I would love to stay there, but the Best Westerns are right across the street from the entrance & are averaging $111/night ($89 W/TH & $134 F/S) for the Park Place Inn & $102/night ($89 W/TH & $116 F/S) for the Anaheim Inn (with AAA membership).

I am waiting to find out if a friend is coming with me or if I'll be bringing my daughter (who would bring a friend to go hang out with-she LOVES this idea) before I can commit to a roommate...otherwise I would LOVE to split a room with someone!!!
I think a lot of the girls stay at the HoJo every year. I have stayed there once before, and didn't mind it, so that is where I booked. What I really want to do is splurge a little bit and stay at a Disney hotel, but I'd definitely need a roommate on that. I've never been able stay at one of those yet, and I want to just once!

Also cittycat, keep me posted on your roommate situation, and maybe we could room together if you can't bring your friend. If you're ok with sharing a bed with your daughter, I don't mind rooming with more than one! Still waiting to hear on Jessica though. Not sure what she might end up doing.

Absolutely!! I'll keep watching the AP rates for the resort hotels...maybe if there's a good one we could split that! I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Hi Miss Mel!!

Bridget, glad I could make you smile. An old friend of mine came up with that saying, Mickey Quickie, a long time ago, and it seemed fitting for my Sept. trip.



Okay, the front page list of attendees has been updated. I think I have everyone now, but please double check and make sure your name is as it should be. Thanks!

Also, I need first names for some of our newest members so I can add you as well. (the list goes by first name)
bellally
hugabearjo
raftislander
debbiedoo
(is it Debbie?)

Can I just say that the list of attendees is now up to 70!!!!!!!!!!! And that's not even including the four I have yet to add. That's amazing!! Truly unbelievable. I feel sorry for our photopass photographer during the group castle photo!!!

That would be great if we could get a bit of a discount for one of those! It would be so awesome to stay on the grounds.

Hey newbies!

If you are interested in last year's pink tee, give me a PM. I'll see if I have your size left.

Because I'm scared of heights, well not really heights so much as I'm afraid of falling. Makes no sense that I love ToT so much.....LOL

Since I had the approval from my boss, I decided to check out prices when I got home, and they just happened to have a seat sale going on at WestJet, so I jumped on it and am now booked! I come into LA at 9:05pm on Wednesday the 27th, and my flight leaves at 1:15pm on Sunday the 3rd to come back home.

Now I just have to figure out hotel. Jessica is not 100% sure she can afford to stay at HoJo, and I know I can't afford a room all by my lonesome, so if there is anyone I can room with, or who could like to room with me (Ive got a room booked with 2 queen beds at the HoJo), please let me know! I know it's still early, but I want to make sure I can cancel my hotel in time, if need be.
I'm staying at the HoJo because the ladies who invited me to share their room with them already have it booked. I'm sure you'll find a roomie!!

Yes, I did mention something about a color I would like to use on Facebook. Would you believe I am going to try and use "teal blue" for our background? I believe I will use Hanes again, because the price is reasonable and they come in the size ranges we need. Derrick is supposed to have my design drawn up by the end of this month. I gave him the idea that was in my head, the type of art I wanted, and what to include in the image. I can't wait to see if what I have imagined, works. LOL! As soon as I have something in concrete, and figure out how to post a pic, I will post the image.
Unless you all trust me, and be surprised. Hee hee!



















LOL!!
I'm just a teasing. I know for some of you, that would be torture. I want all of you to be happy, and know what you are getting.
I'm excited!! I can't wait to see the design! Then you order the shirts and we all repay you right?

70 people! AMAZING!!!!! I'm soooooooooooooo excited about doing this!!!!

My friend Amy brought over a bunch of her beading stuff she doesn't use anymore, we went through it to see if I could use any of it for my Halloween costume, of which I only need to make my jewelry, wand, figure out my hair, get a corset top and some white leggings......I've been super lucky finding cheap stuff to use for it and I'm super excited! She also let me borrow her bead weaving instruction book so I'm thinking I might try to weave some leaves to add onto my costume. This costume is my OUAT themed costume, a bunch of us are doing a group deal, Amy is going to be the Queen, Tomoko is going to be Red, I'm going to be the Blue Fairy. We have others participating but I don't know who all just yet.

I use to live out there. In Atlanta. (Alpharetta). I do have other DIS friends on the east coast. Have been thinking about going next summer. I also want to go to new places as well.

Yes. My name is Debbie. . I will have to go look at your daily itinerary and see what day I would like to do. Then get with my job about which day I can take off. I only live 13 miles from park. Won't. Take me long to zoom over there. Unfortunately we don't put in our vacas til January. Gets approved so forth.

Has the group decided if they are going to Hollywood or Newport beach on that Saturday?

Debbie, I think we are leaning more towards the beach. (At least I know I am, lol) It's closer and would make a nice break, shop, eat lunch, etc.

Kerri, I added you to the group on Facebook. I don't know how to add someone to the group, unless I am their "friend" on FB.

Mel, that is a LOT of shirts!!! Yikes!!
