I like this idea as well

A group breakfast at Whispering Canyon Cafe would be a lot of fun as an alternative to dinner.... plus by ordering the Skillet - we'd get all-you-can-eat bacon

1500/15=$100 not bad for a once in a lifetime experience.
I'd go for it. Now, when it comes to butler service and all those other add ons, I think we can pirate some of our own refreshments on board. Like on the cruise ships, smuggle your choice of alcohol on board, pour it in your class, add whatever fruit juice you want, and you are drinkin. Or, a pint of Crown Royal is easy to conceal and drink neat.

I could, of course, do a special Disdads t-shirt that could be included with the group package booking.

Wow, take a week off from the DIS and look what I miss!

I think most likely I'd have to sit the convention out. It sounds like a blast, and I wish I could do it. We're a single-income family and typically save up for one big vacation a year, and right now we have plans for a fairly expensive trip both this summer and next. So it would be hard to justify spending several hundred dollars on myself in the midst of that. I'll never say never, but for now I'll let you guys make the plans.

Oh, and good luck. We're all counting on you.
