      Totally awesome!!
      Good morning, son
      In twenty years from now
      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
      And I can tell you 'bout today
      And how I picked you up and everything changed
      It was pain
      Sunny days and rain
      I knew you'd feel the same things...

            Due to the Tiki Room fire, I've adjusted the schedule to move the Tiki Room further down the list, and give them a chance to fix things up before reopening it.

                  Note: we have changed the meeting location - from now on, we'll meet at the exit to the "Meet Mickey" store in Town Square. (not the entrance... the exit)

                    I must have just missed you guys. I should've checked here to see that the meeting place had changed. Where were you specifically?

                      To answer your question, at the exit to Meet Mickey. But you knew that, since we ran into you at the castle show! It was great to meet you!

                            What a fantastic idea! I have work harder on winning the lottery so I can fly out there every weekend.

                              Updated the first post - our new meeting spot is the Main Street Cinema, halfway up Main Street (opposite the Emporium)

                              It was too crowded in our Meet Mickey spot.
