Why have you changed the title of this post and deleted the OP? I'm pretty sure you didn't cause any upset, as everyone has said they are quite happy for SM to be used for private greets. I certainly wouldn't have a problem with that, I wouldn't begrudge anyone a private meet, anywhere in Disneyland (might be slightly jealous!). We have been so incredibly lucky as to have had two private meets this year, one in Feb with Rapunzel and one in August with Piglet, Tigger and Rabbit - but these were both in City Hall.

I would be interested to see where you read this though, simply out of sheer nosiness!

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 ?

This all came from someone posting a photo of the meet and greet they got on Twitter yesterday and not everyone liking it, though like here the majority seem to have no problem.

As has been said Salon Mickey is for shareholders till midday, what happens at 2pm, the time of this meet and greet, is up to DLP and I think it's a really nice idea to organise these meet and greets for returning guests.

Disney is about making people's dreams come true, and long may that continue. I look forward to hearing about more special meet and greets and hope as many people can have them as possible.

Slightly O/T but earlier this week we saw a family being taken around the park by Jasmine and Aladdin which I thought was a fantastic treat. Jasmine actually stopped and had a little word with DS who she recognised while the family were meeting another character.

Like everyone else I certainly do not begrudge these extra perks (and I would be delighted to have one myself!) and as the shareholders only use the SM building for three hours a day it seems a good use for it. Was it specifically shareholders complaining? It seems very strange. Bring on the pixie dust!

I saw this too. I think it's great. If anything a little jealous would love to have a personal meet and greet with a character x

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.

I know who the person is and she is not my friend on FB but I've seen the photo as it's her profile pic, possibly because she's friends with several of my friends I can see her wall. You might want to mention to her that her settings are not totally private and it's not necessarily 1 of her friends who is responsible, if I can see it so can lots of others and someone obviously saw an opportunity to cause a bit of controversy, trolls everywhere

it is on facebook now but wasn't originally, it was a private pic on twitter. the fact this person knew she wasn't a shareholder, saw the pic before it was anywhere other than twitter and then knew she was upset about this post show unfortunately it is someone she classes as a friend and that is mostly what is so upsetting about it.

i love coming on here and reading about other people trips, i love when people get upgraded or given special attention, just anything to make their trip special to them. that is what disney does best. im glad to see the majority of the people on here are just like that too.
