    I Met Roy Disney!

    While at the Magic Kingdom I was walking past Peter Pan's Flight when I noticed a guest relations guide with an older lady and gentleman. Upon a closer look I realized that this was Roy Disney. So very quietly and discretely I walked over and asked him if he would take a quick pic. with me and he said sure. I thanked him and shook his hand. It was a once in a lifetime encounter.

    Hey that's great! Very nice that you had the oppurtunity to meet him.

    Very cool. I hope you gave him the wink of solidarity without blowing his cover.

    On another note - I once met Brent Mydland at WDW. I hesitate to post the details as this is a 'family' board, but its a great story..........

    I have too ... on numerous occassions.

    He is a wonderful man. Very down to earth, humble and quite willing to speak with guests.

    Very Lucky! (And I'm Very Jealous!) I'd kill to meet Roy Disney... Or Micheal Eisner. One to thank, and to show the other the definition of dissent shareholder.

    (I just can't resist saying this: I hope Roy's not going out of his way to blend into the crowd at WDW... With glasses like those your bound to be noticed by us crazy Disney Geeks)
