wow! I go away for a weekend and I get new friends!! Hi-Ho to all of our new SSC-bers! so glad you found your way over here. we love meeting new people, as is always stated, please feel free to start up or add to any conversation...we tend to jump around a lot...but by all means, we love talking to new friends, especially ones we can have a drink or two (pick your poison, sprite to rum!) and just be entertained by us all. we've had a lot of people traveling to one place or another, I just got back from Washington, DC for a medical school graduation...the good thing is (actually great thing) is that the person I saw graduate is moving on to her residency is going to......wait for it......Orlando!!!!!! so I now have one more place to stay/visit when I go to Disney....I think this is sign that for the next 4 years I need to keep my AP!

Yes, I have to agree with Darcy no matter where you are in the world you can find someone to share a drink with....

Sorry for my disappearance everyone. I got a nasty bug sometime last week and spent most of the week sick. You know I'm not feeling well when I actually take a couple days off work because I'm sick.

I actually have customers in that area and I believe our host and favorite prince has traveled in the area as well.
I do seem to get around a lot for someone who doesn't seem to have a reason to travel a lot....

Sooooo wishing it was May!!!
There is just something wrong about your student coming back to school just bragging about how she got Lei'd at Disney! It's just TMI!

I'm 36, a divorced mom of a pair of teenaged girls and just got back from National Guard deployment to Afghanistan. So right now I'm unemployed and trying to finally finish my degree, while taking as many trips to Disney as possible.

In July I'm heading south to Disneyland with 7 adult family members and one 10 year old. I plan to ditch them all and spend most of the 5 park days on my own. I love my family, but I've been wanting to enjoy Disney without the kids or my parents for sooo long. I have a friend in Garden Grove who might just come hang out with me for a day or so, and I just can't wait. Is anyone else here closer to Disneyland?
We always love having people join us. I know our resident Bartender is a DL person, and we've had several other west-coaster's join us over the life of this group.

Tax Season, Hockey Season, and Boy Drama have all caused me to fall off the face of the earth. Just wanted to pop in to extend my apologies and make my presence known! Hi!

You are in it. We are planning on a couple SSC meets this year. Details are going to be put on the first post as they are decided upon, but after last year we decided to try and have a West Coast Regional meet (Disneyland.... I think Blue was thinking May timeframe since he's coordinating that one), an East Coast Regional meet (still undecided, but likely to be held at one of the many amusement parks up the the northeast area due to the high concentration of people in the region. Last year we ended up doing a Hershey Meet, so we may repeat that or do something different)... and then a "big" Disney Meet at WDW on (and around) October 13th. Still working on details, but I'm sure our 2 Houston 's who decided to plan that one will come thru with plans/ideas for the meetup.

Pretty much whereever you want to. We tend to have conversational ADD here and jump around quite a bit.

Sweet. My birthday is in May, but I already have a trip planned in July. There's also a Veteran's Job Expo in May that I've been toying with attending, if the timeframe is compatible I may have two reasons to be there and could justify it. I wouldn't be able to make it to WDW this year, as I'm planning two trips to Florida early next year, but I'm going to be buying a premier pass before those trips and plan to keep it up, so in future when I can take the time and have the money for airfare I'm totally down for that.

I am back!

Hello friends (and new friends). I am back from my Spring Break trip with DD8 in Denver, we had a blast and I can now sort of snowboard! Rather than catch up I am just jumping back in, hope all is well. Watching the clock tick here, ready for my work day to end so I can enjoy a tasty beverage!!!

Sounds like you should just get the Premier pass at DisneyLand in May to cover your July DL trip, and your 2 planned WDW trips next year. Then if you can find a good airfare deal you can join us in October.
