    Reserved for meetup planning...

    Possible "meetups" - please share interest/ideas/etc


    Dinner one night?
    Drinking (snacking?) around the world buddies?

    Take over a section of tables one or more days? (I'd love to have a "table buddy", so we can switch off leaving traders there while checking out the boards, games, etc)

    Playing tour group and get all DPF peeps taking over a ride(s)?

    So I think there is a consensus that Saturday after the event is eating and drinking around the world contest.
    AidanShepard has thrown the gauntlet and set the drinking bar high..and NewlyAddicted has picked it up. I think I'll take bets & just watch. and eat!

    After, how about everyone ending up at either Soarin or Frozen ever after just before park close....

    There also seems to be a bunch of us planning on Animal Kingdom Thursday (before and/or after event registration)

    Roll Call!
    Me & DS (Will)

    Requests! (I will open up a separate thread for near cost MNSSHP pins for those not attending. Or pre-trades....)
    HauntedJr needs a SotMK party card (I'll have an extra, FoolishMOrtal71 also volunteered to get one)

    So the first night of MNSSHP is Friday August 25.

    Myself, tinkerbelle1956 & Timeerkat are likely going to go....
    I have a great group costume if anyone wants to join in. I'll be wearing mine :)

    Jellyfish from finding nemo. (I have 5 of these already made from previous trips, and prob have enough stuff laying around to whip up a couple more if anyone is interested)

    If all goes according to plan, I will be there. Not sure of exact dates or where I'm staying yet.

    I'm open to any of the suggestions, except for drinking around the world (though I would be up for tagging along and snacking around the world!).

    I'm more of a snacker myself, unless DH goes with us (then I just steal a taste of his beverage!). If I tried the drinking I'd be flat before 1/4 of the way around....

    I can't guarantee anything, but I hope to attend! It all depends on finances and my class schedule for the Fall. If all goes well, I'll let you guys know!

    I also am not a big drinker, and I can't stand beer or wine, which I think are the only options at some of the countries.

    My sister (wdwaurora) and I are definitely going, but we're not sure where we're staying yet.

    Also, most of the countries have snacks now as well: Mexico has the quick service place, Norway has a snack cart of some kind, China has The Art of Tea, African outpost has the Cool Post, Germany has a pretzel cart, Italy has gelato, America has Turkey legs and funnel cake, Japan has shaved ice and two quick service places, Morocco has a dessert window, France has ice cream, crepes and more, UK has fish and chips, and Canada has specialty popcorn.

    As for drinks: beer or wine is your only option at Germany, Norway, US, UK, and Canada I believe. The Food and Wine festival starts soon after the event which brings the mixed drink options way up.

    I haven't been to WDW since last April and I still get cravings for the watermelon paleta and the cronut. I think I'm going to be hitting up Canada and Mexico every day I'm there. XD

    My wife and I will be there. Going to be staying at a timeshare close to or on property. Tessa you just haven't found the right beer, it's not just bud and bud light anymore. There are some really great breweries down your way.

    I will be going with my Dad. Since he's a local, we'll be staying offsite. I would love to be able to meet up for some trading. I am very shy in person and so I don't usually do much in person trading. My Dad has a lot of traders from when he and my Mom were really into pins, but he's given me permission to do with them what I want. I would still like to try and fill out some holes in my Dad's themes (holidays, Who Framed Roger Rabbit). And I have a bazillion mystery sets that I would love to get closer to completion.

    I don't drink either. Lynn99... lol, I'd be out flat right along with you. All I would need is a Margarita in Mexico and I'd float the rest of the way around and now that I can proudly say that I'm a non smoker, I wouldn't dare as I would want a smoke with a drink. Now eating and or snacking, bring it on.
    After I spoke to DH about some reservations/ plans with friends. He said honey, you go solo and have a good time. So that being said I'll either be at POFQ with Tessa 8/23 to 8/27, either staying st POFQ OR Beach Club

    I could drink all of ya'll around the world at least twice. :D

    Now that being said, though, I always prefer food! XD So much yummier!

    I'm going to do my absolute best to go! >w< I've already been offered a place to stay (Merlin is the best guys for real), so all I need is travel, park tickets, and of course the event ticket. So it's looking quite doable for me!

    hope - I totally understand bout being shy at in-person events. I'm sure I'm speaking for all of us when I say we'll do our best to make you comfortable. :)

    I really like the idea of setting up a DPF block of tables, as long as the tables aren't reserved by ticket number or anything.

    For doing restaurants/rides - do people usually stick mostly to EPCOT after the event? Or branch out to other parks? It sounds like a bunch of us are in for going around the world. Maybe Thursday we can meet up at another park to do a ride or restaurant takeover?

    I do know that I want to do Animal Kingdom for at least part of the weekend. Gotta get my Festival of the Lion King fix in!

    I also think it would be awesome to get a big group picture with one or more characters. (*cough cough* Joy and Sadness *cough cough*)

    I totally understand being shy (I am less so than I was when older, but still not comfortable in large groups.) I like Disney pin events though, cause you know you automatically share interested with the people there!

    I think I've got everyone on the main post, let me know if I missed anyone.

    Hi! I'll be there - TiggerSue (Sue) arriving 8/24 & leaving 8/27. Staying off property.

    A block of tables/area for DPF'ers in the Trade Area sounds like a great idea!! :tigger:
