Is anyone else as shocked as I am over the International cost this year. The price went up and the days were cut short? I am surprised in this uncertain economy that Internationals would not be a little more frugal....
We had a $25.00 price increase over last year. No days were cut short at all. The schedule will be virtually identical to last year's. Our prices have held steady in Cinderella for a number of years, but for this year with our move to Dallas and into a MUCH nicer hotel (Westin), we had to make this very modest price increase.
I was curious about your comment so I pulled up my paperwork from last year. I compared it side by side with the paperwork for the 2009 pageant. The cost of all packages is identical. The length of the pageant is identical to last year - a quick spot check of both schedules and I think the schedule is exactly the same. I did notice a $25 increase in the cost of registration - but that was the only change I could identify.
It seems as though everything in life continues to become more expensive....from a gallon of gas to a gallon of milk....I find myself grateful that the Cinderella Program has worked hard to keep prices basically the same year after year and has not cut the quality of the event. This year, the hotel will make the experience even better! Thank you to our International staff and state directors!!!! Julie, Jayde and Zoe Ferraro
