Good to know we will not be the only new ones! Thank you!

Is it crazy to bring the kids to all of this? They are 12,11, 7, & 7. Sorry if these are weird questions!! I tend to get a bit nervous meeting a whole bunch of new people at once, but I want to help support GKTW and I have been saving up some money for a donation to them. Just don't know if I should bite the bullet and join the group or just donate. Thanks!!!

I agree 100% with what Brian said.. Plus, how will you get to know us if you don't come?!? There will be plenty of things for the kids to do and I can promise you that you will have a wonderful time!! Money Back Guarantee

Please consider it.. Then we would no longer be the crazy Disney people on the internet, we would just be just the crazy Disney People!!

C'mon folks. It is getting close to the biggest. The baddest. The Hoop-Dee-do-iest DIS Meet of all

Sign up. What is holding you back? All the cool Podcast folks will be there. Plus Teresa

I just signed up my DW and me for Sunday of the GKTW meet. We are looking forward to a nice fall drive to Plymouth to meet up with friends who love Disney and the DIS team. Thanks to Tara and her team for organizing this wonderful event!

I'm a little late but I hope you decided to come to the meet! We are almost exactly birthday buddies - I'm turning 36 on 10/5! I am totally making this event my birthday celebration weekend. Last year we went just for the podcast recording day and I am, like you - very shy and nervous around new people. Everyone was great and friendly and it was such a great experience to be around people that love Disney as much as I do.

It's really just around the corner now - I can't wait!

We will look for you there. We did the Alaska cruise last year and cannot stop talking about it, so jealous you are getting to go.

I'll be there! And, because my b'day is also on 10/5, I'd like to say that I'm EXACT birthday buddies with you guys - just add 23 years to your ages and I'm there!!!
Hey, it's not the years, it's the attitude, right?? Great way to spend a birthday!!!
