MagicMeets.com - Northeast Disney Fan Meet!
Sayreville, NJ., November 18, 2006 — The group responsible for organizing the largest annual gathering of Walt Disney World internet fans in the United States' Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions has changed its name — DisMeets.com is now MagicMeets.com.
"This change establishes our identity as separate from other Disney fan organizations," notes MagicMeets.com founder Fred Block. "We want people to know that we welcome ALL Disney fans no matter where they're from. We initially appealed to Disney enthusiasts who were part of various internet groups, or "communities," but now we'd like every Disney fan to know that they are welcome to our Northeast Disney Fans Gathering."
Attendance at the annual gathering has grown rapidly in just three short years. In 2004, the first get-together was held in Edison, NJ and was attended by just 44 people. By the following year, word had spread about the gathering, and the meet moved to a larger venue in Allentown, Pa., so that it could host 170 attendees. This past summer, the third annual MagicMeets.com event had more than 350 participants — in fact, more than 100 people were turned away due to space limitations.
This coming summer, MagicMeets.com's fourth get-together is poised to be its biggest and best gathering yet. A new venue with facilities to accommodate a larger group is being located, and the event details should be announced soon. This year’s Northeast Disney Fans Gathering will again feature a full day of activities, including special guest speakers, contests, breakout session seminars, a kids’ play area, door prizes, and pin trading, as well as plenty of time for conversation over a relaxing meal. In addition to their special presentations, each speaker will also be available for personal chats with attendees at tables set up in the main hall.
"We may have changed our name to MagicMeets.com, but our goal remains the same as it has always been," Block says, "and that is to help Disney fans meet other Disney fans, so we can share the magic that Walt Disney World holds for all of us."
