Disney Dish Live at Walt Disney World FAQ’s
1. When is the Live Event taking Place?
The Disney Dish Live Event will begin on Friday, November 10, 2017 and end on Monday, November 13, 2017.
2. Which resort should I stay at?
The host resort is Coronado Springs. We have group rates of $176 a night plus tax. Some of our group activities will take place at Coronado, so that is where we recommend staying. If you have special requests for other accommodations, let us know and we will see what we can do!
3. What if I want to stay longer than three nights?
Also based on availability, we can extend your stay up to 3 nights in either direction at the group rate.
4. Do I need a park ticket?
Some group activities will take place inside the parks, so we do recommend park tickets. There will be group rate tickets available to anyone who books a hotel room. You’ll know in advance of the 60 day Fastpass window which days will have park events, so you will be able to purchase a ticket with the appropriate number of days in plenty of advance time.
5. Can I add the dining plan to my reservation?
Because of the savings involved with the room and tickets, the groups department will not allow us to add the dining plan reservations.
6. What is the cancellation and payment policy?
The first night’s deposit is due upon booking a hotel room. The final payment will be due on September 1st, at which point the rooms are non-refundable. The tickets are non-refundable when purchased.
7. Are there any other costs?
There will be some optional upcharge events. The costs will vary and you can certainly choose which you would like to attend!
8. Can I bring my children?
Sure! While there are no child-specific events, children are welcome at any events you think they would enjoy.
9. What kinds of activities will there be?
Activity details are being worked out now, but among other things, you can expect many exclusive events like a live recording of a podcast with Len and Jim, and a dessert party at Epcot!
10. Do I have to attend all of the activities?
Absolutely not! While we think all activities will be so exciting you won’t be able to resist them, you can pick and choose what you would like to do.
11. Will I get to meet Len and Jim?
Absolutely! Len Testa and Jim Hill are ultimately the reason we are going, and they will be around at most, if not all, events!
12. When is the deadline to book?
We will need a firm count of attendees by October 1st, but it is possible rooms and some events will fill up before then, so we recommend booking as soon as possible!
13. Where can I find other people going and more information?
We have a Facebook group
started for this event! If you are on Facebook, feel free to join in the conversations there. We will also post any new information on our website and send it out to anyone who registered for information by email. You can also follow DisneyDishPod and StorybookD on Twitter for updates!
