Plus the DIS team will be doing a podcast recording.

Lunch will be catered by Caffe Gelato.

Sunday, November 3rd - 10AM-2PM - Klondike Kates
Til We Meet Again Lunch & Disney Swap Meet
Do you have some Disney items that you dont want any more? (Dont we all?)
Looking for that special Disney object that has to do with your favorite character? (Again, Dont we all?)
Come to the swap meet to see if you can find that one item you need to complete your collection.
Bring your gently used items to the swap meet!
Items donated to the swap meet will either be sold (proceeds going to GKTW) or if unsold, donated to a local charitable organization.
$20 per person.

Klondike Kates is allowing us to advertise this event to their restaurant customers so that we can share the Disney spirit with them and help out GKTW as well.

Hotel information:
We have two hotels located next to each other approximately 3 miles from both venues. Both hotels do accommodate persons with disabilities as well as smokers. The Embassy has a small lounge as well as an attached TGIF (inside entrance).

Embassy Suites Hotel we have a block of rooms at $129 + tax per night. You can book your rooms at this rate until October 3.
Use the group code DIS.

Homewood Suites no block of rooms, but if you book soon enough the standard room rates are comparable.

Both hotels are about 4 miles from the Newark Senior Center and Klondike Kates.

Free Time:
Delaware is home to Tax-Free (0%) shopping, as well as exciting night-life in the college town of Newark.
During the day, Main Street Newark has a wide variety of shops and eateries.
At night, the area is famous for its pubs & venues, hosting live events & bands.

Registration is now open:
Registration will close on Oct. *11*, 2013.

Web site of the items up for auction:

What We Still Need:
Donated items for the swap meet.
Volunteers for any or all 3 days. I really need some one to be in charge of a kids area.
Post here or pm me if you have anything to donate or to volunteer.

Keep an eye on this thread for updates.

DIS Meet Information

Just so you all know, the Friday Night Social will be the PERFECT place to catch up with all your DIS friends in the area!

And if you can't make it on Friday, the Sunday Swap Meet will be sure to please. I mean, what could be better than meeting old Disney friends, making new Disney Friends, and buying / swapping some old & gently loved items (Disney and Non-Disney!).

Register Soon - November may seem a long time away, but it is JUST Around The Corner!

Don't forget that Nov 3 daylight savings time ends so we get an extra hour of sleep.

Newark is a college town which means that "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" will be playing on Saturday night. Just saying.

Thank You, Pete!

I'd like to thank Pete & the DIS Unplugged Team for the shameless plug on today's podcast!

We'll be very glad to welcome Pete, Cathy, Teresa, Craig, & Dustin to their first stay in Delaware!

And to Shawn & his parents - Happy Homecoming!

Don't worry Shawn, we won't embarrass you by figuring out which Delaware Middle School you went to and hanging a banner-sized class photo with you circled on it above the door...

After hearing Pete's plea I looked at the itinerary - I am going to check with my daughter to see if she wants to go (we went to one in NYC), but as it is the weekend of Halloween and she is a 16 yo with a very active social schedule I am not sure she'll want to commit to something. Still, maybe we can come!
