Yay! A couple of more familiar faces...Karen - I'm so glad that you and Kaye are on the trip as well. I thought that Jason and I (and of course K&J and P&W) were the only double dippers next year. Quite a few people that I'll get to see at least twice next year. :banana: Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones on this trip!!

I'm so excited to do the BSM trips next year. I just need to tell my mom we're going. John & Kevin did a great job Sunday telling her all the great stuff on BSM.

Hey everyone! I'm Kim and my mom is Mary Ann! We are so excited for this trip. It's her first time ever to California and the first time I get to go for fun. I go every year to a meeting out there but all I have ever seen is the San Francisco airport and the hotel we stay at.

I'm excited to spend the year hopefully getting to know ya'll and then spend this amazing time with new friends!

Look at you lucky ducks! I can't believe how many of you are doing BOTH trips! Well, I shouldn't be surprised about Jason. Hasn't he done this trip more than anyone other than Pete and Walter? :rotfl2: You will love Disneyland at Christmas. The Haunted Mansion and Small World overlays are wonderful.

In addition to all of you, I'm having a mini-reunion with Melanie and Eric. We met doing this tour in December 2008.

Very excited to be on both of the trips! I could really go for some of the fruit infused water that they serve in the lobby of the hotel in Hollywood (it'll always be the Renaissance to me) right now!

There are things I think I'd do differently this time around. I might need to find out what info you had gleaned from doing this trip so often. The most spontaneous thing I did on mine I'd do in a heartbeat again if the stars aligned. Kathy Griffin was doing a show at the Theater Formerly Known as Kodak on the welcome dinner night. My friend and I went, and it was fantastic.

Hi everybody. This will be our 2nd ABD BSM trip. We did this trip in Dec 2008 & want to do it again with everything new out in California. Can't wait to meet everyone. It will by myself & my husband Eric.

Hi Melanie,

I really enjoyed your trip report from your last BSM! I read it before I went on my first one in Apr 2010, and it really helped me to prepare!

Yay, you made it to the discussion! :hug:

And if any of you doubt how powerful the network of the DIS is, I met Melanie and Eric on a prior BSM tour. I also met a bunch of foodies from the Restaurants board. One of them was on the same cruise as Melanie last fall, was it? Anyway, Melanie had seen pics of the couple I knew and introduced herself as "a friend of Lori". I thought that was very cool.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all over the next year! This will also be my 2nd ABD BSM trip. It will have been a few years since my last trip by the time this one rolls around. I'm really looking forward to visiting Disneyland with all the recent changes that have been happening.

All you experienced BSMers....

I would love to hear about anything I need to know. I'm a compulsive planner but I have gotten it through my head that I don't have to for this trip…

So if there are any tips about what to pack or whatever I would love to hear all about it.

Look at the daily itinerary on the ABD website...on the Hollywood days there is some free time (but not much). If you like to plan, then plan those times. I know you won't have any trouble filling up the time on the DLR days. ;) ABD really packs in the schedule...even if you only do the ABD items, then you won't have one day that is not filled with wonderful activities.

I recommend coming in a day early (if possible). It's nice to have a buffer day to get on the right schedule (even if it is only 3 hours) before the adventure begins.

As far as packing, bring what you would for any trip to a Disney park. You may want to bring a couple of dressy casual outfits. You may want to dress up a little for the welcome and farewell dinners. That being said, if you want to wear your typical park clothes, then you most likely won't be the only one. There really is not a strict dress code or anything.

We (DW and I) want in on the trip! Been waiting a few years to be able to do it. I sent Kevin an e-mail, hopefully there's room for two more (DD is going to not be happy when we leave her behind.)
