Talking to the DW about this and she suggested a place to eat like O'Hana so that after dinner we could either sit on the beach and continue our "discussions" or head to the top of the Contemporary to watch the fireworks.

I think most likely I'd have to sit the convention out. It sounds like a blast, and I wish I could do it. We're a single-income family and typically save up for one big vacation a year, and right now we have plans for a fairly expensive trip both this summer and next. So it would be hard to justify spending several hundred dollars on myself in the midst of that. I'll never say never, but for now I'll let you guys make the plans.

Oh, and good luck. We're all counting on you.
Congrats on 3555 posts Mark!

Would the dinner, or for that matter breakfast be for DISDads only, or can we bring a "Date"?

We could do both - and have one open to "dates" and the other just Dads.

Great Daniel! It's tentatively looking like January 2013 based on the vote count.

Now if Disney would just release 2013 rates, we could start actual planning . . .

Are we looking at the weekend after Marathon weekend? It's the 20th anniversary of the Marathon so there will likely already be a handful of dads down there for that.

If you're running, will you have time to hang with the Dads?

Right now people are guessing 2013 Marathon weekend will be January 10-13th so there could be weekends in January both before and after the MW.

The races start before six. Last year I think I was ready to head back to the parks by 10 or 11 am on Saturday after the half. I think it'd be late morning or mid afternoon before most people would be available after the half.

I was wondering if DDC was going to be scheduled the weekend that follows the Marathon. I don't know if it would be easier for dads that are running to set up an 8 or 9 day trip with the marathon the first weekend and the convention the following weekend.
