Q. Can we attend the retreat if we live nearby and don't want to book a hotel room? No, unfortunately not. The retreat is set up as a full fan experience requiring participants to be staying at the resort location.
Q. Will seating at the concerts be reserved? Yes. We strongly discourage forming lines prior to these events and fully encourage fairness for all. Seating will be assigned for all three concert events and the order that the bookings are made will determine the seat locations. In a perfect world, each guest will view a concert from the front, middle and back of the venue space. This is not guaranteed but is what we aim for.
Q. Are kids allowed and if so, what does it cost? Yes, kids are allowed and the retreat fee is the same - $550.
Q. What if I don't have a roommate? Can I still come? Absolutely! Previous retreat guests who have traveled alone can attest that it's a great way to make new friends with same interests!
Q: Is the retreat handicap accessible? Technically, yes... but please note that most events are outdoors and might require some maneuvering through the grass.
Q: What is the weather like this time of year? As we all know, weather is far from predictable but history in the area has shown temps to hover around high 70s/low 80s in late May.
Q. Why aren't meals included this time? With various dining options on site we felt it was a great opportunity for our guests to dine on their own schedule, be able to order the exact meals they want and meet their dietary requirements with no issues. It's also incredibly more cost efficient this way rather than the group buffet option.
