    Micechat meetup at WDW GayDays

    Ok, it looks like I'm the official organizer for this one.

    I'm thinking we should meet for lunch/brunch. Probably counter service in the parks. Preferably somewhere decent, but not too popluar, and big enough where there are lots of open tables.

    Here my opening suggestions:
    June 2 at MGM (ABC Commissary) or
    June 3 at Epcot (Yakitori House or Liberty Inn) or
    June 5 at MK (Tomorrowland Terrace or Columbia Harbour House)

    Anybody have any preferences or other time/place suggestions? Personally, I'm leaning toward Yakitori House at noon on June 3, but I'm definitely open to ideas.

    Look forward to meeting you all soon!

    -- Chris

    ABC Commissary would be an excellent choice at MGM
    At Epcot I think the Liberty Inn is a great place, always plenty of empty tables there, but the food is just a typical burgers and fries - how American is that
    In the Magic Kingdom, The Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station is awesome place to meet.

    Look forward to meeting y'all

    There's still no concensus. So far Columbia Harbour House is leading by one vote (meeting there Sunday June 5, noon). Does that sound good to everyone? Any other suggestions?

    Whatever's decided I'll do my best to attend. I vote for Epcot, though. Earlier in the weekend and a more leisurely day than the gay day at MK. I'm traveling with friends so I think I'll be spending Sunday at MK with them.

    And hey, if it's earlier over the weekend it's a chance to perhaps meet more new people to hang with.

    I don't mind the Harbour House either so one more vote in favor from me.

    Thanks to everyone for their suggestions so far. As far as times and days and locations, I've decided that we should do a counter-service location in Epcot on Friday June 3. There are a few reasons for this:

    The crowd capacity at Epcot is bigger than at MK, and there are more dining selections. The "official Epcot day" (assuming a lot of visitors will at least somewhat stick to the schedule here) is earlier in the week, so if you meet someone great at the meetup, you'll have more time to hang out together later. And, "counter-service" because I don't want to make a priority seating for 25 people and only have 6 show up (or vice versa).

    So, personally, I'm still leaning toward Yakitori House, 'cause it's a little overlooked, and I'm up for something other than burgers and fries. But there are a lot of other places as well. The Land will be newly re-opened, but I'm avoiding it as a meeting place because Soarin' will draw a lot of extra folks into the Food Fair. I'm also avoiding the hotels because I'm thinking of this as "an hour or so out of your Epcot day" rather than something you should have to leave the parks for. Any more food suggestions?

    I second that... Yakatori House would be a good choice for the meet!

    Do NOT. I repeat DO NOT make your meet at Yakitori House unless you aren't planning on dining.

    I've mentioned this in a couple of other threads, but I have eaten there many, many times, including last week. It was my last gasp attempt to see if my last two visits were simply exceptions or if the place had gone down the toilet in quality. Well, it had.

    The portions have been shrunk considerably. They don't even call the chicken yakitori and put it on skewers because they feel their audience is too dumb to undertand so it's chicken terriyaki that makes a mall food court joint taste like all-world cuisine. The chicken, which always was breast meat, is now ... I dunno quite how to put it, but mystery chunks with veins, fat and a red/brown color is what it looked like. Even the old ginger salad dressing has been replaced by some horrific stuff that has a medicinal aftertaste.

    And the legendary Japanese service? Hah. It;s now the typical WDW service. You now clean your own trash. The tables are filthy. The CMs, while nice, are very disorganized in a culture known for the opposite.

    It's just a very depressing experience. I strongly urge you guys/gals to NOT patronize the place. It's a pathetic shadow of what it was even a year ago.

    Please trust me on this one.

    A better option would be Tangerine Cafe, which as of last week, still puts out quality, tasty food options.

    Also, I guess the Japan CMs are embarrassed about the food as well they should because they no longer have samples in the case to view.

    OMG!!! I didn't know. I will have to go to EPCOT Center just to check this out. Sad!! Oh well... in regards to the meet, I will be willing to go anywhere as I am easy to please (no nasty jokes, ok?)
