Exclamation DIS mentioned by Senators Office!

Here's the reply I got today from Senator Clintons NY office: Mentions the DIS!!!

"Unfortunately NASA has already consumed its annual allocation of complimentary tickets for the Kennedy Space Center this year, so tickets through this office will not be a possibility. I apologize for the inconvenience. Every year NASA offers 500 complimentary passes which congressional offices are able to request for their constituents. This is the first year tickets have ever run out due to a Disney blog which widely publicized this information. Effective January 1, 2009 NASA will offer 4 passes per request rather than the usual 10 they have offered in the past. Regular priced tickets may be purchased online at http://kennedyspacecenter.stores.yahoo.net/ "

THis is what I got back from Congressman Joe Barton's office here in Arlington, Texas

We have received your letter concerning tickets to the Kennedy Center in Florida. Unfortunately, our office was unable to find any information related to free tickets for this venue. The only possible tickets we could attempt to acquire would be tickets to watch a space shuttle launch in Florida.
I would be happy to put in the necessary requests with the NASA government relations desk, though I cannot guarantee these tickets.
I hope this information was helpful. Please let me know if I can find any more information for you or begin the process of applying for these tickets.
Thank you, and have a beautiful week.

I'm going to try again next year when I need the tickets and maybe some more tickets will be available.

Sounds like you need to point them to one of these other reps offices (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...71&postcount=3) to find out the info.

Anyway - below is the response I got (sadly) from Hilary Clintons office...

I started this one to try to consolidate the confirmed congressional offices that had given out tickets since my Rep had never heard of it right before the story came out in the FL paper. Bad timing on my part since I doubt it really helped anyone after that article!!

Read my story in post one - http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...50&postcount=1
