FLOPAX 2011: MORE LIKE RAINPAX

edited October 2011 in Singularity Engine++
It's that time of year again!

The time of year when I (and @Javen) get some of you homps into Walt Disney World

FOR FREE

How sweet is that?

It's damn sweet, so don't make me regret it.

Here's the deal.

WHEN: October 8-9
WHERE: Disney World, Florida
WHAT: Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

That's right. Saturday, October 8 we will be going to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival and spending a shitton of money on the best food you'll eat all year.

YES, IT WILL COST A LOT OF MONEY

That's not necessarily true. It will cost as much money as you want to spend. There are 29 pavilions to explore, and a ton of delicious options. Please note that kiosks offer tastings that run $3-$8 per serving, and drinks depend entirely on how fancy the drink is. And luckily for you, you'll be with a few experienced F&Wers who've done this before, and we can recommend what to try (and what to avoid, not that there is much). PLEASE bring money. However if you are poor as shit (looking at you, @crwth), you are welcome to come and hang and keep your hands in your pockets cuz you ain't gettin' none of my delicious foods.

You do NOT have to be 21+ to attend, but it is WAY more fun.

Tentative plan:

October 8: Meet around 9am at Downtown Disney. We will then carpool to Epcot to avoid paying parking fees (cuz fuck that noise). If you have a curfew and have to leave early, you may need to get yourself there and possibly pay for parking (we'll see what we can work out). We'll spend the whole day having a ton of fun and probably leave after the fireworks at 9pm. IF 9AM IS TOO EARLY FOR MOST OF YOU, LET ME KNOW. I WILL CONSIDER MEETING LATER (but that is less food to enjoy!).
October 9: We'll go to another park, of the group's choice.

You obviously do not have to attend both days. I know some people will be coming into town for this, they are welcome to get a hotel and come both days. Locals can drive in, but I know not everyone can be there both days. Just let me know which day(s) you'd like to come so that I can plan accordingly.

LIST OF AWESOME ATTENDEES (subject to change):
@Sheri
@Javen
@Smart Hero
@Stareosarus
@DHS Odium + 1
@crwth
@Romanian My Escutcheon (oh god did I do that right)
@Jasconius
@A duck!
@Didgeridoo
@Just_Bri_Thanks
@PiptheFair (DUH)
@Sal
@rhylith
@Matey
@Retaba
@Rinder

TENTATIVELY AWESOME PEOPLE WHO ARE CONSIDERING ATTENDING:
@naporeon
@Raneados
@AgentofOrange

CHUMPS WHO GOT MY HOPES UP
@Stale
@Futore

OUT-OF-TOWNERS: You are so invited. Please come, I am sick of seeing the same people's faces every year.

This thread is subject to change without notice.

    Yeah, I know absolutely nothing about Disney World so this should be interesting.

    A little, well a whole lot, out of my budget but this is the type of thing that I will save up for as October 13th is my birthday and I can't think of a cooler way to celebrate getting older than a food & wine festival at Disney World with awesome folks.

    So basically, if you do this again next year I will try against everything to attend.

    Is this a hotel type affair? I don't think I will be driving back to Tampa after having 11(thousand) micro-glasses of wine.

    Is there a secret handshake to get cheap Disney lodging?

    I'm sure something can be arranged (not on Disney property, as that is stupid not-cheap. Although I suppose if we pooled enough people's money together. . .)

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, probably not much more than the $150 to $200 range? I have no idea what is reasonable for the area.

    EDIT - Eh up to $250.

    I'll need to find a hotel as well if I can make it. I'll probably fly in on friday and leave on the latest possible flight sunday.

    I wish I knew what my money would be looking like in October. It would be pretty fun to split one of these deluxe resorts. Some of them are not that bad for the off-season prices.

    Well we'd have three bedrooms, five beds, a sleeper sofa, AND a hot tub

    so really it's the best available production set

    *edit*

    Oh wait that was the contemporary villa I was looking at. Only 1600 per night.

    I can look into on-property resort stays

    If a couple people want to split a couple rooms, it'll help cut down the cost

    Plus you know I get like 50% off

    I want to make a joke about getting you 100% off but that would make two people mad at me.

    How far in advance do you have to book a resort, and is that weekend considered an "off-peak" time?

    ·
  • SheriSheri Resident Fluffer My Living RoomRegistered User regular
    Nothing is really off-peak anymore

    But it is definitely not holiday

    The booking system is just messed up.

    POLL: HOW MANY OF YOU HOMPS WOULD NEED A PLACE TO STAY

    Me and the lady will be there on Saturday. And just me again on Sunday. The lady's attendance on Saturday is subject to change.

    This is gonna be extra fun, and destroy last year's level of fun.

    I'm thinking I would want a place to stay so count me.

    I would like to make this a vacation thing for me personally. I haven't had a good vacation in years.

    It is the most likely of all the get togethers I've wanted to attend since PAX 08.

    There really isn't anything holding me in one place right now. The upside of not having a girlfriend anymore is that you don't have someone who you want to spend all of your time with, huh? LOL

    But seriously, the only reason I don't want to give a definite YES is because I am trying to get some good jobs towards a career.

    HOWEVER, with a little persuasion from myself and watching that list of attendees, I could certainly see myself rationalizing this Festival as a career move, since I want to do big things in the bar industry, right??
