Announcing a Midwest Meet Event

A few of us in the middle of the country have been tossing around a get together in Marceline, Missouri. For those not familiar with this small north central Missouri town, it is the boyhood home of Walt. This is where Walt said he fell in love with trains and small town Americana that provided the inspiration for Main St. USA at DL and MK. There is a Walt Disney Hometown Museum in the former train depot (pic below) and Walt's boyhood home is still there. The address is easily found on the internet, but the home is a private residence now.

Here are the details for EVERYONE that would like to join us:

July 23-25th, 2021
Long Branch State Park (about 30 minutes from Marceline)
Long Branch is a typical Missouri small state park with electric hook ups only (no water or sewer), but they do have some 50 amp sites (July in Missouri gets pretty hot, so dual A/C on the big rigs is a must).
Here is the CAMPGROUND link and the RESERVATIONS link.

  • Where is Marceline?
    • About 2 hours from Kansas City and 3 hours from St Louis

  • Long Branch State Park
549949 549950

The E* sites are 50 amp. There are 3 of us currently with reservations. We are in sites 73, 74, 75. If you would like to join us, I have never been to the SP, but all the sites look nice.

  • Walt Disney Hometown Museum (I drove out here a few years ago when my dad was in the hospital in central MO. It was December and the museum was closed for the season.)

The museum has guided tours for larger groups (hopefully Covid is better under control by late July) and they even offer private evening tours for groups (2-20) with the museum Creative Director for a
"chance to explore our 10,000 square feet of immersive gallery space at a slower pace, unencumbered by the noise of large museum crowds. Your group will have a unique opportunity to dig a little deeper into the Disney’s time in Marceline, and the inspiration Walt found in this beautiful little piece of northern Missouri."

Attendees so far:
  • Part-Time Paradise
  • Tigger92662
  • TeamUBR

Currently we'll be at GSP from the 9th to the 16th, but this may change. If it does I might look into this instead.
