Went to Epcot for my first official Mice Chat Meet. I had a wonderful time and I met some great people! I loved everybody there and we had the best fun, well except for the 37 minute Ellen's Energy Adventure Ride.
I arrived around 10:30 am and headed over to Fountain View, snapping some photos along the way. So I figured I would get something eat while waiting for the rest of the Mice Chat Crew to show up. I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to find anybody because I really didn't know what everyone looked like. So while I was waiting in line I noticed some people heading to the seating area outside and I believe I recognized Fishbulb and Dusty first.
What was funny was Fish looked through the window right at me and I started waving furiously. However, silly me, I didn't realize that he has no clue who I am. LOL
So just before I got a smoothie, Fishbulb walks in and I introduce myself. He gave me the biggest hug EVER! It was really nice to meet some friendly people, no one hugs anymore! LOL So I walked over and introduced myself to Dustysage and the rest of the gang. More and more people started showing up, I could hardly keep up with the real names vs the screen names...OYE! (Dusty is that Greek or Jewish, I don't know! LOL)
So after we got to know each other better, we all snapped some photos and FB went to get FP's for Mission Space. However, Dusty had a lunch reservation at the San Angel Inn, in Mexico for the group so we all headed over there for some Mexican fun!
While we were sitting there, they kept breaking dishes left and right, I believe we got up to 5 dishes? We were keeping a running tab because while we were sitting at the table, Witches of Morva was sitting next to me and the waiter walks by with this tray and all we hear is CRASH! Salsa and beer went ALL OVER WoM and my legs, poor Robert got the brunt of it!
So after lunch we jumped on El Rio Del Tiempo and enjoyed the cheesy goodness of that. (It's A Small World in El Mexico) LOL Then we headed over and got FPs for Test Track and someone (I forget who) wanted to see the Butterfly Garden. As that is my favorite part of the Flower and Garden Festival I was happy to oblige.
So we headed over there and chatted away in the butterfly area. Then a few of us got hot and we had to get out of that sauna. So we headed back to Universe of Energy, went on that ride and that's when I had to depart as I was meeting some family later that afternoon.
I have to say I was enlightened today, I didn't realize the extend of what people meant about the differences between parks and how little attention is given to WDW itself. Those were probably my favorite conversations the entire day. I would also like to say that TDLFan is SOOOOOOOOOOO not what everyone thinks he is. He was a very sweet man, with a big heart and I could really tell he loves all things Disney so much, he is just passionate when its not taken care of.
Oh I almost forgot to mention! Since I was the only straight female in the bunch I was the "Official fag hag" for the day. I can honestly say I have never held that title and I enjoyed every minute of it.
