officially adjourn Arielcon 2001. Sniff! Sniff! Always a sad moment.
The times on this schedule will have to be adhered to rather strictly.
There will be people coming in at all different times so this way we
found easily. Everyone can come and go as they please, no one has to
everything I have planned. This way people can come and go and the
can still get back together easily.
Here is all the legal boring stuff but I have to say it anyway......The
Ariel convention or Arielcon is not associated with Disney at all. It
just a bunch of fun, goofy people who have met because of the internet
decide to get together once a year in one spot. Anyone under the age
must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to attend. We don't
to be one of those headlines where someone runs off to meet someone on
internet without telling parents etc.......
O.K. Disney World...ready or not, here we come!!!!!
