DisMeets.com is now MagicMeets.com
Since Fred Block is a buddy of mine and an all-around helluva guy, I decided I would post his news release on the blog...more photos coming soon.


Sayreville, NJ., November 21, 2006 -- The group responsible
for organizing the largest annual gathering of
Walt Disney World internet fans in the
United States' Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions
has changed its name --
DisMeets.com is now MagicMeets.com.

"This change establishes our identity as separate from
other Disney fan organizations," notes MagicMeets.com
founder Fred Block. "We want people to know that we
welcome ALL Disney fans no matter where they're from. We
initially appealed to Disney enthusiasts who were part of
various internet groups, or "communities," but now we'd
like every Disney fan to know that they are welcome
to our Northeast Disney Fans Gathering."

Attendance at the annual gathering
has grown rapidly in just three short years.
In 2004, the first get-together was
held in Edison, NJ and was attended by just 44 people.
By the following year, word had spread about the
gathering, and the meet moved to a larger venue in
Allentown, Pa., so that it could host 170 attendees. This past
summer, the third annual MagicMeets.com event
had more than 350 participants -- in fact, more than 100
people were turned away due to space limitations.

This coming summer, MagicMeets.com's fourth get-together
is poised to be its biggest and best gathering yet.
A new venue with facilities to accommodate a larger group
is being located, and the event details should be announced
soon.

This year's Northeast Disney Fans Gathering
will again feature a full day of activities, including
special guest speakers, contests, breakout session seminars,
a kids' play area, door prizes, and pin trading, as well as
plenty of time for conversation over a relaxing meal. In addition
to their special presentations, each speaker will also be available
for personal chats with attendees at tables set up in the
main hall.

"We may have changed our name to MagicMeets.com,
but our goal remains the same as it has always been," Block
says, "and that is to help Disney fans meet
other Disney fans, so we can share the magic that
Walt Disney World holds for all of us."

Like Day and Night...




These two nearly identical views of Expedition Everest in Disney's Animal Kingdom were taken from the bridge leading into Africa from Discovery Island. I think they exemplify the magic that Disney Parks take on once the sun goes down. While I didn't get to ride EE due to the massive lines during the Extra Magic Hour, I spend quite an amount of time gawking at how beautiful it is all lit up.

Wishes!




This photo from Wishes! is one of my all-time favorites. Taken from right to the flag pole on Main Street, there is no better view of the fireworks spectacular that this one.

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (Disney-MGM Studios)




This photo of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at The Disney-MGM Studios in oozing in atmosphere. Taken from a bit futher up Sunset Blvd. with a very slow shutter, the people in the foreground almost look like the same ghosts that are involved with the attraction (which I have never ridden due to being a chicken).
