Thanks! That's just what I needed to know. We'll definitely be bringing things for the swap meet. In addition to non-Disney items, I know I have a bunch of Disney stuff that came in the grab bags sold at DTD. Untagged is the way to go for me. Haven't a clue what people are willing to pay.

You can either tag everything with a selling price, or "best offer", and then when buyers come upstairs, they can pick it up, purchase it at the tagged price, or make a reasonable offer on an untagged item, and all of the cash / credit card purchases go to GKTW.

So, yes, it is an alternative to Goodwill, but with the added twist that for the Disney stuff, you might have a better audience.

All untagged items left over at the end will be donated to Salvation Army.
If the original owner wants their tagged items back, they can retrieve them, otherwise those too will go to Salvation Army.

If you have items of value that you would rather get a tax write-off, you would be better off holding it for the next local DIS meet. We have already filled our three auction types.

Is there anyone *thinking* of going that would possibly like to split the hotel room? Female only? I don't snore LOL. I'd like to go, but after not working all summer and 2 long vacations to WDW, I am trying to not go crazy with $$$. You can PM me if you think you'd be interested. I'm coming from NJ, but am nothing like the people from the Jersey Shore. LOL

Only 3 weeks to go!!

I have a few questions...

1) How many people are going to Iron Hill Saturday night? Do we have transportation James? I know there was a post that you would be able to arrange something. Just curious about whether that is happening or not.

2) Is anyone at all going to Rocky Horror? That was mentioned once- again, just curious.

3) Do we have to bring paper tickets with us? Or will you have a master list at check-in for each event?

That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure I will think of something else in the next 21 days!

Hi Linda,

I have 20 people on the list right now, with 2 more maybes, and without any of the podcast crew aside from Shaun. When we're closer in, I will call Iron Hill and let them know.

As far as transportation, I believe the plan is to arrange taxis to and from Embassy Suites. James should have more info on that, but I think the taxi company said they could take 5 in a cab at 2 bucks a person each way.

I don't know about Rocky Horror. I love it, but might not be up for it after the long day. Personally, I'm going to decide that one on the fly.

Hi Linda,
I would love to go to Rocky Horror but will have to see how I feel that night.
You do not have to bring your paper ticket. I will have a master list for check-in. If you check-in on Friday you do not have to check-in again. Once registration closes on Oct 16 I will be sending out an email with more information. Can't wait to see everyone.

Hi everyone. I just talked my husband into going and purchased tickets. See everyone at the Saturday event.

Oh and I signed up for the meet up at Iron Hill as well. Should be fun to join everyone.

See you all in a few weeks.
