The dealer room was amazing. What a great group of vendors gathered in one place. The room was packed with magicians from everywhere. This was a great start to the convention.

Incredible stuff!

That is why I love working for the mouse. That sign says it all. I like to think I have been creating magicial experiences for 27 years. I hope everyone visiting Orlando will stop by one of great theme parks. :)

The Thursday schedule was amazing. All the Orlando magicians were talking about all the celebrity magicians that have showed up just to attend the convention. Joshua Jay, Steve Cohen, Daryl, Michael Ammar, Shin Lin and so many more that I can't remember. This convention is amazing. Did you spot any other celebrity magicians?

Shin Lin was a celebrity to the younger crowd. He was creating quite a buzz at small card sessions outside the convention rooms.

I laughed so hard at Rob Zabrecky's parlor act it hurt. Chad Long's act was also non-stop laughs.

I really liked all the parlor acts.

I think the best parlour show at a convention ever.

Zabrecky was ridiculously good. Amazing. I tried to explain it to my fiancee on the phone. "He was crazy, danced badly and drew on his face with a sharpie! It was brilliant"

I don't think she got it.

Maybe one of you guys could say something really awful about the convention so I won't feel so bad about not being there. :(

Food service at the hotel bar and restaurant was slow. That help, Bill?

I've been gone and missed quite a few threads: I realize I'll be reading about this great convention in Genii, but is anyone currently posting detailed daily reports on what's going on?
(My apologizes if this question has already been asked and answered)

Chad Long is ALWAYS funny, I love watching him.

Zabrecky is a stroke of genius. I laughed, I cringed, I gasped, I just shook my head unbelieving. Thank you Richard for bringing some Zabrecky into my life, can't wait to see him again.

Too exhausted. Hard to write. No, erdnasephile, there have not been many posts. Many tired people. Happy. Now waiting with Japanese magicians at Universal Studios Halloween Nights. 55 minute wait to see Penn & Teller attraction, 'Newked Las Vegas'. Magic light in sky. Wow. Spaceship to International Station makes long wait OK. Genii Birthday Bash brings happy magic for all.
