2015: SPECTRE Tour

Am I too soon?

Not at all. I’m sure Mr Bond is eager to start his tour.

<> on April 1, 2015 in Miami Beach, Florida.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join M, the BCW Productions and BondFanEvents.com crew of fans and collectors for an early movie showing of SPECTRE on a huge screen, followed by fun in the winter sun at locations from Goldfinger, Thunderball, Moonraker, Licence to Kill, Casino Royale, and the Bond novels…

Thursday, November 5
Visit the spectacular Aston Martin showroom in Orlando, Florida and get your fill of the new Bond Omega series of watches before our group departs to explore the shops, sights and sounds (and tastes) at the Hard Rock Casino in Fort Lauderdale. Late night features a visit to two unique Bond film locations before we toast the action with drinks, high above Biscayne Bay atop a skyscraper.

Goldfinger

Friday, November 6
See the best of Miami’s Bond film locations.  Drink in the atmosphere at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach with its recent multimillion dollar renovations, and dine at Joe’s Stone Crab from Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger. Visit the Dezer Bond Collection at the Miami Auto Museum with 50,000 sq. ft. of Bond showroom covered with over 60 vehicles from 23 Bond films. Spend hours at the museum taking photos and videos and enjoying an insiders’ tour of the vehicles and their provenance, along with a special look at thousands of items on display from the world-famous Doug Redenius OO7 Memorabilia Collection. Evening brings us to watch and thrill with our group to SPECTRE, the 24th Eon Productions Bond epic. Dine and hang with friends before we take to the road for movie talk and more adventures.

Actor Robert Davi Portrait Session

Saturday, November 7
Do the keys like a native as we explore the bridge and airport from exciting chase scenes in Licence to Kill. Tour beautiful Key West including the Hemingway House and other Bond film locations. See the spectacular sunset celebration from our private spot. Later, enjoy another showing of SPECTRE as a fan group. The second time’s the charm, Mister Bond!

Sunday, November 8
Follow Oddjob’s route as he was pursued by Felix Leiter and the CIA by day before stepping onto our Moonraker river boat tour in the late afternoon. This is your chance to go downriver where the explosive Bond 11 Boat Chase was lensed in Florida, while avoiding Q’s limpet mines. Return to Orlando and a reluctant farewell until we’re once again licensed to tour.

    1. Thanks for the note, Randy. By September 1 or when space runs out, whichever comes first. By September 1 we want to confirm head count, museum and show tickets, etc. Thanks!

  1. Just a few more questions, Matt!

    Do we need our own transportation to the first event in Orlando?

    Do we need any dress up clothes?

    Is breakfast included with the hotel or is that on our own?

    What time are we getting back to Orlando on Sunday and are you providing transportation directly to the airport?

    1. If our schedules dovetail in Orlando I’d be happy to pick you up at the airport. If not, I’d ask you to take ground transportation to meet us.

      Business casual for the Miami nightclub evening–everything else is comfortable/casual four touring Bond locations/sightseeing.

      Dining is available at the hotel but isn’t included with hotel registration.

      Should be in Orlando between 4:30 and 5:00 PM on Sunday. A courtesy stop will be made at Orlando International on the way to downtown Orlando.

    1. Hi Roger,

      What kinds of details are you seeking? We are traveling as a group roundtrip from Orlando through Miami to Key West and back. The hotel is $475 per person double occupancy. Single rate will be higher. You are welcomed to our roommate matching service and/or you need not stay at our hotel to participate. There are a number of neighboring hotels but the Regency has very good rates and rooms for the November season.

  2. Dear M:

    Two inquiries, if I may. I take it I would need to arrive in Orlando Wednesday night to be ready for Thursday, so one night’s hotel stay in Orlando seems logical. If you have anything planned for those of us arriving early (Wednesday night) let us know. Moreover, let us know our meeting point in Orlando on Thursday. Finally , where do you want us to send our money? Shall I send it to you just like we arranged for our New Orleans Bond event together? So looking forward to the Spectre Weekend. Can’t wait! PS. What attire do you recommend for the nightclub?

    Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

    Gratefully Yours,
    Misha Pakdaman

    1. Hi Misha,

      People are traveling from across the U.S. to arrive Thursday, so events do not start there before 4 PM. Some of us might be game for something fun early on Wednesday, however. I’ll keep you posted along with our rendezvous point for Mission: 1600 hours on Thursday. Payment can come by posted mail, credit card, PayPal. Let’s touch base offline.

      For the Miami nightclub, slacks and a dress shirt or polo shirt would be perfect for men.

      Thanks!

  3. For those in early on Wednesday, I recommend the Best Western Universal Inn near Universal Studios. It offers clean, well-appointed rooms with a courtesy breakfast for spies.

    This hotel is also located close to the action and some of us in on Wednesday night/Thursday morning will do some pre-Bonding before we Bond!

  4. M,

    I am just now starting to make reservations for the flight down. Do you
    have me booked for 3@ $179 per person for the tour? Can I call you and pay
    with a credit card?

    Also, I want to book 2 hotel rooms at the $475 rate.

    What time do we need to be there on Thursday. I need to arrange my flight
    into Orlando?

    Thank you,
    James Copeland
