    That's a great question! I also had a blast and can't wait for the next one.

    It was very expensive last year and Disney has significantly raised their rates since then.

    That said, it was a total blast to play, and hopefully we can work something out.

    Raised their rates for what - use of the "festival of fools" arena, for the awards/dessert ceremony? Then we can have it somewhere else (hotels are all around).

    Raised their rates to have a rally or scavenger hunt in the park? I'm not sure how they would know, but if so... can't we raise participation prices to match?

    Yes... I want to join this year.. I was in the park on the same day everyone else was doing the rally.. and I was sooo jealous that I didn't participate..

    There should be some way to work things out...

    My guess would be if there is anything, it may not be until next year (hey - put it together with the 3 year party!) because the fall is pretty booked up with people going on cruises and to WDW and then it is full holiday stuff at the park. Just a theory anyway. I did keep the last weekend in September open just in case though!
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Um... this has some interesting possibilities... tie something in with the anniversary... maybe try to do something bi-annually...that would give us more time to work out details... interesting... very interesting indeed.

    Re: Gumball Rally 2 ???

    From what I understand, when you want to have that large of an event, they pretty much make you run it through their special events department. Otherwise they could kick us all out of the park. The up-front deposit alone is ridiculous and puts MC in a precarious position of not recovering costs unless we charge more, which means less people can play, which gets us no closer to covering expenses.

    It's hard to hide such a large scale event, we have visibility in the parks, and they could kick us out for running a profit-making business inside their profit-making business. Not that we make a profit, but that's the reasoning.

    Ah. I wasn't aware of that. Um.... well maybe we can come up with something. We have a lot of creative, talented people around here. So if anyone can come up with anything.. go ahead and fly it. Can't promise that it will work but it never hurts to dream right?

    Absolutely not! It hasn't been ruled out and nobody has forgotten about it. Rest assured if something comes up, you'll hear it here first!

    You know, I have to say, just coming off of our own version of the Gumball Rally this weekend, just because there's nothing "official" in the works, doesn't mean you can't do it yourselves! Grab some friends, make up your own rules, and get to it! We did, and we had a blast.
