Hello!

I am new to the DIS forum, but I am a very big Disney Fan. I live in the Harrisburg area, and I would only be about 20 minutes away. Please let me know if you are still looking for volunteers to help with this event. I apologize if I am not replying correctly!

Thank You!

Can't wait to hear the plans after you meet on the 21st.
I am trying hard to pencil in the dates for a mini-vacation.

We are still looking for hotels, but we have set up a facebook group for the event:

https://www.facebook.com/DISHHPAGKTW

We have some more great ideas coming in and we are also working on a t-shirt idea for the event.

Sounds like a great meet up. Just getting active here after some years, but I'm over in Allentown and this sounds like a blast!

Live 90 minutes away, so we will be there.

I'm a former CM, so I'll see if I can dig up something interesting for the Chinese auction.

The main event will be at 1:00 pm on Saturday. We may have evening socials, but the meet at 1 is the only set event at this time.

The group tickets are regular tickets and can be used any day (not just Saturday). All tickets also include a preview option for the night before. So even if you are not going to HP this weekend and still want tickets for the 2014 season, you can buy them with the group and use them when you want.

Hi there! I'm new. I'm really excited about a Dis meet happening so close to home. I've been listening to the podcast for several months and I love it!

What expenses should I plan for to attend this event? Is there an admission fee for the actual event or is the money for GKTW raised through the silent auction and chinese auction? I'm planning to attend regardless, but I want to make sure I understand the details so I can plan accordingly. Are this thread and the facebook pages that I just "liked" the best places to find updates or is there a place that give info for Dis meet first-timers? DH and I may be interested in purchasing the Hershey Park tickets with the group. If we are, how do we accomplish ordering tickets?

Thanks for your help!

This and the FB page are the best places for updates.

As far as cost goes, we are looking at an admission fee (to cover the cost of lunch and raise money) as well as the silent/Chinese auction.

If you are interested in group tickets, PM/email me how many and type (adult/youth/senior) and I'll add your name to the list.

The other expense may be if you decide to stay overnight. We are almost set to put the hotel information out there, but we have to get everything signed, sealed and delivered first before we put the links out there. We have one hotel secure, we are waiting for another one.

As Wimpy mentioned, both here and Facebook will be the best places to get updates. I am hoping to have the event page set up for registration after our next meeting the end of March.
