Thank you so much for a truly wonderful evening! I had been looking forward to tonight as one of my best highlights of the trip, and thank you so much for creating a warm, welcoming and joyous gathering. :lovestruc

Thank you MaxRebo for the delightful bandanas. We even had cast members chatting about us on the boat... our legend spreads! Next meet bards will be singing tales of our lime green bandanas.....

Thank you! Thank you! :cloud9:
This made me LOL, and have good memories. When I used to be with the group that had the big get-togethers (we called them Gatherings, and I think our biggest group was well over 100) years ago, we made our own buttons every year for the week's activities for all attendees, and wore them all week, so we could identify each other. Had many, many comments on them from other guests and CM's, as "the button people" (we actually called them badges), and we definitely were always the target of jokes at the Adventurer's Club, where some of us ended up every single night. :)

    Just a quick reminder for the Chatterati:
    Chatterati talked about meeting up just before doors opened to sit together as a group. I had previously posted meeting at the First Floor West Rotunda, which is on the same side of the convention building at the ballroom, just on the first floor. We'll meet for 10:30am to walk over at 10:45am to get seats together. If it's past 10:45am, just come meet us in the room for more socializing before the podcast actually starts.

    I'll be in a orange/green dress with Tigger(ette) ears. Looking forward to seeing y'all. And now to dreamland!... :cloud9:

    As I write this I'm still overwhelmed by the past week. Not just with the whirlwind of events we had happening, but with the kindness and acceptance that all of you showed me was truly astonishing.

    I especially want and need to thank some of you. Sorry, I am horrible with names and I didn't remember a few of them but I did remember your name on here. My heartfelt thanks goes out to SG131, 115belladonna, Idaho Mouse, his wife & kids, Brian, Jenny, Kay-Marie, Kathleen, Katherine, Kate, Nicole, Pam, Phil and Judi, Krista/Tiggerette and Steve, his wife & daughter. And there is one guy I'm missing. But thanks to him too, LOL. You are all truly amazing.

    I have 1 unopened bottle of Yellowtail Riesling wine and 2 unopened one gallon jugs of water.

    Let me know if you want to come get them at the Poly, and I'll put them in a bag at the Front Desk/bell services in your name!

    I realized tonight there was one really bad part of the whole experience. Anyone want to hazard a guess what it was?

    The broken monorail elevator at the Contemporary on Hoop dee doo night? It was like Planes, Trains, and Automobiles....the scooter edition😂😂
    I didn't hear about the elevator going down. For those who don't know, the escalators were also down. Everyone (except those unable to do so) had to use the stairs. With the elevator down, that would mean there was no way at all for disabled folks to get on or off of the monorail. Also means parents having to haul strollers up and down the steps.

    We encountered a great many things broken or down during this trip. There was the power outage at Gran Destino, numerous ride breakdowns, the lack of escalator at Contemporary monorail, some set pieces at American Adventure not working properly, ride video being screwed up on Mission: Space, and more. Disney seems to be so focused on building new stuff that they are totally neglecting to maintain all of the existing stuff. It was pretty sad actually.

    They aren't down, they are redoing the security and entrance/exit for the monorail there.

    Yeah, I guess “down” isn’t quite the right word but definitely unavailable. In addition, the restrooms on that level are closed which is a pain since that’s where the restaurants and bar are located.

    Yeah, that was a pain. But with the ECV I had it was easy to get to MK and get a bus to Ft Wilderness. The only thing is the stone pavers really rattle you around and with my knee and hip it's easier on my pain levels to take the Monorail. I don't or at least try not to take any pain killers later in the day unless I really need to. And taking them when I need them doesn't work because they need an hour to kick in.

    By the way, for those of you who left yesterday, it's been raining here near Tampa nearly all day, harder and harder as the day went on and it just started again about a half hour ago. But all of us know that "Fall" as we call it is only about 8 weeks away.

    Someone asked me about going so fast with my ECV. First there isn't a brake on them You turn them off and they stop inside a second because there isn't a flywheel on the motor shaft. 2nd, I need to get away from the people who walk and have their heads in their phones or otherwise don't watch where they're going. The horns in them are so quiet and no matter how often you say "Excuse me" everyone thinks you're talking to someone else.
