A LARGE gathering of Social Media Addicted Disneyphile Friends is about to take place at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. On Twitter we will be hastagging it #EpicOctober2010 (props to Charles Aguillon for picking this name and dating it since we know there will be more of these in the coming years). The festivities will span the dates of September 30th to October 4th, 2010.  The trip started as a vision to get a ton of online Disney Community Friends together in one place at the same time and take part in some of the festivities surrounding the Epcot Food & Wine Festival as well as the Inaugural Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend, specifically the Mickey’s Halloween Family Fun Run 5K.  There was a Food & Wine Festival 5K Group started on Facebook but not everyone is going to run the race so I thought I would compile a list of everyone who will be there for these EPIC Five days! If you’d like to register for the 5K please hurry! The race is already 80% Full as of the writing. NOW 98% FULL!!! Hurry! You can register here at

If I have left anyone out…I am so so sorry. Please email me at with your info and I will add you in. Also…if I missed an event please let me know so I can add it to the list. You can also Twitter or Facebook me as I am BAD about checking email.

We are a really FUN group and we welcome any other Disney NUTS like us to come on and join the fun! Can’t wait to see you there!

Here is a tentative schedule of what is going on…

Thursday September 30th, 2010

  • 1pm to 8pm Food and Wine Festival Soft Opening/Cast Member Preview
  • 5pm La Cava del Tequila #TikToc Tweet Up Epcot Mexico

    Hey Tinney,

    Where did you get those names? Did you pull them off the group site? Because a lot of these people AREN'T coming:

    Not everyone in the group is attending. Those are the ones I see off the top of my head.
