This morning was a nightmare with the F&W bookings going live for all. I've booked events for the past 7 years, and I've never delt with such a screwed up IT system as what was encountered today. Even the CMs on the phone said the updated system is a mess. It's going to be a meltdown when Fast Pass+, magic bands, and DME website are linked/launched for all visitors.

At least I was able to get the 2 events I wanted. For Friday 10/25 I got the Distillery Mixology seminar at 6 PM, and then I get to head over to the 3D Dessert party right afterwards for Sweet Seats to indulge in more feasting and drinking that night.

If you want to officially be added to the list, all you have to do it ask and I'll get your name added. I usually try and keep the first post of this thread updated with all details once they become available. Usually a week or 2 before the meet the organizer will send out a PM on the board to everyone with more details and contact information to help everyone find each other once there. (Funny thing...Walt Disney World is a big place and our groups surprisingly isn't the only ones who decide to visit. Imagine that! )
Giggles!

Yes sounds like a lot of fun! I am Sarah! Nice to meet you! I am coming with my friend Sue and we are each bringing our kids.. but her daughter is 16 and old enough to look after my son who is 6, so we can have a bit of grown up time to enjoy the booze!

One thing I learned years ago... NEVER say "it can't get any worse". Someone has a really mean sense of humor and somehow ALWAYS finds a way to make it worse when I say that.

Good question... Anybody know his current status?


Either way... The bar is open even if the bartender isn't around. We also have a few people around here who enjoy mixing up drinks for our new members.

I could use a stiff drink, but can't -- liver issues right now and I don't need any problems before my next trip down to visit the Fantasy.

Anyone here going to be down in WDW for Christmas, 12/22-12/28?

the bartender recently moved..again.. he just started a new job monday and worked 2 9 hour days in a row, he's hurting but will survive. he is living in the middle of no where and they want a fortune to start internet service so it might be a little while 'till we see him again

in the mean time, welcome to all the new people
