it is my hope our event will not be affected by the expansion of Club 33.

I'm told it's their intention to keep the main dining room in operation throughout the renovation.

sorry that is all I know at this time.

Would you suggest we go ahead and book travel, or do you think we should wait a bit longer. Also, what time will we meet and how will we exchange information? Do we meet at the park gate or contact each other via cell? Sorry for all the questions.. Just an obsessive planner here.
Thanks

I think these are all excellent and valid questions. I would like the answers too. By the way, I always flew to LA from Vancouver. Now that I'm in Toronto, should I go Toronto to La or Toronto to Vancouver to LA or Buffalo to LA? Any advice?

Don't go TO>Van>L.A,
If you get a good price I'd get a non-stop YYZ to LAX (but only at a good price), but I always fly BUF to (anywhere California), you'll have to make a stop (through a hub) but you can always get great discounted airlines (Southwest, Airtran etc.) and you can also fly into Orange County or other smaller airports vs. LAX, and prices from BUF are usually HALF the cost of T.O.

Excellent questions. In the past I have been very informative but I have been stalling a little in hope of being guaranteed seating for a large group at 33. I know this makes it difficult to make travel arrangements. Previous years we had a meeting point in the morning then went our separate ways to explore the parks, meeting back at the Club door a few minutes before our reservation time. By this time most of us had exchanged texting numbers and emails. I'm going to make a head count soon. Anyone very serious about attending please PM me and we can discuss our travel plans, meeting times and other details more seriously.

Thanks everyone. I apologize for not being able to offer solid information at this time.

Clube33forme,
I just saw your generous offer. If it's not too late I'd love to join. Being a teacher, I am restricted as to when I can travel. I'd love to come with my daughter. I've been to WDW countless times but have never been to DL.

To westcoastgal, when traveling as a family within the U.S., we always travel out of Buffalo. If my DH and I are traveling without our kids, sometimes we'll fly out of Pearson.

I looked at flights from Buffalo to LAX as well as airports near Anaheim. The savings was only about $100/person which isn't worth the hassle. I will keep looking though. Ironically, Buffalo to Orlando is half the price so is worth it.

She turns 4 this Summer so much younger than yours. I was hoping someone else had a little one at this meetup.

Quick question: Is this something that you do with some regularity? The family and I are going to DW in the fall this year which will effectively end our vacation allotment of time and resources for the year, but it would be something I would be interested in the future.

Also, always nice to see another Saskatchewanian on the boards. Greetings from the U of R.

Gee I was starting to think I was the only Disneynut in Saskatchewan. I have stumbled on a few but not very many. This will be our 7th Canadian Club 33 day but only the second time I offered an invitation on the Disboards. I usually offer the opportunity to people that have Disney websites or podcasts etc but thought I would open up the offer to good old everyday Disney fans, there seems to be interest. I plan to continue the event but not sure in what direction. I have never excluded our non-Canadian Disney friends so I have been trying to get the word out to Canadians first as we need a little more time to arrange travel plans. I'm sure you will have an opportunity to attend in the future but if I decide not to post the invitation on the Disboards you may need to keep a watchful eye or send me a pm or email to express interest.*

Thanks.*

Wow - this offer seems too good to be true! Is a day available for third week of July? (After SDCC :-) Of course, a trip to California a little earlier doesn't hurt either
