    Hmmm....they all seem a little pricey. And unfortunately the TF.N one is the same night as the Tour of Endor send off at DineyWorld.

    There's the Disney Last Tour of Endor party thats for C5 patrons and will be closed to the public. I am thinking about going to that one.

    Most of us already have our tickets to Endor. I thin there is at least 10 of us with our ticket.

    This is my first Celebration.
    Considering that I am interested in doing a few things as a group,....especially partying.
    Will we be making some kind of group decision as to which parties to go to when we have the pre-Celebration meeting here?

    If we were going to something as a group, it would've been the TF.N party - since we're a part of them. But since it's the same night as the Endor party (and the majority of us already have tickets for that), we won't be going.

    As for the other parties, I think it's an individual decision, Vinny. You may want to talk to others, and see if they're interested in going with you. We'll certainly bring it up at this month's meeting.
