As you can see by the pictures , I have met mainecoon lover . She came to NYC , I live in NJ . We have also had mini meets at WDW , when others are planned to go at the same time .
Also, I recently got to see some friends that I had met several times before at a Lobsterfest in VA .

ive always wanted to go to one of these meets, are they announced somewhere on here?

Are they awkward when you meet people for the first time or is the common disney theme enough to make it easy?

then arrange a meet with whoever is going the same time as you.

i have asked about a meet in this country, quite a few are up for it but its when and where and affordability too as people are always jetting off to see the mouse :)

I have met any NUMBER of lovely people from our boards here...and I always enjoy putting a name with a person :)

I am NOT going to try to list them all because I'd inevitably leave someone out and feel awful. :)

But I've never met someone I didn't have a blast with!

Oddly enough I met Slowhand and his DW on a Disney Cruise before I became a member here. In fact, he's the one that invited me to join this august group.

So it's all his fault. Blame him! :taunt:

Tom (:macwave:... I didn't do it. Honest!)

I'm always weary of saying who i've met incase I forget people. Luckily (or unluckily I suppose would be the right word) I've only met 1 from these forums :sigh: Hopefully in the future if a visit to Disney ever overlaps with a member then we can meet up :yes:

Johnie
15-06-2010, 11:03 PM
see? that's why I didn't list everyone....I knew I'd leave someone out by accident.

Well I've never met a stranger so it's not awkward for me to meet people. However, I could probably be too much for some so I try and tone it down a bit :unsure:

josh.p.
15-06-2010, 11:52 PM
I still get embarrassed sometimes, because I've met a few people through the tortoise groups, and many of them turned out to be not very nice :unsure:

For some reason, I really don't think it'd be a problem here, I think of each and every one of you as my closest friends :yes:

I've had that very problem too, Josh. Met some people through another site and it ended up pretty horrible. Nasty in fact. :(

So... I'm along with our Keith, over there tucked up behind the curtain peering at all you lovely, brave folks. :yes: :D

Hopefully you didn`t feel that way about everyone you met on that occasion Tink. :lol:

As others have said, I too have met several folks from Secrets [no names, no pack drill] and I love putting faces to their names when we meet for the first time. I somehow get a mental picture in my head of what some of the members look like and 9 times out of 10 I am totally wrong!

I feel as though all of the members I have met are among my true friends by now. :hug2:

I've met Keith and his lovely wife - they came to our wedding at the Pavilion in December 2004. :yes:

I haven't met Mick, but I have had the pleasure of working with his lovely daugther Lauren and her then boyfriend (is he still around Mick?)

Mostly recently I have met Nicki Rick, I haven't a clue what her name is on here though, sorry!! We get on really well :hug2:

16-06-2010, 12:47 PM
Well reading through I think the basic theme is Mick met most of us and then forgot

Back to the OP , a lot of us have known each other for 6-7 years and met up a few times in the past - its weird but as we all know eachother so well on here it never felt that weird in real life , we always have Disney to talk about if nothing else and if anything it brings us all closer together

I count Dawn and family amongst our closest buddies and others on here I haven't met I would dearly love to

We are a very friendly and open happy group and if we ever get the chance MM it would be a pleasure to meet up :yes:; it can seem intimidating at first , and sometimes it can seema bit cliquey, especially as we know eachother of old

Must arrange a mega meet at some point though

So Monorail Mick - tip1 - no point meeting our Mick as he won't remember, he's like the secrets pet goldfish :D

How about that horrid homeless guy with the cat, Michelle , speaking of cats .

Yes, he was horrid and that poor cat. I am still puzzled how he sat so well on the busy sidewalk. Nigel and I still debate if it was real or drugged. Don't forget the lift in Red Lobster. The trip was quite eventful to say the least. The night after there was some official people leaving the hotel, these blacked out cars appeared from no were and 2 police cars and they blocked the road. Then they guy appeared pointing a riffle, this guy was not taking any notice and kept walking. The gun guy pointed at him and ordered him to stop. 3 guys were usured out and they all disappeared.
