LOL! Blame the DIS. I just hit "enter" on the update and it came back with a message about it having been too long since I last signed in. Sooooo..... POOF!

Sigh......

They went ahead and seated down in front. A couple different people came out to talk to us. One asked if I knew the actor personally. I wanted to lie and say he was my long lost son, but I went with the truth and explained that a friend of the stage manager had arranged it for us. Soon after, someone came back out and put our minds at ease. He said they had worked it out, and that we should stay put after the show and when the crowd was gone, he'd come get us!

With that settled, we sat back and enjoyed the show. I probably have more photos of this show on my computer than anyone else on Earth..... but couldn't resist taking some more! I went with my telephoto lens this time for a little variety.

You ready for some of our most treasured photos from the entire trip??????

After the show, they brought Gaston out to meet us. Gaston was great, commenting on how he was sorry he couldn't come out last year. It was raining and he didn't want to mess up his hair.

It was a totally AWESOME character meeting. It was nice of course to meet a character we had been wanting to meet and had never met before. But mostly it was awesome that it came about through the kind action of another DIS member. We felt like royalty for the day. When we got back, I wrote a note to Guest Relations thanking the CM involved and Gaston for going above and beyond.

If the CM involved reads this........ many thanks again for the treasured memories you helped us create.

I never let on that day how disappointed I was going to be if things hadn't worked out. After our strange experience last year, it just didn't seem possible we could miss again. And this was probably the last time for Katie to wear a Belle costume to the show. The pictures just wouldn't have been the same another time.

Yeah! At least I didn't keep you waiting overnight!

It was one of my favorite character meets EVER. It just was so awesome to have someone offer to do that for us.

Thanks guys!

It was pretty cool. I still hope they have Gaston out when the Fantasyland Expansion opens. They need more villains out and about. And while he's nasty, he's not all that scary, so he wouldn't scare all the little kiddos away.

So I stalked Mary's peguin for some time and finally had success.

And I've stalked Gaston for some time and finally had success.

Wonder who should be next??????

Awe YAY!!!! That's awesome that you got to meet him and he was such a good character!

And I agree, they need more Villains out and about! I think that would help with the "not enough stuff for boys" complaint.
