Trader Sams was suggested. I would go with Trader Sams unless someone else would like to recommend a different spot. I would hope that any DISer could meet up. I'm not going to the Expo, and I'm going to the meet.

As much as I love Trader Sam's, I'm afraid it may be buried in meets from social media sites, bloggers and podcasters that evening.

How about the Hearthstone Lounge or even the outdoor fireplace area next to the Hearthstone Lounge?

Any other ideas?

That is really a nice idea. That way people can get snacks or something to drink. I like the idea of the outdoor fireplace area.

Some options:
- Grand Californian Hotel
- Hearthstone Lounge - inside or out by fireplace
- White Water Snacks - outside
- Disneyland Hotel
- Trader Sams area
- Paradise Pier Hotel
- Lounge area

Inside the parks:
- Disneyland Riverbell Terrace or Stagecoach Cafe
- Habor house area in front of the Haunted Mansion, along Rivers of America
- California Adventure - Pacific Wharf area
- Paradise Pier area where they have the Italian and Greek food

- Hilton lobby area
- Marriott lobby area

I voted for Thursday at DLR with one caveat... We (me & my buddy Kirk) have 3 nights in the parks and want to see all 3 night-time shows - so not so late as to interfere with that! (Most likely Thursday will be either Fantasmic! or the fireworks)

Looking forward to meeting folks there!

I like the suggestion of meeting outside the Hearthstone lounge by the fireplace.

We're leaning toward meeting at the Hearthstone Lounge fireplace on Thursday at 5pm.

How would that work for everyone?

Tom - the Hearthstone lounge at 5PM on Thursday works for me. One stupid question - where is the Hearthstone lounge (and no, I'm not kidding... )
