Who's going to Magic Meets this year?


#1

Magic Meets is a Disney fan gathering in PA. It’s alot of fun with guest speakers, raffles, etc… Just wondering who else is going besides Me, DD, Dee and Miss Smig???

Also we usually make a weekend of it and go to Hershey Park as well! :happy:

Note: If your thinking about going or even if it’s a small possibility, go to the website and register. You have first dibs on tickets once they become available and believe me they SELL OUT in mere Days!!!
So if you are thinking about going Register EARLY!!!
They will email you when it’s time, and give you first priority on Tickets!!!
Don’t be sorry!!!

it’s alot of fun, I went 2 years in a row now, and Dee and Miss Smig went last year for the first time. I know karliebug has gone in the past and mrspooky went year before and won a 3 nt stay at a vacation home right outside WDW for her family!!!

I hope more MBers can make it this year, it will be alot of fun!
You dont even have to stay the weekend if you dont want to, but if you do (travelling a far distance) Fred Block who runs Magic Meets blocks space at the hotel where it’s being held at a reduced rate, it’s about 15mins outside of Hershey, 5mins from Harrisburg.

Keep in mind I am planning on staying at the Hampton Inn which is about 10 minutes from the event… still got my number… give me a call about it.


#4

I still have your phone #! :happy:

Yeah we have to meet up, but Iam def. staying in Hershey! :happy:


#5

Where is everyone else??? All our local MBers???
Ive heard many MBers say they want to go but never sign up???
or tickets sell out on them and they didnt get tickets???

What’s up people???


#6

I missed last year because I was at my mom’s in SC. I am definitely going this year. Do they have the details set yet? I haven’t gotten any emails.


#7

No details yet, just the date!!


#8

How far is this event from Hershey, PA?

Is this a full day event? If I went for a weekend, would I be able to go to the Meet one day, Hershey Park the other day?

How much are tickets?


#9

There’s a possibility that I might go this year. Stu and I loved Hershey Park and are considering taking the family for a 3 day trip. However, it will all depend on when (and if) we’ll be taking our next Disney trip.

Right now we’re thinking maybe the end of August/begining of Sept. (for possible free dining) or Christmas week. (We want to get one more '08 trip in before we plan Ireland for 6/09) If we’re going in the fall, a trip to Hershey (even just for the day for me) will be out. In order to afford Disney for 6, we’re pretty limited on extras the month before.


#10

The event is about 20mins from Hershey.
The event lasts about from 10am - 6pm

And that is exactly what I do Kim. But I arrive Fri nite at the hotel, go to bed wake up, go to event and then go to Hershey the next day, then drive home that nite. This year Iam going to try and get more Hershey Park time in! :happy:

They have a kids room for the kids if you want to bring them in there and feel comfortable leaving them in there for the 1/2 hr breakout sessions. The kids have a blast in there, and my DD is in and out of that room all day!.

Prices: 48.00 each adt, 22.00 each chd

Jen, they have a special disney scrapbooking session that they held last year for first time after the meet, I think you would love it!
Oh they also sell to Magic Meets attendees discounted group rates for Hershey Park for Sunday, the day after the meet and that is paid in advance. If You can swing it, the Magic Meets event tickets and Hershey park tickets is paid in advance, so the only thing you would need was hotel if you stay and food or souvenirs for Sunday only. There is a big meal at the event that day so the only thing you would be paying for OOP is breakfast before you go. It would be really cool if you and the other Jen could go! :happy:
