AllEars® Meet and Greet October 1, 2010


Friday, October 1, we held an AllEars® Meet and Greet in Epcot's recently reopened La Cantina. It was an unusual day, in that we had so many members of the AllEars®Team on hand -- some in town for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, others in for the opening weekend of the Food and Wine Festival, as well as our lucky locals.

We had hoped that La Cantina would be fairly empty by the time of our 2:30 p.m. meeting, but the joint was still jumping, which made for a slightly crowded and chaotic meet-up -- but still, it was so great to meet so many of our readers, and get to spend some time with some old friends, too!

I tried to get photos of everyone, but alas, was not successful -- but I did get to capture a few of your smiling faces. Please let me know if I got your names wrong -- or supply your names if I don't have them. And send in photos of the meet, too, if you'd like me to include them!

A sweet girl named Katie made us feel like celebrities, asking for our autographs -- and yet we forgot to get her photo! Sorry Katie!

My husband Chris and I were able to stop by for a bit! We did not get to meet everyone because we had a reservation to catch, but we very much enjoyed being part of it!
Thanks for all your work!


My wife Dawn and myself from NJ were at this meet. Was nice to see several of you in person. The new Meet CollectorCards are pretty neat. Thanks it was fun. See you all at the parks!
Scott and Dawn


When is the next meet & greet?
I will be at WDW nov 15th - 20th.
Are there any single friends I can meet, maybe someone coming alone.
Or someone 50s - 60s? I will spend some time away from my daughter & her boyfriend, so it would be nice to meet & make a friend or two.
Is there a blog for something like this?
