    Til We Meet Again Lunch & Disney Swap Meet
    Do you have some Disney items that you dont want any more? (Dont we all?)
    Looking for that special Disney object that has to do with your favorite character? (Again, Dont we all?)
    Come to the swap meet to see if you can find that one item you need to complete your collection.
    Bring your gently used items to the swap meet!
    Items donated to the swap meet will either be sold (proceeds going to GKTW) or if unsold, donated to a local charitable organization.
    $20 per person.

    Klondike Kates is allowing us to advertise this event to their restaurant customers so that we can share the Disney spirit with them and help out GKTW as well.

    Hotel information:
    We have two hotels located next to each other approximately 3 miles from both venues. Both hotels do accommodate persons with disabilities as well as smokers. The Embassy has a small lounge as well as an attached TGIF (inside entrance).

    Embassy Suites Hotel
    Homewood Suites no block of rooms, but if you book soon enough the standard room rates are comparable.

    Both hotels are about 4 miles from the Newark Senior Center and Klondike Kates.

    Free Time:
    Delaware is home to Tax-Free (0%) shopping, as well as exciting night-life in the college town of Newark.
    During the day, Main Street Newark has a wide variety of shops and eateries.
    At night, the area is famous for its pubs & venues, hosting live events & bands.

    Hi, there.

    Oh, this is a sin. I have no idea why, but no message ever came through to me. I finally got the dis app today (a year and 5 months later) on my iPad & here were 3 messages from you! :confused3 I was wondering why I never heard from you! Sigh. Oh well. I hope it went well. I don't have enough posts to respond to a message & I would LOVE to help this year! If u send me another personal message with your email, I will absolutely contact you!

    For anyone who may be flying in, check out Frontier Air .

    They offer flights from a variety of places, including non-stop from MCO.

    It may sound like a little hick airport (run by the Delaware River & Bay Authority, no less), but think of the time you will save NOT going through the long lines @ security. And yes, they fly Airbus jets, not Cessna prop planes. :duck:

    And, it is also fairly close to the event venue & hotel - under 15 miles.

    And yes, in case you were wondering, they are the ones with the animals on the tail fins.

    No, I don't get any kick-back from Frontier - I just thought i'd mention the option.

    This is only about an hour from me! Definitely do-able! And I love Klondike Kate's! I'll be subscribing to the thread so I can stay up to date on details. What sort of things do you need volunteers to do?

    Booked my room at Embassy Suites! Haven't bought tickets yet because I don't know how many people are coming with me, or whether or not I can get there early enough for Friday night's event... but at least my room is booked! :cool1:

    Happy that you are going to be able to make the event! There is a Amtrak station in Newark DE. The hotel is about a mile from the station. PM me if you need transportation from the station and/or any of the events.

    I just got into a play that has performances that weekend, but I think they're Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon. So I should still be able to come for most of the day on Saturday since I'm only about an hour and a half away from Newark. Is there any deadline for registration?
