20 years of Dreams UnOfficial Thread logo.jpg

Hello everyone! We've done this for past events and thought it would be good to have one this time as well (based on some chatter I have already seen there is some interest in *un*official events as well!)​

1st Post:
This first post will be used for tracking "official *un*official" information - so details of unofficial meetups when set, along with the official events all tracked together (and @rteetz has agreed to make a spreadsheet again for having everything in one place

2nd Post:
Next, we will keep track of who is staying where (if you are willing to share) - this gives a good idea of who will be there, and for what dates - can help if you want to find someone at your resort to meet up with and potentially help with transportation back after the party - we can use this post for "carpool" information as well

3rd Post:
Lastly, this will be used for tracking ideas for events - this can be the idea for the event itself (Karaoke, "bucket crawl", breakfast, morning run, etc.) or for the type of event you are looking for (looking for bar friends, looking for non-bar friends, looking for family friendly events, etc.). We found the later to be really useful in the past, especially for solo travelers or those new to the meetups, etc.

Feel free to post any info or ideas right in this thread or send me a message if you prefer!

Let the planning begin!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

Facebook Group
This is the official *Un*Official Facebook Group for those that want to join there as well:

If attending the event you can bring the items with you but they are only accepting items delivered on August 7th and you still need to fill out the form



Overall Schedule

  • The below schedule will include Official and *Un*Official events. Official events will have the title in Blue, *Un*Official ones will have the title in Green.
  • For each *Un*Official event we will have at least one "owner" who will be the point of contact - particularly once everyone is onsite. If that event requires pre-payment (e.g., Hoop Dee Doo) that owner will organize payment (via Paypal or whatever)

Meet Up Ideas:

Welcome event - for adults, teens, and kids (At POP Century):
On Wednesday, August 7th, we will hold a welcome event so that people can introduce themselves and put some faces to names. This is a great opportunity to meet some people early on so you can see some friendly faces later in the week and at the party on Saturday. This will also be a chance for teens and kids to meet one other folk of the similar ages and hopefully make some new friends! I will lead the organization of this!

Note: several people have mentioned interest in a 2nd welcome event to be held at the Contemporary where the registration is. If you are, let me know (and what day/time you are thinking of) and we can try to organize something

    thanks for getting the unofficial thread started!!!!!!
    this will be my first official dis event, though i've been trying for years (dates never worked out for me).
    it will be just my daughter and me attending (we're leaving our husbands home)..
    it's a celebratory trip as well (celebrating the end of my 18 months of cancer treatments - my last will be in june 2019).
    My daughter wanted to celebrate by doing something just with me - whatever i want to do.
    And THIS is what i want to do!!!!!

    i've booked the event and the party for us.
    As for lodging, i haven't decided for sure yet.
    Either it will be pop century, SSR or BLT (assuming i can snag us BLT at the 7 month mark).

    We haven't yet decided on our exact dates, but we for sure will be there a few days before and after and are looking forward to meeting all of my dis friends in the flesh, so to speak.
    I did have the good fortune of meeting a few 'disers' and podcasters a number of years ago when i had to be in Orlando on my own for a conference. I'm looking forward to seeing them all again!!!

    Let the planning begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Phil and Ryan.

    It will be me, my wife, and our 23-year-old daughter. DW and I have been to many DIS events and our daughter has been to a few as well.

    We'll be staying at an offsite rental still to be determined. My PTO is booked for 8/5-8/18 but we will likely drive down so we'll actually be in town 8/6-8/17.

    We're looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends and making a lot of new ones.

    Thanks MaxRebo! I'd love to have a chatterati get-together.
    Other meet-up ideas: maybe @ AKL Victoria Falls (9pm-ish) before the party? If the party credentials allow us to enter the park earlier than 11pm, perhaps meet up at AK Nomad Lounge for pre-party socializing?

    They will not. This is not like a Disney hard ticket event where you can go in at 4pm for a 7pm party.
    Yeah, and I believe with the EPCOT one even if you were in the park you had to exit and check in with your credentials and go back in. Doesn’t mean people still couldn’t meet at Nomad Lounge or to watch Rovers of Light together and then go to the front together if they have park tickets, but they definitely clear out the park before letting our group in (At least did last time)

    Exactly. They corralled us all to the side of the entrance turnstiles until they cleared the park and then let us in. But yes, we could meet up in the park earlier.
    I do specifically remember seeing people still exiting the park when we entered EPCOT. That is because I remember hearing a lot of comments from those people wondering who we were lol. I do think the park was basically empty at that point though.

    I still remember that night like it was yesterday, and I can't wait to party in Pandora with so many friends! :)
