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.

Kudos! To Barry for starting this page, and working on logo!!

To make this work will be a TEAM effort, even is you can not make this date, all Dad's will have a important role.

First thing we have to come up with is a offical shirt, color, logo etc. Got to get it out there that we are here! Maybe even a window decal for your car, ex. Member of the Dis Dads Club@ Dis Boards. com , This will most likely add members and ideas, and would be a positive thing (will get into that at later time)

2nd - What are our objectives, do we want to do, open a park, be in a parade, do we want to fill a whole ride like Space Mountain, Rock & Roll Rollercoaster etc. A group photo as mentioned is a must. We have to figure out at least 5 things that are not out of reason.

These are the things we should focus on now, and go from here.

Don't know yet if we'll be able to make it happen or not - but I definitely want to keep informed. And maybe it'll work out that I can be there just me...not sure yet - but I'm intrigued!

Hope you can make it! With as many trips that you have made your insight of how they operate things at the parks will be most helpful

Dis Dads Logo

I have saved a high resolution copy of the Dis Dads Club logo to:
http://www.4shared.com/file/17237560...7/DDLogo2.html

This file is the 300 dpi version that threadsmith.com requires to embroider onto shirts, hats, backpacks, etc. Simply download the file to your computer, create an account at threadsmith.com, upload this file and add it to whatever item you want. You can change the color of the logo when you add it to your garment.
