Hello, ladies!! This weekend went by so fast. It was a busy but fun one. It was nice meeting with Jane and Michele today. After lunch, Ruben and I went to see Taken 2. I liked it. It was good, not too over the top but very action packed. Now, time to get ready for another long week ahead.

Glad you had fun at the Ren Faire! Hope Noelle is having a great time at the dance!
Like Michele said, it's turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Yum!
Noelle had so much fun at the dance. Then they all came home, raided the kitchen, and stayed up talking until almost 4 a.m.!!

That sounds really special.

That's fine. Saturday is the group tiara photo with the princesses and the Small World group ride, so who ever is doing the tour will probably miss that as they are both in the morning.

I really want to do the WIWF tour, but that price is a little steep. I'd be all for the Fantasmic Dessert though!

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner at my Dad's last night and really enjoyed watching Seth run around the house chasing, and being chased by his uncle. It was the first time he's been to his Grandpa's and been in a decent mood, so I am glad that my Dad got to see the "real" Seth finally. Usually Seth is just a crabby pants when we go to his house.

It was a really long drive, but we made a stop at the mall so I could go to the Disney Outlet store, so all was good. Ended up coming out with an Oso stuffie and a Toy Story Alien kids cup for Seth, and a cute Stitch mug for me. And I only spend $20! Too bad I couldn't get deals like that online! I could if it wasn't for shipping!

We've got this day off and then it's back to work tomorrow. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Who's hungry??

OKay ladies, we need to start thinking about where we want to eat during this trip.

This is the schedule we have so far:

Schedule - 2013

**This is a work in progress. Times, events, meals, and activities will be added as they are planned out, so keep checking back for the latest updates! Thanks!

Wednesday, February 27: (lime green shirt)
Arrivals at various times throughout the day and evening
Lunch: probably a counter service would be best
Dinner: perhaps in DTD for those who are arriving in the evening and do not want to use up a park day




Thursday, February 28: (last trip's pink shirt - PM Melody/tinkermell if you need one)
Breakfast:
Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour for those already here
Lunch:
5:30 p.m. - Meet and Greet Party @ Carousel Hotel (includes dinner)




Friday, March 1: (our new group shirt - more details to come)
Breakfast: On your own before photo/hunt (the hunt and photo start early!)
Traditional group photo in front of castle
Scavenger Hunt
Lunch: this should be in the general area as the end of the hunt
Dinner:




Saturday, March 2: (grey shirt)
*Optional off-site day at Newport Beach for those interested*
Breakfast:
Traditional Princess photo, followed by group ride on It's a Small World (if possible, if not, group photo in DCA)
OR
2nd Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour for those who missed it on Thursday
Lunch:
Dinner:
Fantasmic dessert seating (Time TBD)



Sunday, March 3: (your favorite Disney shirt)
Last day of the trip
Group farewell breakfast @ Mimi's Cafe



Melody, or anyone else on the hunt team, where is the hunt ending? Last year it worked out nicely having lunch right at Hungry Bear which is where the hunt ended. So, for example, if the hunt was ending in Carsland, lunch could be at Flo's Cafe. Or if it was ending in Pacific Wharf, there are lots of tables and several options there for dining. Or it could end over by the new Paradise Garden Grill and Boardwalk Pizza. Again, lots of tables and two choices for dining.


I am going to say that I think dinner the first night (Wed) should be out of the park. Not everyone has a pass, and those who are arriving that evening might not want to use an entire day of their park hoppper just to go in to the park to eat, kwim? Someplace in DTD or one of the hotels would be nice.


And, I also wanted to suggest that lunch on Wed should probably be a counter service since at that point in the day only a handful of the ladies will already be there. Having a counter service lunch the first day worked out nicely last time. If you were there, you showed up for lunch and looked for all the lime green shirts. Easy.



So discuss amongst yourselves... Feel free to offer any suggestions! Keep in mind of course that although the trip seems long, time flies by and there simply isn't enough time to fit in all the yummy food Disney has to offer so we'll all have to compromise on some things. Thanks, ladies!! Now, let's talk FOOD!

We have had a few ladies that have come from the east, but i don't we have had an Ohioan. Always fun to have new ladies join, no matter where you are from.

So, I have been meaning to listen to the Podcast lately, but haven't had the chance. I guess I need to, considering we must have been mentioned. How fun! Do you do Podcasts also? Is that how you know Mary Jo?
Hey everyone!

Melody, Daisy is from Ohio!!

We're back from a weekend in Mexico, now getting ready for our DL family trip we won this weekend. I definitely need a vacation to recover from my vacations!!

Also, just an FYI, I have two Walk in Walt's Footsteps tours listed just in case we need two. One for Thursday for those who will be arriving Wednesday, which is quite a bit of you. And, one for Saturday for those who will miss the one on Thursday.

Keep in mind, attending the tour on Saturday will basically mean missing out on the tiara/princess photo as those both take place in the morning around the same time.

I'm not entirely sure we are going to need two tour times though. It seems like the interest was strong, until the price was posted! Not that I blame anyone. That is too expensive for a tour...imo.

Beth - my suggestions

Wed - what about dinner somewhere at Garden Walk for a change? Cheesecake Factory or PF Changs?

Thursday Lunch - maybe meet up at Jolly Holiday Bakery?

Friday - since the hunt is in DCA this year, I would suggest maybe doing the group photo in front of the CCR fountain. I know it would be breaking tradition but logistically would make sense. But if everyone still wants the castle photo - we would just have to make sure we start it right at park opening to allow time to finish photo and then get everyone over to DCA

Friday Lunch - I will let you know what would work best for meeting up after the hunt

I think we need a dinner (or lunch) at CCR - maybe Friday night?

It would be nice to meet up for lunch at Flo's one of the days - just not sure about the seating. It might be hard with our large group

What about Plaza Inn for a character breakfast?

I think your plan for Friday makes a lot of sense. I'd hate to have to run back and forth between the parks first thing in the morning to get a picture.
Do you think there's enough space for all of us near the fountain! If not, maybe we could meet at the WOC viewing area and get a pic with Paradise Pier in the background?

And I think a late breakfast at Plaza Inn would be fun!

I've never been to the Plaza Inn, so I would be ok with that! Actually I think I am ok with anything. Would really love a breakfast at Surf's Up, since I can never seem to find Stitch anywhere else, but I understand if not everybody else wants to go there.

Also still deciding if I want to do the scavenger hunt or not. I'd like to take at least a bit of time to go around on my own and take photos/shop, etc. So I think I might use that time to do that.

I am not a city person, I like green and seasons, and San Diego Public schools suck bad. Oh, and I have found that S.

They say the prices should start to slide back down this week. Then, Nov 1 they can start selling the "winter blend" which is cheaper. Apparently, the CA govt has petitioned the EPA to let them start selling the winter blend early since they have PLENTY of that on hand. Don't think that will happen soon enough to be much help though.

I read all of that too. Made my head ache.


[UOTE=mommaU4;46382956]Good morning, ladies!




That's fine. Saturday is the group tiara photo with the princesses and the Small World group ride, so who ever is doing the tour will probably miss that as they are both in the morning.[/QUOTE]


TIARAS!!!!!! Hurrah!

Are we still wearing Tiaras? If so, I am so utterly and completely in agreement. If not, well, might be a wee pouty.


Hello everyone. I am not much of a group meal participant, so do not have a lot to add with the thoughts of meals and the like, but TIARAS? That is serious stuff.

I heard we were talking about food so here I am! Rancho del Zocalo was a great place to meet the first day, very easy to find the other lime green shirts arriving.

I'm excited for the Fantasmic Dessert, it'll be my first time and my birthday


Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadian Divas!

Garden Walk would be fun. It's kind of far though. Might be tough for those with mobility issues.

As for the group photo before the hunt, I agree it should be in DCA since it needs to be convenient to the start of the hunt. And, it's not really breaking tradition because we have done the group photo other places such as in front of the floral Mickey.

Yeah, just let me know about the hunt ending point. If y'all made it close to Flo's we could work lunch in there that day.

Tiaras are very serious. I agree.

But, no worries, the group photo before the hunt in DCA is not the same as the princess photo on Saturday. That photo and the tiaras are sacred. LOL
