Orlando Informer Meet-up

Has anyone attended these events? They sound amazing! It sounds like DAH on steroids! Parks open from 6pm - 1:30am - Unlimited rides & Unlimited food / non-alcoholic drinks / snacks & treats from around the park. They have a group rate at the hotels ranging from $70 - $100 / night!

I read they’ve been doing it for years and was hoping anyone here might have a review!

I did one last December. It was superbly organised. Very impressive operation. Everything was a walk-on, except Hagrid. I didn’t time Hagrid but it was certainly under an hour. Far too much free food. And free unlimited Butterbeer!

Am very happy to recommend it without reservation.

Hmm, it does seem like a lot of fun! We already are staying for 5 days this December with Express passes from RPR. Wonder if the extra cost would be worth it for us. Those tickets are expensive, and no AP discounts.

Probably not, if you have five days of EPs.

It’s a great event, but more for people who want to get everything done in a short amount of time.

I think you’re right. It would be perfect for our next WDW trip if we wanted to spend one night doing a Orlando Informer event.

That being said, the lines are shorter than EP lines are. Because there aren’t any lines. Though who knows how busy daytime UOR will be in December.

I love y’all but you tempt me with ways to spend more money! I looked this up and it sounds like a better deal than MVMCP. MVMCP wasn’t that exclusive and what included food?

It totally is.

I haven’t done their meet ups but I heard good things. They haven’t been doing them for 10 years (site isn’t even that old) but they have been doing them for at least 4 or 5.

It states “10th meet up” not 10 years of meet ups. It appears that they do 2 sets a year (one in spring and one in winter), so we ar more looking at about five years of meet ups.

Just dreaming of going to a Meet Up and then Epcot’s Flower and Garden…:heart_eyes:

Thanks for clairfing! I edited it to “years” now. :smile:

I just bought tickets for my husband and I the first weekend! We are doing this for our 10th Anniversary. I have heard so many good things about this event.

If Florida can get it’s COIVD numbers down to reasonable numbers or there’s a treatment, I’ll see you there! :wink::mask:

We have done 2 separate Orlando Informer events. One in 2017 and one in 2019. Both were great! The first was specific to the Harry Potter areas the second was all of both parks. Very low wait times and a ridiculous amount of “free” food.

You can get a small break in ticket price if you buy two nights as opposed to just one. If you are adults or have older kids this is totally worth it. They generally go from late evening to early morning hours so taking little kids might not be the best idea.
