Can I bring my spouse/partner, other family member or a friend?Adoptees are welcome to bring their spouse/partner, any other members of their family or a friend/travel buddy to the Reunion. The registration price is the same for all attendees. With inflation and the subsequent rise in prices for everything across the board, we are unable to offer a discount for the second person in a family this year. The cost of the registration is covering only the cost of the group activities and the farewell dinner - there is no other fee/cost added in over and above the actual costs of the Reunion.3. When should I arrive in Louisville?Plan to arrive sometime on Thursday, June 20, 2024. The first event of the Reunion, the Welcome Reception and Cocktail Party, will be at the hotel in the Backstretch Ballroom, 7:30 pm until 11:00 pm.4. Does the hotel have parking? Is the hotel pet-friendly?The hotel has limited parking available for $18 per day on a first-come, first-served basis. There are multiple parking garages near the hotel that offer overnight parking. The hotel is pet friendly - you may bring your furry friend for an additional charge of $75 for the entire stay.5. How can I travel to Louisville?We chose Louisville because of the myriad of fun activities it offers and because its location is a day's drive or less from 2/3 of the US population. Prefer to fly? The Louisville airport is accessible by direct flights from Boston, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles and has more than 35 nonstop flights per day between major US cities. If you decide to drive and want company, consider asking another adoptee who lives nearby or whose home may be on the way to Louisville to carpool with you to the Reunion.6. If I fly, what are my transportation options to get to the hotel? There are 9 major rental car agencies at the airport: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Payless & Thrifty. For those preferring taxi service, catch a cab at the commercial curb outside baggage claim. Speedy service is just a click away for Lyft and Uber, located on the baggage claim level, on the west side of the terminal. There are a number of limo/van/private car services, as well as public transportation via bus. Several of the board memebrs will be driving to Louisville and will be happy to pick you up at the airport when you arrive if at all possible. Please be sure to give us your airline itinerary as soon as possible. We will do our best to return you to the airport on Sunday, however, we cannot guarantee that we can accomodate you for the return, depending upon your flight times.7. What if I have special dietery needs?
There are some of you who may be vegetarians or have other dietary needs. Please let us know if there are any specific dietary needs and, while we cannot guarantee it, we will do our best to accomodate you.Still have questions?
