It’s here! Tomorrow I head to Orlando for five days of fun with some great friends at Walt Disney World. We’ve got a lot planned for the long weekend, but something I’m really looking forward to is Touring Plan’s August Meet Week! So I wanted to dedicate my post this week to remind folks that you can meet me and some of the other Touring Plans staff this weekend in the parks!
August 12th We’ll meet to drop into the Tower of Terror at the Touring Plans Meet Week Summer Nightastic Tower of Terror Meet. Join Katie, Caroline, and myself at 6 pm near the Tower of Terror wait time sign. There are have been some effects added to this fan favorite for the summer so we’re going to check it out. Folks who prefer not to ride this thriller are welcome to hang out with us in the queue and then take the “chicken exit” before those daring enough board the ride vehicles. Let’s see how many elevators we an fill up!
August 13th was supposed to be one of the last days of the Main Street Electrical Parade, however Disney has extended its run indefinitely. Nonetheless, we’ll meet at the hub to enjoy the parade as a group. We’ll meet near the popcorn stand in the hub at 8:30 pm before the 9pm start to the parade. I’m told I saw MSEP when I was a little girl, but I don’t remember it so I’m really excited for this one! Katie, Caroline, Todd, and I will be happy to treat everyone to popcorn and soda during the meet!
August 14th we’ll be meeting in my favorite pavilions to enjoy one of my favorite World Showcase snacks: pretzels in Germany! Meet us in front of the pretzel stand in the Germany pavilion to be treated to one of these delicious treats. Most of the Touring Plans blog staff will be on hand to meet readers and share these yummy snacks! Sounds like the perfect Saturday afternoon to me.
August 15th we’ll wrap things up with a meet at the Dawa Bar in the African area of the Animal Kingdom. Come by around 1:30 to hang out with us in the shade for a while and then if everyone is up to it we’ll wander down to Kilaminjaro Safaris after the meet to see if we can fill a jeep! Katie, Todd, and I will be there to greet readers and mingle with Disney fans.
Be sure to check us out on plancast! Also be sure to follow @TouringPlans, @khelmstetter, and @kidanikatie on twitter for any updates we might tweet out for the meet ups. If you have any questions please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer before the weekend begins!
Please come by any or all of these meets! Even if you only have time to stop in and say hi we would love to meet our readers. Don’t be shy! We couldn’t be more excited to host these events for the people of the wonderful Disney community. The events are sure to be a great time and I can’t wait to see whoever can make it out!
Next week I’ll be back from my WDW vacation with a trip report…
