ABD Backstage Magic - Summer 2010 Edition!

Hi all,
I thought I'd start a thread for those of us going on the July ABD Backstage Magic tour so we can all start getting to know each other!

I'm Kristen and I'll be traveling solo, but rooming with Nichole (nmoore14) who I'll meet for the first time in LA.

After reading trip reports from the April trip I'm even more excited than ever - so much to do before we go, but looking forward to every minute!

Does anyone know if this will be a DIS-only trip?

Looking forward to getting to know you all before we get there!

So far these are the folks confirmed as going:

ragtopday - Kristen
nmoore14 - Nichole
chropistopy - Christy
DisneyRob - Rob & Mike
grizbuzz - John & Jen
relspeak - Anne & Alan
Jeff & Stacy in NYC - Stacy & Jeff
NitroStitch - Lisa & Paul
ScrappinDW - Pam & Mary
Zzizzy - Wayne
luceb - Luce' and Stew
WebmasterPete - Pete and Walter

Hi!

We'll be joining too! We're DH John and myself, Jen. We're Californians who are currently located in Baden, near Zurich.

We won't be able to make the chat, unfortunately, unless it's before June 23 or after July 5.

Can't wait for the trip and to meet you all!

Anne Nelson here. My husband, Alan, and I are really, really excited to be going on the ABD with all of you. Collectively, we are "relspeak" on the boards. We've been to CA many times in the last few years because our daughter and her husband live in Orange, but we are looking forward to all the new things to see and do on our adventure as well as meeting all of you.

Hi! I'm Stacy. My husband Jeff and I are thrilled to be going on this adventure with all of you! The DIS Unplugged is our favorite podcast, and BSM is the ultimate Disney fan experience! Can it get any better?

Hi! I'm Christy and I'm from Georgia. I will be traveling solo on this trip. I've only been to Disneyland once and that was several years ago. I can't wait. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

Kristen and Nichole: we solo travelers should stick together. =)

Hi! I'm Lisa and my husband is Paul. This trip has been a dream of mine for years, and I still can't quite believe we're going!

The podcast and reports from the last ABD trip had me in a tizzy, and now we're going too!

I went to Disneyland in 2006 on a solo trip & Paul hasn't been since before DCA was built, so we're looking forward to all of it!

My first trip to Disney was Disneyland - I think it was 1974. I have a sullen picture of me and my sister with Pluto around here somewhere!

I visited DCA in March 2001 shortly after it opened (we only had one day) and had a blast, falling in love with Soarin' over California.

So I've really never been to Disneyland as an adult and my one and only DCA visit was whirlwind (and mostly thrill-ride oriented), so I'm really looking forward to exploring more about it all. Not to mention Imagineering and all that shopping!

Christy - we'll make it a solo trio!

Hi,
I am Pam. My friend Mary and I will be joining you. I am so excited!!!!! I first went to WDW in 2002 and fell in love with it and have been back 10 times, #11 is in September. I didn't think I would have any interest in going to Disneyland until I read a trip report someone had written about their ABD trip. Then I thought I needed to go too. It will be so exciting to be where Walt Disney has been and see what he saw. He was an amazing man.
It was to late for the Dis April trip so Mary and I decided to go in November. When this trip came up we were so glad to be able to join it instead.
Mary isn't a Disney fanatic like I am (like all of us are) but she really, really wants to go to The Price Is Right show. She was in California many years ago but her husband wouldn't go with her. She has been to WDW twice with me and now this trip so I will go with her. I just hope she will enjoy most of the trip with us.
I will try to be in chat. I work second shift but maybe I can take a little time off to join in.
Can't wait to meet everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My one trip to DL was in 2002. DCA was open but I didn't spend too much time there. I, too, am looking forward to exploring more.

Is anyone adding days to your trip? I, unfornately, can't but have been daydreaming about spending more time in CA. I have a friend that is in Napa now. She says Napa = Heaven.

Is there life outside of Disney? If so, I don't want to know about it.

That is very true! I usually travel solo, but I really wanted to go on this trip and knew that I needed a roommate! I am very glad that Kristen decided to room with me : I hope to make the chat on June 24 so that I can get to know everyone!

I added a day before and a day after. I do not know when I will get a chance to go to CA again, so I want to live it up while I can Anyone else add any days to their trip?
