DISApalooza 2013 - Official Information Thread

Hi Folks

I know you are all super anxious for details on DAP 2013. We have still not worked out the details with Disney yet, which is why nothing has been announced, but I want to share some information with you now so some of you can make plans (and I also understand Pete has 'leaked' some info to the folks on the current Backstage Magic ABD).

Below is what I can tell you now. As details are finalized I will release more. Please do not contact me asking for more details or to be placed on a waitlist as none exists.

Thanks
John

UPDATE: 11/02/2013

We have transportation after the event!!!

For those of you who have indicated you are interested in transporation after the event, an email has been sent to you with instructions on how to sign-up for transportation.

If you are interested in transportation and have not received the email please write to us at DAP@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com and in the subject line put "Need information on transfers".

There will be a $10 per person cost for transfers. Transfers are only offered one-way after the event back to your WDW hotel.

The sign-up page for transfers is here https://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.co...sportation.cfm - however you will need an email from us with certain information to complete the sign-up process.

UPDATE: 11/05/2013

IMPORTANT - There is a change in the event start time. It will now start at 10PM rather than 9:30PM as previously announced. Please understand that Disney Event Services has set this time and not us. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

We still suggest you arrive at the front entrance to Disney Studios about 1 hour before the scheduled start time of the event. We are going to have one 'group walk' back to the event and if you arrive late you will not be able to get to the event.

In addition we have some surprise guests who will meet you at the front of Disney Studios for the walk back. They should get there about 20 - 30 minutes before the event start time and I wouldn't want anyone to miss them.

NOTE: Your credentials will still say 9:30PM start. We got them back from the printers after we knew the start time had changed. Your credentials will be accompanied with a letter that does list the new start time. Credentials will be mailed starting on Monday 11/11. Please understand that the mailing of the credentials is a large undertaking and may take us some time to complete but we anticipate everyone will receive their credentials well before the party date.

UPDATE: 11/11/2013

Podcast recording information:

Saturday, December 7, 2013 – Disney’s BoardWalk Convention Center – Promenade Ballroom – Starts at 2:00 PM

The recording should run about 90 minutes.

We ask that everyone arrive about 30 minutes early so we can get everyone seated and in place before the taping begins.

This will not be broadcast live.

You will need your credentials to be admitted to the recording. You DO NOT HAVE to attend the recording if you don't want to.

Count us in!

Looks like it will be an all girls weekend with my sisters. We loved DAP 2 and hoped for news of the third.

Of course I guessed the wrong week. I need to see what I can do with my ADRs. (and here I thought I was so clever nabbing Be Our Guest ressies! ) Let's hope for a cancelation sometime.

That weekend is actually better. That could be a possible FD weekend. Pins that are out now include dates from 12-4. Looks like I need to call Disney asap.

Thanks for the info, John! So excited!!!

Phooey. I'll be on the Dream at the time. (How often does anyone say "Phooey" about being on the Dream?) Bummer timing...

Ah, bad timing since that would be our third trip within a five month span. Maybe if Patrick wins the lottery.

Great! I'm already booked for that week (Wednesday through Monday)! This will be only my second DISapalooza, with the first one being the Harry Potter event.

See you in December then!
