1. Where will the 2004 Convention be held?
The G.I.Joe Collector's Club Convention will be held at Walt Disney World (Contemporary Hotel) to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of G.I.Joe!
2. What will be the dates of the 2004 convention?
The Convention dates are July 1-4, 2004. Registration is on Thursday night as usual and you will need to stay until Monday as the closing dinner and celebration is at EPCOT on Sunday night. We will be taking chartered buses to EPCOT as the park will be closed due to capacity issues by then. After the dinner, we will view the special 4th of July fireworks. What a great way to celebrate the 4th!
3. Will there be any pre-convention tours offered?
There will be only one tour offered in 2004. We are currently planning a Wednesday tour to NASA.
4. What will the Friday and Saturday night activities be in 2004?
There are no night time activities on Friday and Saturday so that you can go to the parks.
5. Can I make my hotel reservations now?
YES! You can now call and make your reservation for the 40th Anniversary G.I. Joe Collectors' Convention. The room rate is $135 a night at the Contemporary Hotel (which is a great rate). This is the property that is closest to the Magic Kingdom and is the one the monorail runs through the center of. The phone number to call is 407-824-3869. They will only ask for a deposit of the first night. Suites will be offered at 20% off their normal rate. Parking is free for Contemporary Hotel guests and the convention is in the Contemporary Hotel Exhibit area. Guests (registered or general admission) do not have to pay to get into the parks to come to the show.
6. I'd like to come earlier (and/or stay later) to enjoy Disney World. Can I still get the convention rates on hotel rooms at the Contemporary Hotel?
YES! The block rates are good from June 25-July 10.
7. Do I have to pay admission to the park to come to the show and pay general admission prices?
(registered or general admission) do not have to pay to get into
the parks to come to the show. General Admission will
not be allowed to park at the hotel. We have arranged for free remote parking and shuttle to the Hotel during General Admission hours. When you come to the gate, tell the attendent that you need to park in the STOLPORT for the G.I. Joe Convention and he will give you directions.
