Once Upon a Time Convention Is Happening This November In Orlando, Florida
Once Upon a Time is having a convention this November 22nd-24th in Orlando Florida. It will be held at The Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at Sea World. Not coincidentally, I’m sure, very close to Disneyworld. It sounds like a fantastic venue, newly renovated with many extra activities already scheduled. From the Enchantacon.com website comes a description of the events that are planned.
“We want the fans to feel enchanted. We have put together many great events that will occur during the course of the weekend,” said convention director Laurie Mahoney. “Of course we will have the traditional star panels, photographs, and autographs. But we have also put together, parties, meet and greets, and special opportunities for all the fans to interact with the celebrity guests.”
Once Upon a Time Cast already scheduled to appear (*UPDATED BELOW!*) at EnchantacCon are Raphael Sbarge (Archie/Jiminy Cricket), David Anders (Dr. Whale), Tony Amendola (Marco/Geppetto), Chad Michael Collins (Frankenstein’s Monster), Michael Coleman (Happy), and Faustino DiBauda (Sleepy). Of course, since it’s early yet, they are still negotiating schedules with Lana Parrilla, Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle, Emilie de Ravin and others.
There are several EnchantaCon packages available, which include special Once Upon a Time events like The Fairy Tale Ball, a Friday Night Cocktail Party, a Saturday night Banquet, an auction, a Sunday morning Breakfast, special photo opportunities, and a trivia contest which I’m told will give the top three winners a very special prize.
You can get your EnchantaCon Weekend with the Stars of Once Upon A Time hotel reservations by calling The Doubletree Inn toll free at 1-800-327-0363. Be sure to mention you are calling for the event to get the special price. More ticket package information can be found at EnchantaCon.com.
A lot of fun is to be found at any Once Upon a Time panel gathering as we have quite a sassy bunch of characters-on and off screen. PaleyFest did nothing but enforce this notion and this fun loving bunch gave one and all a great time to be sure. We will definately be following up with the new guest stars as they are added to the docket.
