    Dh and I decided on a last minute adult only trip to Orlando!!! I was very excited to see it was Mardi Gras!!!

    Anyone want to hook up and watch the parade and party??

    Also is this needed??

    VIP After Party at Pat O’Brien’s
    For just $15 plus tax, per person, on Mardi Gras event nights you’ll enjoy exclusive access to Pat O’Brien’s balcony and beads by the handful; private bar with Hurricane** and beer specials**; light appetizer buffet** and more.

    Darn, we're leaving on Feb. 7 or we would totally do the Pat O' Brien's after party with you. $15.00 seems like a good deal. We caught the end of a private party there a couple of years ago. The guys in the company gave me handfuls of free drink tokens!! Love the drunk business men!!:thumbsup2
    Are you going to be there anytime Feb 1-7? An adults night out would rock. My MIL and Mom are both coming woth us (built in babysitters!!);)

    Hey Laurabearz!
    I'm heading down to visit my family in Tampa - when I saw Mardi Gras and KC & the Sunshine Band on Sat. night, I decided to head over to Orlando earlier and check it out. Was planning to go with a friend, but she will be working one of the beer stands that night...

    Send me a PM if you want to meet!! :)

    Heya Mac ((hugs))

    Well it seems the parade and the concerts maybe at the same time... The parade is more important to us, than the concert..

    well getting a good spot for the parade is more important than being right up front for the concert (I think at this point KC would look better the farther you are away from him lol)

    I signed up for the Text messages so if any new details come through on that I will post it.

    Any idea if there are any added charges to signing up for the text details besides what carrier would charge?

    I got a reply with a message that said they will send 3-5 message a week and the instructions on how to stop the texts.

    We will be there with the kids and my mom, so we might actually be interested in meeting some DISers later on in the evening (prob after 9:30) once we get the kids settled.
