Wikimania of my dreams:

Location: Reykjavik (surprisingly cheap airfare from both SF, 
Washington/BWI, and Orlando/Sanford!). Alternatively, Nuremberg (one of 
my parents was born and grew up there but I've never been, and I hear 
the castles are spectacular. Also, isn't there a really big auto racing 
ring nearby).
Transportation: Each participant who verifies themselves to the 
foundation as a sysop on any Wikimedia project, gets their conference 
entrance fee waived. All Foundation employees and board members must be 
required to ride Segway scooters the entire time they are at the project.
Food: There must be sushi, bbq, fish and chips, GOOD pizza, doner, and 
thai on site. Everything else we can go out for.

Ok, that covers where it is, how to get there, and what I'm eating. Yep 
that's about the most important things. Everything else is flexible.
