Another possibility for a mixer is to have people come together and have them split into groups of six or less but they have to have at least one person in the group that is new to the rest of the people. Then we could have a general Disney Trivia Game or a podcast related trivia gam. At the end the group with the most right answers could get a prize.

I agree with Carol. I think some sort of casual meet and mingle event would be great. A time and place that everyone could be together without an event or talk scheduled. A chance to meet everyone and chat.

Love this idea, especially where groups have to have people who haven't met before... and the trivia game.

I know I am going to regret suggesting this if others find it interesting in any way, but here goes....

A fun way to meet folks of like minds might be to take a short quiz (ahead of time online could be created) at or prior to a meet. The questions will be used to analyze how "Pete" we are or how "John" we are and so on throughout the podcast team - we'd be grouped by who we "are" and have an opportunity to meet our kindred spirits as well as perhaps have a brief interaction with our names' sake?

Just a unique twist on how to separate old friends, family members and such, so we mingle in a new and interesting way. Plus if we had some really good suggestions (or dime store psychologists!) we could create some fun character studies of the podcast team that ultimately could be posted on the site for all podcast listeners.

Discuss - and if you hate the idea - that's fine by me - I'd be off the hook!

Scott, you have an evil mind. I like that in a person. Dinner should be a lot of fun.

There are some great ideas here. I tend to be shy in person, especially in a large group. Dave and I went to the New Jersey Dis meet in July 2011, and we spent most of our time sitting at a table. Part of that was because the meet was such a success there wasn't much room to mingle.

I like Carol's idea of collecting a piece of information from each participant and then trying to figure out who goes with the information.

I love Scott's idea as well, though I wouldn't want to have to organize it.

Dave Smith Presentation
Live Podcast Recording
GKTW Fundraiser (details not complete yet but will NOT be a silent auction)

So - any ideas of what you would like to see/do? Keep in mind that if it's a good one and people like you will probably be asked to organize it
How about a dis bingo? I love bingo and it is a lot of fun..could be a fund raiser with the money for the cards going to give kids the world. Pete and john could give away some cool prizes

Another game that gets people up and moving around is Bunco. It doesn't take alot of equipment and it sits people in 2 pairs. Once a round of Bunco is completed the pairs move to different tables. It definately would mix people up so they could met other DISers. It would require a room that has tables and chairs. I am sure there are others out there who know more than me about Bunco who could add some info.

In general, Bunko is a perfect excuse to get together with people and talk & eat. So you're right, Carol, it would be a great meet, as long as we can get food in the room! Really all you need (besides tables & chairs) is a single bell of some sort (I have one!), a set of 3 dice for each table, (I have a few, but I have a feeling we'd need way more!), some paper or pads to keep score on and a whole bunch of pens or pencils. I could help organize this if you're interested, Carol! (Oh, and we'd probably need numbers for the tables, or else the rotation would be too hard with more than 3 tables!)

I'm game to work with you if this is something John thinks would be good and if he can help us secure a room and a time.

Cool! I wonder if I need to contact John, or if he'll see this here. I think I'll wait a bit & see what he says.

Question

Since we don't know any of the dates or times of any of the podcast events, can some please tell me the cancellation policy for reservations at Palo and Remy?

excursions, palo, remy and spa appointments must be cancelled online 3 days before we sail to not be charged. After that online booking is blocked and all changes have to be done on the ship and are subject to charge

I think this would have to be organized by the podcast team, because it requires cruise-line contacts, but what about having a DISUnplugged gingerbread house-making session. I know they're usually limited to first-come/first-served, but if the DIS organized it, we might get access for more people to participate and could have people sign up in advance, so they could bring their own additional decorations, if they want. Then we could have a contest for best house. Hopefully, we could do this early enough in the cruise that we could eat the gingerbread house before the end of the cruise, rather than having to leave it on board, because it won't clear customs.
