Yes. We have a rate of $149/night at the Radisson Plymouth Harbor. You need our group code which you receive in your registration confirmation email. Unfortunately we have a limited number of rooms so we can only give it out to registered guests.

Hi all! Hoping to make it out to at least part of the weekend's events. I will be a first -timer and am excited about the prospect of meeting some fellow DISers! I do have a question about the child-friendliness of these events. We have twins who in October will be 12 months old... We were hoping to at least make it to Sunday brunch/podcast recording but also were interested in Friday night's dinner... What's the generally accepted rule about having small children at these events? Thanks in advance!

Little ones are more than welcome. We are thinking about offering some sort of Babysitting in one of the hotel rooms if that is something you are interested it. Either way, There will be things for them to do and other little ones there!! Please join us!!

We weren't planning on going to this one, but after the fantastic time we had in Hershey, we really want to try to swing it!

I know it says we can only pick one event to go to on Saturday, but we are very torn between the Ren Faire and the historic walking tour. As long as we are back at the hotel by 1:30 for the pm walking tour, would we be able to do that as well as long as we pay for both events?

Of course, but I would do it the other way around. Do the walking tour in the morning then head over to the Renaissance fair. You can have lunch there and enjoy the afternoon. Bowling doesn't start till 730 so you should have plenty of time. Just my opinion.

I REALLY want to go for the full event, but I would be coming solo and it would be my first Dis Meet - those combined factors make it a teensy bit intimidating... Can anyone who has gone solo tell me what his/her experience has been like? Is anyone going to this one solo? I'm no wallflower, and I am sure everyone will be super friendly, but I just want to get a better idea of how it will be to attend the full weekend alone.
