Last year, we went to MNSSHP on 9/2. It was a lucky coincidence. This year, we're aiming for the first party. It looks like MK is closing at 7 as the same night (Friday ) as the first party last year. It also looks like there might be 2 earlier parties - 8/25 and 8/29. There were no corporate parties or special events that week last year, other than the parties. I made hotel reservations for the last week in August/Labor Day, but I'm hesitating on the airfare. Any travel agents hear any rumors?
I'm going to be there that week as well, but booked our airfare inclusive of the package a few months ago just so I wouldn't have to worry about it. I'm now anxiously awaiting the schedule for the party in hopes of adding mnsshp tickets to our trip and we're planning Friday being a MK day with a break shortly after a late lunch in hopes that we'll be back around 5:30 for a par-tay.
