Maybe RSVP's are not permitted for this event. Please consider this seriously before you RSVP, it is very important that we have an accurate count a couple of days in advance to provide to the organization.

Please follow the instructions under 'Files' if you're interested in getting a pass. You must complete the entire sign-up process with Disney and HandsOn (per the instructions) for us to be able to approve the pass. http://www.meetup.com...
You may bring one child per adult. You must monitor your child at all times, and be fully responsible for them. Please note if you will bring a child (and child's age) along with your RSVP.
