Hi everyone:

Okay, a few important notes about our convention. Response to the event has been VERY strong. We currently have over 100 people scheduled to attend (and we have not yet opened this up to event only registration). I met with our Convention coordinator yesterday to do a site inspection of the Yacht Club to see the various areas where we'll hold certain functions. The DIS Character breakfast is going to be held in the Grand Ballroom (stunning!!), and our continental breakfast will be held (tentatively) at the Yachtsman Steak House. The welcome reception will be held (tentatively) at Atlantic Dance.

Now, I'm not trying to scare anyone into booking (really, I'm not), but after talking with Carole yesterday, I decided that for this event, I'm going to cap attendance at 300 people. My feeling is that we'll meet that number fairly quickly. I plan to open up registration for 'event only' right after we go to contract on the hotel rooms (which will be around Feb 12), SO...if you are planning to go and utilize a hotel room, I must BEG you to put your request in now. Once we've gone to contract I can not guarantee that I'll be able to get more rooms. Right now, we have rooms held at all resorts, but when we sign the contract, we only have the rooms that have deposits paid.

Now I know some of you had special requests/situations and I've created a new form for those. If the standard form that we have
--- does not meet your party description, then go to
--- Enter in your info, and someone will get back to you with a price, at which time you can let us know if you want to hold it.

Again, I must emphasize that I think we will max out on our cap, so it's critical that you get your request in NOW, and get your deposit paid. For those that have put in requests, but not have not paid your deposit, please don't wait until the last minute. Once we go to contract, I have no guarantees that I'll get additional rooms. Rooms are held on a first paid/first served basis, so please..don't procratinate (that's usually my job!).

If you have any questions, please direct them to dis2001@wdwinfo.com

Also, I will be setting up a special discussion board just for this event in the next few days.

Thanks,
Pete

Well, I'm pleased to say that the response to our 1st DIS Convention has been amazing. As of right now (6:30pm EDT 2/12) we have more than 260 people registered to attend!! That's the good news. The bad news is that when it hits 300, I'm shutting it off in order to allow everyone who has registered to pay thier deposits. Any cancellations at that point will be made available for anyone who wants to attend. So, if you are planning to attend, I would STRONGLY suggest not waiting too long to register, since we will not accept any reservations (event only or otherwise) once we have 300 people confirmed. So, please visit the Convention page at
http://www.wdwinfo.com/discon.htm and register (either for hotel or event only) to ensure your spot. It's shaping up to be one heck of a party!!!

Thanks,
Pete
