! La Brea Bakery in Downtown Disney is giving us exclusive access to their patio for our 4th Birthday Bash! I'm buying out the Express side of the patio, and we'll have it all to ourselves from 5pm-9pm on Sat Oct 19. This will give us a great location for our party putting us right in the middle of all the action in Downtown Disney (and steps away from the front gates). People who are blocked out can still attend! MouseWaiters will get discounted pricing on food and drinks on the Express and sit down dining side of the restaurant.
We need to hit a minimum food and drink amount, so if you can eat dinner at La Brea you'll help me reach the buyout amount.
Just to confirm, there will NO admission for the Birthday Bash, it's FREE to attend, and everyone will get access to the Raffle and the Cake Contest. To help us reach the food and drink minimum, there will be a special Raffle item--a $100 Disney Gift card. For each $10 you spend at La Brea, you will get one ticket for a chance to win the $100 gift card--this gift card will be reserved only for those who purchase food and drinks at La Brea. REMEMBER TO RSVP if you are coming!
We encourage you to plan your own meet ups on Friday and Sunday since there will be a lot of people in town for the festivities. (CHECK THE EVENTS SECTION)
