Just wondering, nothing more but is the meet up all set now?

As far as I know, there are no meetups set at all.

Let's have a meet up at Trader Sams Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel. It's a pretty fun place!  Anyone? How about Saturday?

I love that place and I'd be game to go.

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.
