I hope you all don't mind a dumb question... How do you meet up with other MW'ers? It seems to be common knowledge among high scorers, but I still haven't quite figured it out. Is there some kind of button I'm missing? Everyone seems to know everybody else, but I have yet to meet anyone. Just a little confused, is all.

Everyone had their first meet up, and knew pretty much NO ONE. When you're a newcomer, and you go to your first meet up, it can be a little intimidating because it seems like everyone knows everyone except you - but sometimes, that's not true - many people don't know others, but are very friendly and welcoming - and that's where the friendships start. Sometimes searching for meet ups for that day would be cool.. or maybe even starting your own meet up. But it's always nice to meet MWers, and through that one (or few), you meet more, and that's how it would seem that everyone knows everyone. TIP: When you're at a meet up, don't be shy to introduce yourself to those you don't know - the whole point of meet ups is to enjoy it with Disney friends, and MAKE Disney friends - we all know that is what it's for - so the initial introduction is less awkward than it would be randomly on the street. TIP: IF you see someone who looks lost or alone at their maybe first meet up - say hi and be the one to introduce yourself - make them feel welcome, and more friendships can be made... if all else fails, just creepily DM people at random. (just kidding on that last one O_o) - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 2:52PM
i dont remember have i met you? - pikarich  5231.5 #22 2:58PM
Well said! Everyone was so nice yesterday and I got lots of hugs when I left! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 3:02PM
jk , another way is to follow mw in the my feed feature if you like what they post or comment and after a while you start to remember faces.we were in line for haunted mansion and thmaimf was in line on sat and i recognized her from her post even though we had never meet her until then.also do in park rak and have mw find you also works - pikarich  5231.5 #22 3:06PM
Well said! - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 3:07PM
Well said. - BCC  4783.2 #27 4:50PM
You have to bring a sacrificial goat, a long black cloak, and try the cool aid! 😜Joking. But just keep a look out in the lounge for meet ups or in park RAKs! They're posted almost daily and very fun to go to! You've probably even met some already! Just sitting on a bench on BVS I started talking to a lady next to me, asked her if she knew about MW, turns out she's got an account!(: we're everywhere and super friendly! Also, there's a 'meet up land' that had daily updates of the meet ups happening that day! Hope you meet some people soon(: - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #125 2:18PM
Excellent response! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 2:21PM
*gasp* not my little goats from BTR! - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 2:30PM
It's the street term for goat effect. - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #125 2:43PM

Best way to meet other MWers is to attend a MW meetup. Many are planned at night usually at Astro Blasters - BaseballMickey_CM  7598.9 #11 2:16PM
Do a search for meet up land to see if there are any scheduled. Or schedule one. A lot of the people who meet up with others are in the park almost all the time and have made friends with other MWs over the the last few years. Best suggestion is to comment on posts and add quality content. Let everyone get to know you. - CinderellasMom  264.5 #1220 2:20PM
Yes! Meetups and friendships go hand in hand - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 2:30PM
I didn't meet anyone until about 8 months and then finally started attneding some meetups, which seems to be the best way. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 2:21PM
I've been here less than two months and went to yesterdays POTC meet up. Dive right in the deep end, it's fun! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 2:27PM
I think I remember meeting you. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 2:32PM

If you see ScooterMike, be sure to say hi to him for me. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 3:07PM
I said hi to you but not him. Wait maybe it was him but not you! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 3:26PM
I'm the better looking one. That's how you can tell. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 3:27PM
or download the locatescootermike app and you will find him everytime.scootermike,stitchlegacy,rickchavez and spaceraynfer combine are in the parks 24/7 - pikarich  5231.5 #22 3:28PM
I was only on here for about a week and posted a pic of my wife in her belle costume and mrsStrawberryguy recognized us at DL. Turns out the strawberries are pretty cool people and most MW are too. - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 3:10PM

🎢'Cos there's just an empty space🎢 - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 3:22PM
It all started with one meet up and pretty soon you walk through the parks waving, hugging, and chatting with cm, friends and so many friends you know - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 4:17PM
^this.arsha was the very first MWer that we met. She actually spotted us first and approached us. She was so sweet and kind. It really made my day. She later in the day, introduced us to other MWers at the birthday of DL meetup in July. And now we bump into people all the time when we are at the park. - dimplesdanie  1236.9 #138 4:50PM

Well put Marsha :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7895.6 #10 4:55PM
You walk up to them, give them a hug, and you're in the club. It's as simple as that. - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 4:53PM
