Geeked For Geekdom

Disney's Human Element - Geeked For Geekdom (by Scott Smith (SRisonS))

I can't help but to be reminded of the hilarious meeting of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog & Star Wars Nerds ;)

For almost every year since 1997, the Star Wars faithful have traveled to Disney's Hollywood/MGM Studios to celebrate their love for that glorious franchise. Only the craziest of craziest (and me) get there before the break of day, for the chance to acquire exclusive merchandise, or those highly sought after autographs.

You are looking at the early arrivals for the merchandise line. This was taken at 5:24 AM, from my 4:00 AM arriving spot in the Temuera Morrison autograph line. Hey... I gotta get it all out before the baby comes. ;) .... excuses, excuses

Familiar Strangers

Disney's Human Element - Familiar Strangers (by Scott Smith (SRisonS))

Disney is the new Center of the Universe!!!! HA HA!!!!

Where else in the World do familiar strangers actually plan trips to meet in person!?!?! .... Or just plan to meet after already booking their vacation!?!?! It's Florida... It's Fun... It's Sun... It's Fun IN the Sun... It's finally meeting others who share the same passion as you. Whether at a Disney park, or on a Disney Cruise (Go B.O.B.'ers!!!), strangers from all over will congregate for the Love of Disney!!!!

Game Face

Disney's Human Element - Game Face (by Scott Smith (SRisonS))

"Terrified... mortified... petrified... stupefied... by you."
- Russell Crowe as John Nash in "A Beautiful Mind"

As happy-go-lucky as most Cast Members are, they definitely know when to bring out their game face. When it comes to crowd control, safety, or other serious situations; the job is no laughing matter. >:-[

Flag Retreat

Disney's Human Element - Flag Retreat (by Scott Smith (SRisonS))

The Flag Retreat is performed daily at 5:00 PM, at the Magic Kingdom. This ceremony includes members of Disney Security, The Main Street Philharmonic marching band, The Dapper Dans barbershop quartet.... and of course, a park guest!!!!!! Anyone can sign-up to participate, but Veterans are definitely preferred.

This was the first time I've ever witnessed this ceremony. And I must say, Disney does a spectacular job; and they take this very seriously. So if you're anywhere near Main Street at 5:00, I'd suggest you check it out. :)
