Wishing I could be at long lost friends week! When I was 6, I was so happy to meet Friar Tuck! I told him he was my favorite of all the Disney characters and he gave me the usual head nod and took a picture with me. I was so upset because be did not respond to me! I thought we would ha g out all day!

Do they not always do themes in back to back weeks (was excited for this year's theme but if they aren't doing anything the week of the Princess (after the 17th) I will not be a happy camper))?

Yeah but its hard especially when the one you would really like to be there for ends four days before you get there. I usually can only get in town for the Run Disney races and since I have yet to travel for a fall WDW race I still haven't ever had a proper M&G with any of the prince characters except Eric (and the on the run stops).

It's fine! I just have a hard time reading people's tones on the internet so I tend to take them a bit literally sometimes.

Holding out hope against hope for something the weekend of the 22nd. In the end no matter what I'll have a good trip but it would be fun to be around for around of one of these things they are doing.

My bad feelings all stem from petty jealousy (of everyone who lives close enough to make an impromptu run to the parks for one of these events they find appealing). I am dying to meet the Robin Hood characters and know they are there right now, but there's nothing I can do about it.

Trust me the futual is almost mutual. I got so jealous when I saw what they were doing this week and knowing I am stuck here in CO for the next month. It got about 10 times worse when I saw what was happening the week before I get there.

I thankfully have photos with some of these guys from the races (they tend to bring out the retirees/rare ones for the races (I have photos with Scrooge, the Big Bad Wolf, John Smith, Hercules, Flynn (with and without Rapunzel), Cruella DeVille, Prince Charming, the list goes on, but you get the idea)) but its not the same as a regular meet and greet because its more of a meet and dash. Literally. I am especially dying to meet the Robin Hood characters (never seen them out on course, maybe someday). It was one of my favorite movies from when I was a kid.
