I'm getting really excited for Sunday! I'm going by myself and this will be the 1st time that I'll be attending a DIS meet. I was a little nervous about going solo, but it's just a better chance to meet everyone

You're never really alone when you're with a bunch of Disney and DIS fans!

If anyone attending Sunday's meet would be willing to fill out a brief survey before and one after...I'd appreciate it. A colleague and I are doing research on people's experiences with meeting an online "friend" for the first time in a face-to-face setting.

(The following message has been approved by Corey Martin, President of DISboards.com)

NOTE: If you participated in this study last summer - we greatly appreciate your time! However, please do not complete the survey a second time.

Hello DISboards members! Have you ever wondered what happens when people who have formed online relationships meet up offline? We are researchers from Western Illinois University who have wondered the same thing. If you are planning to meet up with someone you have met on www.disboards.com sometime in the next six months we hope that you will consider participating in our study.

Participation will occur in two phases. The first phase requires you to click on the link below and complete a short survey. Later, after you meet up with someone from the DISboards offline, we will email you a second survey. Each survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. We would greatly appreciate your help!

If you have any questions concerning this study at any time please contact us at ComResearcher@gmail.com

Please follow this link to the survey: http://OnlinetoOffline.questionpro.com

Thank you,
Dr. Bree McEwan

It was a FANTASTIC meet! Huge kudos to Dave for putting together such a wonderful event and for the outpouring of support for Give Kids the World!! We had a great time meeting folks and seeing friends, and we enjoyed getting the opportunity to meet Anthony Daniels. Much to our surprise, he even posed for photos with us. Photos to follow, but it will take a little while to get to them to edit and sort...

Can we do a memorial for Lorie? For GKTW?

Is there a way we could organize something to honor them? Maybe enough to do a memorial stone for them at GKTW?

I think a memorial stone for Lorie and Glenn sounds like a wonderful idea. Their passing is so very sad.

So glad you got these up, Dave! It was a great event and I felt lucky to be there; it was my very first DIS meet, and I'm definitely hooked!

I just listened to the podcast, and have to thank the team for all their praise. I'm glad everyone had a good time. It was cool hearing it from their perspective too. I was so focused on seeing everyone and chatting that there were things that I missed.

I didn't know that CM went around to the tables to tell people the park was open and that they could get in line for Star Tours if they wanted. That's awesome!

I also didn't know about flag flown in Afghanistan that was given to the team. That is so very cool.

Finally, one point of clarification, about the Imagineer who appeared - Diego Parras. That was definitely planned. I reached out to him a while back to see if he could just stop by our breakfast briefly and say hello to everyone. I didn't want to say anything though because we didn't know for sure he could come because his schedule was so packed with the opening of the attraction. The fact that he not only came, but stayed until nearly 11:00am chatting with everyone and answering questions exceeded all my expectations. We had our own breakfast with an Imagineer! I definitely owe him a dinner the next time I'm in town.
