Thank you, I would like to have gone, especially as I'm off work this week, but my dog was very poorly and I couldn't risk planning to be out of the house all day.

Am looking forward to hearing the feedback.

Seems like this was more of a courtesy visit rather than one to reveal anything, from what I've read. Though that's probably to be expected.

DLP is in a period of consolidation and have lots of plans for Halloween and Christmas, and no plans to cancel Dreams!, unsurprisingly.

I really enjoyed the Round Table, and felt honoured to be able to meet Philippe Gas. I also had a drink and long DLP chat with Jonjo and his wife after the meeting in the hotel bar, which was lovely, and would probably have continued into the early hours if we didn't have trains to catch!
dlpSteve - I have been looking for any reports of the meeting - can you give me a link for ones you have found please?

I read a few bits over at magicforum and from some people on Twitter.

I'm quite gutted not to have been able to go, meeting Philippe Gas would have reward enough

Just followed your links and read both yours and Dan's reports, Figgygirl. It all sounds very encouraging and I am impressed that this meeting was held in London due to the fact that they listened to a request.

Glad you had such an enjoyable time.

It was a very interesting meeting, and it was great fun meeting up with Figgygirl afterwards for a drink in the hotel bar. I will never complaint about bar prices at DLP again.

I took about 4 pages of notes and I'll type these up this weekend. A lot of things that we have discussed ourselves on this forum were brought up at the meeting and it over ran by 30 mins. - Everyone had a lot of things to say.

The Shareholders meeting was being recorded and will be typed up so there will be a record of everything that was mentioned.

Philippe Gas (CEO) and Mark Stead (Chief Financial Officer), were in London to meet with the institutional investors in the City (pension fund holders ect) where it was discussed that Euro Disney shares are under valued.

I was quite surpised that the majority of questions were operational and not finacial. I understand the Round Table meetings held in France are more about numbers that the parks themselves so this was very good.

One interesting thing I found out was that the Shareholders club is only run by two CM's and one of these Olivier Lambert was at the meeting and it was nice to finaly put a face to the name.

I did mention the problem with the lack of seperate disabled toilets at WDS and Phillippe, Mark and Olivier all made a clear note of this. After the meeting I gave Olivier more details of the problems that one of our forum members has and he said it will be looked into. So maybe there is still time to build one at the new Ratatouille ride?

I've noticed at Dan over on Character Central has posted some notes and Figgygirl too.

Olivier is arranging for more round table meetings to be held around Europe with the next non French one possible being held in Belgium.

It was a very fun and relaxed meeting and we found out that Philippe actualy played one of the Characters when he worked at Walt Disney World.

Liked your thread telling us about your experiences Figgygirl - I wasn't aware of the forum on tripadvisor but it looks like another interesting one

Looking forward to reading your report too Jonjo, thanks again for giving us the chance to pass on questions/comments
