We really enjoyed the dismeet today, it would be great to do another one sometime! I agree about the round table, or maybe a kids table and an adult table.

Yes we have.....both at WDW and Disneyland/CA. At the parks you can find virtual geocaches that take you to cool spots etc. Disney kind of frowns on us cachers hiding actual caches in the parks as the caches can be misinterpreted as suspicious articles.
It is a lot of fun!!!

Hi All,
I really enjoyed the Dis-meet today as well. Too funny about the apple pancake! I didn't realize it was going to be that big...for next time we now know there is a smaller version.

As for tables in Wonderland..annual pass holders get a discount on it. It is 20% off your food AND beverage (alcohol included). Geodoc and I upgraded our passes from Airmiles to Annual Passes in September knowing we would be going again within the year. It almost paid for itself when we used it in Sept.

We are doing a standard view at AKV as that uses the least amount of points. We bank one year and use one year to be able to afford a 2 BR so the leeches...I'm mean my wonderful sister and niece can come with us.

I know we can pool hop but not to Beach Club. I prefer to stay at our resort because we travel with the Disney busses so it can eat up alot of your day. This way we wander down and then wander back up and crash for a while before going out to dinner.

We did have plans to cook more this time but we still have lots of ADR's. There's too many great restaurants to eat at

Looking forward to the trip because it's a different trip everytime we go, in that, we do at least one thing we haven't done before.

I think this time it's see how many different alcoholic bevvies we can enjoy that we haven't had before

I agree! That sounds like a great idea!! I would have liked to talked more to the other end of the table too!! lol

I think it would be more relaxed!! and the kids would probably enjoy it more as well.

Maybe a picnic spot at Birds Hill Park or even Assiniboine Park!
Anywhere would work for me!!

Thanks again everyone to a great dis meet!!

Debbie

A park would be great. Much easier for kids and adults.
