Yep, bout bloody time to!
The logo is more TDH celebration!
Yeah. Another vacation....
Nooooooooooooo... too far away!!!!
I was really hoping for a closer venue, and the time of year makes it a toss up for me... either FanExpo in Toronto, or C5. Time to start saving I guess.
Ack! Right in between SDCC and DragonCon!
Yeah, it's gonna be a pick-and-choose this year for some people this year.
Other than that I'm excited! Art, wait till you see the fan group application. I hope you don't have an outstanding FBI record. =P
Orlando? Maaan.. hehe! J/K
Great to hear the announcement is out.
I am blowing off SDCC. This type of specific event doesn't come around too often
This is awesome that they finally decided to tell us when and where!!!
I wish that I could bring my wife and kids as well Arturo, but my wife is pretty sure that her side of the family is planning to bring her and the kids out west some time this summer to visit... so I'll more than likely be going to C5 solo.
I'm hoping that I can afford to bring my Jango, but as it sits right now, my tub is illegal as it's 1" or 2" square too big! I can onmly afford to go to one major con/event next year, and C5 fits the bill. I'd also love to finally meet the lot of you in person.
AWESOME NEWS! Right in my backyard too!!!
Me and my wife will be coming. Her sister lives there and so it'll be nice to see them and go to wdw and celebration. Def. Excited.
Sounds good! Disneyworld and Star Wars. It doesn't get much better than that!
I've heard horror stories of shipping being as much as or more than airfare... I seem to recall hearing tales of shipping fees upwards towards $300 to $500 dollars on over-sized tubs!
If I were to drive it, it would take me 2 to 3 days of all out driving to get to Orlando from Ottawa... airfare would be far cheaper considering todays gas prices.
I'll just have to research the different airlines, and find out what the current limitations are for over-sized baggage. Hope they don't charge me into bankruptcy.
Well, going and coming from SDCC costs me $400 extra just to transport my gear on the plane. So I would say depending on how big your tub is, and how much weight you have in it, then your going to pay around $200-$400 just for that part of the trip.
How much do tickets usually cost for this?
I shipped my costume the day before my arrival at Dragon Con in 2006. I sent it FED-Ex priority through my corporate account, it was about $400. I shipped back 5-Day Ground, at around $150. I personally prefer shipping than doing the TSA thing. I flew with my Bacara costume to Adcon for Jon and Rose's wedding in 2007 and I was charged a total of $350 and those TSA folks went through my entire bin, and dishelved the packing. I ended-up with a few busted parts.
Wao, that is a great news, from Puerto Rico to Orlando it is a 2 hours flight, I want to go with all my family so i need to make some extra cash.

About bloody time they made a decision!
At this point I don't know if I'm going solo or with the family... finances are really tight right now - But I will be there! DC and SDCC were out of the picture anyway, I was hoping and praying they would make a decision on this, because CV was all I could afford this year.
