just wondering

How many people are going to Disney specifically because of Disapalooza and how many people already were going to be at Disney with a previously planned trip and just lucked out that Disapalooza falls within their dates?

Due to lots of pricey issues with our house in a row, a Disney trip was out of the question this year. Then some pixie dust was sprinkled my way when Disapalooza was announced. It also happens to be my birthday weekend. A lot of great people were born in early December. Walt Disney -12/5, Pete Werner -12/6 and ME (Jean) - 12/7. I took it as a sign. We could afford to do a weekend trip specifically for DAP. We will not be buying park tickets, only our DAP party tickets. I am also looking forward to the podcast taping. We will get somewhere more affordable off property to stay. I figure since xmas decorations will be up, we can check out some of the deluxe resorts, Downtown Disney and just enjoy ourselves without going commando in the parks.

I am very excited about DISapalooza and am looking forward to meeting everyone.

Glad to see Stone Mountain, along with Grayson GA, will be there!

(My trip was planned in early 2013 and FINALLY coincided with a DAP event! )

I specifically go this time of year for DISApalooza [land] and the other annual Disney internet community meets. I am an incredibly responsible, hard working wife and mother. But sometimes I just need a break from the family; nothing illicit or nefarious. This is my time to do what I want to do when I want to do it, i.e. Hall of Presidents, Beauty and the Beast Show, reading a book at the pool, etc.

And then I'm ready to come home and be with my family again. Makes me a better person.

I had no plans to go back to Disney this year. And I've never been to a DAP before. I just decided to go for it. No particular reason other than I want to. I cannot wait!

I got lucky on DAP. I go down every year, sometimes with the kids, sometimes solo, for the Christmas parade taping weekend, usually the first weekend of December. Last year my oldest was lucky enough to get caught on camera during one of the concerts at the castle. Nothing like seeing yourself on TV at Disney on Christmas morning

Myself, I happen to be going on a cruise starting 12/7 and flying in 12/6, so it's luck on my part.

We go to Disney every year during the week of Dec 11th for our Disney Wedding Anniversary. We were thrilled to hear DISapalooza was going to be while we were on vacation! This is our first event. Can't wait!!!

We had a trip planned. To be honest, I never listened to a podcast
Someone posted on a Facebook group about this event and it is going to be on our only night "off"... Toy Story Mania is my absolute favorite ride so I signed up and then checked out the podcast. Now Tuesdays have a new meaning at my house... I love the podcast! Can't wait to meet everyone and the food sounds sooo good. I'm excited to try something new

I was planning on a late Nov, early Dec trip. When I heard about DAP, I planned around it. I will be going solo and love the freedom it gives me to do and see the things that I enjoy. I am looking forward to meeting people that love Disney as much as I do.

We were supposed to go on a Panama Canal Cruise this month, but this fell through. A good friend of mine is going on a cruise on the Magic out of Miami in mid December and we decided to join her. As we come all the way from the UK, we decided to add some time in Orlando before the cruise and it just so happened that this coincided with DISApalooza.
