Talking October Dis Meet at Mall Of America/ Minnesota

Hi!

I am planning a Dis Gathering in Minnesota (Twin Cities area)for all those interested! Plans are for Mid October (either the weekend of the 17th or the 24th) and include a Mall Of America outing, (shopping plus some fun activities) a dinner out to a loud German restaurant like the Biergarten in Epcot and maybe we can throw in things like a spa session or haunted hayride since we can't be at MNSSHP!

Myself and a Dis'er from Iowa are planning this and would love a head count for those who are interested! We will get hotels arranged for those who want one and help coordinate the rest of the details so all you have to do is show up and have fun in whatever activities you want to participate in!

Please respond here and I will send you a P.M. with details and get your info as well!

Thanks and hope many of you can come!!!

Hello! I could meet on Oct (17?), 23, 24, or 25th...I would prefer sat the 24th...greetings from St. Paul! I have never checked this forum, what luck. When Pete was thinking about doing a dis meet here last year there was a thread on the podcast forum of "people from MN checking in" or something similar, you should find that thread and see if those ppl are interested???? It was a few pages long.

Fantastic info! I will try and find that thread. Any idea when it was posted last year? Sometimes I have zero luck with the search engine!

I have actually never been here before either so it mst be meant to be! Usually I am on the Trip Thread or Wish board!

I see you have a trip comming up soon! I am so jealous! I have to wait till December!

I'd be interested in attending with my wife. We'll be at WDW on the 17th, though, but the other weekend sounds great. =)

Thanks for your schedule - I think it will be that second weekend.

I know some people will be comming from out of state and some in the area.

What is everybody's opinion on having a weekend of activities and then people who can come to multiple events can do so or those who want just one can pick that as well.

Or other option is do a Saturday only event.

Thoughts please!

This is so funny you're doing this, I was thinking just last week about how Pete abandoned us on coming for a meet.

I'd be interested in doing it that second weekend, I will also be in Disney until the 17th. I think alot of people will be gone that weekend due to the MEA break.

I think just a 1 day thing would probably be enough, or maybe a dinner or cocktails on Friday night and then the main meet on Saturday.

That is great! Maybe we can make this an annual or semi-annual thing!

HI!

Sorry I had to cut our conversation short. Kayla was lost - go Figure!

I agree that maybe Friday night cocktails somewhere would be nice - and then Saturday at the mall, and the German restaurant sounds like a great idea to me!

You had also mentioned a haunted hayrack ride? Maybe this could also be an option after dinner at the German Restaurant, depending on driving distance, etc.

I will be talking to you soon, I'm sure.

Sounds great!

What a great idea, and how spectacular that you are willing to do this. We certainly would be interested. Friday night would work at this point. We have a football game around noon on the 24th, but would be free later in the day.

Here is the Preliminary Itinerary so far!



Friday night: drinks/app's/dinner at Las Margaritas - Cottage Grove
They do not have a website but here is one review I have found - have eaten there many times and beyond great experience! All positive reviews from friends as well.
http://www.w00dz.com/las-margaritas-cottage-grove-mn/

Haunted Hayride after - Cottage Grove
Here is the link: (if we have 20 people we get $2 off PP)http://www.hauntingexperience.com/info.html

***I wanted a neutral place right off 694/494 and 94 is super close as well. There will be some people traveling and staying in hotels near the MOA so needs to be convenient for them.

Next Up:

Saturday - MOA afternoon - Scavenger Hunt and shopping
Sat evening - dinner with a German Flair! It is Oktoberfest so a ton of fun! Under the events tab is more info on their site!
http://www.gasthofzg.com/index.html

Again - if you want to attend any of the events that would be awesome! I will need a head count for things like the dinner for Sat evening soon as they will fill up fast that time of year.

We also will need to book the hayride as a group discount in order to save $2.00 off per person if we get 20 or more people.

Both nights are open to couples and or single parties - bring Disney fan friends - I know I have older kids that might want to participate in some events.

FYI: I will tell you that the haunted hayride is very dark and scary so if you are considering taking a child - know that ahead of time. I have seen young teens come out in tears that thought it would be a babyish experience. They cannot touch you but it is not for the faint of heart.
I will go but spend most of my time burrying my eyes in Jo's shirt - just letting ya know Jo!
