    I Just Met Leisure Guy!

    So you all remember the Disney World video from a couple years ago, with the 4 hosts (featuring the lovely Erin)? Well, I'm working at a convention in Dallas for Sherwin-Williams, and a comedy troup called Four Day Weekend is performing throughout the meeting. And guess who's a member of the group? Yup - Dave Wilk, the Leisure Guy who kept checking out all the benches in WDW. I just now had a minute to speak with him backstage, and it was just like meeting up with a real celebrity! Very nice guy, interested in what we were doing, etc. He said that Erin is just what you'd think - chipper, charming, lots of fun. And he said that Luke was exactly the surfer punk you thought he was, and kept getting into trouble throughout the shoot. They shot for 28 days, and they all got to stay in the Grand Floridian (including Dave's wife & kids!).

    Four Day Weekend is working out of a place in Ft. Worth formerly called the Caravan of Dreams, a very famous jazz club that folded a few years ago. Dave says he's gonna bring me some passes tomorrow, so I can go check it all out. A very cool meet with a nice Disney celebrity!

    I had to look him up (I sort of recognize him). I thought you were talking about David Leisure, Isuzu guy.

    That is very cool! His sections seemed to be more watchable than the others. I never really thought about how long a shoot would take for a WDW planning DVD.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    I would have thought that they were there for a week to 10 days. But 28 days? That's a nice shoot! He also said that they got to adlib a lot of stuff. The whole "get in the photo!" thing was all Dave's idea on the spot. Fun!

    That reminds of me also of the 25th Epcot day - I had someone from RADP recognize me (from the back of my head). She then posted online that she met her first "internet celebrity". I got laughed at on that one (I laughed a lot, but I would prefer not to hear anyone say that again!)

    I know TDLFan says he gets recognized overseas, which I think is very cool.

    It'd probably be neat to meet David Leisure also! :0)

    Dude, I met an internet celebrity too! Just about every MiceChatter is one.

    That's cool that you got to meet him danyoung and even cooler that he was so nice and took the time to chat it up with you.

    Re: I Just Met Leisure Guy!

    I told him yesterday that he was a hit on the web and that everyone remembered him with warmth. He was very touched, and asked me to convey his thanks. His troup did a couple of longer improv sections yesterday, and they were both funny and very very touching. Most enjoyable!
