The weather was beautiful and we had a great turn out at the Meet and Greet at Animal Kingdom.

I then asked Bri and Anna to come up and explained to folks they had a special role with Walt Disney World. I had an AllEars t-shirt for whoever knew who they were! Folks shouted out a few things and then someone said " Are they the moms?" And indeed, Bri and Anna are members of the special Disney World Mom's Panel, an online forum where you get personal answers to your questions about traveling to WDW and the Disney Cruise Line. Oh, and there is also a Disney Dad, a Disney Grandma and Moms from Canada (Bri) and the UK.

We had a few AllEars trivia questions and folks with the correct answer received either an AllEars hat or Tshirt.

We spent lots of time chatting and getting to know each other and then realized the standby line for the Safari was 50 minutes. After a quick show of hands, we decided to head straight for the Flame Tree and grab lunch. About half the folks found their way to our area and we continued to chat with each other. It was a great afternoon.

Hi Deb,

My wife and I bought an interest in the Kidani
Village, just wondering when there will be pictures from Disney on the new place.

Thanks Joe Degnan

Deb's response: Joe, It'd be nice if they have photos available before it officially opens, but only time will tell. Jack Spence from AllEarsĀ® will be blogging from there opening day. I"ll be there the following weekend. There will be LOTS of photos by mid May.

Denice:

Sorry I could not stay but thank you again it was an honor to meet you, Jack and Gloria. This site has become a favorite and I was glad to meet some of the people who make it happen and You Ms. Wills for starting it all!!! My husband is shy about the meets right now and we had an ADR to keep but I made him promise that next time he will stay no matter if we had to cancel something!!!! I hope to see you all next January for the Marathon weekend (I am just a 5k girl but I am working on it)...

Jordan:

I'm so sad my family missed the meet. We were in the World last week and were headed back home on Sunday. We had just purchased an annual pass for my DS and were tempted to run over there to use it! Maybe next time.

Eric:

Thanks for the pictures!!!!
My family will be in WDW from May 9-16.
Anychance of a meet and greet then???
I would love to meet other Allears members.
Thanks for a wonderful website!!!!!

DEB: I am hoping to have a meet at Kidani Village in early May. Will announce once plans have firmed up.

Carol Pranis:

Hi Deb,

What a fun event! Sure hope that you will be able to schedule a similar event for your West Coast AllEars fans while you are visiting Southern California and Disneyland in the fall!
