That is a grrreat article! Thanx for posting it.
I think Uncle Walt would be very happy. I try to talk to as many persons as I can while at WDW, or anyplace else for that matter, but that's probably because I am a shy person, like many actors and performers.
My DW is always commenting about how I have no fear of talking to strangers, except for the salespeople, or the missionaries, at the front door.
As for the Internet thing, I am really new to this, as DWT was the first place I really had the nerve to chat almost 1 year ago, even though I have had Internet access for 10 years or so. I always had the feeling that there were indeed a lot of scary people, who I would not want to ever meet, using chat rooms for whatever purpose. However, I have changed my mind--sort of. While I would like to meet as many members of DWT as possible, I am still a little wary of the "let's hang out" for a day or so thing. I guess I get that from my parents, who to this day still tell me not to trust anyone you don't know, and only trust the ones you do know very little. A chit chat at the parks, or maybe a meal, but no long term relationships for me. That's just the way I am.
