Boy Meets World Cast

Post by luiginyc84 » August 25th, 2018, 2:07 pm

Attended Wizard World Chicago yesterday. The two main reasons for me going were the Boy Meets World Cast and Batista. Turns out Batista cancelled a few weeks back. He was Saturday only and the only reason I was gonna stay through Saturday. With him cancelling(and Henry Winkler cancelled as well who I keep passing on) there was no need for me to stay the extra day. So i decided to turn it into a day trip(my father works for United so my travel is much more flexible as I fly standby and can try for whichever flight I want. Honestly the only reason I do so many out of state trips. Would never do that many if I had to pay full fare)

I was able to get on the 9:30am flight with the hour time difference got into Chicago 10:30am local time. Waited for the hotel shuttle for the Doubletree which I usually stay at for this event which is directly across the street from the Convention Center. The guy never asks or verifies if you stay at the hotel or not so I figured why not get a free ride instead of probably spending $10 on a cab or uber. Its less than a 10 min ride. Registration to pick up admission started at 11am and doors opened at 12 noon. Knowing the layout from previous years I headed over to the photo op area right away to get an idea of what the wait my be like for the Boy Meets World Group Shot which is what I got. It consisted of Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, Ryder Strong & Will Friedle. It was scheduled for 1:15pm.

There was barely anyone waiting around the area like they normally do so I decided to walk around and look for anything worth buying. Came back around 12:45 and still only a handful of people. So I walked over to where the wrestlers booths were not far from the photo op area. They were all together and in order you had Enzo Amore, Mick Foley, Christian, Road Warrior Animal, Nasty Boys, Billy Gunn and Tommy Dreamer. For the few hours I was there only Enzo and Foley had a short line. I didnt see Christian there at all. Billy Gunn was walking around alot.

I went back at 1pm and they started lining people up for the Group Shot. There was only about 15-20 people lined up when I joined in. It did grow to a decent size, but not what I thought it would. Maybe today since its Saturday it will be larger. Started right on time ran like a normal "Pro Photo Op" line does. Quick and smooth. Got up to them. Quick interaction and took the photo. It was arranged with 2 on each side of you which is what I hoped. I thought they might possibly do 2 seated and you stand behind those 2 with the other 2 alongside you. I was kind of surprised at how small all of them were. Especially Will Friedle.

I picked up my photo and the redeemed the digital copy as well. After that checked out the rest of the merch for sale and came close to buying some old toys but held off. Left the convention center at around 2:30pm and headed back across the street to the Doubletree and picked up the free shuttle again back to the airport. They make a pickup at another Hilton around the block and got to the airport at about 3pm. Breezed through security and was able to get on the 4pm flight. Got one of the last seats as it was a full flight. With the hour time difference landed back in NY a little before 7pm and was home by 7:30pm. Only negative was I completely forgot about Ernie Hudson who I wanted to get. There will definitely by other chances for him though.

For some reason they canceled the Ben/Danielle duo. Looking at this...wondering if they have beef. You would think those 2 would be next to one another.

I did notice under the Photo Op times their dual op was cancelled. Was wondering about that. Also I saw a video during the panel they did and they were seated on separate couches. Savage was with Friedle and Fishel was with Strong. Interesting

The video from WW showed them apart too. But DJ got his op and he has Ben on one side and Danielle on the other. So not sure.

Fishel posted this pic online so I dont know. It might have been just Wizard World trying to make more money on the group shot.

Yea...I noticed they had a note by the photo op line that the dual op was cancelled. This was right after doors opened to. Its weird considering there was not a big turnout at all for them on Friday. I think they did Fishel Friedle and Strong solo ops BEFORE the Group Shot and then Savage solo shots were after.

Good luck with that. Op was cancelled by the talent/agent. Certainly seems like something happened between Ben & Danielle despite the public photos used to promote the event.

Still attempting to work with Wizard on their issues over the weekend.


Op came out nice on your end. Thankfully you had a nice easy day.

I see no way the dual op won't happen at NYCC. Great stuff man, though your photo isn't showing up now.
