The intent is to open registration on October 1, 2012. It has not yet been decided whether registration will work as a lottery or a first come, first served basis.
The tentative schedule is to have an informal meet and greet to welcome everyone on Tuesday evening, April 10, 2012, probably in the lobby of one of the hotels on Disney property. We plan to spend Wednesday, April 11 through Friday, April 13, 2012 in the Disney parks. As was the case with our visit to Tokyo Disneyland in 2008, we are planning to have one meal event each day, affording us the opportunity to be together for a few hours as a group and to have the rest of each day to explore the parks and have fun on our own. There will probably be an added option to ride the RER commuter rail train into Paris on Saturday, April, 14 for a guided bus tour of the city (in English of course), concluding with a dinner cruise on the Seine River before riding the train back in the evening.
Airfare, hotel accommodations, and park entry will not be included in the price of this event. We realize that some of you are Disney Castmembers and/or Disney Vacation Club Members and will prefer to make your own hotel and park admission arrangements.
Nevertheless, we hope to be able to offer a group rate discounted price for rooms at two or three of the Disney hotels which would include a centralized on-line reservation website for your personal use. And we are also working to obtain discounted pricing for a 3 day park hopper pass.

If you own or wish to purchase a minimum of 5 shares in Euro Disney S.C.A., then you may find it helpful to join the Shareholders Club which offers, among other benefits, a 15% discount at table service and buffet restaurants at Disneyland Paris.
We are waiting for the Business Solutions team at Disneyland Paris to finalize available restaurant space, pricing and menu choices for our meals, and provide group rates for the hotels and park admission. The cap for attendance will most likely be controlled by how many people each meeting space will accommodate. We anticipate that the number will be no less than 50 persons.
Anita and the rest of the Special Events team are working hard to create another magical experience for our members.
