Hi all

With the rumours that the next Star Wars Celebration will be held in Orlando next summer - I am interested to hear what you hope will be featured there. What should be there? Let us know.

Sansweet DID confirm that the event would be on the East half of the states. GREAT for me, being probably the only one on the east coast. Orlando from Maine is only about three hours by plane. Driving would take a couple days.

We just closed on our house TODAY! So in the spring when we get that 8 grand tax credit, I already have it cleared with my wife to take some cash and I am going!

We have relatives in Florida. Maybe I'll get to go too. Hopefully I can plan a vacation.

I was really hoping for Indy again since I live three hours away.

Congratulations on the house DJ - I know it has been a rather stressful time.

Similarly, congratulations om your attending CV. It looks like you will be the site's coverage specialist! Just make sure you take loads of photos!

I have a lot of family in Daytona Beach (where I used to live). Its only abt 45 minutes away. In fact I went to Orlando almost everyday. Don't kno if I'll make the trip down there tho.

I am hoping for Dallas or Houston for C VI. Granted we now have fan days every year, but Celebration iz so much bigger.

I just got the thumbs up from my wife. If it is in Orlando we are going. Hopefully I can get the time off of work and come up with the money. I need to plan now because this spring won't be far away.

SWEET DF!

I don't think I'll have the money to buy tix as soon as they go on sale, but I really do plan on going! It would be GREAT to meet up and both be able to cover the event for the site!

Thanks for the congrats guys! It was a very stressfull time. I'm sure Darth Myles will agree!

J1m, I will try my best to send you an email in the next couple days. Couple things I wanted to talk to you about. Nothing major.

Looks like FL it is. Here is an article about CV.

We are starting to seriously plan now, Disney and Star Wars Celebration. As long as everything goes well, I will take TONS of photos and we can use them here. I have a photo site from CIII but I didn't have a digital camera back then so the pictures aren't as great as they could have been.

I know what you are saying - When I went to Celebration Europe - before WOSW and this site. I took some photos, but mainly myself or wife at displays. If I had known that this would have come about I could have taken loads of cool pics of the show and the stars.

Jim, I have to say, the website is looking AWESOME! The front page is looking nice with that C5 Boba Fett pic!

I have to say, the thing I hope to see lots of at CV is of course you know who...





Since it will be the 30th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back, I have a feeling this show will have plenty of Boba!

I am also being told (by my wife) that every time I want to buy a new Star Wars figure from now until August, I am to drive to the bank and deposit the amount of the figure into the fund marked "Orlando or Bust!" instead. This trip better be worth it!

DJ, if we both get there we will definitely have to hang out. I am going to ask my boss about this way ahead of time to make sure I have the vacation time available. I need to know that I'm all clear before buying tickets. Then I have to figure out how to travel. I have never flown. I think I'd rather fly than burn up vacation days driving.

I'm guessing that I may only get to go for 1 to 2 days, not all 4. I need to hit Disney World too. Also visit my Aunt in Jacksonville. Possibly look up some old friends in Sarasota. (I grew up in FL)

Sounds like an action packed vacation. Now if only it would start snowing money! Smile

Well I would hope to see at Celebration V myself there but looks like with my job and calendar not going to happen. Looks like I'm going to have to wait until Celebration XV comes out before I'll ever make one.

GREAT!!

So far it looks like DF, Xaos and myself will be there. My brother is planning on coming too. Maybe we can try to get Watto's shirts made or something?

Will have to figure out a way we can all meet and hang for a bit!

Oh, sorry DF. I thought you had posted something about your wife saying you could go.

Bummer!

DJ, that was probably me. I had a Vader avatar that day! LOL!


J1m, at C3 the guys from sandtroopers.com were there selling shirts for $5 each. My wife and I both bought one just because they were so cheap. It has a sweet dewback picture on it. The problem is every time I wear it someone thinks I am in the military!!!

I looked up prices for tickets finally.

* Adult Four-Day Passes are $120
* Thursday Passes are $45
* Friday Passes are $45
* Saturday Passes are $50
* Sunday Passes are $45
* Kids Four-Day Passes are $50 and One-Day Passes are $25.

All attendees six-years-old and up need a ticket to enter Star Wars Celebration. Please note, Star Wars Celebration recommends that all children under 18 attend with an adult, and all children under 13 must be accompanied by a grown-up. (Discounted Kids Passes are available for attendees who are between six and 12 years old.)

For more info go here...

http://www.starwarscelebration.com/

Ticket prices go up $10 to $15 at the door.

If anyone is interested in Disney it's like $79 a day! I may have to cut that out of the program! LOL!

It is a MUCH better deal to buy the 4 day passes. You save money right off the bat, then like you said they go up even more at the event!

I really hope that my first check after Christmas I can get my tix! Then after that I can figure out the flight.

I figured I would put this in here if anyone is interested in seeing my Celebration 3 photos. I uploaded a lot of them to flickr and then ran out of free bandwidth. I'll throw more on in January.

This ought to get you ready DJ! I'm really pushing this Florida vacation thing but I'm not sure I want to go that deep in debt for this. We'll see what happens.

Here is my flickr link...

Just so you know, I heard an interview with Steve Sansweet and he said they have never sold out except maybe when George showed up on the Saturday of C3. There probably isn't a huge rush to get tickets. I'll wait a little while until I plan some things out first.

He said it isn't like a comic con which has thousands more people than the Star Wars shows.

I bought my tickets a week or so before C3 happened and they had plenty still. The GL thing sold out after the show had begun I believe.

I think I am giving up the dream of going to CV. We were really going to do it, but as time goes on it seems it probably won't happen. Who knows, it's a 50/50 chance right now I guess. It comes down to do I really want to go deeper into debt for all of it? I still have a lot of medical bills I'm paying for from when I had surgery in 2008.

At Celebration Europe - the first day (Friday) was lovely and clear - no queues etc. Saturday sold out - all the passes went - but they still let people in - It was rammed with horrendous queues even if you had a proper Sat pass!
