Hi Folks I know you are all super anxious for details on DAP 2013.

UPDATE: 11/05/2013 IMPORTANT - There is a change in the event start time. It will now start at 10PM rather than 9:30PM as previously announced. Please understand that Disney Event Services has set this time and not us. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We still suggest you arrive at the front entrance to Disney Studios about 1 hour before the scheduled start time of the event. We are going to have one 'group walk' back to the event and if you arrive late you will not be able to get to the event. In addition we have some surprise guests who will meet you at the front of Disney Studios for the walk back. They should get there about 20 - 30 minutes before the event start time and I wouldn't want anyone to miss them. NOTE: Your credentials will still say 9:30PM start. We got them back from the printers after we knew the start time had changed. Your credentials will be accompanied with a letter that does list the new start time. Credentials will be mailed starting on Monday 11/11. Please understand that the mailing of the credentials is a large undertaking and may take us some time to complete but we anticipate everyone will receive their credentials well before the party date. UPDATE: 11/11/2013 Podcast recording information: Saturday, December 7, 2013 – Disney’s BoardWalk Convention Center – Promenade Ballroom – Starts at 2:00 PM The recording should run about 90 minutes. We ask that everyone arrive about 30 minutes early so we can get everyone seated and in place before the taping begins. This will not be broadcast live. You will need your credentials to be admitted to the recording. You DO NOT HAVE to attend the recording if you don't want to.
