Let's try and get this meet back on. Any DISers in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area interested in meeting in late May at the National Zoo?

I was the original one to post on this but it got deleted b/c supposedly "Meet the Fockers" should not be referred to in a post. Even if people ARE just kidding.:confused3 I personally think the whole thing is ridiculous. Anyway- we never decided on an exact date/time. I just said late May/ National Zoo... Should we nail down specifics?

Let me know a date and I'll try to get there. I'll go early, but can meet up with the group whenever (I'll have my kids at least and maybe my husband)The weekend of the 26th is memorial day, so we should stear away from that (it'll be mobbed).

I'd like to come.... I'm a FONZ member so free parking:yay:

i think i can still get a couple kids free popcorn too...

(My dd's is too old and all they'd have to do is stand with me in line)

Weekend of 12/13th is Mother's day weekend so that'll be mob too...

What about the 19th or 20th?

Why don't we piggyback on the plans you already have. No sense in trying to make two meetings. The more the merrier in one meeting. What are the deatils on your plans?

There actually aren't any yet, so we will plan from here. LaraK is already posting here with you guys and she is one of them. I will send the others over.

I think the weekend of May 19th makes the most sense really. With the one before and after being holidays...Mothers Day and Memorial Day.

I just moved to the Columbia area when I transfered from Panama to Fort Meade in 1995. Since my daughter was a junior at Oakland Mills High when it came time to retire in 1998, we opted to stay here. We now live off 108 right near where they are plowing that last farm under.

I vote for May 19 for our meet at the zoo. It is not only in between the holidays and probably good weather, but it's the week after my WDW trip and I will still be high on Disney ... but a bit depressed about being back.

Marshay

How about meeting at the food court area across from the panda bears? This is called Panda Pavilion and is centrally located in the zoo, between parking lots A and B. This has lots of picnic tables, is a large contained area and has a small play area for kids to run around. Restrooms are also close by.

I say we meet at the BOTTOM, near the lion/tiger hill actually. There is a ton of parking down there for one thing. Up at the top, near the Panda's there isn't much at all. Many of us might end up near that bottom area, and it would suck to have to walk all the way up that blasted hill to meet everyone, just to have to walk back down again. At least down at the bottom...which I call the Main Entrance..since it has the sign and all, we will all walk up, then by the end when we are dead tired, we just have to walk down the hill to our cars!

Parking Lot C, for those that aren't familier, is NOT a good parking lot at all!!! It is on the other side of the busy road and then you walk up so super steep steps to get into the zoo.

Marshay
04-07-2007, 07:37 PM
Doesn't matter where we meet but these were my thoughts:

The panda pavilion is much closer to the new asia trail. I HIGHLY recommend hitting the Asia Trail first thing as this gets more crowded (since it is new) and the animals will be more active in the morning than in the afternoon.

If you wait to meet everyone at the bottom and work your way up the trail, you won't get to it until late morning or afternoon. Also for those who can't walk right up the entire hill, the panda pavilion is a 1/2 way point, so you aren't walking up the entire hill at once, like you would if you meet at the bottom and go straight to the asia trail.

I've never had a problem with parking on a weekday (maybe a Friday and definitely a weekend) but since we are talking about a Monday, I don't foresee parking to be a problem. Schools are still in session and most people are waiting until later to vacation in DC.

Ok, 'nuf said. You heard my reasons.

MHO.

MemoryMakers2669
04-07-2007, 07:48 PM
OH, I thought we were meeting on a Saturday!?

And if we pick the opening time or slightly before, parking at that top (Panda house) won't be much of an issue. But anything after that and we will be spread all over the place. Having to park at the bottom...Lions/Tigers, and having to walk passed half the park just to get the meeting place won't be fun.

We could just meet at say, 11:00am at the Food Area, and actually get lunch and do the meet there. That way everyone can arrive when they want, etc and not be stressed about traffic, where they are parked.

Meeting for lunch is great! I prob won't end up eating until closer to noon but we can arrive earlier to stake out seats and chat!

So did you still want to meet at the panda area or down by the tigers, since we are talking a lunchtime meet? I think the panda one would be more centrally located but the tiger one also puts you in a great area for the kid farm (which my DD loves).

I go to the Zoo once a week or once every other week... Never on the weekend, but USUALLY you can't really choose where you park...Just depends on lot availability. I don't care where we meet- I could use the exercise :goodvibes Panda Pavilion is fine by me...free snacks!!!:thumbsup2

Oh, the Panda area is absolutely the best area I agree! I am just lazy about that place and hate when I get stuck parking at the bottom and have to hoof it to the top to meet someone...done that before!

So it looks like Saturday, May 19, 11 a.m. at the Panda Pavillion is a go. If you are talking on any other Maryland meeting threads, please pass this along.

Also, if everyone wears something lime green (or our Focker lanyards), or something Disney, we should not have a hard time meeting up. I will probably bring Disney photos to bore you all with since I will have just retuned from my May 5-13 WDW vacation. :cool1: :cool1: :cool1:

What is the cost of parking and admission?

Admission is free, but I don't know what parking costs now. Here's the zoo website. http://nationalzoo.si.edu/

Here's the parking section:
Parking:

Parking at the Zoo costs $4 for the first hour, $12 for two to three hours, and $16 for more than three hours, but is free for FONZ members. Every dollar you spend at the Zoo—for parking, food, and gifts—supports our education, research, and conservation efforts.
Please note: The Zoo is a popular destination, and lots fill early in the day during spring break and summer, so we encourage you to take the Metro or arrive by 9:30 (animals are more active early in the day). We are located in a city, and there is not a lot of street parking in the neighborhood.

We've been FONZ members for a few years now....

We go down to the zoo a couple times during the year and you can get free admission at other reciprical zoos for up to 4 people.

My dsis lives in Philly so we go down to the Philadelphia Zoo sometimes. (Gate price there is over $10 each person)

And the money helps the zoo...

Individual membership is $40; household is $55 (which is what i have)

I know this is off topic, but I just had to share. I was in the lunch room at work today just reading my book, eating my lunch and minding my own business. The ladies at the table next to me started talking about WDW and my ears perked up. What they said really got me going (in my head). They were talking about how great some of the amusement parks in Pa. are but how much they hated WDW. How can that possbily be? I sat stewing and stewing and just couldn't stand it anymore. I had to turn around, apologize for butting in and asked "How can anyone who likes amusement parks not like WDW?" They said WDW was just too hot, too crowded and way too any kids. What?????? I had to give my pitch on going at a better time of year ... yadda, yadda, yadda. I managed to change all but one of their minds. I guess I did my Disney duty for the day. :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

I wasn't on the Boards 2 years ago, so that would explain why I didn't know about this. I've only been posting here for maybe 18 months.

And 2 years is a long time. The meet in Frederick was last fall (if I remember right), and now the DC meet is about 6-7 months later. How about a VA meet in the late summer or early fall? I would love to get to meet some local DISers, but I keep missing my chances. The Frederick meet was a bit far for me to drive, especially since I would likely have been returning home after dark on some roads I don't know very well, and the day of the DC zoo meet is the same one my son graduates college.

Tysons would have been very do-able for me so its a shame I didn't know about that get-together.

Sorry you are going to miss the meet Tink.

I don't get down to VA too often but my DH and i love to go picnic at Gravely Point. (the park just north of National airport where you can watch the planes land.) We usually do that once or twice a year (Dis dogs could come too) but it's been too cold so far. Hoping for better weather soon.

We also go to the Leesburg area (and over to Sterling for "Wegman's" trip. Their subs are awesome.)

I'm sorry too about missing the zoo meet, but I think my son sort of expects me to show up for his big day. :thumbsup2

I know what you mean about getting to a neighboring State; I don't get to MD very often, myself.

Gravely Point is a lovely place. I haven't been there in a while, but every day when I commute to and from work across 14th Street, I love to watch the planes coming in low over us.

Oh, and Wegman's - what can I say? I go to the one in Fairfax at least once a month. I'm hoping they will have their strawberry/rhubard pies available soon. They are WONDERFUL!

I have never "switched" between lines before myself but.....

I would assume you swipe card when you get on in VA and then you don't swipe again until you get off at Woodley Park...

I think the fare system knows you transferred and calculates accordingly...

I used the metro fare calculator and it says you will be paying $2.35 each way. (reduced fare for weekend) and it should take 42 minutes.

You can buy a card for the full round trip fare at start of your trip or add to existing card.

But if you are stopping other places on the way back you may want to pay for an unlimited day pass for $6.50.

check the board at the station and it will tell you how much your fee will be. Then either buy a ticket for that amount or buy double that to include your return trip. Then all you do is swipe it on your way in and again on your way out. You won't need to swipe to change lines. You should not need to pay for parking on a weekend, but I would recommend checking.

I just found this thread. I live in northeastern Maryland in Cecil County. But my 2 kids are both at University of Maryland at College Park, so I know the area. Unfortunately I will be in CT on that weekend. Someday I will make a meet.

Oh man... I just found this thread , I live in Va beach but my dad lives in D.C. and we have never been to the zoo so this would have been perfect, except for the three ball games we have on Saturday:upsidedow oh and that fact that my dad will be here this weekend. Oh well it would have been cool, I will have to keep my eyes open for another MD/DC/VA meet. :thumbsup2

Hey, guys...let's hope the weather forecast is wrong...I just saw thunderstorms for Sat and Sun....

I'm still planning on going if the weather is sunny/not raining. I don't want to deal with a wet, cranky 22 mo old at the zoo...

I'll update my post again tomorrow night once.

I'd be up for a weekday meet sometime esp. if SAturday is a bust. I'm a SAHM , so my weekday schedule is more flexible than my weekends....:yay:

Me too! :thumbsup2 Sometimes it seems I have greater flexability M-F than when I have to involve the DH on w/e!!

DH has already said that if the weather is bad by us that we are not going b/c we have a 2 1/2 - 3 hr drive.

If this weekend falls through, what about a nice park or something were we can all bring a covered dish and picnic together??? :confused3

I'm grasping a straws here!! ;) Because I so very much wanted to meet you all (as if you couldn't tell)

LaraK

Yeah...if it's rotten weather, we will not be going either. I can't think of any good indoor alternatives either

Ladies and Gents,

I am afraid that this weekend might be a bust for my family. The front off the coast is bringing the heavy rains. We will not be going but for those who do live near by, by all means, please go!

Maybe next time we could meet at Tysons Corner for lunch and what not!! Please keep in touch!!

Anyone up for a week-day meet instead?

LaraK

Weather now calling for morning sun and PM showers....my family is going to the zoo.

Are we meeting at the snack shop on top of the Panda House or the restraunt right at the entrance?

What's the forecast, ladies? Zoo or no zoo? So hard to decide!! You just never know what will happen! :teeth: It woudl sure be fun to meet up though!

Marshay
05-18-2007, 08:34 PM
OK, I am sorry to say that we are not going to the zoo tomorrow. DD has a runny nose and a bad diaper rash (cries everytime we change her) so I think we will stay home tomorrow.

Have fun to all who go!

LaraK

We're going. It's supposed to be cool, but sunny.

My grandson will be wearing Stitch.

Hi,
I am afraid this meet did not work out. I was there and I met LaraK and her lovely children. I am a novice and did not think of pictures!!! No one else was able to make it. I was planning to spend the day at the zoo with my daughter and grandson anyway. We had a lovely day.
