Budgeting for the meet up
Your AvatarMeet planning team have tried their best to see if we could get discount tickets to Disney, unfortunately this has come to naught.  Consequently, for the time of year we are going, tickets to visit the Disney parks are in the region of $99 to $107 per person, per day.  There are other options and combinations of tickets available and more information can be found here.

In addition, we will be visiting the
Kennedy Space Center which is about an hour away from where we are staying.  Ticket prices for here are $50 for the day and more information on them is available here.

Remember we will be car sharing so make sure you have a ride and also make sure you give a few dollars to the drivers for parking, gas money and to help offset rental charges.

Coming up in the next issue....
We will be sharing details on the meet up T-Shirts and how you can order yours in time for the event.

Also, with Avatar having a strong environmental awareness theme, we continue to pick up on our responsibilities and will be taking part in some habitat restoration at a local park.  Details of which will be included in the next newsletter.  Until then Eywa ngahu.
