We are older parents looking to meet up with families like us. My husband and I are 50/60 with two boys ages 12 and 9. We certainly look forward to meeting others as well, But checking to see if anyone else with similar situation.

Susan, I haven't scheduled a meet & greet for this year yet. We're leaving for DC next week and I'm focusing on reworking our entire trip due to the shutdown. Sigh...

 

Warmly,

Dianna

Hi Patty -

We're not staying at the group hotel but we're going w/ three of our four kiddos.  We're a little on the older side too -- I'm 49 and dh is 55.  Our youngest is 10.  We'll be at Disney the 12th - 22nd at POR and we're going to Sea World too.

We're 58/55 with a 13 year old son . We're staying off-property the first week (16th-23rd) then to the Dolphin for another 3 nights. We're going to the Universal class/park visit for the first time, then to 2 YES classes at the Disney parks. Would love to meet up! We are Disney fanatics, it's our preferred vacation destination, and are looking forward to this trip with Carolina Homeschoolers again (our 3rd time with this group!).

Oh Yes, I should have added in our dates. We will be there from the 9th-24th as well and staying off site. We've rented a condo about 6 miles from the parks. Both of mine have classes on Tuesday the 19th, in 2 different parks - YIKES! Super glad a friend is joining us. ;)

 

Subject to change depending on weather but so far I have planned to be at Disney Quest (great hang out/ meeting area) on the 13th, 17th and 22nd. If it rains on a day I've planned for Waterpark then we will switch those dates around.

My husband and I are older parents, too. (Our oldest is 26, and our youngest is 11, but then we also have 10 younger foster children we've called our own, too.) If you're planning on going to the group Disney Quest meet-up on Monday the week of our trip (see my last Disney update for more info), we can get to know each other better then.

 

Warmly,
Dianna

For anyone currently at WDW that would like to meet up we are at Disney Quest today. Too cold for water parks. ;) I can probably be found on floor 5 in dining area resting my feet after MK yesterday or stretching my legs a bit at the pinball machines. Blue paisley top. ;)

Susan, DisneyQuest is our only scheduled group meet. As you know, everyone gets busy and attendance at Disney meet-ups is relatively low. I promised my family I wouldn't make them do that anymore. :)
