    I thought this was a free event, and I could go since I live an hour away from the city... BUT FOR D23 MEMBERS ONLY? Well, that's bad! I guess it's so they avoid stampedes like that Justin Bieber incident years ago? Or maybe it's for mature fans only?

    Uhh no it's probably part of being an exclusive member.

    Well, it's becuase they want you to pay to become a member. If they keep having cool events like this, people will most probably join becuase they are member exclusives.

    Oh..so that's how it was done. So I see there was no official way to meet Steve and Bill in person too. But this is really cool anyway, was everyone able to take a picture with Kermit and Pepe?

    Man if I lived close enough to NYC I would've gotten a membership so fast!! But alas I live 5-6 hours away. >< The Muppets sure know how to take NYC! :)

    It was pretty cool. Not bad for 5 bucks. They had trivia and I won a Kermit/Steve Whitmire signed Kermit Plush. Ill post pics if you guys want... Ran into Steve and Bill briefly.

    Also posted a video of my interaction with Kermit and Pepe.. It's kind of a bad video because I took it on the fly..

    So cool! :D I'm an Anthony too, so now I know what it sounds like for Kermit to say my name, AWESOME!!
    :)
    Thanks for sharing man, that was the best.

    Was there any kind of speech or Q & A? Any hints on the upcoming movie, more merchandise, any little tidbit Disney might've let them share? Ha ha, always on the hunt for Muppet news. ;)

    It never fails..... I always miss the best Muppet opportunities because I don't live in LA or NYC. To be honest, if ever came face to face with Kermit I would probably breakdown. lol
