Title: WonderCon 2017 Meet ups
Post by: alyssa on February 10, 2017, 07:33:17 AM
Anyone interested in organizing us in to a meet up or two?  [member=314]Transmute Jun[/member] ;)

I'll be around Wednesday night - Saturday nights.  I'm not sure about Sunday night. 

I do have fond memories of that Chicken and Waffle place...

Link to doc for attendance

I will not be organizing a meetup. Since we're back to Anaheim, that means my family is back with me and we'll be spending our 'free' time at Disneyland. So I'm not going to be available after the con/evenings to organize anything. I haven't ever been able to attend a WonderCon meetup in Anaheim.

Now if anyone wants to meet up with us for park touring at Disneyland one morning, I am happy to organize that!

I think, & I'll check, the marriott hotel did a really good buffett dinner one night.  it was pricey at $25 ish but all you could eat & the chocolate deserts were amazing....

I'll call them & see if they still have it and what night- & check reserving a table.

Khann got back to me with a suggestion of Korean BBQ..... ;) I'm up for it but i like new & different

You are not the only one doing Disneyland that weekend.  The Electrical Parade...'nuff said.

I am definitely down for WonderCon meet ups! I'll be in Anaheim from Thursday afternoon until Saturday night (I'll be leaving for LA early Sunday morning).

Also, if we are lacking organizers, I am more than willing to help out with one of the meet ups! Seeing as this will be my first time visiting Anaheim, I'm not really sure that I'm the best person to decide where to hold a meet up - but if anyone has suggestions, I'd be happy to gauge interest, call and make a reservation, etc.  :D

my only thought

was to book the restaurant/bar at the marriott hotel- it's super easy

I am down to do whatever since for the first time I'm actually staying up there Friday and Saturday nights and I will close the Con out on Sunday.

[member=3884]mlgagne[/member] why you leaving early to LA? Have some cool plans there?

The LA portion of my trip is the mostly the "business" part (with WonderCon being the "fun" part, haha). One of the studios my job works with regularly is based in that area, so I'm hoping to meet up with them while I'm out there. I've also been considering re-locating to the LA for a while now but I've never actually been there, so I want to get a feel for what it's like. No immediate plans or anything - just weighing my long-term options, so to speak. But I'm probably also going to try to do some touristy things like sight-seeing, going to a show, etc. while I'm out there  :)

Nice, LA is a lot of fun. I recommend definitely going to Griffith Observatory. It is amazing up there.

Try to get a payroll adjustment, housing rates have gone through the roof

Article on rents, the west side is even worse.

I used to live in El Segundo which is just south of LAX airport , in 2016 i was paying $1,950  for a large two bedroom two bath apartment, then someone bought the building and they kicked us all out. They refurished the building and now rents are $2,800 per month

We need someone to take the lead.

I'm up for Friday night.

If nothing is planed by the time I get back to LA I'll book the buffet at the Marriott.

How many people want to get together on Friday night. We need a head count.

[member=2389]Mario Wario[/member] and or [member=2226]Mel[/member] can u keep track?

Post by: Mel on March 13, 2017, 06:32:55 PM
I will do whatever and I like the idea of the buffet so add me to the list for that.  Let's start it:

Who here wants to do the Marriot buffet as a meetup on Friday night of WCA? Speak now! I'm not eating carbs until WCA, so just know witnessing me unleash on a buffet may provide entertainment/spectacle.

Depending on the panel schedule for Friday, I might be down for this! I'll update in a few days once CCI releases the official schedule :D

So let's say, we will have a dinner meet somewhere on Friday night. I looked at Marriott site and seems they only buffet at breakfast. We have lots of close dinner options though. Including the famous Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.

More concrete details and times once we see the programming schedule.

I agree with this, I always try to go, but the schedule and my daughters usually de-rail those plans.

I've never been to the other place that Miss Kitty mentioned, how is that place?  My daughters are going through DL withdrawals since our season passes expired last summer.  They could use something Disney related.  And I could probably use a tiki drink!

It's great. It is small though and afaik they don't take reservations. Really good drinks and pretty good food. It's definitely a Disney experience as far as the decor and immersion in the theme.

I just started Riverdale tonight and I loved the premiere. That's definitely going to be a panel I want to see......the DC Animated movie I'd skip for an FoCC meet. They are showing it again on Sunday I think.....that's just me though.

I called them before i left the country and asked if they still had a dinner buffet- they said yes. Can someone call the Marriott and ask again? in addition ask them if they accept reservations. 

i don't see why we couldn't do two meet ups. one on Friday night & the other on Saturday.  I will say meetups do work better when we have reservations for dinner- I don't know if there's another super close place for dinner.- While i do like Rosco's- it's a hike and/or carpooling. If someone wants to volunteer & can find another close place that accepts reservations for Saturday, that'd be super NICE.

Please fill out the google doc with your interest for a meet up Friday or Saturday.

OK, I called. They only do buffet during very busy days. They said it would definitely be going during WonderCon. He said when we know how many people that we can make reservations on Open Table. So sounds like a deal to me! Just need to decide a time and how many people want to attend! You can count me in. I requested access to the spreadsheet. It's view only at the moment.

Okay, I *might* be able to come to the meetup on Saturday, depending on time. My husband and daughter (and maybe son) want to go see the US Premiere of Class, so I will be free during that time.

What is the price of the buffet? I might bring my son, but he's not a big eater, so I don't want to pay $$$ for him to eat very little.

i thought it was 25 or 30 all you can eat but if i recall correctly, there was also a menu to order off of.

I don't have time to do much research this week (work is a little bit crazy in "pre-vacation" mode) but if someone has a suggestion for another close place to go on Saturday, I don't mind calling and making the reservation! :)

If Trader Sams is busy later Saturday night (go at some point just to check it out! It's like the Tiki Room!!), the bar at the Grand Californian is beautiful and quiet.

Roscoe's does not take reservations. We'd just have to wing it (haha) like we did a couple years ago.

I'm saying, YES, the Marriott thing is set in stone. We just need to decide on a time.

Everyone who wants to attend the Marriott buffet meetup on Friday evening, please go into the spreadsheet and add when you will be available in the column along with how many people. Program has been out for a week, so we should all know what panels, ect we will want to do and when we will be out of the Con. Then we can pick a time that serves the most people and I will make a reservation. The following people have shown interest on the sheet:

Yes to both! But I think I'm the one who put my availability in anyways... ;D

Not sure if it matters at this point, but I also think I accidentally put my availability in your row rather than in my own - /facepalm! Too much happening in such a short period of time today, haha. In any case, I think I've fixed it now!

Hi Mel, my apologies. I and Omraged9 will be coming for real.  Omraged9 is busy ay work these days and I have not heard back from her.  At this point, I'd have to say that I will go with any time that works for you.  Sorry!

ETA: This has been done, no longer needed


Can any of you go to the link below and make a reservation for 6? I made one for 8 and it's the most people it would let me put in and give me a table and the closest I can get is 6:45pm. Can anyone else go in here on Open Table and make another one for 6 people at 6:45. It won't let me make two. I figure once we show up we can coax them into letting us sit near each other.

Ok I'm confused. I looked back at the meetup doc but didn't see a time to put next to it? I can do any time for the Friday meetup so 7pm is fine if everyone wants that. What is the Open Table reservation link for? Is it for Friday or Saturday? I can only go to the Friday one.

Can any of you go to the link below and make a reservation for 6? I made one for 8 and it's the most people it would let me put in and give me a table and the closest I can get is 6:45pm. Can anyone else go in here on Open Table and make another one for 6 people at 6:45. It won't let me make two. I figure once we show up we can coax them into letting us sit near each other.

Done! Confirming that I was able to reserve 6 people for 6:45pm on Friday.

Thanks! You are awesome. So, basically, that's a reservation for 14. I think the sheet says 15 total, but people always no-show and not everyone is responding, so I figure 14 is a safe number. I called the hotel and they said you can only reserve on Open Table and I asked if we made two and then showed up together would they let us all sit together and she said sure. So, we will see!

Not a problem! I agree, 14 is probably a safe bet. Now, fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly with the tables - though it sounds like we're good!  ;)

Darkron and I just made a reservation for 6 people at 6:45pm. Is that needed or should we cancel our reservation?

People who showed interest for FRIDAY NIGHT dinner at Marriott's restaurant, it is set. Reservation is for 14 people at 6:45pm and covers those who filled out the sheet. Please let me know if you can't make this so we can alter the reservation and aren't held waiting for arrival of someone who isn't going to be able to make it.

I'm excited to see you all!

I'm new to amiibos. I got the entire BotW set but what are these cards I keep hearing about. Seems so much easier than lugging around the figures.

It might be possible to use an Android phone, some apps, and some NTAG215 NFC chips to "backup" your Amiibos for better portability. Also Nintendo sells Amiibo cards for Animal Crossing.

Hate to do this to you too Mel, but I am not going tonight. Someone just offered me a chance to eat inside California Park that has reserved seating for the light/water show. Now for sure I am doing the Saturday night dinner. Don't worry, I will edit the info for the Google sheet.

Btw, what time is the dinner for tomorrow?
