MouseFest 2003:
8th Annual Holiday RADP Meet at WDW
December 2003

Around the "World" in 8 Days!

Welcome to the meet page for RADP-8! If you are new to RADP, you may be asking yourself, "What is a RADP?" RADP stands for rec.arts.disney.parks -- a Disney parks enthusiast newsgroup where folks all around the world share tips, stories and general information regarding the Disney park experience. We get together once a year to put a face to that poster/friend we met on newsgroup.

The first RADP meet occured in Dec 1996 with about 20 folks (mostly from the Orlando area) and now this has grown to include more than 300 of our newsgroup friends and family from all over the world! Folks come as far away as the United Kingdom, Norway, Japan, Canada, and as close as San Francisco, New Orleans, Chicago, Kansas City, New Hampshire and Tampa. There is no membership requirement. Unless noted, all events are free and open to Disney fans of all ages!

In 2003, for the first time, the RADP Meet will be part of a larger gathering of many Internet communities. "MouseFest 2003" promises to be the biggest party yet! More details about MouseFest 2003.

Host a Meet!
If you would like to host a RADP meet, we would love to add you to the schedule. No experience is necessary. Most meets will practically run themselves. You can opt to host any meet you see on the schedule that doesn't already have a host or you can come up with your very own idea for a meet. Just send the relevant info to radpmeet@kc.rr.com.


Schedule of Meet Events

Please Note: All meet times are subject to change for many reasons including Disney's changing of park hours and show times. During the early meet planning stages, meet listings can be very fluid. Times, dates and even locations can change often. Keep checking back for the latest information! "Official Days" are only to make it easier for folks who are using day passes and not meant to be in any way associated with Disney or its early entry policies.

This listing includes all RADP meets as well as other meets being sponsored by our friends at PassPorter, Disney Dollarless and Our Laughing Place. All meets listed are open to everyone. Some meets do have limits on how many can participate and some require advance reservations and/or payment. These are specified in the meet description of the individual event.

Complimentary pocket guides with listings of all the meets will be available while supplies last at many of the Mousefest 2003 meets. These handy guides are once again being made available through the courtesy of our friends at PassPorter. They also have a downloadable PDF file with all meet listings available for free on their web site. See http://www.passporter.com/gathering.htm. Thank you Jennifer and Dave!

Ultimate Magic Kingdom Touring Plan Record Breaking Attempt
7:00 am @ MK turnstiles (or one hour before Extra Magic Hour if December hours differ)
UPDATE: Only one spot still remains available! The record for completing the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World's Ultimate Magic Kingdom Touring Plan is 41 attractions in 10 hours, 40 minutes by Richard Vosburgh of Hutto, Texas on June 10, 2003.

I am looking for a maximum of five hardy souls to spend the day racing around the Magic Kingdom to experience EVERY open attraction. We will not be stopping for much of anything, except required rest breaks for parades and shows indicated on the touring plan. You must be a Disney resort guest as I will be utilizing Extra Magic Hour.

Please note that this touring plan is not intended for families, first-time visitors to the Magic Kingdom, or for anyone simply wanting a nice day in the Magic Kingdom. Attempting this touring plan is to the Magic Kingdom what the Boston Marathon is to Boston.

The folks at Unofficial Guide will be with us during the day and there will be possible press coverage and some other surprises. Anyone else that would like to tag along through various parts of the day are welcome, but please note that those that have chosen to participate will not wait on anyone!!.

For more details or to sign up, please contact Carol at ckelley@camber.com or clkelley564@knology.net

RADP Epcot Day

3rd Annual Future World Morning Marathon: Journey to the Center of Spaceship Earth
9:00am @ Epcot Future World
This year we'll be trading Spaces. Your Marathon Coordinators are Catherine (cathlam@starpower.net) and Lori (BriarRosie@aol.com)

NON-RIDERS: If you are not interested in participating in the thrill ride portion of our program (legs 1 and 2) but would like to follow the marathon from the beginning, join the Future World Marathon Non-rider Support Group. Non-riders will meet at the Spaceship Earth plaza along with the riders.

Leg 1: Mission: Space Jaunt (hosted by our Space Cadets: Amanda & Dean)
Meet at the plaza in front of Mission: Space (between the two planets) at park opening. We will ride in the standby line, and plan to be getting in line no later than 15 minutes after park opening. Riders will line up and count off so that we may give an accurate count at the ride entrance. Non-riders may opt out from the beginning OR join the group in line and opt out before boarding.

Leg 2: Test Track Drive-Thru (hosts: Catherine & Lori)
Once everyone gets through Mission: Space, the marathon will move over to Test Track, where we will be joining the single riders line. If the single riders line is inoperable, we will either ride standby if time allows or pick up fastpasses for later use.

Leg 3: Spaceship Earth Roulette (hosts: Catherine & Lori)
To help accommodate those who do not wish to ride Mission:Space or Test Track, we will meet at the Epcot Tip Board (behind Spaceship Earth) prior to this leg. We plan to be getting in line for the ride at approximately 10:45 AM, so be at the tip board before 10:30 to make your scene choices (we may be there earlier if the first two legs take less time than anticipated, but we will not leave to board the ride until 10:45). Spaceship Earth has been divided into 27 separate scenes. Choose the scene your hosts will be seated beside when the ride stops. The person choosing the correct scene will receive a Disney-related prize. Due to heightened interest in this meet, we will bring along an extra guess sheet to allow a total of 54 guesses, so there will possibly be two guesses for the winning scene and two prizes awarded. We will not take down any scene choices until we arrive at the tip board.

Leg 4: Ice Station Cool-Down (host & participant: Lori)
Walk to Ice Station Cool after awarding of Spaceship Earth prizes. If you wish, take the Beverly Chugging Challenge, a test of endurance and carbonation. Last person standing wins a prize.

THE MARATHON IS SCHEDULED TO END BEFORE NOON.

Contestants and audience welcome! Please RSVP so I have an idea of how many victim... er... participants are planning to attend!
