Upcoming event at Disney / Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainmen

Received this email and let Earl know I would pass this along to our members.

Mr. Sayles,

I am Earl D. Karper, Sr. and have been getting your e-mails and information for years at I am the volunteer chairman for the engineers’ & trainmen’s union this year. From your rally, Larry Scott is coming to our Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainmen – Southeastern Meeting Association gathering at Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort for two days or so.

Albeit short notice and as a “perk” for FLARP people, I am offering to open this up to your members. They would register as “Member Type” Adult Guest and pay only a $50 registration fee (full union members fees are $149 and up). Of course, union activities and classes are open to BLET/BLET-A members only but the discounted room rates and the discounted park tickets would be available. The website for more information and to register and make reservations / purchase park tickets is As for the discounts I am able to offer: The normal room rates are $196/weekdays and $210/weekends. Our rate is $141 every day – a savings of $55 - $69 per night. The “Adult Guest” registration fee is $50, so for the first night plus the registration, you will have saved $5 - $19. These room rates are available from June 24th through July 5th.

Likewise, the park admission tickets* are approximately 1/3 off of regular price. Being from this area, you know Disney never offers discounts. This group would be a way to be able to use the discounts. * IMPORTANT NOTE: the reduced rate full day and longer tickets are only available until June 12th. The “After 2 p.m.” and “After 4p.m.” tickets stay available until July 5th.
