    I got my room and am looking forward to meeting everyone!

    If I recall correctly, didn't Pete say that Walter couldn't make it this year because he would be traveling to Machu Pichu in Peru? If so, safe travels Walter and that is a trip report I'll be looking forward to!

    For those that haven't been to the Big E before and were wondering about food options I found this page on the Big E website. Pretty much something for everyone!!!

    ...except for Dole Whips :(

    Is anyone from the Boston area going out for the day to the Meet? I'd love to join you if possible and I'd help pay for gas.

    Have never been to a Disney fan meet and would love to go.

    Pvt message me please.

    That's definitely an option. Is there a link where I can sign up for that?

    Thanks for including me in the live call in show this week! I got out of work at 3:10 and figured that I didn't have any chance to get through. I was over my mom's house by the time I got on air and kept wandering around the house trying to get away from my family so that I could hear you all. Toward the end my mom started talking to me - it sounded like I was highjacking your conversation. :eek:

    I heard on the podcast about preordering Big E tkts through this event? I cant make the event, but I will order my tkts through the meet if a portion is going to GKTW.

    Can you please tell me where I can do that? Thanks

    Go to the sign up link in TSWJan78's signature in the above post and register only for the Sat Big E tickets. We will mail them to you as soon as we pick up the order. PM TSWJan78 and let her know that you are not attending and want the tickets mailed to you.

    Sorry you can't make it, thank you for supporting GKTW!

    Just signed up for Sunday, can't wait.

    I normally don't talk to people about Disney, their eyes always seem to glaze over and they have to go. Maybe this time I'll talk to one of you.

    Please consider bringing some auction or raffle items with you to the event! We are looking forward to getting a lot of money raised in the silent auction items so if your have something that you'd be willing to donate please either let Tara or myself know or bring it directly to the event and we can it into the silent auction or the door prizes.

    In case you were wondering what some of the unusual food options are at the Big E, here is a peek...of course, some of the current popular fair foods are there...chocolate covered bacon...fried oreos...maple bacon ice cream...

    ...but...FRIED KOOL AID?!?!?!?

    My family may be ditching after the Big E to get home for home work etc. Do you think I would be able to arrange a ride to the brunch from the hotel and then
    a ride back to the Boston area after the podcast? I would be happy to pitch in for tolls and gas. I just do not want to miss the podcast. I am really looking forward to it.

    I am willing to help with both but that means staying till the very end and leaving the hotel extra early. We will make it work!!!
