NEW!! Helpful and fun ORLANDO FAQs

-I paid for my registration now what is next?
Congratulations! You are now headed for the biggest Sweepstakes party event of the year! You will be added to the master convention email list and receive several emails the first of which is an invite to the Shopper Service.

-What is Shopper Service and why do I want to participate?
First please realize that your registration gives you FREE entry to hundreds of wonderful prizes that will be given out during the convention. Additionally the convention holds optional raffles for many, many additional prizes drawn and awarded at the banquet. These paid entry raffles are collectively called the ‘Shopper Service’. Years ago attendees would bring cash, stamps, etc. to a convention and enter for same while waiting in long lines. For Spf25Orlando by using PayPal and credit cards attendees may ‘shop’ for these raffle entries from home, no lines in Orlando and budget their entries from month to month. There is a limit on the number of entries as explained in the Shopper Service email along with other details. You may also fully participate in these raffles when you get to Orlando by bringing cash, stamps etc. You may also do a mixture of both Shopper Service ahead of time and enter at the convention if you choose. The convention keeps track so that no one enters more than the stated limits. Oh yes did we mention that one raffle is a CAR?! Someone will win a car at the convention! And dozens and dozens of lucky attendees will win CASH, Forever stamps, stamped post cards, post card stamps, major gift cards, Florida scratch off tickets and yes that car! How fun would that be?

-If I buy shopper Service will I get a receipt of my purchase?
PayPal will give you a receipt for your purchase and the convention will rely on these as the official receipt.

-I am flying into Orlando do we have a discount shuttle service to get to the hotel?
Yes the Mears shuttle offers a $4 discount coupon at the hotel web page: http://www.spf25orlando.com/AirportShuttle.html

-Is there a Shuttle service to the theme parks from the hotel?
The resort has a shuttle that will go to Universal, Sea World (very close), Aquatica and Wet n’ Wild. Upon check in you must tell the front desk your plans and they will call/contact you with the schedule they have available.

-Do we have a Facebook page?

-Where is the closest Grocery/ Liquor Store?
Just across the street from the resort, in walking distance for many, is a Publix grocery! There is an on-property liquor store at the resort.
