Hi Tom - I have been buried this summer and so am really behind on my DLR DIS forum time!
Count me in at the Hearthstone Lounge. Looking forward to seeing all of you good folks!
We will be at DLR Tue-Thurs and then DS17 and I will be at the Expo Fri-Sun.
Count me and my DH in! We can't wait for our overdue vacation, the D23 expo, and to meet some new DIS friends at our first meet!
Ok....locking it in.
Thursday, August 8th. 5:00pm. Fireplace outside the Hearthstone Lounge at the Grand Californian.
Hope to see you all there!
Nice to see you, stranger.
Sorry to miss you all then.....maybe I will see some of you around the Expo.
Maybe I should wear my DIS pin
I thought so but you what they say about assuming...
I'll be there!
Me too, and possibly 1-2 others! See you there!!
To get to the fireplace outside the Hearthstone Lounge, look at the map on the right where it shows #6 Summer Porch.
I might be there too! Would be nice to put faces to some names! My first expo as well, soooo excited for the Menken Sherman concert!
I'm going to try my best to be there!
I'll be there.
Planning on DCA and world of color that night so it should work out perfectly.
I will try and be there, switching to PP that day, but will try and pop over.
I will be there! BTW, is anyone playing The Optimist like me?
I have tried getting into The Optimist, but got a bit overwhelmed. I will have to give it another try. Are you enjoying it? Can you get into it without being able to hunt for clues at the Tam O'Shanter, Disneyland and other locations?
I've been playing the Optimist. Looking forward to the Disney Cartography booth at the Expo. Really like some of the prints and hope they have them for sale. Pretty sure they will
Many of the people who are playing are not able to go to the locations because they are far , but they are really contributing to the game. It is confusing and took me awhile to understand, but once I did, I'm pretty addicted now. Because I live in OC, I was able to go to the locations which ill admit, is pretty awesome as it led players into Club 33 to search for clues which was shocking. Also saw places that are in LA which Walt Disney used to frequent. I think it's a fun way to learn about Disney history as well as a different way to enjoy the expo as I'm so curious what they are going to do at the expo for us. If you are going to the DIS meet up and playing this game, we can chat more there.
Slightly off topic, what is the Optimist, and where do you find it?
Back on topic, how long will everyone be at the Hearthstone area? I plan on attending but won't be arriving early enough to be there by 5 p.m.
It's on the D23 website but here is the link.
It's an Alternate Reality game. You search for clues and try to solve them helping this fictional character named Amelia discover what ties her grandfather had with Disney. It's taken people to Club 33, Griffith PArk, the Tam, Walts Disneys Barn, as well as Walts favorite Chili place. However, if u can't go to those places, you can help in trying to interpret the clues. It's way elaborate but really fun. Supposed to have a big reveal at the expo.
