, Peter Pan's Flight, TTA, etc. This is the opposite of the thrill ride tour. It'll also give people who don't like thrill rides be a part of a ride tour.

Corn-eating contest...? Too funny! That reminds me, I was looking through one of the many trashy catalogues that are mailed to me, and noticed little doggy corn cob holders, a corn platter, and something else that escapes me for the moment. I'd be willing to donate one of these tacky gifts for a prize - any takers? ;)

Sis-boom-baaaaaa!

I wanna go back to the SwanDolphin! I wanna, I wanna, I wanna!

How about a Hall of Presidents watch-a-thon? The last one who can stay awake gets the prize! :)
