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? 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
    planning LOL

    I plan to do the following parks:
    Disney - Magie Kingdom, MGM, EPCOT
    Universal - Islands of Adventure, Movie Park
    Also hoping to do at least one of Disneys backstage/underground
    tours and DisneyQuest
    In case you are wondering how I plan to fit all that in.......I am
    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 help me
    out here with planning what to do on what day by stating your
