As soon as I get the days off work approved I'm in. Sunday shouldn't be a problem but I have to hope there's no busy events scheduled that Saturday as Knott's is the day I really want to do.

Sounds awesome! What do people typically do for lodging? Both Knotts and SFMM have hotels within walking distance, but the parks are almost 1 hour, 15 minutes apart (without traffic). Does it make sense to just stay by Knotts and drive over to SFMM for the day? Would the Sunday morning drive to SFMM from Knotts be pretty hectic?

^It's really what you like better. A lot of people base camp at the Knott's hotel (especially if they'll also be visiting Disney on the trip). But if you don't like to get up early, switching hotels is also possible.

^^ When I attended in 2016, I stayed at the Knott's Hotel, and I connected up beforehand with a member
here in TPR (hi Bryan!). Then he and I drove up in his car to MM for that day (which was the Sat. that time).
Knott's of course was an easy five minute walk to the front gates. And that was that! I had put a
reserve on a rental car "just in case," but didn't need it and cancelled it the week before I left. Easy!

So, that's what some of you here could be doing, connecting up for rides to MM, or Knott's from your hotels, etc.

Just a suggestion. Have a great weekend everybody! :airtime: :airtimer:

That was the operative phrase for me. Knott's also provided a nice little shuttle to Disney, which was great to use.
And there is an easy way by bus, to get to Disney even earlier, if you have Early Entry, like I did on the Tuesday.
Universal could be included too, but that would have definitely meant renting a car. So I didn't include Universal. :smile:

I just purchased my tickets for WCB 2018. My flight is already booked. I love this event, so I'm very excited that it's back again.
I started going to West Coast Bash in 2009. The only time I didn't go was 2016. Since there was no West Coast Bash in 2017, I'll need to have three times as much fun this year. With TPR, that should be pretty easy.

If you were doing other stuff in Orange County on Monday like Disney I would stay at the Knott's hotel. You would have to wake up earlier on Sunday Morning to get to SFMM but traffic should be smooth - Sunday mornings is one of the best times to drive in LA as traffic is light.
