Disneyland Otter Meet... December anyone?

So out of THIS thread came the idea of having a Disneyland Otter meet, probably sometime in December to catch the Holiday decorations?

Just looking at my schedule and talking it over with TomOpus (who would travel the farthest, from San Diego), we're looking at PROBABLY the 4th or 11th of December. The 4th, I MIGHT have to leave early for a party, and the 11th, I DEFINATELY will have to leave early for another party. Sunday the 12th would be a better date, but it looks like Tom can't make it that day, but we shall see.

Also, if we go the 4th or 5th, we can catch the Candlelight Processional down Main Street, totally worth it IMO.

So who's in?? [U]FIRST TWO WEEKENDS in December, [/B]what is everyone's availability? What kind of pass does anyone have? (non-Passholders ALSO welome! ) I have the no-blackout-dates one, but please check your blackout dates before replying!

I hope this works out! If we have less than 6 people (including me), we get to use my disabled pass and skip most of the lines. Should be good times, as I have a commitment from TomOpus and 'Robo.

As for the rest of you peeps, let me know!





UPDATE: We have a DATE! If you're available SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11th, please post in this thread!

Yep, I will have a better idea of which days are good for me when I go to work on either Monday or Thursday. I might be able to swap some PTO to make Sunday work better for me.

Since 'bear and 'robo are late risers, it would be cool if an early riser like myself could make it. I usually get there when the park opens. Less crowds/lines and you can hit all the major rides pretty quickly.

I could probably do either day. I don't have a pass so if we could keep it to Disneyland and not CA Adventure that would be awesome (read: cheaper for me).

Edit: OTOH, $76 is a bit steep. I'll have to figure things out and confirm later.

Sounds like an awesome idea. Not sure I'm ready to shell out the cash to bring my son again so soon though (and also not making the trip by myself )

Oh, I've been to CA Adventure many times. Which is probably why I'm not interested in paying more for it.

Hey, if it turns out to be Giantrobo, TomOpus, me (and the boyfriend, who has never been an Otter but he's liked the two he's met ), and no one else, it's still a party.


BUT, we still hope others will come. :

And for those who don't want to shell out the $$ for park tix, we could always have dinner in Downtown Disney somewhere (where even the parking is free with restaurant validation), so you could join us for dinner at least.

Since I got my new pass, we don't wait in any line except Space Mountain. It works better if we have 6 people or less, but I'm guessing we're not going to have a hoard of Otters regardless.

Oh and yeah, you won't get me or Giantrobo there at Park opening. We have a mutual good friend who does sometimes, and we both think he's nuts.

Okay. I HAVE to ask this:

What DOES your screen name mean?

...are you by any chance related to that world famous family of acrobats...'THE GREAT ZOMBEANERS'?

I guess I like the openness of the park. There are no seas of baby carriers parked by the rides. The streets are wide-open so you don't have to dodge people left and right. It's the same reason I like shopping early. But, to each their own

I'd be in if I lived in California. As is, my schedule is booked through 2011. Sorry!

Ooh, I might be able to make it.
I'm less than half an hour from Disneyland and should be in town the first weekend of December. Though I'll be out of town the second weekend.
