As previously announced, we are greatly honored to announce a very exclusive special event based out of San Francisco over the weekend of Friday, April 1 - Sunday, April 3, 2011 to honor the Disney family.
Although travel and accommodations are not included as part of the event package, we are working to finalize arrangements for group rating pricing at the landmark Palace Hotel in San Francisco. http://www.sfpalace.com. You will soon be able to contact the hotel directly to make reservations.
Event registration will be the morning of Friday, April 1, 2011 at the Palace Hotel starting at 9:00 a.m. We are hoping to have a reception area available with coffee and danish.
Late that morning, we will split the group onto two motorcoach buses, at staggered times to be announced, to be driven to the Silverado Vineyards in Napa. Each group will receive a private tour and have the opportunity to participate in wine tastings. Dress comfortably. Either on the way there or on the way back, there is a plan for each bus to stop at Gott's Roadside, formerly Taylor's Automatic Refresher, for lunch on your own.
On Saturday, April 2, 2011, the bus(es) will depart in the morning from the Palace Hotel, again at a time to be announced, to the Walt Disney Family Museum within The Presidio of San Francisco. Each attendee will be provided a 2 day pass to cover
admission for that day and Sunday as well, thereby ensuring that everyone has plenty of time to see everything.
The Disneyana Fan Club will be hosting a luncheon that Saturday at the Museum, catered by Wolfgang Puck, presenting our Heritage Award to the Disney family. Walt Disney's grandson, Walter E. D. Miller, has graciously agreed to attend and accept the
award on behalf of the entire Disney family. Dress is business casual. Bus transportation back to the Palace Hotel will only be available when the Museum closes at 6:00 p.m.
On Sunday, April 3, 2011, there will be a group continental breakfast or light brunch at the Palace Hotel, time to be announced. Transportation to the Museum on Sunday is on your own.
The price for the entire weekend package is $425.00 per person. This will include the bus to Silverado Vineyards, the private tour at Silverado, the bus to and from the museum on Saturday, a 2-day admission to the museum (sorry, no discounts for
museum members), the Heritage Award Luncheon, and the Sunday morning meal at the Palace Hotel.
We are also offering a Saturday only ticket at $225.00 per person which includes the bus, a one day admission to the museum, and the Heritage Award Luncheon. Members who attended the July, 2010 DisneyanaMania Convention with an Enthusiast,
Fanatic, or Groupie package and pre-registered at that time have been guaranteed a weekend package or Saturday only ticket for this special event.
