Do I need to attend both nights? Will I miss things if I only attend one night?

Our December 2019 OI Meetup was the most popular date we've ever offered. Due to this, we've decided to continue to offer two dates for February 2020. This is something that a lot of our guests have asked for, but we don't think you'll be disappointed with just one night. There will be slight differences between the two evenings, but overall it'll be the same epic evening (just twice)!

If you have any additional questions about attending one or two nights, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Is my annual pass or daytime theme-park ticket valid for the OI Meetup? Do I need daytime admission in order to attend the OI Meetup?

Since this is a private event, daytime admission is not valid for admission – this includes any daytime park ticket or annual pass. Additionally, due to the nature of the event, we are unable to offer a discount for annual passholders. OI Meetup registration is the only ticket required for this event.

If you have any additional questions about ticketing, please do not hesitate to contact us.

How crowded will this OI Meetup be?

We're unable to disclose the exact number of attendees, but it will be a small fraction of the number of guests in the parks during any given day – There will be little to no waits and crowds. At a previous OI Meetup, almost 60% of those surveyed indicated the Meetup was much less crowded than they expected, while less than 2% said that it was much more crowded than expected.

If you have any additional questions about our OI Meetup, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Is this a real event? How do I know this isn't a scam?

This will be our ninth official Orlando Informer Meetup event night. We have held successful Orlando Informer Meetups in September 2015, May 2016, March 2017, September 2017, June 2018, December 2018, April 2019, and soon December 2019. You should also know that Orlando Informer Meetups and our company are not associated with any timeshares whatsoever.

If you have any additional questions about the legitimacy of our OI Meetup, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Is there a discount for children?

Children under the age of three do not require a ticket. Those three and older will need a regular OI Meetup ticket.

If you have any additional questions about ticketing, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Are you able to accommodate dietary restrictions?

With the Orlando Informer Meetup featuring such a varied menu, there should be items suitable for almost every diet. If you have any specific concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Special meals for dietary restrictions can be prepared upon advance notice, if necessary.

Will the stores be open during the event?

The majority of stores throughout the parks will be open with merchandise for purchase.

If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
