What specifically do you fear will make this event so un-affordable?
Orlando is a relatively inexpensive town. There are tons of really cheap hotels. We usually get one with a kitchen just a couple miles from Disney then we have as many meals at the hotel as possible and it hardly costs us more money for food than if we stayed at home. Other than that everything else race related will cost the same as a race anywhere else.
It all depends on where you're coming from and if you consider it racing or a vacation and what you would spend on the vacation....Hauling from say, Indianapolis, is what a 14-16 hour drive? So you've got a day or two invested each way, a hotel if you drive 2 days each way. Gas will be $3 if not $3.50 then, so you're looking at least $300 in gas, then your hotels for the week, even if cheaper, you're looking at another $400-500 for the week, then add in food. And what good is a race down there if you don't actually go to Disney World for a day or two....there's another $200 minimum, probably more. You're well over $1000, before nearing any type of actual racing costs. Don't get me wrong....I'm not saying I wouldn't do it. For a trip to Disney and racing, thats not all that bad actually. But, in this economy, and if you have to travel a decent ways from out of state, there will be quite a few who don't make it, because they can't spend that on a "racecation", Hey....I'm copyrighting that phrase!!!!
In perspective, this weekends trip to Columbus before racing expenses takes 2 1/2 hours each way and will cost me about $100 in gas and food, I choose to go over early Friday and stay so my driver is well rested (ok...me too, lol), so its $200. I suppose the coolness of racing at Disney is worth 5x what Columbus is (Columbus guys dont take offense please), but I think the bigger problem and cost comes into the days off from work.
If somehow bigger haulers and USAC can move some of the cars down, it would help, but you still have to get you and your family down there one way or another and with the ridiculous additions of baggage fees, its getting darn near cheaper to drive everywhere....
