DIS Dads in December - Let the Party Bus Roll!

If you've come across this Pre Trip Report, you're either a member of the DIS Dads Club or you want to be. The basic qualifications are
1) You love Disney
and
2) You have some sort of offspring (biological, adopted, step, grandkids, etc)

To read the full list of qualifications or to join, check out the thread here:http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2439511

We're just a bunch of guys that happen to enjoy getting together to talk about Disney and other manly things (mostly fart jokes and beer). During our discussions, we have come to discover that several of us are planning trips to Walt Disney World in early December 2010. This Pre Trip Report will be a place for us to post updates and coordinate some type of gathering.

If you want, check out our little club. If you're interested, joining is easy - just post to that forum and join in on the conversation. And if you're going anytime between Dec 3 and Dec 11, 2010 post your details here.

I'll keep an updated list of potential or confirmed attendees here. I'll see you in December!

  • Drinking around the world
  • Take over Barnstormer if still there(or just any ride)
  • All try to do MVMCP on same night
  • Golf outing
  • Meet and greet at ESPN Zone
  • Breakfast gathering
  • Dis Dad group photo with the Mayor of Disney (our future boss)
  • Dis Dad group photo with Santa Goofy
  • Dis Dad horse drawn trolly ride down Main Street with Dapper Dan's on the back
  • Try to get into a parade with The Dis Dads as the Grand Marrshell's
  • Dis Dads open a park
  • We could all ride a bus to make sure MAN LAW is being upheld
  • Passing of the torch. Incoming dads try to meet up with outgoing dads for a hello and a handshake.

And now for my details.
My name is Barry, and I have been married for 9 wonderful years to Bambi. Two kids: DD5 (Madison) and DS3 (Evan). I guess you could call us Disney Veterans. We've been to Disney World just about every year for the 6 or so.

Edited:
Plans have changed. We've secured cheap airfare from Milwaukee to Orlando, we'll be flying down Dec 4, back on Dec 12. We have a Tree House Villa booked for us and a mother/son that we will be traveling with. .

I put this up due to the number of guys that were thinking about going in December. It's not really my PTR. It's for everybody. I'm just the caretaker.

I'm still on the fence about doing a March PTR. I mean, who's crazy enough to have 2 Trip Reports at once?

I'm in as well
We'll be at AKV as well. At the very least I think we should have some type of group photo in the lobby one of the nights for the entire DisDad clan. We always prebuy the Photopass CD every time we go so it won't be hard to get copies to whoever wants them.

I'm not sure of any of the logistics of the trip yet but will definitely be there.

You've been added. The group shot is a great idea.

I agree a group shot would be awesome, but I think we should kick it up a noche and do a group shot with the top dad Goofy or Santa Goofy!

If we wait in line to get a picture they most likely will let us do it

Fantastic! You've been added to the official roster.

And hey, look at that. We both have 5 year old DDs and 3 year old DDs. How's that for coincidence?

Holy cow that's a lot of people and rooms. I'd probably fall off my chair if I saw how many points that took!

I've got you added! 9 Dads already!
I'll be honest, when I started this thread 43 days ago, I figured there might be half a dozen or so of us. And we've still got 11 months to go!
