I am totally up for a meeting in Orlando. I may have a problem with the date as the day prior is my mother's birthday. Gotta see how things work out.

Edit:
Just a note that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince releases that week (on the 15th). I have actually seen each of the HP movies in Downtown Disney, but, alas, there will not be a repeat this year. I make this note simply to let you know that Downtown Disney does get swamped with kiddies (and the likes of me) going to see the movie on opening weekend.

I can definitely make it! Even if the date changes I will be there, it's only about 30 minutes from my home.

I don't know Orlando sufficiently to recommend a place. I do know that Bongo's is fairly close to the theater but I have found that this restaurant does not attract the kids. Seems the kids are taken to the Rainforest Cafe and Planet Hollywood. Bongo's may be the right place if Disney is the destination.

Kissimmee does have a slew of chain restaurants but, again, I am at a loss as to where to go there.

I liked Downtown Disney, because

1. It's is easy to find
2. It's fun ;-)
3. It is close to I-Drive so anyone who wants to, can go stock up on postcards afterwords, or before the meet-up.

They also sell Disney postcard there too. And the last time I was there, I found some amazing 3-D postcard at one of the art galleries. I don't know if they still have them though.

Mood: recovering from surgery :(

[*] posted on 3-5-2009 at 12:49 PM


We weren't able to visit my dad this March like normal (since I had surgery) so I was hoping to get down to Florida this July (during my vacation). I don't know what the dates are off the top of my head - but if it's possible I'll definitely be there! I'll do some more checking and let you know!

It was just Mrs. Chimoy, MarthicaAna and myself, but we had a fantastic time! Lots of laughing, telling stories, and signing LOTS of postcards :-)

I think we should try for another one in January at the big postcard show at the Orlando fairgrounds - what does everyone think? (Pretty sure it will be jan 2nd and 3rd, we could meet on Sat. the 2nd) - It cost's $5.00 to get in, but there are THOUSANDS of postcards to look at! I've gone for two years now and spent the entire day each time.
