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 are also in that age range and will be there from the 9th to the 24th.  We have a 13 yr son, 11 yr daughter and a 6 yr old son.

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 we were at magic kingdom yesterday also. Went orange picking and then played miniature golf at Fantasia gardens today. We plan on magic kingdom in the am and Epcot in the afternoon. Is it safe on here to place a phone #?

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. :)

Forgot to add that we'll be at DisneyQuest at 11:30 am on Monday - not sure how long we'll stay, though.

We did Quest yesterday and Splitsville. Today we braved HS and it was rather chilly! Tomorrow we planned to do a pool day and then MVMCP-hoping it will be warmer!

Just re-visiting the weather and Monday looks like our best day to get back to the water park (for our schedule). I vote for a Meet N Greet at Blizzard Beach instead!  ;) I plan to be between  the Ski Patrol (teen area) and the exit from Team Boat Springs which is also near the smaller kid area as well. Tip: you want blue locker rental for that area.  ;)

I did not check this site today. I just got message a few minutes ago through email. Sorry. I am not good with computers. Our plan tomorrow is church in the am and DQ around 1. Thought about blizzard beach, but my boys don't want to go. I guess if they met up with other enthusiastic kids they may want to go. Suppose to be warmer I think.

Plan the meet and greet on Monday. Older boy has class in the am at MK. :)

Our plan for tomorrow (Sunday) is Epcot. Monday we are going to see what the weather does. If rainy (as I last saw prediction for) then we will be at DQ; if not then we might try to get in a BB.  Tuesday both girls have classes. Younger at Animal and older at MK. Rest of the week is uncertain yet; again, we will see what the weather does. The plan was  for a park day Wednesday and Friday. Thursday is a *down day* as we have movie tickets for Thursday evening. Sat may be another down day with possibly both BB in daytime & DQ that night. We leave FL on Sunday.
