Holy cow..what an amazing opportunity!! Is there going to be a Trip report???

Bob Gurr designed many things, like the Autopia cars. Am I correct in thinking that he designed some of the park maps as well? I could be wrong. How amazing to meet him!

Have to admit, I am a little bit jealous! <--- do I look a bit green? lol

In all seriousness, what a kind, generous thing to do. I hope you all have a wonderful magical time and soak it all in!

We are all really going to enjoy Bob. Bob and I have a friend in common and about a month ago he had arranged for us to have drinks with Bob at Napa Rose. I had previously met Bob a couple of times but never had so much one on one time as this past visit. I just have to say, wait and see. An amazing person. I had so much to ask him and he was genuinely*interested in my mundane life.*
**Bob designed the Monorail, Autopia, Astrojets, Omnimover that's the ride vehicle system used in the haunted mansion and many other attractions. Some of the first Audio-Animatronics, all the main street vehicles. Flying Saucers, that principle is now used in Luigi's flying tires in cars land, the subs, parkinglot trams and so much more. We are in for such a treat. *The Club is going to be in the shadows of Bob.*

I really cannot wait either! What an amazing opportunity to meet a Disney legend in such a special venue! I read Bob's articles on MiceChat, he has a fantastic sense of humor and the greatest stories! We are all in Club33ForMe's debt :D

What a great opportunity for everybody! Sorry I'm going to miss it the opportunity to meet the special guest! Our last visit to 33 we had Walt's table, I am crossing my fingers we get the same table next month. Those of you who have not been to Club 33 it's simply an amazing experience!
