Happy New Year (almost) to all the Divas. I haven't been around much, but I'm impressed on how beautifully the trip planning has come together.

I've sent my checks for the adorable t-shirt (blinged) and the Meet & Greet

For meals, I know we're not keeping track of the counter service, but count me in for Rancho del Zocalo and Trader Sams on Wednesday, and Earl of Sandwhich on Thurs.

Also, if you could add me to the Mimi's reservation for Sunday, that would be great.

I"m looking forward to seeing so many wonderful friends in @ 2 months. Wow, time sure goes fast!

Thanks so much Sarah!

Jen I sent you a pm.

So we are going on NYE and were going to do ART cuz we are staying a ways off site. Do you think the Toy Story lot would be better? I have a premium so I have free parking. I just didn't want mom to have to stand and wait forever at that late hour. Anyone??

We always use the Toy Story lot. Every evening we been there they are running shuttle after shuttle. They do have people standing but if your mom doesn't want to stand wait and be the first on the next one .... it'll be lined up right behind the full one. Make sense???

I'd like to meet up for drinks at one point. That sounds fun! I am thinking I might want to try and catch WoC on the Friday night of the girls trip, and maybe some drinks after. Does that get in the way of anything that's planned already?

Mel, I sent your cheque out on Monday, but with the holidays, it might take a little longer. Hope it gets there on time!

Andrea, you are OK with your payment. No worries!

It might work out to do Trader Sam's Friday night after the show. Another nice spot to go is The Lounge at Napa. Totally different atmosphere, but fun too.

I'm so excited for you!!! I wish I could go!
Kerri, i'd rather be hot than cold too. I can't stand to be cold. It takes me forever to warm up. Ask, Beth. One time we waited for Fantasmic to start, and I had on my coat, hat, gloves, a blanket and my cozy Uggs, and I was still shivering.

The shuttles are great from there. Lots of them, like Linda said. They even have their own route, that bypasses much of Harbor, and once they get to the parks, they have their own area for loading and unloading.

Thanks Linda and Mel. I really didn't want to do the art and since we have our own car but I was afraid if we parked in the Mickey lot that when it got out the lines would be horrendous. I will def check it out!!

Mel I gave mom the amount and your address but then she lost it so she gave me a check yesterday and I am mailing it today! Sorry for the delay but it will be on it's way!! Hey that rhymed LOL.

Anyway we are off bright and early tomorrow so again Happy New Year everyone and can't wait once I get back to get in full trip planning mode. So excited!!

Fly by

Just a quick fly-by to wish everyone a great New Year! I had a nice Christmas in Modesto, and now I'm in Sacramento visiting a friend, and I leave Sunday for DL.

PM me if you think you can pick them up for me. You wouldn't have to mail them, I can wait till the Diva trip. Thanks!
Lisa - are you still looking for someone to do this? I'd be happy to. Let me know. (I think I'm in your 'hood at the moment - isn't that funny!)

I'm looking forward to it! I may have my uncle with me too!

I'm very excited about my DL trip. I'm doing the Holiday tour on the 31st, and the Walk in Walt's DL Footsteps tour on the 3rd (thanks to Mary Jo's great review!)

Have a great weekend everyone.

Do the TS lot. Just so much easier. And ART, when we've ridden ART it's always full and we always have to stand the entire ride because people don't know how to share seats anymore. lol Where are you staying again?

That's how I am too, always cold....always. LOL Drives me nuts but it's part of why I prefer working in an office and why I moved away from Idaho....LOL That said, it's just about as cold here as it is in Idaho right now. lol
If people want to do drinks Friday night I could be down for that. I wish I could make it Wednesday but it will be hard enough to get Thursday and Friday off.

Hi ladies!

Just checking in since I don't do that very often. I'm such a FaceBooger these days...the dark side of online communication.

Looking at the schedule, it appears that Friday evening would be the best option.

What time?? 9:00? 10:00?

I just made that reservation today, but I can still add you. The manager was very nice.

Do any of you locals/cast members know if they still have the 4th pin in the passholder set available at the parks? I have the first three and need the last one (Mickey). It wasn't out yet when I was there in October. And I can't find it on ebay either. Help! LOL

Sarah we are staying at the Staybridge on Manchester for the first few days which would include the 31st. We are moving over to the DLH on the 2nd and I guess we were lucky because we got the last senior discount they were handing out. Looks like it is back to Harbor for us in 13

Good morning, ladies! It's the last weekend of 2012!!

Anyone have any fun plans for New Years Eve on Monday? Even though the Strip is always bustling with activity we've never once spent NYE down there. They close it off to cars and the people take over the streets. It's fun to watch on tv, but I do not want to go deal with that mess in person!
We usually have a quiet night at home, just the family. We'll order some food, watch movies and play games until the ball drops. Then, it's off to bed since Ruben works the next morning. Not very thrilling, but it's what we do. lol

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
