Went to my very first meet-up today! :) There were so many MWers and everyone was very nice and welcoming! I get very shy and quiet around people I don't know, but so many people came up and introduced themselves. I wanna thank TeacherCraig for convincing me to go when I was too nervous to, and also for sharing her 'Winner Winner Chicken Dinner' with me. You are awesome! And also, Happy Birthday Steve! It was very nice meeting everyone and I hope to see you all again. Good night MW!

I am the same way. I would love to do a meet up but am way too shy. When we were there in July there was a meet up right in front of us at POTC and I stood from a distance watching. - Ldgsg  213.9 #1823 3:21PM
Yup, I had seen some from a distance too but didn't have the guts to approach the group. - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:16PM
I can't wait to go to a meet up to meet MWers. Little nervous if I do, but excited at the same time. - USCVivian  193.6 #2074 12:55AM
That is how I felt! My tummy even started doing flip-flops right before the meet-up. But they are so nice. And they are all super FUNNY! :) - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 12:59AM
Hopefully we will meet each one day and show me the ropes. ;) - USCVivian  193.6 #2074 1:01AM
LOL! Sure, of course! We'll be the newbies to the group. :) - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:17PM
Awesome! Can't wait. - USCVivian  193.6 #2074 9:10PM
Awesome! Can't wait. - USCVivian  193.6 #2074 9:10PM

It was very nice meeting you tonight! πŸ‘‹πŸ˜ - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #120 1:17AM
Nice meeting you too! - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:25PM
I was there with a blonde punk sitting on my shoulders...but I seemed to have missed you. Meet ups are fun and can be overwhelming with such a large group. Glad you decided to attend...the next one will be easier! And welcome to MouseWait - SergZak  3125.8 #43 1:28AM
Thanks! I actually did see you with the little one on your shoulders. But like you said, it was a big group and a little overwhelming. - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:18PM
It was so nice to meet you!! - Willierose  2348.6 #67 1:41AM

I think I'd be to shy. ☺ - dumbbunny  627.2 #324 1:44AM
We should have our own "shy MWers" get-together! Hahaha! - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:26PM
So nice meeting you and TeacherCraig! Glad she convinced you to come to the meet up! - rbeezy  703.0 #275 1:45AM

We all felt the same way. Glad you went! - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 9:20AM
Thank you! - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:21PM
I felt the same way before my first meet up, still feel a little shy around MWers I haven't met yet. MWers are great though, always make you feel welcome! - LBChica  2437.4 #59 9:28AM
Yes, it can be a little intimidating. But I hope it gets easier and I get to know the group a little better. :) - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:28PM
It was very nice meeting you and thank you again for the awesome pin! Please don't hesitate to come around more.. Would love to hang out with you! - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 2:29PM
You're very welcome. Hope you enjoyed your day. And thanks, I hope to see you again soon! :) - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:23PM

I've only to been to one meet up. I sort of stumbled through the whole.. "hi you don't know me, but I'm a mousewaiter too" introduction. Then I felt like I had nothing else to chat about and my hubby and I ran off to get on another ride. lol.. baby steps. - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 4:42PM
I'm can be really socially awkward, lol. - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 4:42PM
Sometimes it's hard at first because lots of MWers already know each other. Stick around next time, go on a few rides, and chat. You'll meet some great people! - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 4:48PM
I did the same thing. One day I will try again and stay put. - michmyers85  32.3 #5762 5:42PM
Hahaha! That was kinda how I was! Like Mimmy said, it's hard because so many MWers already know each other so well. So they were all standing around talking and I just kinda stood there. And I used that same introduction! LOL! I kept saying "You don't know me but...". But everyone was very understanding and once they knew I was a newbie, they tried to come over and chat or introduce me to someone else. I had a good time. I wanted to go get on the rides with them, but I had an early work day today. :/ Hopefully next time you can join in and we can meet also! :D - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:36PM
This Monday's meet up seems to be for quite a few first timers. Would love for all of you to join! It's held by LittleAprilShowers at the Jungle Cruise at 7:30. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 8:27PM
I will try to make it! - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:41PM
Yay! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 9:16PM
Ive yet to go to one  Next time hopefully.. Glad you had fun - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 8:28PM
Thanks! Yes, hope you can make it soon! - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:42PM
Glad to I am not the only MWer that's shaky about a first meet up. My hubs and I have passed the porch several times while people were sitting there. We kept asking each other should we? But never have! I've been trying to build up the courage. Have decided the big BD Bash will be it! Pretty excited actually. - fvbmermaid  237.8 #1498 8:33PM
Aww, YAY! Glad you've made up your mind to go! I don't think I'll be able to make it to the BDay bash :'( due to work. But hopefully you have a great time! - MariFICENT  170.6 #2398 8:45PM
