Re: Orlando Gathering - possible group activities
Sounds to me that the end of the week there are more likely to be
more t-netters around?....so I am putting forward two ideas here
of things we could do as a group towards end of the week. If you
would like to do either of these type of days can you let us know
which day would be your preference to fit round your plans. I plan to be 'doing the parks' myself as well as these possible
group days, so again, if you want to do any of the parks and have
a preference for days please can you let me know if you want to
join me (I can get discount for anyone coming into Universal Parks
with me due to Annual Pass).
I really need to plan my week out day by day to make sure I get to
do all the things I want to squeeze in on my trip, so PLEASE let
me know of any preferences of days/activites before I do my
I plan to do the following parks:
Disney - Magie Kingdom, MGM, EPCOT
Universal - Islands of Adventure, Movie Park

tours and DisneyQuest

arriving a few days earlier than the gathering so I can
realistically fit all this in LOL....however when any of you plan
to be 'in town' I really want to spend time with you..so help me
