We are super excited to be planning our 2019 event! Stay tuned to this page as we will continue to update this page with all the event details.

March 14-16, 2019

Our first ever AWEsome Retreat will be held March 14-16, 2019 with our home base being Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel. How fitting that our first event is being held at the first Theme Park!!!! If you have not been to Knott’s Berry Farm it is full of awesome roller coasters, family rides, and great food.

Lodging Options

We suggest staying at the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel during the event for easy access. They currently are not offering a block rate, because the room prices for these dates start as low as $115/night (as of October 22, 2018). We suggest booking now to lock in your rate. Also, remember that you can always find a roommate to help with cost. If prices go up, we will look into block rates at that time.

If you are looking for alternate lodging, our founder, Becca, has personally stayed at the Radisson, The Courtyard and The Hilton in Buena Park and would suggest any of those locations. Anaheim is also a short 10 to 20 minute drive away (depending on traffic).

Day 1 – March 14, 2019

Day one will focus on education and networking. We will meet at the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel for educational sessions and panels. A light breakfast will be provided, as well as lunch (Mrs. Knott’s Famous Chicken – YES!) and light snack. We are currently working on evening activities for day one so stay tuned.

Day 2 – March 15, 2019

Day two will start with a buffet breakfast and our final sessions and panels. After a short break we will get to explore Knott’s Berry Farm. We will have in-park challenges and other fun activities to help you explore the first Theme Park.

Day 3 – March 16, 2019

We are currently finallizing day 3, but it will be another day in one of Southern California’s Theme Parks – Disneyland!!! We will have in-park challenges, but you will also have plenty of time to explore on your own. We will finish with a wrap party and then attendees may continue exploring the park for the remainder of the evening. We are working on providing transportation to Disneyland from Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel either via their shuttle, or another service. Attendees will need to book their own shuttle or other transportation back from Disneyland to their hotel.

Extending Your Stay

While the conference may be over the night of March 16, 2019, we know that this area has so much to offer. If you would like to extend your stay, our Premiere Sponsor Get Away Today is happy to help you find a great deal.

Private Facebook Group

All of our attendees will have access to a private Facebook group to get to know each other before the retreat, ask questions and more. Be sure to request to join once you have purchased your event pass.

AWEsome Tailwind Tribe

We will have a secret tribe on Tailwind for AWEsome speakers and attendees to help support each other and promote each other’s travel and Theme Park content.


*Please note that while we will be in the parks, we do ask attendees to participate in scheduled activities. There will be free time where you can meet up with your family, but out of respect for our sponsors, we ask you participate in challenges and attend in-park events.
