    Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    I thought it would be fun to share our experiences about what brought us to Mice Chat.

    Here is mine:

    I was a big fan of reading Mice Age for the past year, but because i was already an active member of a social site i hadn't felt like i had time to add Mice Chat to the list. So fast forward to December... my mom and i had just renewed our APs and we had spent a lovely night in the park. As we were wandering out around 1 am (we stayed to shop) i saw 3 guys carrying merch bags and wearing their pin lanyards and they were discussing some intricate details of the park. I then heard one guy say "yeah, im getting on Mice Chat immediately when i get home to discuss this". I actually laughed out loud!! I knew about Mice Chat, but i had no clue how big and cool it was. So out of curiosity, i joined up the moment i got home! I have been addicted ever since. I spend HOURS on here. I love Mice Chat!

    I have tried to figure out who these 3 guys were, and i have my ideas. So if you happend to be a guy wearing a loud shirt with a pin lanyard on a friday night in December, i totally saw you! TEE HEE!

    ps. im joining Mice Chat gold next week when i get paid. So more kitty posting goodness for all!!

    Kitties!
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    I joined because I love how everybody is posting ideas and TRip Reports and because it feels like it's one BIG happy family!

    The only down side is the not-so-nice posts!
    Still wishing for that AP....

    Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    I had remembered reading on another MB that these forums had just opened up and I registered really early on just as a lurker. I was really busy at the time working at Disney and juggling some other things. Flash forward to this December when I decided to come out of hiding and started posting regularly. I just bought Gold this weekend and it is good times.

    Cool Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    KITTIES!!! Oh crap...that's been said already! LOL

    Actually I I had been reading MiceAge and MiceChat for awhile and I thought that I should stop lurking and join the party, especially since I am a Disney enthusiast like everyone else. I don't regret doing so at all whatsoever. You guys are the best friends anyone could ever want to have. You rock!

    Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    Friends.

    Many of my friends moved away and I was in desperate need of some new blood in my life. So, I started posting and began chatting with a couple people who encouraged me to get an AP, which I did.

    I've never looked back. Joining, meeting new people and forming life long friendships has been one of the most important things I've ever done.

    Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    I'm not a member of COW (at least not officially though I'd like to be)... I'm only an animated Disney character in the most general sense ...and I already know most of the park's secrets...
    but I joined MiceChat in April 2005.

    And I did it at first because I thought it might be a good way to connect with fellow former cast members that I used to work with back in the Dark Ages of the 70's and 80's. I was also at least somewhat famliar with Kevin Yee because through a search, I found some old websites he had, that had actual pictures of where I once worked.

    Obviously, I found something that would be more to me than just that.

    It has been a source of joy and comfort during what has otherwise been one of the more trying times of my life.

    So, indeed it is "all of the above".

    Once again, thanks to all who have made it possible.

    All of the above.......Hit home I guess when I adopted the official Micechat kittie...C.O.W.!

    My life has changed (for the better) because I have met friends for life here on Micechat!

    Geez......at a loss for words!

    Tearing up now......

    Such a tease!!! Darn it SCUBAbe that sounds down right intriguing!

    Me? Um... I don't really remember the why exactly. My daughter worked at Disneyland for a while right out of high school so I became more interested in Disney after that. I had been reading MiceAge after Al left the other place, and when MiceChat opened up it was just kind of natural to become a member.

    But since then? Like many others its the friendships I've made that actually keep me here. I've said before... come for the Disney, stay for the Friendships!

    Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    I had followed Al's reports for years, going back to
    alt.disney.disneyland. The info in his posts, and
    reports gave that insight to what new things are
    happening in Disneyland, new projects, and his info
    didn't shy away from things that could and should
    be improved.

    Remember way back when DL use to have an exhibit
    about upcoming new attractions in DL? I LOVED that!
    Looking back, it was my favorite part of the trip, to
    get a look at the possible future of DL! Sadly DL no
    longer has anything like that. (and shame on them
    for not doing so! Even Walt shared bit of Pirates with
    us, before the attraction opened.) This area alway
    made me excited for the next trip! Well, Al's articles
    give us the same kind of glimpse into what we might be
    seeing in DL's future! Of course, he also reports on
    things that need attention at DL, and I certainly appreciate
    that aspect too.

    When Al started Miceage, another chat site would always
    end up posting a topic about Al's most recent articles, Many
    of the posts talked about the specifics that Al mentioned.
    BUT there were also people who would basically attack
    Al, saying "his info is never right" . It drove me nuts. SO
    when Darkbeer mentioned on that chat site about MiceChat,
    I had to sign up right away.

    I knew the conversations about the articles would be much
    more civil and certainly would attract other people who are
    excited about DL and it's future projects. And that has certainly
    been the case. Mice Chat has really grown into terrific Disney
    loving community.

    Re: Why did you decide to join MiceChat?

    I came for the Disney. I stayed for the sluts.

    Serious, when the Jr. Miss and I got our AP's, I went online for Disney secrets so we could enjoy the park. Somehow, I ended up here, and I've never left. I've made some of the most wonderful friendships here, and I even met the love of my life, Anders, who I am going to marry next year.

    I love this place.
