Tara that is a great idea. Im down for that. I'm presenting a *cough*toy*cough* party, but I don't know who is going to host it. If I end up doing a suite, I could certainly but I just don't know where Im staying just yet. Like someone else said, Im going to wait and see about any AP discounts for that time.

Wish I could go to the October meet, but I own a haunted house.... And my social life dies in October because of it.

that's too bad you won't make it...it's my 33rd anniversary for my choir and if I don't show up, they may never speak to me let alone let me direct again. we'll have to live vicariously through all the posts everyone puts up and the texts I better be getting.....
or you could just fake sick, miss work and fly out for the weekend....just a thought...:rolleyes

Well... Looks like we FINALLY hit page 200 on this thread. We've been seriously slacking this year.

WS open? Or Epcot Open? And just cause I completely ignore all things Duffy...... Where's the Duffy store again?

(I'll update the first post with info once I know I'm putting the correct info. )

Once I finalize the details I can send out invite via PM to those attending.

Sadly, I have to work this entire weekend. I am in Turkey and the temperature is about 110F. Pretty miserable.

Hope everyone else has fun plans for the weekend.

Cool... Hmmmmm.... maybe you and Lala should get together and combine your get together with her 'party'. Might as well start the weekend off with a 'bang!'

Don't know where I'm staying yet. Waiting for AP discounts for that time. Or worst case scenario we bunk with little brother. He's an hour away but I don't care I got my plane tickets with Jetblue at an awesome price.

And Tara, meeting at Epcot sounds perfect. My favorite park and Food and Wine! Sounds great!

to the group guys! I know the 's of this group always enjoy it when we have new guys show up to keep them company.

Feel free to pull up and stool and order yourselves a drink. The bartender will be with you shortly. We can be a pretty lively group at times, so just hop right into the conversation and don't feel too bad about not catching up. We can be very random anyways, so what we posted 3 pages ago may not have any relation to the current conversation topics.

Sounds to me like someone needs to stack the deck next deal.

October 13th. details will be updated on the first post as they become available ( It's a lot easier to just check the first post then try and figure out where in this mass of a thread the details were posted)

As i mentioned above... Maybe you and BigE should get together and see about combining the planned events?

Hmmmm... well Thursday I'm hitting up Halloween Horror Nights. Might be something you could justify as a business trip... you know... checking out one of the best haunted events in the country in the name of "research".

Sadly no I would much rather be eating around the world than stuck in stinky Ohio.

However I will be in Orlando the night of 10/11 if anyone is gonna be around and wants to hang out.

Hmmmm....

That's something maybe worth doing...


What do you guys think of me including travel dates on the first post under the confirmed/maybe attending lists for the October meet? It might help people see who else is in the area during their meet trip to hang out with.

Haha Thanks. Other than the fact she's been in Montana since May and won't be back until October fairly well. Haha. Today is the 1 year anniversary of our first date. She decided to call me at 0300 to tell me that. Haha. They made me an offer and are just waiting on the Navy to get back to them as to whether they won the contract or not. I did find out it's a climate controlled facility and is relatively new. Just a waiting game now.

Enjoy! I'm in Chicago and it's been downright brutal! I miss the desert. Lol. This humidity is killing me. I'm definitely not used to it. No might be about it, you better be enjoying one. Lol.

Speaking of enjoying adult beverages... *passes out a round of margarita's* enjoy guys. ;-) oh, and happy hump day!
That stinks, I hope you guys get to see each other soon. It is not any fun being so far apart!

Sounds like a great plan, it doesn't get much better than F&W with a great group of people.

Can't wait to meet you. I will be celebrating my birthday week in Sept and will have NO problem celebrating with you in October.

I've been the since it started, and even in college I didn't miss an anniversary, now I've been the directress of a 30 member gospel choir for 13 years now and it is so much fun...and yes I love it more than Disney (shhhh...don't tell them though)
I'm sure that one of our trips will cross and we will absolutely hook up to hang!

I was thinking WS open, then spend the day/night having fun! The Duffy store is the first thing you see entering WS from FW if you walk straight back from the fountains, Mexico is just to the left.

I haven't booked my flight yet but if I am tracking correctly I expect a drop in price soon and will book. Thinking I will be friday the 12th -sunday the 14th. I am glad I am not the only one waiting on an AP discount for my room!! Should we do the *party* after a day of drinking at EPCOT?

Also, I have never gotten to eat at Via Napoli, I may try to get a group going for lunch Sunday before I head home. DD8 is stuck on San Angel and won't let me book anything else in EPCOT, let me know if you'd be interested. I do have the TIW card.
