"The Avatar Wizard Course is an outside look at the universe. Its objective is to offer a Master a greater familiarity with those regions of creation that lie beneath the familiar."

–Harry Palmer

The 2018 Avatar Wizard Course • February 3-15

 

Please note: The 2018 Wizard Course will start on Saturday, February 3 and will end on Thursday, February 15.

Host Hotels

Star’s Edge has negotiated with several Daytona Beach resort area hotels to provide room blocks for Wizard attendees.

Important Note: Reviewers who stay outside the Star’s Edge room block are required to pay a $300 production fee. Staying outside the room block includes not only staying elsewhere, but also staying at one of the host hotels and not being included in the Star’s Edge room block, as when you book through some other discount program or travel agent. Reserve early to avoid the production fee. Star’s Edge has reserved a large block of rooms but cannot guarantee reviewers will have a room in the room block. Reservations made after the deadlines will be accepted on a space available basis.

Roommate Arrangements

Regarding roommate requests, it is always best to create your own roommate(s). This way, you can align on arrival and departure dates and how many will share the room.

If you would like Star’s Edge to find you a roommate(s), we will do our best to accommodate you. Please understand that we cannot guarantee alignment of your roommate’s arrival/departure dates and your requested number of roommates, but again, we will do our best to honor your request.

Please indicate your 1st and 2nd choice of hotels on your accommodation’s form; you will be informed in your hotel confirmation letter of where your reservation has been made.

Submitting your completed registration and accommodations forms as early as possible will support your accommodation primary. If you have a secondary about your accommodation submission, last-minute changes can be handled the first day of the course at the accommodation’s table at the Ocean Center.
