Are planning on attending and would love to make hotel reservations sooner rather than later. Any more progress?

As it is never too early to start planning, we have received the group rate information for Hershey Park tickets. If you would like to sign up for the group rate, please PM me or email Amy and I (wimpy@psualum.com). We will need to know the count by April 10th to get the best rate. We will need a total of 20 or more for these rates.

Regular (ages 9-54) - $32.00
Junior/Senior (ages 3-8 & 55-69) - $27.75
Senior Plus (ages 70+) - $21.50

We're interested!

Perhaps another event option: the automobile museum, just up the road from HersheyPark and the Giant Center.

I completely forgot about the Automobile Museum...I will add that to the list.

I know we don't have details yet but can anyone from the area give me some suggestions on good hotels in the area? I will be traveling from Pittsburgh.

There are a couple that have been tossed out for getting a block of rooms set, but nothing has been set in stone. I promise after our meeting on the 21st of Feb, we will have hotel information then. We were looking at hotels that are closer to the airport/church, BUT there are some recent developments that might lend us to going closer to Hershey than Harrisburg. Please don't quote me on that last statement, but we are working very hard on getting something set up within the next 3 weeks!!!

Sounds great. I am in the planning mood as I just finished up planning my trip to WDW in July.

Subscribing to this as well. Didn't realize it had gotten pinned as a different thread.

Loving the ideas here and thoughts of this event so close to home! Were only an hour away in the Lehigh Valley area!

Sounds like it will be a great weekend- can't wait for more information. Might make a girls weekend of it or it might just be me. Either way- I want in!
