(can't post due to post limit)

Hello and welcome to the boards

Re your post -You are going to have to be a bit clearer

- People can't go into SM without either being a SH and having a card or being a guest of a SH.

-Private meet with whom ? Disney staff/management/characters ?

Where did you read this as even if you can't post a photo or a live link you could give the adresse of the page/blog

Welcome to the Disneyland Paris Trip Planning & Community Board dlplover

If you have not had a look yet, DLP posting rules are here, and DIS posting guidelines can be found here.

Can't say that this bothers me too much, as long as it's a very occasional occurrence! May have been for somebody very important or special - some more details would be interesting.

I would say that was fair enough then.

I really think it depends on the circumstances. SM is closed from lunchtime anyway to SHs so I guess that they are just making use of the building when not in use to SH which is perfectly acceptable....

As for it being a private meet - they do happen from time to time for various reasons. Yes, some people may think that it is 'not fair' on others, but to me, that is part of the pixie dust of DLRP, you never quite know what is going to happen if you get lucky . That's the way I like to look at it anyway. I don't like to begrudge people things....

If it is out of normal opening hours it doesn't affect any SH.

I know you can meet characters for a fee so it brings money into the resort which is a good thing. They also do them for competition winners, seriously ill people etc etc

Doesn't bother me in the slightest

Nor me. I would feel differently if it was happening within shareholders' time between 9am - 12pm and shareholders were being refused access because of it but as it's not I can't see why it could be an issue.

I'd be very surprised if this doesn't happen all the time, after all I'm sure I've read somewhere that Salon Mickey used to be for entertaining VIPs in the early days. Look at that Prince who paid for lots of rare characters to visit - if you've got the money it's amazing what it would be possible to arrange.

dlplover, are you a shareholder? If so, does it bother you and why?

Salon Mickey is only open to shareholders until 12 noon. After that time it's used for other activities. VIP meet and greats, round table discussions, interviews and entertaining.

I've had a meeting in there with members of the conference team one afternoon when my company as organising a convention and we held a private party in the park for our delegates in the evening once the park was closed to guests.

Its nice to see it used for other activities.

To the OP, I feel awful now, you certainly didn't upset me (really sorry if you think you did). I think people were just saying they are happy for it to be used for other things, but that the SH Club times remain (for the time being until it changes in the future no doubt!) .

And yes, I was dreaming that we could get a few pennies together and have our own park with private meets all day - not likely .

The Corporate Business DLP site used to list the options/prices for hiring out different areas of the park for private use, if I ever win the lottery I promise you'll all be invited ;-)

Not sure why would anyone have a problem with SM being used outside Shareholders hours and having just read through the thread can't see anyone else upset by it either ?

the upset caused was to the person who had the meet as the person who posted this has to be one of her friends as her account where she posted the pic is private as is her Facebook account where she said how upset she was. shame on whoever posted this. a little girl had a wonderful experience there was no need to go on a public forum to tell other people and say it was wrong. its really sad when people just can't be happy for others.

Well no-one on here begrudges anyone a private meet and greet. In fact I would like to know all about it, I love sharing people's pixie dust stories(and I am nosy!)
