In January 2011, AllEars® reached an important milestone – 15 years online!! To thank everyone who has supported us over the years, we decided to have a year long celebration. All Ears has had meets in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, on the Disney Wonder cruise ship, and in New York City. The grand finale of our yearlong anniversary celebration is “A December to Remember”, December 8-11, 2011 — a long weekend full of special events held at various locations in the Walt Disney World Resort.
One week from today is the official beginning of our special celebration — December to Remember
While some events are sold out, many others are open to all – no RSVP necessary. We have lots of new AllEars Trading Cards to hand out and team members now have their own individual cards as well! Be sure to see how many you can collect during December to Remember.
On Thursday December 8th, we focus on the Magic Kingdom/Resort area.
5pm Magic Kingdom. Closing in on almost 10 years, Mike Scopa has hosted his December Dole Whip Meet as a venue for all December guests to meet up, get reacquainted, and just share the joy of Walt Disney World, and of course, that delight know as Dole Whip. Join Mike as he celebrates yet another signature meet at Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle in Adventureland.
Fort Wilderness Holiday Lights Tour! 6:30pm – 8:00pm. – Ft. Wilderness Campground – Hosted by Erin Blackwell. The Fort Wilderness resort’s holiday decorations are becoming famous, featured on the Travel Channel and Orlando Attractions and a favorite with photographers. Now we’re giving a tour of some of the greatest guest displays, ending with watching the Wishes fireworks! It’s a great opportunity to enjoy spirit, the holidays, and the unique community planned by Walt Disney himself.
Meet at Pioneer Hall (where the Hoop Dee Doo is performed) at 6:30pm. We will wait fifteen minutes for everyone to join us while Erin Blackwell gives history and details that make Fort Wilderness unique. This is an easy walking tour, but Erin will also have an electric (golf) cart for up to 5 people to ride if they prefer. And, of course, Fort Wilderness is ECV friendly.
