10/7-14/2012 Jamborini Meet for Food & Wine. Everyone is Welcome!

The 2011 Jamborini Meet (10/2-8/2011) was so much fun, we're doing it again in 2012!

You don't have to be an AKL Lover (aka 'Jamborini' or 'Kidanite') to join us, but you must love WDW, good friends, and fun!

This is the place to discuss our ideas and plan our Meets.

The dates we are scheduling Meets are Sunday Oct 7th through Sunday Oct 14th. The next post below will list the tentative Meets, and be updated as needed.

Some ideas for potential Meets:

AKL - Victoria Falls or ?
Epcot Resorts - Crews Cup Lounge, by the quiet pool at BC, or ?
La Cava (aka “The Ditch”)
Tutto Gusto (the new Wine Bar in Italy)
Illuminations
Wishes
Group ride/attraction
An “Off-Kilter” Meet; A “British Revolution” Meet, etc.
World Showcase Meet for some kiosk sampling
An “Eat to the Beat” Meet
An early morning Meet for coffee in the Boardwalk area
A Deminar or Paid Event
MNSSHP
Jelly Rolls
Swan Dolphin Food & Wine Classic 10/12-13


All ideas/suggestions are welcome!

Check your schedules and if you have some free time, please check post #2. If there’s a meet you can attend, let us know! If there’s nothing scheduled for that date yet and you have an idea, please speak up!


See y'all in October!!

OK, DW and I will bite. We'll be at BLT 10/8 - 10/17 for our 30th Anniversary Celebration Trip. We'd love to meet up with some fellow DIS'ers as WDW can get so lonely sometimes!

I am assuming post #2 is still the official updated GTG time/locations. With 22 pages of comments, it's a bit overwelming trying to sort everything out.

Aside from a few must have ADR's, we are leaving our schedule open to just enjoy the spontinaty of a a long trip.

Looking forward to the subscription updates.

I'm glad you found us! Yes, post #2 will have the official meets. We do lots of talking (and often stray off topic!) so no need to read the other pages!

Not much in post 2 yet as we're waiting to see what paid events and deminars WDW releases -- hopefully by July.

Are you considering doing the Swan/Dolphin Food & Wine Classic (10/12-13)? It's a great way to try lots of menu items at the Swolphin restaurants. If the weather cooperates, all the booths are out on the Causeway. If it rains, they move it inside the Swan.

Normally we do Food & Wine Festival from the first day (in late September) through the 1st week in October. Breaking tradition this year specifically because of the Swolphin dates!

Congrats on 30 years! "JD" (aka Dwight!) and I are also celebrating 30 yrs this trip! Looking forward to meeting you and your wife.

Please check back here from time to time - especially if you haven't gotten any update notifications. The boards have been inconsistent with those lately.

I have zero desire to be on those particular ships, but I may have to give in once to keep getting my way the other 90% of the time LOL! That's why I'm trying to rope others in, make it more fun for me.

By those ships I mean the Oasis ones, not the Disney ones. Gotta figure out how to edit on my phone still.

How about an NCL cruise in a suite with concierge service and a butler?!! Do you think you could convince Mark to try that?!! It's called "The Suite Life" and it lives up to its name! Some of the Suite categories are expensive (the suites on The Haven - the private deck!), others are less expensive than either Disney or the Oasis ships!

(Diana and I will be happy to give you any information and encouragement you might need!! )

Just something to think about!!

An NCL cruise would work as well, that way I can keep putting off the Oasis.

Hope everyone had a great 4th and is managing to stay cool. I don't think our central air has shut off for the last three days and even Orlando is cooler!

Well, since I posted that, I am now booked for the Oasis. It had to happen sooner or later, and since I have friends sailing next April on it, it became sooner. But I must give a big shout out to Laura - I mentioned what you said about suites and I whined a bit about how small the cabins are on the Oasis and wah-la - I now have a "suite" (more like a normal hotel room ) with concierge service. Laura, could you now put in his head how I need a much bigger house and more vacation points?

And have a great cruise - can't wait to hear about it.

Yay for you!! (always glad to help a friend!! ) WAY more fun to cruise in a suite!

Not sure how I can assist with the bigger house and points, but where there's a will, there's a way!!

We are leaving in less than 14 hours and I haven't even started to think about packing yet. This will be so strange........ we're not meeting up with friends or family and we aren't going to a place we know well (we've heard lots of "WHAT???? You're NOT going to Disney???!!!!" )

JD and I will probably bore Tori to death!! She's hoping there are some cute 18-19 year old guys on board. Go figure!

Guess I better get busy.

Hope you all have a great week and I will be back with pictures next weekend!
