Here it is....hit print now! Quick! Before it changes!
Thursday evening October 13th
7p.m.-9p.m. For those in town, meet up at the lobby of the Grand Californian to pick up goodie bags and start the fun!
Friday, October 14th
6:30 a.m. Meet in front of the Desert Inn to go to the El Capitan and sea Ariel on the big screen. If you have not bought your tickets you can still do so over the next 2 days!!! If you are needing a ride to the theatre please email me or call me at 937-581-2719.
12 noonish - head back to Disneyland
1 p.m. Meet at the Rancho del Zocalo for lunch (right across from the Golden Horseshoe and right next to Big Thunder Mountain) and to receive your first fun activity. Right after lunch we will all march to Ariels grotto to take our group pictures!
6 p.m. Meet back up in front of Coke Corner on Main Street to get ready to watch the Parade. The Ariel and Ursula float are awesome at night so you want to be there at 6 to get a good spot. The parade starts at 7.
Right after the parade we will head up in front of the castle and stake out a good spot for the fireworks. If you haven't seen these you CAN'T miss 'em! They are the most wonderful fireworks ever! The castle is as much a show as the fireworks themselves so it is worth the wait. Disneyland is open to Midnight that night, although I think most of us will be dead by then from the early movie. But it will be so worth it!
9:25 p.m. Fireworks
10:05 p.m. Crawl back to hotel
Saturday, October 15
Bring your gifts for the Ariel gift exchange this morning please. $10.00 limit. Try to find something unusual.
10 a.m. Meet in front of the big Sunshine in California Adventure
10:30 a.m. Go to off the page and drool over the new Ariel picture. Then go have Ursula steal our voice.
11:30 a.m. Arielholics ride the Tower of Terror. Massive Photo Opportunity. No wimps!!!! After that we will head over to Soarin over California.
2:00 p.m. Meet up in front of Ariels Grotto for a 2:30 lunch. (yep I changed this to mid-afternoon) We will have the gift exchange and lotsa fun here! And most importantly....Ariel is back!!!
5:15 p.m. Watch the new parade at DCA. No Ariel but still good.
At this point I am turning everyone loose for the evening. Since many have not been here for the 50th there are many new things to see at Disneyland. For those who want to see the fireworks again, or Fantasmic or the parade, this will give you the opportunity to do it.
Sunday Ocotber 16th
12 noon Meet at the picnic area on the right side of Disneyland BEFORE you enter, for final awards, pictures, etc.
Margaret Kerry, who is the model for the original Tinkerbell, will be going with us to the El Capitan Theatre and will talk to us after the movie at the soda fountain.
Philo will be with us Friday and Saturday all day so we will all have an opportunity to talk to him about whatever we want!
Since we have several events taking our money this year (like the movie!) I backed off a bit on the registration for everyone. It will be $30.00 per person if you are attending both days and $20.00 if you can just attend Saturday. For your money you will get an
amazing goodie bag, and everyone will receive a copy of the pictures they take on Friday. I did not do T-shirts for Pacifica to keep the cost down in anticipation of the El Capitan event working out. And the main prizes this year are awesome!!!! I can't wait to give them out!
This Arielcon will be most amazing with the opportunity to see the movie at the El Capitan Theatre. Thanks to everyone who supported
and is coming!!!
And here is the usual disclaimer...this is no way affiliated with the Disney Company. You may attend Arielcon if you are 18 or over only please! If you are under 18 you are more than welcome to attend with a parent.
I think that is it.
