ITS RECRUITMENT TIME!!! I have heard back from nearly all of our February team (still waiting on a couple ), so I believe that February is going to be a very active month here on the live thread. I'm looking forward to receiving lots of delicious food photos from our February team! I could however, use one more reporter during the week of Feb. 15 - Feb. 22, in case anyone is interested. Back in August when the idea of this "live thread" was born, I asked a few of our veteran Disney Dining reporters to send me an occasional pic during their August trips to the World. To be perfectly honest, in the beginning I was using this as a "stall tactic", as my Dining Report was coming to an end just a bit sooner than I had planned (I had a particular "grand finale" in mind, which involved a Labor Day DISmeet with Linda67 ). But it turned out to be so much fun receiving these "live updates" from emmysmommy, GoofySon'sMom, and Tracer00, that I decided to continue and launched this new thread in September. Now I'm excited to say that I will again have the honor of receiving "live updates" from emmysmommy during her mother-daughter trip from 2/23 - 3/7. And GoofySon'sMom will also be taking another trip from 3/22 - 3/26 and has offered to be a live reporter for a third time. With this in mind, I have decided to continue with this thread, at least thru the month of March. There is though a possibility that I will need to take a break during the week of March 22 - March 30, but if so then I will try to make arrangements to keep the thread going during my absence. So I am now recruiting for the month of March. Here are the volunteers I have so far: emmysmommy - thru 3/4 LumosQ102 - thru 3/7 wdwpirates - thru 3/10 woodleygrrl - 3/3 - 3/10 #1eeyoregirl - 3/8 - 3/17 MicRac - 3/16 - 3/22 DannysMom - 3/20 - 3/27 GoofySon'sMom - 3/22 - 3/26 KMarston - 3/30 - 4/6 PirateRachel - 3/31 - 4/6 As you can see, we already have at least one reporter at Disney World for nearly the entire month of March. However, it would be nice to have at least a few more volunteers. So if you are planning a trip for March, please consider sending us some live updates either by text or email. Also, I'm still taking names of those interested for April - June. At this time, I'm not ready to commit past 4/6 (the end of KMarston's trip) but if there is enough interest in doing the live updates, then I will seriously consider it. Here are the volunteers I have so far: APRIL mommakacie - 4/3 - 4/10 mousiemom - 4/15 - 4/19 Hannikins - 4/18 - 4/25 buzz1121 - 4/20 - 4/27 Rarity - 4/25 - 4/28 aladdinsgirl - 4/30 - 5/10 MAY MrsBearcat - 5/11 - 5/16 CalSea12 - 5/11 - 5/21 AvasMommy526 - 5/21 - 6/1 buzz1121 - 5/25 - 6/8 JUNE DisneyMamato4 - 6/2 - 6/9 disnmooner2013 - 6/3 - 6/10 sarabear - 6/5 - 6/12 dutchdisneyfamily - 6/6 - 6/14 GreenCntryGirl - 6/7 - 6/13 Goofyluver - 6/16 - 6/21 JennyWren - 6/24 - 7/1 KateB - 6/25 - 7/1 Last, I would like to thank everyone who has commented recently and let me know how much they are enjoying this thread. These comments are helpful to me in determining the level of interest for continuing the thread. I also love to see comments regarding specific updates which you find particularly interesting or helpful. Most of the credit for the success of this thread belongs to our many volunteer reporters, so please don't be "shy" about commenting on their great updates. I'm sure it's encouraging for them to see that their efforts are appreciated, and IMHO it also makes the thread more interesting.
