Megaplex guests of honor

Megaplex 8 was the eighth incarnation of the Megaplex furry convention. The theme was "Toyland! Christmas in July". The convention occured on the weekend of July 24-26, 2009.[1]

The convention moved back to the greater Orlando metropolitan area after two years in Jacksonville. The convention hotel was the Radisson WorldGate Resort in West Kissimmee, located on US 192, one mile to the west of World Drive in the tourism area south of Walt Disney World Resort. The negotiated room fee was $89 per night.[2]

The guest of honor was BigBlueFox, who hosted an all-night DJ rave from Saturday until Sunday morning.[3]

The total attendance for the con reached 425, a significant increase from the previous years' Jacksonville location. $1500 was raised for The C.A.R.E. Foundation.

Megaplex 9 will be scheduled in the same Radisson hotel, although with plans for a larger part of the hotel's area reserved for the dealer's den, as well as a 'zoo-like area' for lounging and socializing.
