Twice I have someone stop me and asked if I was on the Dis. The first time I had on my Dis tshirt and the second time I had a lime green button with DIS written on it (Meriwether made it for me).

It was nice having a chat with fellow dis members.

How do you spot your fellow DIS, especially knowing that they will be there around the same time you are? Or people nowadays don't care about meeting other DIS members?
Yes, I remember wearing the lime green clothing or having something on you that was lime green. The LGMHs came later when someone discovered them at Home Depot. I know I got some one year, but no one ever came up to me. I also remember being on the AOL Disney boards before the Disboards, and I think we wore purple back then if I remember correctly. I tied a purple ribbon to my backpack or waist pack but that was back in the '90s.

Sorry that happended to you. I have had many nice DISers say hi to me because of my LGMH. We talked briefly and enjoyed it. Not sure why someone would bother having a LGMH, if they didn't want to say hi.

This year I plan to add the Dis Boards logo to my Mickey head and I'll pin one on my hat with all my other Disney pins.
Good idea! I'll make a homemade lime green mickey head and I will put "DIS" on it and have my screen name "*Fantasia*" on it as well.. I will have it on my backpack and I will also have it around my side belt loop and let it dangle a little.. so they can see it from the back and the front. Hopefully someone from the DIS will come up to me so we can introduce ourselves.

I'll be there next week, and I will have a LGMH on my backpack. It will be just me and the kids, and I would love to say have a chat with any fellow Dis members!

I had a somewhat similar experience. I went solo in 2009 for the Tower of Terror 13K. Some nice people on the Events/Competition subforum of the WISH forum told me to say Hi and run with them if I wanted. They said just talk with anyone in the WISH shirts. Well, the WISHers were in a circle and grouped, and I tried talking to several. The ones I talked to before the race and the one during the race were rather rude. One was rather nasty, as in how dare you talk to me, complete stranger! So I never tried to talk to WISHers again. Just run solo.

Oh.. that's terrible. I guess they only recognize their own "cliques".
I'll make sure to avoid them. Oh.. I think I will put on my lime green mickey head-- "I'm friendly!" This way they know that I am not a b!%$h to talk to.

I always wear about 6 of those Home Depot Mickey Heads at the same time. I put them all over my fanny pack, dangled with little key chains.
On an average 7 days in the parks, I run into about 2 DIS'ers per vacation.

Of course, I ran into a WHOLE LOT more DIS'ers when we had the party over at Toy Story Mania Ride !!!



What a wonderful time that was !!!!

I swear I was drunk with JOY !!!

Its kind of funny, Fantasia, DR and I were just talking about how much things have changed at WDW and on the boards and we started remembering some of the old group (you, PeterPirate, WaltsFrozenHead, Landbaron, Chad, Greg, Planogirl, OnWithTheShow). We go through phases now of reading/posting with months between visits. I saw PeterPirate on the boards no too long ago and Planogirl is still active, but we've lost touch with most of the others. Seriously though - we had just mentioned you and I saw you on here about a week later.

I'll usually get more active here when we're getting close to a trip of after we get back, but we don't do meets or anything. We don't signal ourselves at all and don't seek out anyone else. We've met a couple of folks through the Star Wars Weekends threads, but its more for Star Wars.

As for the DIS, this old grey mare ain't what she used to be

We had our LGMH on our back pack last year and nobody said hi nor did we notice any others around. It was during FD so I'm sure there were lots of DISers there! LOL

I agree with some of the pp, if you don't want anyone to speak to you, then don't advertise you are on here. To me, that is the reason to put your LGMH in sight, to be noticed. I would be glad to chat to anyone who introduced themselves and I would also presume that one wanted me to say hi if I saw theirs.

Oh well, people are weird.

Hi Melissa! I just started to post again because I am planning a trip next year. But.. I may be able to squeeze a quick budget trip this August. It has been a long time since I was active here.. you know a daily DISer. Since I didn't have any trip planned since 2005, I kind of totally abandoned the DIS. It was too painful to see folks taking their trips while I can't. So I stayed away for long time. But... I'm back!!

Things sure has changed over the years.. I'm so glad that the old timers like you and me are still here! (occasionally when we have trips coming)
