Do they still have that buffet spread for breakfast?? Had all kinds of things on it from what I remember.

The event for passholders would be a fun meet. I am on call that week though.

I was there, gave the people my name and told them what I was there for, didn't see anyone and the guys at the desk didn't have anyones name or the FL residents from DisBoards info. I did have a nice chat with a lady from Nashville for about an hour though. Sorry I missed everyone, and the most exciting thing, I ALMOST ran out of gas on the way home, and there are no places to stop on the 417 or the 528! I was on fumes coasting into Titusville!

Maybe I'll meet some of you at the next one!

You know that feeling you get when you’re standing in a high place with a sudden urge to jump? I don’t have it.

Okay.... so how about a reschedule for August 21st??? Same time and place???

Sorry Kristy...I didn't know you were coming. What were you wearing? I was looking for certain people and didnt see them. I knew I should have made a sign that said Florida Dismeet and held it like I was at the airport.

in the 6 years of living in Florida, today had to be the hottest I've ever seen it. Crowds were light at Magic Kingdom and people were exposing more skin than usual to stay cool. At 5pm when I left it was 100 degrees. Here are a couple of pictures of activity behind Fantasyland. Can't believe that Disney would expose construction equipment in plain view.

I feel bad for not going now. Glad you had a nice visit with someone and made it home safely. I've done the fumes things before, actually ran out of gas pulling into the gas station. Remember looking at a guy in uniform thinking "He'll help me push it if I don't make it to the pump." But I just made it.

I like the sign idea, I second Sha!

Well I hope to be at the next meet and hope everyone is able to make it. Need to make a trip to MK to get Jacob's hair cut this week. Yes, I love to get his hair cut in the barbershop. So spoiled.

Just some observations and advice...

1. You may want to start a new thread for a new meet date since digging through this one is confusing. New dates should have a thread dedicated to that date.

2. It's hard enough to get everyone to go, and many have last minute cancellations. Try to plan it around an interesting event so that at least if everyone backs out, those that show up have something else to do (besides WDW). That makes a secondary incentive to showing up, assuming nothing urgent pops up. I've had people back out of events they paid for, so usually money is not a motivator. A special event at Disney tends to motivate, and if you want to get really special, see #4 below.

3. Short of looking like a gang, everyone should display their alien green mickey so you can get spotted as a disboard member. That way if everyone looks like a giant group of weirdos, one can keep their ears in their pocket and keep walking ===>

4. Maybe someone can get Disney to host an event for this.

Ford used to host an owner's meet for another forum I was on, if they were able to confirm I think at least 20 people to attend. It included a tour of the factory / assembly line, lunch, sneak peeks at development, etc... and people would travel across the country for that. Then there were separate activities to turn it into a 2-3 day thing.

If Disney hosted a special tour of some kind, I don't think you could hold the members back... plus it's fun because you got a special event out of it. Numbers have an advantage... It may cost Disney $1000 to host 30 people... but it almost guarantees 30 FL-AP renewals or purchases at about $10,000, and I know people question their renewals. If they got a special annual event for FL-AP holders out of it... I think it tips the scales.

... and all they have to say is theme park admission required.
