    About the Power of 10:
    We are a group of Disney fans who want to help share our passion for Disney with those who need it most: children with life threatening illnesses and their families. When these children ask to visit Walt Disney World through organizations like the Make-A-Wish foundation, many times those organizations reach out to Give Kids The World to make that wish a reality. Our goal is simple. We’re looking to raise $1M to help this worthy organization in their mission to turn no child away. For more information about the Power of 10, please see:

    Original Post from 3/14
    Hi Everyone: I'm planning on coming down to Orlando to cover the re-opening of Star Tours on May 20th and the first Star Wars Weekend through Sunday, May 22nd. I've been considering organizing a "Power of 10" event/meet, but need to know who might be interested in attending.

    There are no plans as of yet, but I was considering doing something early Sunday morning, May 22nd in Hollywood Studios. I thought that way people will have taken a ride on the new Star Tours and gotten the "have-to-do" Star Wars Weekend activities out of the way, and wouldn't mind meeting up for a little while.

    April 10, Edited to add: Hi everyone, I've been working with Disney to see if we could pull this off. Here is what we are looking at, a breakfast at the Backlot Express (right next to Star Tours) on Sunday, May 22 from 7-9:30a. We would be getting into the park prior to opening, and be among the first in line for Star Tours when the park opens at 9am (you need theme park admission if you want to stay in the park after opening).

    Based on what Disney would charge us for the food and venue, in order to raise funds for GKTW, the cost would be $50/adult ages 10+, children ages 3-9 would be $25, and children 2 & under are free. Based on this information, would you still be interested in attending?

    I'm really looking for feedback before we commit to signing the contract with Disney.

    April 11, Edited to add: I heard back from Disney and updated the children's prices.

    April 13, Edited to add: breakfast menu items

    Breakfast Buffet would include:
    Orange and Apple Juice
    Assorted Muffins, Bagels, and Danish
    Plain Scrambled Eggs
    Breakfast Quesadillas with eggs, sausage, onions, peppers and cheddar cheese
    Smoked Bacon
    Turkey Sausage
    Tater tots
    Sliced fruit and Berry yogurt
    Coffee, Decaf Coffee, and Tea

    April 15, Edited to add: The contract has been signed. We're on!

    April 25, Edited to add: Disney has extended the park hours for Disney's Hollywood Studios to 8am to midnight that first Star Wars Weekend. We're currently working with them to see how this will impact our party.

    May 12, Edited to add: List of items for the silent auction (so far).

    Rats - our timing is *just* off! We leave the morning of the 20th to drive home after what I'm sure will be another wonderful family vacation at WDW. This sounds like a great idea, and we'd be in for sure if we were still going to be there!

    Any early thoughts on doing something over the weekend of the December event? DH (DEA on the boards) and I are planning to be there, with a no-kids reservation already in place on property...

    Count me in, Dave! It will probably be just me. I've put it on the calendar and set my schedule aside for this.

    Would love to- but I'll only be there until the 18th. Coming for Destination D, and hoping for a soft opening of Star Tours.

    Can we participate (donate) from afar? :idea:

    Hey, is this like the Haunted Mansion? Is there room for one more? If so, I'd like in!

    It would be just me, traveling solo, and staying at a TBD location. Apparently, I like to stay off the radar. :lmao: No, I'll let you know as soon as I have a clue.

I'm checking with Disney now to see if the charge for food would be less for children (ages 3-9; 2 & under). Based on this information, would you still be interested in attending?

    I'm really looking for feedback before we commit to signing the contract with Disney.

    Thanks for keeping me in the loop Dave. When you've finalized the details let me know in order to help promote it. Unfortunately my wife and I can't be there since we're leaving that morning but I hope to meet up with you and the rest of the Disney/Star Wars fans!

    I heard back from Disney. Children 2 & under are free, and ages 3-9 would be $25.
