    Hi, Sounds like great fun!! Do you have plans for handicapped people? Can’t stand for more than about 10 minutes but I’d love to enjoy the food and the music and dancing.

    • Kristi@UEDA said:

      Yes – we will have seating available for guests, which will accommodate people with disabilities. Also, staff or our volunteers at check-in can assist with any other requests!
