  • A Meeting With Matt

    Ahem....


    I MET MATT OUIMET!!!

    Thank You. You may now continue with your lives.

    Just Kidding. Anyway, I was walking past Club Buzz with my friend Daniel. Daniel saw him and I went chasing after him. After finally getting the courage to talk to him when he was about to cross Cosmic Waves, He happily agreed, and the Imagineer he was with took the shot. As you can see, he's wearing the 50th anniversary nametag, one of the ones we will get in about a week. I told him I was extremely appreciative of all the work he has done to restore the park back to its original glory. He was obviously flattered, and gave a lot of credit to the Imagineer that was with him (I forgot the other guy's name :confused: ). He then asked if I was excited about Space Mountain re-opening, to which a hearty positive reply was given. He then said that he had gone on it earlier this week, and it was really good. I then said thanks, and we went our separate ways. I was jittery for almost an hour.

            Matt O. rocks!

            I always thought Cynthia Harriss tried hard too but she failed. Pressler and Eisner are just evil. But Harriss at least saved the Canoes..

              Matt is a very down to Earth guy, and I love how he walks the park and talks to the guests just like Walt himself used to do. Matt has done an excellent job with the park, and we should all continue to thank him whenever we see him. Thank you Mr. Ouimet :bow:

If possible id ask him to take a picture as well.. well done Anyways..good to knwo that Matt actually take the time to go down to the parks himself.

                    Wow! that's so cool! If Matt was walking the park with an Imagineer... Who knows what they could have been talking about! The imagineer could have been giving suggestions to matt of what to do with Tomorrowland and such. Just a guess. I like Matt even more now that I know he walks the park and talks to guests.

                          I too have more respect for him now that I know he walks the parks. Its one thing to walk them at night or before the park opens, but to walk around and possibly interact with guests if he knows them. He looks like a pretty modest man, so im not suprised that he passed off credit to the imagineer. Should of asked him about the peoplemover! :P

                                Matt Ouimet is awesome!! I met him in June of last year at a voluntEAR event, and he talked to me and my sister for a while. We saw him later in the day and he remembered us! I 'met' him again a couple months later as he was talking to a bunch of CM's at another event. He was introducing himself, and when he got to me he said "Wait a minute, we've met before, right?" I couldn't believe he remembered me still. Then a few months ago I was working in the park and he walked bye and said hello to me, by name. The absolute most wonderful thing about this is that I'm not alone in my experience. He knows so many of the CM's, and he really seems to care about us. We <3 Matt!

                                      Thats great to have someone that high up care about everyone. I doubt the evil twins ever cared about any of the CM's enough to grace them with there presence.

                                        Well, since I am a Kodak minion, and he seems to be popping up all the time where I work, I will ask him next time I see him.
