We have a friend who is a chaperon to a youth event in WDW and about 60 folks will be staying at ASSports. They want to host a gathering at this hotel, and we’re trying to help with the planning. We’ve stayed at ASSports but it was more than 15yrs ago so we don’t know what’s available as an option here. We don’t want to take up the food court as that would be very disruptive to other guests. Ideally we’re thinking a small to medium conference room; or, since the rooms are in a block and we’re assuming will all be together, we’re thinking could stage a ‘come-and-go’ with 2 connecting rooms. Decorations are a requirement, and the budget is basically $0 (I know, it’s a tall order!) which is why we’re looking to our TP friends for some help (we use Liners Chat on the phone all the time, and we’re hoping for similar response here). Lastly, the start time would be 9p on a Friday evening, which along with the $0 budget seems to rule out any restaurants in DSprings. We’ve thought about offsite, but all of the traveling party have no rental cars, thus would be addl costs for an already tight budget.
We hope someone out there can help; we do plan to contact the hotel to see what they can do but otherwise we’re REALLY searching for ideas and help! Thanks in advance for your brainstorm ideas!
