I can't wait for it to open! Such a variety!
I finally got my May trip planned!
Thanks to Airtran and their one day special on April 9th: $49 ATL to MCO, Tori and I are going Mothers Day Weekend!
That "one day special" is back "by popular demand - today only!" Unfortunately, it only covers travel April 23 to June 6.
What a perfect time to go. Unfortunately, you will just miss Kristin! They get there on the 17th.
That's the weekend I wanted to go, but it didn't work with Tori's and my schedule. I really wanted to see Mickey Dolenz; I'm sure it will be a beautiful tribute to Davy Jones.
Still, I think spending Mothers Day at Epcot, doing the Segway tour with Tori, is a wonderful way to spend the day! (JD & I have done the tour -- this was on Tori's "bucket list"! )
This sounds like it will be perfect!!!
And I'm sooooooooooooo jealous, as I'm still not sure our Disneyland trip in May is going to happen (Mark's work again!) Oh well, if it doesn't, it'll be a trip to NY this summer, or a total redo of the bathroom at home.
Boooo - I was really hoping Night Ranger would be there during our time at WDW. I need to redeem myself from being a bit of a mess last time we saw them....it was not long after my MIL had passed and she would have been there rockin with me instead of Mark!
2012 Eat to the Beat Concert Line Up
Night Ranger September 28

Smash Mouth October 11-12 NEW!
Air Supply October 15-16
Gin Blossoms October 18-19
The Pointer Sisters October 24-25

I'm sorry Night Ranger won't work out this trip. Are they really only there for 1 night though?
I've seen Mickey Thomas probably 6 or 7 times -- enough already!!
I am looking forward to Air Supply as I used to enjoy their songs -- can't say that I've heard any of their hits for many years though!
I hope DL works out for you, but if not - NY trip or a bathroom upgrade are also things to be excited about!
I'm going to try to get Tori and myself to NYC for a long weekend this summer.
Phew -- I got nervous for a moment with that last post. I got a white screen of death, then the "warning" about a failed socket or whatever!!
I sure hope these boards get back to normal soon!!!
I would love to get to NYC for a long weekend this summer too. One of Kathrin's friends from HS (Tug Coker) made his Broadway debut in Magic/Bird this week and I would love to see him there. We saw him in a production in DC a couple of years ago and have enjoyed his TV work, but this is special. Alas, I can think of no way to make it happen.
Tracy - I am sorry your trips aren't working out the way you wished they would. I hate when that happens!!! But I agree with Laura; a new bathroom might not be a bad trade-off!
Are they the Hey Now band? I know I've heard of them, but can't place them.
I used to love Air Supply - I'm hoping to see them too - I'm gonna guess Mark would rather poke his own eyes out than see them, but I'll drag someone with me.
I'm kind of with you ladies...our bathroom is stuck in I don't even know what decade - yellow plastic tiles on every wall and white ones on the ceiling. It would be nice to have that redone. Then again, I'd really like to go back to NY for a few days, so we'll see. Maybe just do half the bathroom! There's always next year for CA.
From Twitter: "Smash Mouth has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide with hits Walkin on the Sun, All Star, I'm a Believer and many more."
Since they did a cover of I'm a Believer I'll give them a chance!!
You can drag me and JD!!
Hope the plans get worked out soon...
David and I are headed to Vegas on Thursday, anyone got any food ideas?
YAY - I did know who they were, I think the lyric is "Hey now, you're an all star, something something." And the I'm a "Believer" was the theme song in one of the Shrek movies.
Sounds like a plan!
Have a great trip and here's one to avoid - StripSteak in the Mandalay Bay. It was on a lot of the "must" lists and DH and I went there for our anniversary dinner. It was way overpriced and not really great food...kind of like most Disney restaurants - did I say that out loud? Maybe it's because we're from Chicago and have really good, but pricey, restaurants and thought it would at least match up...it didn't.
OK, DW and I will bite. We'll be at BLT 10/8 - 10/17 for our 30th Anniversary Celebration Trip. We'd love to meet up with some fellow DIS'ers as WDW can get so lonely sometimes!
I am assuming post #2 is still the official updated GTG time/locations. With 22 pages of comments, it's a bit overwelming trying to sort everything out.
Aside from a few must have ADR's, we are leaving our schedule open to just enjoy the spontinaty of a a long trip.
Looking forward to the subscription updates.
I'm glad you found us! Yes, post #2 will have the official meets. We do lots of talking (and often stray off topic!) so no need to read the other pages!
Not much in post 2 yet as we're waiting to see what paid events and deminars WDW releases -- hopefully by July.
Are you considering doing the Swan/Dolphin Food & Wine Classic (10/12-13)? It's a great way to try lots of menu items at the Swolphin restaurants. If the weather cooperates, all the booths are out on the Causeway. If it rains, they move it inside the Swan.
Normally we do Food & Wine Festival from the first day (in late September) through the 1st week in October. Breaking tradition this year specifically because of the Swolphin dates!
Congrats on 30 years! "JD" (aka Dwight!) and I are also celebrating 30 yrs this trip! Looking forward to meeting you and your wife.
Please check back here from time to time - especially if you haven't gotten any update notifications. The boards have been inconsistent with those lately.
Hi Gals, Looks like most of us have been working hard to get things in order for the DIS meet.
I am not sure what is happening with us at this moment. I mentioned on the AKL thread that there was a surprise planned for later in October. I don't know what, where or who is involved. But....I have an idea it may be the whole family getting together to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I don't know when I will find out?? But I am really hope it will be held at WDW.
I have our trip starting on September 24th at BC CL then we transfer over to AKL CL for a few days, then Shades of Green to save money whole we wait for you all to arrive for the meet. I have a room and the package booked for us at the Swan for Thursday through Saturday.
Now I need to book air fare tomorrow....but DH said to hold off "He would take care of the tickets". He has never in almost 30 years handled anything regarding our travel. So now I am curious!
I am so looking forward to meeing you all in person. I really want a group of us to go to the Ditch for a drink while we are there. I have never been there, had to have Brandi explain to me where it was. I had never even heard of it. Must be in a dark spot over there. I probably walked by numerous times.
Good night all it is 2:25 AM here and I lost track of my DIS time. Must sleep. Hope everyone has a good WEDNESDAY! (I got the day right this time).
Ann, I wish I was going to meet with everyone, too. I would walk you right over there and introduce you to the Ditch, a.k.a. La Cava.....
You guys will have to have a drink for me and David.
