    March 30 and 31!

    Hi everyone! 31 year old professional here. Did the College program in 2005 and have been back a handful of times since. Last time was about 6 years ago and can't wait to check things out. I'll be in town for work and have two entire days before I'm on to the next place.

    I'm OK with going by myself, but I've never done a solo trip like this so I'm also not opposed to meeting up with someone else for a fun time at the parks! I worked at DAK (Operations at Tarzan Rocks and The Boneyard) while I was on the CP. Let me know if you will be around. If I don't get to catch up with anyone, enjoy your trips and I'll try to do the same with mine.

    I'm arriving 7th now. Will get 6 full days :-)

    You're going solo for 2 whole weeks? I thought *I* was being extravagant with my 6 days :-)

    I am doing a Solo at Disneyland, April 14 - 16, though I did not plan a park day for the 14th. I was just going to hang around DTD, Trader Sam's, maybe do that Star Wars Void thing.

    I haven't added the dining plan, still debating the value of it. I do intend to do a nice TS dinner each night.

    I'm up for meeting for some rides both days, 4 parks in 1 day definitely sounds like it will be a difficult challenge for you to complete.

    So, I'm doing Disneyland on April 14-16, with park days on the 15th and 16th. On the 14th though I will arrive around mid-day and I do plan to go hang out at Trader Sam's (early to beat the crowds) and play the Star Wars VR thing. If anyone want's to hang out at Trader Sam's or do the Star Wars thing, I am up for that. If you come to Sam's you have a drink coming on me because I will want a mug, but I don't want to drink it. Happy to hang out in the parks too.

    In my experience they've let people buy the mugs without getting the drinks.

    Hmm, that was not my experience at Grog Grotto, and I assumed it was the same. There I wanted a Nautilus (so, so badly), and the waiter said they had to pour the drink. I said I would pay full price, but you don't have to fill it. He said no it must be poured. He said I didn't have to drink it, or I could take two sips, or whatever, but it would be poured and served. I felt bad wasting it, especially with as big as the Nautilus is. I did end up asking the waiter to ask another table who was hanging out if they wanted it, and he did and they did, and they waved me over and we hung out all night having a fun time. Turned out they were off-duty CMs and they were awesome! So really, I don't mind the policy and don't mind buying a drink for a DIS friend either. Of course, I have my Nautilus now, and that was the expensive one.

    I guess we'll see how the west coast version handles it, but I had assumed it would be the same. I'll get my mug either way, so I'm not worried about it. It's all good.
