Nova Scotia DIS Meet for GKTW Aug 11, 2013

We are planning our 2nd GKTW Dis Meet for this August. Last year we raised over $5500 for Give Kids the World. If you listen to the podcast, the DIS has committed to raising a million dollars for this incredible charity.

This years event is similar to last year, an afternoon of food, music, prizes and Disney. Last year Teresa and Kathy from the DIS Unplugged joined us as well as DISers from Connecticut, PEI and New Brunswick. We sold out, so have rented a bigger venue for this year. We will start with an hour to view our penny auction and silent auction prizes, not to mention socialize. The second hour is a local group (my husband and his buddy), who will play Nova Scotia kitchen party style, including the song that they wrote last year called "Give Kids The World". GKTW has copies of the song and we have been told that it will likely appear in the next PSA/video. The third hour will be the awarding and drawing of prizes. As well, last year we had almost 50 door prizes that we randomly drew for. Our "KIDS KORNER" will be back once again with loads of freebies and activites. Admission is $10.00 if you are 10 or older (same as Disney).

Hopefully you can join us and believe it or not, we have sold a few tickets (12) already. The main event is Sunday, but there will be activities all weekend.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Pete has said this year the whole team is planning a field trip to our event.
Here is a link to the review that Teresa and Kathy gave after last years event

Not a new Dis-er either. Actually been on the site since it 1st started (but forgot my screen name). I tend to let this go "stale" when not actively getting ready for a trip since i find it too depressing otherwise. I actually never saw this thread!! We'll be in WDW Oct 25 - Nov 8th to celebrate our 30th
OOPS forgot to mention where we are, about 1.5 hours west of Toronto

Hi, there, fellow Guelphite!

I have two trips planned: one for February 2015, one for the fall of 2015 (October 28 to November 12, followed by a 7-day cruise on the Fantasy).

Too funny! I was from Guelph,ON but over the summer we moved to Kelowna, BC. I just couldn't hack another winter like last year

We have a FL trip planned for March 2015 (Spring Break is 2 weeks in BC), so a week on the Magic, then maybe Universal and a visit to my parents (who have a house in FL).

After that, I'm thinking we'll do a Wonder Cruise to Alaska (since we can drive to port!) and switch our trips to DL instead of DW

I'm in Ottawa.

We've two three family trips,POFQ January 2011 & POR January 2013. Heading to CBR from December 12-20.

Even though it's not always hot during our trips it's nice to get away from the extreme cold. The mild weather at WDW means it's never too hot while at the parks.

I'm in Snow Lake, Manitoba! Great white north. Trip is booked for January and if our winter is ANYTHING like last year, we'll be escaping -45 degrees for 'balmy' 50-70 norms. I'll take it! We'll be the ones with capris and tshirts next to the Floridians in parkas and mitts.

We Canadians totally deserve to have a warm vacation during our cold winters. We get -40 temps in Ottawa, this past winter was horrible.

On our vacation in January 2011 we saw a kid wearing a snowsuit at CM, my kids couldn't believe it! It was a little chilly that day, we had to wear hoodies, but not frigid. My kids still talk about seeing the girl in the snowsuit!
