Alright, based on the responses I received from those ladies who went on the first trip, these choices seemed to pop up the most.

First we need to narrow it down to a general time frame, and then from there we can narrow it down even further to actual dates. :yay:

This will be a public poll so keep in mind everyone will be able to see who voted and for what option. Here is a link to an online 2009 calendar if anyone needs one: 2009 Calendar (http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/index.html?year=2009&country=1)

Oh, and here's a little eye candy for all the ladies who stop by to vote: ;)

I voted for end of March early April before Easter. But I will also go no matter when we actually decide to go. I just hope we get good weather that time of year.

I hear ya on the weather issue. :headache: But darn SoCal weather is so hard to predict, I think the safest bet is just to try to plan what works best schedule wise for everyone. And then hope for good weather! :rotfl:

I was the sixth one to vote!
I picked end of Feb/early March. But I am like Stacie and can go whenever the group decides.

This time FOR SURE I am staying where the group is. I felt kinda out of the loop because we were at The Menage.:guilty:

Thanks Beth!:yay:

I went ahead and voted, even though it is highly improbable that I'll be able to go. I voted for late Feb/early March since is has the best chance of low crowds and cooler weather.

And if I get to go, I will make sure I attend more of the group meals, even if all I order is ice water. ;) I feel like I missed out on getting to know everyone b/c I didn't do the dinners.

Alright well, I finally threw my vote in there too. I was going to put anytime, but that's not really true since I can't go in the Fall. Too close to the holidays for me. With four kids and one income we start saving for Christmas around Fall.

Soooo, that left me with the first two choices and I can really do either of those, but I choose the end of Feb/early March one because I'd prefer that. More specifically, the early March part of that scenario.

I know there were several ladies who couldn't make it last time, or were hesitant to go for fear it was really a group of creepy old men (we kept them hidden in Callie's room at the HoJo :rolleyes1 ), but hopefully we'll get lots of those same ladies to join us this time. :)

I voted end of march early april because I am nervous of snow storms. Yes in the northern part of US and Canada it is a nasty world. Less change of being snowed in at end of March. But I will go to what ever as long as not in the fall :)

I voted for End of Feb early March. We have birthdays and an anniversary at the end of March early April, and I know I wouldn't be able to come then.

I would be able to do a fall trip, and think it would be very fun to see everyone all dressed up for Mickey's Halloween Treat! But I completely understand that it is too close to the holidays for some families. And you might actually prefer to go to Mickey's Halloween Treat with your family instead of a bunch of fun loving DIS girls.

The important thing is: Vote girls vote!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I would love to go crash the Mickey's Halloween party with a bunch of us all dressed up! :banana: :yay: That would be soooo fun.
It's just such a hard time for us to spend money. :rolleyes:

We actually do have plans to go this October 8-10, but that's only because we will be using some money from the refund check, and also because our APs expire in October :scared1: :sad1: so it's like one last family trip for us since we won't be renewing them for at least a year. :sad:


Hey, maybe this October some of you local gals could meet and dress up and hit the party! That would be fun. ;)

I voted for the fall because of life changes going on right now that might make it hard for me to leave for more than a day in February ;) .

Then we will be at WDW the end of March/early April so that wouldn't work.

But if February wins then I may just stop by for a dinner or something to chat with a few of you :thumbsup2 .

Hi I saw your thread from this year and I would LOVE to join you gals with my mom on your next trip. Problem is I already have a trip planned for easter week next April so if you planned one for early April unless it was literally that first weekend it when I am ALREADY there that would be tough. I think a fall trip would be awesome as I have gone during that time of year and the weather is usually great and it is SO fun that time of year but whatever works for everyone. I would LOVE to join you gals as you all look like so much fun and mom and I are LOTS of fun and HUGE Disney fanatics. We are passholders and are going to Disneyworld this Thanksgiving and have a trip planned for easter break as I said to celebrate my youngest daughters birthday.

I sure hope it works out! We also have a trip to go to Vegas and the Grand Canyon for Thanksgiving of 09 so I hope we can somehow make this work!

I sure would love to meet you all!

Hi we'd love to have you and your mom join us! The more the merrier!!

And I love the pic in your sig. Are you in it? We were there in December and the castle was so pretty. I love the decorations. It's a great time to go to Disney.

Lucky you getting to go to WDW for Thanksgiving. We've been there right afterwards, and it was so nice. Low crowds and none of the humidity you find in the summer. :)

And WDW trip in Oct.

Yes that is me next to dh and that is my mom to my left and that is my 16 year old dsd to her left. I also have a 7 and 8 year old dd's. We have been AP holders for the past 2 years making 4 trips the past 2 years in a row but because of our big DW trip in Nov we are letting our AP expire. BOY was that tough when I got my renewal a few days ago :( . I had to hurry up and put it in the shredder LOL. But we knew we couldn't use it before we went back next April and we need ALL our money for our almost 2 week trip to "the world" in Nov. We are going all out to see the castle and the world with THEIR version of Christmas. I just LOVE DL at Christmas and have done the holiday tour and it is just about my favorite time of year. We did Mickey's Halloween treat last year and I have been to MNSSHP as well so we want to see DW at the Holidays. But I digress. We plan to renew our AP's in April when we go back. We have celebrated my 8 and 16 year old's birthdays but not my youngest's and even though I loathe going to the parks at such a busy time of year we unfortunately have to go during the kids school breaks AND since her birthday is in April that was just when it worked out for us to go. Plus that was the soonest we figured it would work out after such a big trip to DW in Nov. SOOOO that is my story and I'm stickin to it! ;)

Anyway that's me in a nutshell (quoting Austin powers) ;) Mom and I are huge Disney fanatics (ok me more than her) and we try to go at LEAST once a year but more like 2 or three times if we can help it. We have been to DW twice and this will be our 3rd time although probably our last for awhile with the prices now. But we live in northern CA and DL is my most fav place in the world. I come here to the dis EVERY day sometimes several times a day for my "fix" LOL and as soon as I get home I am planning another trip. So do I qualify for the club? :)

You gals sound like my kind of group and I've already asked dh if it is "ok" if I join you gals if the dates work out and he gives the thumbs up so hopefully it all works out! :)

Thanks for all the info. It's nice to "meet" you. You should come over and post some of that on our trip planning thread so some of the ladies can get to know you. If you haven't already since you posted this that is.

That is so cool you are going to be there for 2 weeks! Wow, you'll really have time to see and do everything. WDW is so nice for the holidays. I especially enjoyed Epcot and seeing how the different countries celebrate Christmas. You'll have a great time!

I've been to WDW 4 times. I'd like to go more often but it's expensive and honestly, I HATE to fly. Really hate it. Enough to cancel trips over it. :rolleyes:

Plus my DH isn't as big of a Disney fan as I am. He tolerates Disneyland because we can get APs and then drive there in 5 hours so it's less hassle. But to plan a whole big trip like you have to at WDW, well, he won't go for it. Not when we've already done it a few times.

I'm sorry you have to let your APs expire! Even if it's for a good reason I know how hard that is!! Ours expire in Oct. and I know I'll shed a tear! :sad1: We decided to take a year off because my MIL is buying us APs to Universal Studios and maybe Knotts Berry Farm, so DH wants to spend more time there.

Sad to say my DS is now 13 and those parks with their faster rides are starting to appeal to him more now anyway. :sad2: Now I'm the one rambling. :rotfl:

Anyway, I hope it works out for you to join us. And your mom too. I think it will be a nice trip for the two of you. And I'd say you both definitely qualify for the "club". ;)

Callie: I think even more so than planning "dinners" we should plan more informal get-togethers--like the wine and cheese extravaganza I missed! I think that way it's not too expensive (all those DLR places get pricey!) and we get to mix and mingle. The other option (if for example we stay at Hojo again and can get their conf. room) is to order in pizzas or sandwiches for a dinner one night. Not to say we shouldn't plan some more "formal" meal options but I think at least one pre-planned informal event would be a good idea.

Hi, thanks for posting. Don't be nervous or shy! All the ladies here are so nice and friendly. Really a great bunch. :goodvibes

I hope it works out that you are able to go with us. Once we narrow it down to a time frame, we can work on dates. Hopefully ones without any black out days for anyone. Or maybe if there is a black out day, we can plan something to do outside of the parks.

Agreed. Although so far the early dates are doing better then the Fall.

I was hoping that there would be another DL trip. I would love to go! I was interested in the first trip, but the dates didn't work out for me.

Wow, we've had 44 votes! That's great. Just a reminder this poll will close tomorrow evening so if you haven't voted, and want to, there is still time. :)

I'd love to join you ladies for the next trip. I'm planning on getting APs this winter. I'll just have to work on getting someone to watch DD for a day or two. I voted for late March early April because it would be great to have my tax return back - then maybe I could fly down. We'll see. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to meet everyone in person. :)

That would be great if you could make it this time!

This poll closes tomorrow, and then after that, I'll start another one with some specific dates so we can get this narrowed down and make some real plans! :cool1:

I voted fall even though I haven't decided if I even want to join in this time.
I am very much waffling from my first no to, to my current well maybe.

I am just TOO hyper for group activities!!!

End of February, I will be in Ohio learning some manner of Veterinary Biz stuff.

So, even though the fall has no chance of winning, I cast my vote there.

Hi Amy. Darn I wish there were dates that were perfect for everyone. :( I'd like to get the chance to meet you.

Where in SoCal are you again? Any chance you could join us for some mini meets?? :hyper: A smaller meet might work better for you too. Less crowded. :rotfl:

After thinking about it I realized anytime is fine for me! I'll be transferring to CSUFullerton or as I call it, Cal State Disneyland! (15 minutes away!) for spring 2009 (if everything goes accordingly) and I'll definitely spring for the premium pass when my current SO. CAl one expires.

I'm guessing sob uncontrollably and eat Ben and Jerry's from the container!!!!:rolleyes1

We expire June 2. We go for my DD7's b-day June 1. That's using your pass to it's fullest.

I talked my mom into renewing the kid's for her birthday, not sure where the cash will come to renew my DH's and mine!!!! Using $45 of gas each week stinks!!!

Maybe you need an early fall 2008 girls dismeet before you expire!! Hmmmmm?

LOL Guess I'd better stock up on the ice cream now. It will take lots to console me. I've gotten very spoiled by having those APs. :sad2:

That's great your mom will renew the kids passes! Every little bit helps. Gas prices do suck though! :mad: You've got in worse in CA too then we do, but still.

I would LOVE to have a meet in early Fall. We are already planning a trip to DL sometime in Oct. probably the 8-10. I'll have the whole family with me, but if anyone local is meeting up, I can ditch them for awhile and hang out with the ladies.....:rolleyes1 :yay:

OKay, this poll is officially closed!! :yay:

Thanks to all those who voted. :flower3: As you can see the late Feb/early March time frame has won with half the votes.

So based on that, and looking at the calendar while taking into consideration black out dates for those with Deluxe passes, these seem like the 3 main dates we can now choose from:

(Premium passes are never blocked out, and the SoCal ones seem to be blocked out on all Saturdays no matter what)

Feb. 19-23

Feb. 26-March 2

March 5-9

I am going to get a new poll up and running with those choices, so we can finally pick our dates for the 2009 Girls Only Disneyland Trip!!!!! :banana: :woohoo: :yay:
