I'm getting itchy feet reading about this meetup! I think flights are a bit expensive from the UK at the minute, but you never know, last minute might turn something up!!


Oh, and I'm a profile hider! But I've got an excuse!! I'm a cop so I don't want to hear from any 'clients'.

Wish I could make the Meet and Greet but 10/13 is my birthday. I'm going to Kouzzina with my mom and just sent out an invite for my family to join up with us at Jellyrolls. Money is tight for everyone so I'm not sure who will actually make it.

Would either of you like me to put you on the "Maybe" list so you can get the contact info 'just in case'?

I'd hate for someone to be forgotten and end up not getting the mass PM with the meet details and contact info.
I will be sending out info about this time next week to everyone who is coming or maybe coming! It's getting close now...

I think I remember Ahoff mentioning he'll also be down this coming weekend for the race.
Your text actually got me back here. Either I'm on DIS alot or none at all. Feast or Famine, it seems.

This weekend, besides, Epcot's birthday, happens to be my best friend's birthday as well (we have been friends for 25 years), so she comes before racing or cheering on runners.

I'm also very excited to be doing 2 D23 events, Wild Africa Trek and the new Epcot Segway tour. Outside of Disney, doing a safari ranch tour! yeeee-ahhhh!

And see, that makes perfect sense to "hide" your profile then. Of course, I know you though.

And ya know, it would be nice if you just turned up like that for the meetup.

2 beers I am looking forward to trying

Enjoy your trip and the Oct 13th Dis meet & greet

Hey, I am excited to be down for friday too! Is anyone doing anything in the later part of the evening? I need to decide what to do with myself!

I decided to go cheap on my room. It allowed me to be budget friendly and to knock off a resort (my goal is to eventually have stayed at all the resorts), so I am staying at All Star Sports! I think you knew I am going Oct 4-9 with DD8, then turning around and heading back for the meet, so I wanted to save money, that way I have more for food and wine!

I am getting so excited, 1 week and the I have my back to back trips!!!

I'm a long shot 'maybe' at this stage. Very tempted!

OK, so I got to thinking on Friday. After the drinks I know a few are off to MNSSHP, for those that aren't, I am thinking of dinner. I am going to try to book a Ressie, I want to go somewhere I don't get to go when I am with DD, who is in?????

Oh, and I have a TIW card for the discount...

I've had the Schoffer Grapefruit before (don't know why Disney Parks Blog is saying only available in the US at WDW) and it's interesting. Tasted much more like a grapefruit malt beverage than beer ... think Mike's Hard Grapefruit. I'm not saying it was terrible, but it didn't remind me of beer much.

I'm looking forward to the Sam Adams Chocolate Bock. I haven't had any in few years. Pretty unique in that it actually has a strong cocoa flavor, not just choc malts. The downside is that usually after one pint, the cocoa sweetness does get a bit cloying.

Also, hopefully someone on the DIS will post on this by the end of weekend ... Is the Unibroue back at the Canadian beer cart for the F&W? I need my Ephemere fix while hitting the kiosks

I've got the Swolphin Classic for dinner on Friday. If folks are interested there'll probably be tickets still available on the day of event. They're around $80, but that includes all you can eat and drink of high end food and liquor. You might end up spending just as much after all the courses at a decent WDW restaurant. Just an option

DS and I stayed at PoP last year and loved it. My bucket list includes staying at all the WDW resorts too. And having the extra cash for food and wine is a win-win situation.

I'm planning to hit MNSSHP after drinks.

So where are you thinking for dinner? I checked the other day and there are plenty of ADRs left for the weekend. I really like Raglan Road downtown. Any of the Signature restaurants are great and all the countries in EPCOT are good possibilities.

Glad I could hhelp bring you back to the DIS.

Have fun on the Anniversary. I did the MK 40th's last year and it was a blast... crowded and nuts... but fun. Let us know how EPCOT Center's birthday is. [And let us know what you think of the HorizonsResurrected guy's setup. That's one thing I REALLY wish i could experience]

In one week from today, I'll be packing up my car for an early morning Departure to drive down to Disney.

Hmmmm.... Tempting. I'm not sure what our plans will be, so consider me and the Girl a tentative maybe. I'll have to check with her to see if she wants to do it or has other plans.
