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
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
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.
