Complete Video Recap of The Dark Side of Disney Party!

Well, I finally finished editing and uploading all of the video I took at The Dark Side of Disney Party on 11/11/11, and I’m putting them all here for your viewing enjoyment!

First up is the video that started it all: the Call For Entries! Yes, I was really naked with Draven Star in this video. I’m awesome.

And the logical follow-up to this video is our grand prize winner, Ron Bidnez, claiming his kick-ass prizes!

Hoot and Chief from Mesa Verde Times showed up early and gave a few of us a look into the contents of Chief’s Backpack of Awesomeness:

Here are a bunch of random “fly on the wall” bits and pieces from the party. Everyone was having a great time, as you’ll see!

Hoot Gibson was pounding beers all night (he showed up with a 4-pack of PBR 40s, one already half-finished) and I felt it necessary to document his Journey Into Inebriation, which culminated in a nude romp around the townhome:

And finally, a montage of stories from Ron “Dreamfinder” Schneider, who showed up right around 7PM and left at 2:30AM, leading a singalong of a “One Little Spark”/”It’s a Small World” medley as he walked out the door.

All in all, it was an amazing evening. Everyone had a great time, many awesome stories were told (I feel bad I couldn’t capture them all), nobody got into a fight, puked, or broke anything, and everyone left with some cool schwag courtesy of DSoD, MikeB, Brett from WDWFanBoys, and Hoot and Chief.

Looking forward to doing it all again next year, possibly on/near 10/1/2012, which is the 30th Anniversary of EPCOT Center! If you’d like to be on the guest list, now is the time to let me know!

Thanks again to everyone who attended:

-Ron “Dreamfinder” Schneider
-Hoot and Chief from Mesa Verde Times
-Model and Disney uber-nerd Draven Star
-Brett from
-Dana from
-Lindsay from
-Ron Bidnez, our contest winner
-Hadley’s Hope, with Kyle leading the singalong on guitar!

    I’ve read Our Kingdom of Dust and I have Dreamfinder queued up next- will that score me an invite? :D

      Thanks for supporting the books, Wendy! If we were having another one this year, you’d definitely be on the list. But we’re going to have a variety of meet-ups and activities during EPCOT’s 30th instead. I’ll be updating my Facebook page with details as the dates draw nearer.
