    Hi gang!

    I'm so excited to be heading to the World in just under a week for a very quick trip for WDW's Leap Day event! It so fun to see how many DISers will be in the parks for the event and I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones! That's when it struck me, let's get together and use it as an excuse to raise some money for Give Kids the World!

    Let's meet up at 10:30pm to ride Pirates of the Caribbean!

    Your gift for donating is a fashionable accessory to help you light up the night! It's a Win-Win!

    Here is the event link through first giving so we can raise money before the 29th. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/leapdaymidnightmeetmsep/mrsdfundraisingpage
    I will also gladly accept donations the day of.




    Who's with me?

    I usually catch if from near the Diamond Horseshoe. In November, my DIS daughter and I were the only people there for 30 feet on either side. Until everyone saw us having fun and dancing and laughing. Then they all came over and joined in our merriment. I of course got the "I can't believe you are embarrassing me" glare from her pre-teen eyes.:confused3:goodvibes

    I'm wondering if they are doing ADR's for the Plaza. I saw on another thread that it will be open until 3am.

    Hi all!

    I've tweaked the meet a bit. We are officially meeting at 10:30pm on 2/29/12 at Pirates of the Caribbean!

    We can chat (maybe we'll be lucky enough to be able to grab a Dole Whip - haven't heard it's operating hours) grab your glow-y accessories (shopping for them tomorrow) and ride Pirates together.

    While I'd love to meet as many DISers as possible this is really about raising some $ for Give Kids the World.

    Please consider making a donation to GKTW. Your money is going to a GREAT cause.

    I have a dinner ADR at 9:30 that night so I don't think I'll be there for the 10:30 meet. I'll definately be there for the 12 AM MSEP so let me know where you guys are planning on being.:thumbsup2

    I had the chance to meet a Make a Wish family today while waiting for pics with Marie the cat. I asked if they were staying at the Give Kids the World village and they said say and it has been a blessing to their family. I was excited to tell them that I am raising $ for GKTW. They were so grateful Nd thanked us all! Noes the time, if you're planning to donate do it for all those cuties!
