My husband and I want to participate! My son has autism and will not ride the roller coasters and does not meet the 54 inch height requirement.
What do you suggest? We have to bring him along. Buy him a regular admission ticket?

Which Park?

At some of the Parks (Knott's for example), riders get early access to the Park.

If it were me, I would just sign him up as a rider. He doesn't have to ride, but then he would be part of the group and get the t-shirt, lunch, etc. Plus cute kids raise way more money. :-)

Tell you what....for those of you on the fence, I will make it a little easier to raise the $75 minimum. I will PERSONALLY donate $25 to the next person that signs up and $5 each to the next 5 after that. Just sign up for team The DIS Coasterpalooza 3.0 and come back here and let me know that you signed up.

    My mom and I are signing up for Great America this weekend. Has Michael signed up yet?
    Michael is gonna take some convincing (and some motion sickness meds). I'm sure once he sees that other folks have signed up, he'll be guilted into joining. Peer pressure is an awesome thing when used safely.

    Hi Mark. I didn't see you signed up for the discoasterpalooza team at Valley Fair? If you did want to sign up for the team, I think Tom posted a link that will bring you directly to the team page .
