Is it possible to just come up for the day? I have never been to any kind of Disney meet but can't afford the hotel stay for the weekend.

Absolutely! There is no requirement to attend all of the events or stay overnight...whatever is most convenient to you!

Thank you doconeill. That's awesome. Do you know if there is a shuttle/carpool happening from the Boston area?

I live just north of Boston and don't own a car.

If anyone has info please send me a private message and lets talk.

Just wanted to thank Bornteach and TSWJan78 for coming down to our NYC meet last night, and for their generous donation of La Nouba tickets for our raffle! It was wonderful to meet you both. Thanks again!

Angry Sheraton all booked!

I just went to the Sheraton Monarch Springfield website and it looks like they are all booked for the weekend :-(

I guess that will teach me to procrastinate! I will call them directly just to be sure, seems unusual for a small city to be completely booked, but the Big E is a huge draw for that weekend.

Thanks

I am in Agawam, one town over from W spfld. If you look just south to Enfield, CT you are right off the highway (91) there is a Red Roof Inn, a Motel 6 and a Hampton Inn. If you go North you can Look to Holyoke also off 91.

The Big E draws a LOT of vendors and visitors so I am not sure if yo can find anything in W Spfld at this point or not, but a Google seach for
*anytown* *state* hotels brings up all the options
good luck
hope to see you there

Thanks for the alternates - we'll take a look and see what we can find. I am just bummed that we didn't snag a room with everyone else at the Sheraton.

The good news is that we live in northern Worcester County so we can drive from home if need be (and save a few hundred that can be used for charity auctions!).

You may want to try thr Comfort Inn in Ludlow. It's close to the Friday & Sunday events and not too far from Springfield either.

So I spoke with the hotel and they still have rooms open for our group. Please use our dedicated link here.

You only have until Friday so please do it soon.

Thanks
