Addicts West Coast (US) Meet Up Details!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So a few Addicts Live episodes back we teased the idea of a West Coast Addicts Meet Up.  We met a bunch of our East Coast Readers back in March 2015 and thought it was time to get out and see what the West Coast has to offer. (Yes, Middle America I know..we’re coming for you next 😉 )

West Coast was an ideal location for us because both Patric and Wook live out there, so it really only involved me getting my butt on a plane and taking that 6hr trek…

So now we’re ready to announce the dates and details of the West Coast Meet Up, so let’s get to it..

So we’ll be in California, and what’s located in California?  Universal Studios Hollywood of course…which contains Springfield USA!  So we thought what better place for a bunch of TSTO Addicts to hang out than Universal Studios, Springfield!

So come out to Universal Studios Hollywood and hang out with Patric, Wookiee, myself and of course the Tiny Addict!  Plus the first round at Moe’s is on me!

Here are the details:

Date: August 19th, 2017 (Saturday)
Time: I believe the park opens at 9am, so we’ll likely meetup around 11am or so.
Location: Moe’s Tavern, Universal Studios Hollywood (Park Admission will be required and not provided by the Addicts)
More Details: So this one is going to be pretty low key compared to our last Meet Up.  Just come hang out with us and our families at Universal Studios Hollywood.  We’ll check out Springfield USA, explore the park and more.  Of course you’re welcome to do your own thing and just come hang out with us at Moe’s if you’d like.

We’ll post a firm meetup time as it gets closer.

And if you’re trying to figure out just what’s in Springfield USA at Universal Studios, check out Wookiees post on it here.

Accommodations: If you aren’t in the immediate area, but really want to come and need help with hotels in the area… check out my sister, a Disney and Universal Studios Travel Agent, who can help you make hotel accommodations, and anything else you may need.  (and her services are completely free!)

You can email her here: and check out her Facebook Page here.

And yes, she’s also a Disney Travel agent.  So if you’re looking for anything Disney World, Disneyland contact her as well!  She’s phenomenal…and not just because she’s my sister.  She planned our recent trip to Disney World a few weeks ago and did a fantastic job.  So she’s planning our trip out there for the Meetup!  So I highly recommend if you need help! (and again, her services are completely free!)

RSVP Here This is just so we can get a rough idea of who’s coming

And that’s it my friends!  We’re really excited about this meet up!  Can’t wait to hang out with each other and meet our West Coast Readers!

Will you be joining us at the Addicts Meet up?  Have you been to Springfield USA? (either Hollywood or Florida) Have you been wanting to go?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you! And we really hope to meet a bunch of you in Hollywood!

  1. As soon as there’s a Europe meet, I am so there 😉

  2. I am excited for this. I finally get to meet Alissa, tiny addict and Patric. I am one happy mama. This is going to be a great day. FYI, for anyone visiting, it will be hot that day so plan accordingly.

  3. Hmmm. While I read the site regularly, I can’t say I’ve actively participated to any great extent. That being said, I do live pretty much right at the foot of the hill to Universal, so this may be hard to pass up!

  4. Thanks, I agree I hate LAX airport, close tie with San Francisco. I try to avoid both. I flagged post with your sis info, will keep it on file.

  5. Dang it, this is in my hometown, but I won’t be available that date. Bummer! I hope you all have a blast!

  6. I’d love to meet up but it’s a long ol’ way from england sadly

    I hope you all have a great day.

  7. I wish it was a month earlier. I’m flying back from san diego to MI on 7/28. I would love to meet our addicts hosts, buy them all a round & express my gratitude for all they do

  8. I have a season pass!!! I’ll be there!!

  9. I’ll have to wait for the East Coast Meet Up

  10. WanderingCaveman

    I might actually have that weekend free.

  11. I know this has nothing to do with the subject, but can ANYONE tell me why automatic bridge- railings are NOT coming up when you place a road between 2 “rivers”? I’m trying to fit in that dam and I removed my road/railings/water to fit it in the way I like it, and when I replaced them, poof! No bridge railings. Then, I went to some random open grass and tested it out and still nothing. Any answer would be great. Thanks!!

    • WanderingCaveman

      The road has to be on a water tile to change into a bridge, it won’t work if it’s on grass. Try putting water tiles on the spot where the road will go, then put the road tiles directly on top of the water tile.

  12. What about Bunny? Is she no longer an addict? Sorry I haven’t been around in a while.

  13. Darn! I’m sad I missed the East coast meet up. I hope you do one again soon(ish).

    I hope you all have a fantastic time & take loads of pics 🙂

  14. Just wondering if anybody would be interested in doing the VIP Experience that day. It’s a bit pricey but well worth it. The last one begins at 12:45. It includes VIP parking, lunch, front of line access and private backstage tour. We did it 10 years ago and had a blast.

  15. D’oh! We were just there in February 😕 Would still really enjoy meeting some fellow addicts as I know no one personally who taps. Only about a 7 hr drive so not too bad and may be doable. Maybe if I can incorporate a Disney trip into it, I can convince the fam…….ok just my wife 😂😂😂 I know she’ll call me crazy

  16. Cool man I’m actually gonna be in California than. I might stop by.

  17. Morning Everbody(still morning in CA). I’m going to do my best to be there, I want to see those lil curls in person (Riley). Working with my BF as she plays & this meet up is in middle of our birthdays so would be awesome present to each other, not to mention we have been to many parks but not Universal together.

  18. And just think U.K. readers…………

    Our ‘west coast’ would be Butlins at Minehead


  19. It’s a bad idea, people will only be disappointed when they meet people for real…….I’m sure the internet makes us seem cooler than we probably are in real life

    So I’ll keep my distance and stay cool


    • Hey man, a friend of mine got married to a girl he met on the Internet!

      Oh, what a horrible, horrible mistake it turned out to be…

    • Hi Lee, you are 1 of pep I plan to look up if I make it back over the pond, a little further since I’m on west coast now. Lol

  20. Prayer to the lottery so I can join the addicts…
    I know I’m a sinner but make me a winner! 😉

    If that works and I win enough to join you from the UK I will be there to buy a round of flamin moes for everyone! !! ☆

    And give Wookster the Best. Hug. Ever. 😀

    • LOL! When the post went live, I searched flights, but couldn’t find a ticket under $500 a few hours ago. I then went out shopping and at the exit bought a LottoMax and Lottario ticket too, with the intention of hopefully winning enough to fly to LAX, LOL! Great minds think alike.

    • Hehe same ^^

  21. Along with the new event characters there seems to be a new character in the “4th of July” category. In the “More Kids” category there is a Mozart Bart character in the group.

  22. Awesome! Let me see what I can find in terms if flights and if I can get a couple day soon off work!

    Any other Canucks thinking of going?
