Spaceship Earth Photos

Debra Martin Koma is in Walt Disney World right now. She sent these photos of the continued removal of the wand/arm that's been on Spaceship Earth for several years.

Also, this morning she reported that at 10ish, the standby wait for Soarin was 75+ minutes. They were able to get FastPasses with a window beginning just after noon.

MagicMeets…what can I say?

All Ears® Team Member Linda Eckwerth attended this past weekend's MagicMeets festivities.

My memories are just unbelievable. Fred, you out did yourself, yet again!

mm07a.jpgThis is the third Meet that Deb and I have attended. I must admit that I was hesitant about the first one, (Fred's second). I thought it was just a gathering of a few folks - nothing that great, just go up for the day, say hi to some fans and then back home.

Boy! Was I WRONG! Each year it has been more fun than the last. And yes, each year has been more work than the last. Each year there are more new fans to meet and old ones to greet. Each year there is more laughter and magic to share with one another. Each year there are many more memories to embrace.

It's important to know that this type of an event doesn't just happen overnight. There is much planning that goes into it. In fact, for AllEars, we start planning right after the last meet ends.

Deb and I give much thought about gift baskets and collecting items throughout the year. What shall we include? We look for special sales just about every time we are in a store that just might have Disney related merchandise!

Would Deb be a Main Ballroom speaker or breakout session speaker? Deb chose the Breakout room for its intimate feel. What decorations would we have in the room? What items would we giveaway at our table? What items could AllEars® contribute to the charity auction? Would Deb Koma's schedule allow her to attend this year? Are we going to be able to get all our stuff in one car or have to take two?

Auction TotalsWell it all worked out! Everything looked great when the doors opened at 10:00 AM Saturday morning. All of us already in the room could not wait for those doors to open. We could not wait to share with each of you the excitement we had been feeling all year!

It is so hard to explain what that excitement is. I just get all warm and fuzzy when I think about it. Seeing folks with great big grins on their faces, hugging one another, hearing screams of joy, seeing photos taken to capture and hold the memories. It just amazes me each year. It is so wonderful to meet everyone that stops by the AllEars table and "thank you" for all of your thank you's!

The prizes have been awarded, the charity auction is over - $9000 to Make a Wish"AWESOME, all of the screams have quieted from the roller coaster rides at Hershey and everyone is safely home. Wait! Is it time to start thinking about next year?!

We at AllEars will do our part to help make 2008 as good or better! I can't wait to see all of you again!

Having fun sharing the Magic!

P.S. Several folks at the meet thought I was LindaMac. So instead of just going by Linda, I'm now going to go by Linda Lou!!!! OK? So now, AllEars® has Orlando resident LindaMac and me, LindaLou!
