Well, MagicMeets is approaching and things are happening. I’m sure that Fred Block and crew are busy putting together what will no doubt be yet another magical weekend for those lucky enough to attend the 5th Annual MagicMeets.

I will be there hosting two special sessions we’re calling “MagicTunes“ in which participants will be given an opportunity to show off their Disney sound bite knowledge.

I’m working hard with Mike Newell of MouseWorldRadio and Trent Schwartz of DISfriends in putting together a list of “bites” and clues.

We will be doing a special “Celebrity MagicTunes” session on Friday night and then a regular session on Saturday afternoon.

This should be a fun time for all who attend and participate. So how is your Disney sound bite knowledge?

Also happening this year at MagicMeets is an “Experts Panel“ made up of people who are there to answer any questions people may have.

If you happen to be at MagicMeets you can ask the panel your question there. This is a great opportunity to get that special question answered by some Disney knowledgeable folks.

Who will be on that panel?

AllEars.Net’s own Deb Wills and yours truly as well as’s Dave Marx, the Unofficial Guide’s Len Testa, WDWRADIO’s Lou Mongello, and Mouse Fan Travel’s Beci Mahnken. The discussion will be broadcast live on MouseWorld Radio!

Of course the WDWTODAY Podcast team will be there and we are planning to do a LIVE podcast during Saturday’s events, including this panel discussion as well as interviews, and a few surprises. If you were listening last year you may have heard Beci Mahnken surprise a guest with a special “dream” so you never know what will happen during a live podcast.

During the WDWToday Show live podcast we’ll be encouraging our listeners to make a donation to Lou Mongello’s Disney World Trivia Dream Team Ptoject at the Disney World Trivia Dream Team Site.

All donations made between 9:15 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. on July 19th will be counted towards the auction total! So please help out – giving will bring Disney smiles to you and a little Disney magic to the lives of the children who need it most.

Thank you so very much for your support.

On Sunday morning at MagicMeets Weekend I will be holding a breakout session that talks about the special parties at The Magic Kingdom. In this session I will talk about the preparation and planning required to fully enjoy the parties and will talk specifically on how to tour each party. You do Mickey’s Pirate and Princess Party somewhat differently than you do Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party.

I hope to help all those who have never attended any of these parties. These are separated ticketed events and everyone should be as best prepared to get the best out of their time and money on those evenings.

So it will be an exciting weekend and oh yes I plan to be blogging that weekend as well.

MagicMeets is always one of the highlights of my year and I KNOW there will be some smiling and happy faces that weekend and that’s what it’s all about.

Here is my report from the 2007 Magic Meets!
