Alot of it depends on your physical condition - I hope that doesn't sound rude. I think it's about a mile - Robo, from the boards, has an aerial view which would show you the actual distance. I can be over there in about 15 minutes. If you prefer a more leisurely walk, I would think 25-30 minutes would be better and it is a very pretty walk. BUT, if it's freezing cold [which it was at this time last year] you might just consider grabbing a taxi. It wouldn't cost that much.

Hope this helps.

I just found Robo's aerial view for you. Click on the link below, post# 8. And looking at this aerial view, I think it would take me longer than 15 minutes to do it. I forgot it's quite a ways on the other side of the Boardwalk area.

It takes me 15-20 minutes to walk from the Studios to the Swan, so it would probably take just a bit longer to walk to the YC.

So, John, does this mean those taking your transportation miss the last half hour of the event?

I seem to remember John correcting himself on a podcast once that the hours for the Event were really 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. and that if anyone had a problem with that [not sounding as hateful as that looks in writing] that he would more than gladly refund their money. I also see that the actual registration form shows 9:30 - 11:30 p.m.

Hello everybody,

We (Emiel and I) think that there are a lot of people that would like to give Pete & Walter a gift for their wedding.
We believe that they have almost everything that their hearts desire and that we can make them most happy with a gift that cares.
So we came up with the idea to set up an firstgiving.com page to raise money for Give Kids The World in honor of their wedding.

Here is the link to the page where you can donate your money:
http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraise...10/weddinggift

We also have planned to raise money at DIS a Palooza.
We will be there to collect money and at the end of the night we will reveal the amount of money raised as a wedding gift for Pete & Walter.

Please feel free to donate but please don't feel obligated to do so!!

Emiel & Yvette

Yes, he said city noise laws prohibited the party from going past midnight.

I thought I would post a friendly reminder that now is the time to buy any HP hats, scarves, or costumes for the party. Halloween merchandise everywhere is starting to get discounted. The best buys are found in after Halloween clearances.

I'm sure some of the kids, as well as the adults want to get into the spirit!

Ah, thanks! That makes more sense, then.

The rides will be running 9:30PM - 11:30PM. The shops and Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be open to us until midnight so people can shop, mingle and enjoy the atmosphere of this almost-empty part of the park as they meander out.

Buses will depart at midnight from a backstage location that is literally right behind the WWHOP area itself.

The bus company has asked that everyone riding the buses be loaded and ready to depart by midnight.

So, taking into account time to get to the buses and loading time I guess technically those folks will miss the last 10 - 15 minutes the WWHOP area will be available to us.

I apologize if anyone feels this is unfair but we have to deal with factors that are out of our control. If you feel this is unacceptable and you no longer wish to use the transportation please write to DAP@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com

I just want to say THANK YOU to you, John, for organizing this amazing event and for helping each of us with our individual issues. (For me it was adding on my 7 year old son a few weeks ago.) It must require an incredible amount of patience to deal with all of us! I'm sure lots of us keep pestering you with questions and problems but I'm very, very grateful for this cool opportunity!

Agreed.

My Mom loves the fact that the shuttle will have a fantastic drop off/pick up location.

Attending our first DIS event!

Everything came together for a Florida getaway in December, so I took the plunge and signed up for DISapalooza! Woo hoo! Still working on accommodations - POP is a possibility, but we may also move around a bit (perhaps a couple of days at Cocoa Beach) if we decide to rent a car, and DH's all-time dream is to stay at WL so I may surprise him with a night or two there

I'm a more of a lurker than a poster, but a faithful listener to the Podcast! Can't wait to be at my first DIS event - and hoping to get to the podcast taping as well! Looking forward to meeting the Podcast Team and lots of the new friends!
