Weird Theme Parks, Magic Meets, and Another TDC Plug

How sad am I that I’ve never set foot in any of the World’s Strangest Theme Parks, at least according to Dark Roasted Blend? Truly I would’ve visited Diggerland had the weather been a little more promising while I was in the UK….and last summer I was pretty darn close to Hershey Park the day after Magic Meets 2008, when Lisa and I recorded the Hershey’s Chocolate World Tour ride-through for Those Darn Cats episode #14 (and no, I had not planned in advance to plug my podcast twice in a day, but so there!).

And hey, speaking of Magic Meets, they’ve just opened pre-registration for Magic Meets 2009. The event sells out wicked fast, so they have a two-step process: You pre-register for the event (without paying), and then later on you pay your money to secure your place. So, pre-registering is not a guarantee that you’ll get in, but speeds things up a bit once it’s time to plunk down the cash, and (I think) ensures that you’re on the email list to be informed when the all-important payment window opens up. I’m hoping to be there again this year, especially since I probably wouldn’t be able to make it to MouseFest this year, even if it were happening.

What’s Your Excuse for Missing Magic Meet 2007?

12 Jul

This weekend’s Magic Meet in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania looks like a tremendous amount of fun! Sometimes it does indeed sound like everybody who is anybody in our geeky little Disney fan community will surely be there. Mike Scopa is the keynote speaker . . . were I going to be in the audience, I’d surely have to wear my Scopa Towers t-shirt.

But I have an excellent excuse for missing the event. No, it’s not just because the event’s sold out. It’s also that I’ll be walking around the Hartford Convention Center, dressed like an oversized Rockhopper penguin. It would seem I won’t be alone there . . . a few others might join me. If you’re one of those wacky people, and you see somebody’s mom cosplaying PenPen, I think you can be pretty sure that’s me. Come say hello.
