Day 1: Check-In
Avast ye, landlubbers! There be rough waters ahead! There be a long line for checkin’ ye into this treasure affair. And so began the Second Annual Walt Disney Art Classics Mini-Convention held at the Contemporary Hotel Convention Center in Walt Disney World, March 23 through March 25, 2000. A computer snafu held us at bay but the wait was worth the reward of a very nice welcome gift - an Art Classics piece - a treasure map event title scroll! After having name badges made, the attendees were free to view the auction items and the product preview area in suitably decorated rooms.
