AH! Hope!! Our resident archivist!! How nice to hear from you!! (psssst: Stick around, I may need your talents and skills if Mr. Kidds takes me up on my 1972 price comparison offer!!)

And for those of you who really want to delve into the mess that Hope offered, one note: JJewell, midway through his career here changed his name to "Walt's Frozen Head". And he is 'spot-on' in his Disney logic!!

PETER!!! Good to hear from you!! Do you miss the old days, defending Ei$ner at every turn? Or have I finally turned you to the dark side?

I must say I'm feeling pretty darned satisfied with myself for the little reunion.

Same old Pirate!! Good to see you haven't changed.

One further note for anyone following some of our old threads:
A poster named Scoop (it was something else officially, but Scoop was what he was called) - anyway, he deleted ALL of his posts!!!! So sometimes the conversation seems to be a little one sided and sometimes we are answering and asking things that aren't there anymore!! A little confusing, but the car #3 bunch are still - RIGHT ON!!!

I looked over a couple of them. And I found this one particularly fun for me. It was the one where I came up with my caste system of Disney resorts!!! Check it out!!

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=107356

I only got half way through, but it may be the one where we start comparing pricing through the years!!! Mr. Kidds!? You paying attention?

JEFF!! Mr. Head!!!

Have you read any of the old threads? WOW!! We were really verbose, weren't we? I have just spent (wasted) the better part of a Thursday afternoon reading the all-important... Ah... Well, lets call it - Stuff!!! And you know, we were right then and we are still right today!! If nothing else we were wordy!!!

I LOVE this one:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=245200

Anyway, it is nice talking to everyone again. If only AV would check in, the reunion would be complete!!!

Nice trip down the memory lane...it is weird seeing the threads without the posts from $@#%. Makes it hard to follow after he carpet bombed his account!

(But I have to admit, I have gotten to know $@#% a little better outside the realm of The Dis and have had some great conversations with him. $@#% is a nice guy to talk to in real life).

Herr Baron, I was here way back when there was just one big ugly page and just a few boards. In fact somewhere I've got stored away an original www.wdwinfo.com mug. Where oh where did I put that? Anybody else get one?

Never got a mug. But, yeah. I remember having very few boards. It got so bad that I even went to the community boards once in a while. WOW!!! Talk about a pixie-dust crew!!! I ran from that one and checked out the debate boards. There were some serious dudes over there!!! Got very heated all the time!!

I even went to RADP (oh God!! I forgot if that was the acronym or not!!) But any old timer will know what I mean. The was a guy named 'bicker' there!! I LOVED tangling with him. He was an Ei$ner supporter that made Scoop and The Pirate look like pikers!!! He was fun!!

As well you should. I miss my Disney family.

This is not the time nor the place to be rational Larry. Knock it off.

This is making me want to come back and post again. Now that I may have DW talked into another trip, hopefully in December for my 50th B-day. And the fact that DIS is no longer blocked at work.

That was a fascinating read! Thanks for pulling that out of the archives.

Ah, rec.arts.disney.parks. Those were the days....

Bicker (aka Brian) does (or did) post here, too. I haven't seen him in awhile, though....over a year, I think.

Yeah, bicker was here too, but he tended to stick to the debate board.

He had his head so far up management's rear. And not just disney's. I bet he was the kind of guy that was offended by the 99% wall street protesters while he wore his Armani suit to work and got his 100,000 bonus for losing money.


OK, that may be harsh. Still, he was a sharp pencil guy's sharp pencil guy.


I have to admit, as I said before Disney has kind of hit a quiescent state. Things aren't right, but they've stabilized and Walt's park is doing ok.

If you're only Disney parks experience is Florida though... Well, I have to wonder why you'd bother to go. Get out here to California. It ain't Walt like, but at least it feels like the 1990s here.
