I like the breakfast idea. Good way to start a day and it should make it easier for everyone to make.

I dug something up on this (don't know if it's true or not, but 1 of the Dad's who go before might be able to check it out)

Toontown opens at 9:45, 1st to arrive at Barnstormer, usually can ride with Goofy.

Stay to the right side of the crowd, most of them will head left to see at the Judge's tent.

Now if this is true, and still open when we go, if we get there as soon as it opens We might be able to get Goofy to ride with the Dis Dads

Can you imagine the Did Dads and Goofy all riding together.We can have shirts with the Dis Dads Goofy logo on them.Not sure if the Barnstormer will still be there but I sure hope so.Going to do some searches to see if a time frame has been set for it moving.Hopefully they leave it be untill they are close to done the new part then move it,but only time will tell.

From what I read the Barnstormer is going to stay where it is, Dumbo and Cindy's carousel were going to be moved by the Barnstormer under a tent, but who knows what they will really do.

I'm definitely up for that! I'll put the pic right next to the one of DS on Barnstormer for his first roller-coaster ride.

Dis Dads - Grand Marshall's ?

My dad always says plan big, so with that in mind, how about we try to be the Grand Marshall's in a parade? This would be the ultimate Dis Dad moment and make Dis Dad history.

To make something of this caliber happen it will take a team long term strategy

This is what I was thinking, anyone who will be there for Dec trip when booking anything, when they ask if there is anything else they can help you with? You tell them that you will be there with a group from the Disboards. The Dis Dads and you were wondering how you would go about becoming a Grand Marshall in a parade, they might give us a pointer, won't know, or make a foot note (someone higher up might respond to this)

List your Dis Dad Member # on countdown clock when you will be there (never know who looks at this if they see alot of members at the same time, better the chance)

About 2 months before we go, I'll shoot a couple of emails to some higher ups (I found a list of contacts once I'll find them again) Letting them know who we are, what we stand for, and what we would like to do, hey most of them are Dads too hopefully we can get a make it happen contact.

As Barry said " If it's something worth doing, it's worth doing right. "


Remember:TEAM

T - Together

E - Everybody

A - Achives

M - More

: jumping1:

Can we do it?

South Mississippi? As in "almost to the Gulf of Mexico" South Mississippi? Woa.

DW went crazy. I'm not saying anything, because it will be fun. Me putting my foot down are the cruises. It will be our first Disney cruise and we are excited. We got APs again and with the resort discounts you can't beat the price. Plus we can drive, it's only 7 1/2 hours away. They're only young once.
