    About the timing of the celebration... It doesn't matter when to me. I could not make the last one because it was just too far away. It is closer to me now so I will go... but maybe the reason it's in August is because many other countries (especially in Europe) have August as everyones vacation time. Star Wars is a world wide phenomenon. I think we forget that. Anyway... its another part of the equation.

    That is why there was a Celebration Europe, so we could be selfish and not feel guilty about it!

    Funny!... yeah that's true... I completely forgot about Celebration Europe. And for East Asia there was Celebration Japan as well...

    I know when Celebration IV happened I felt like I was missing out on something. I was just beginning my Boba Fett then. I watched the G4 television coverage of it and was bummed out. It was like a party was happening and I couln't go. So I feel for the people who can't make it for whatever reason.

    BTW Tom, I filled out the C5 fan club application today...did you think it was bad?
    I haven't even started filling it out yet. I think it's a little in-depth for a fan club table application...I mean providing references for people is more than I'm used to.

    As to why fan groups are going to have to pay for tables, I explained this to Art lastnight. Reed Exhibitions (the company hosting C5) does not have a fan table policy...period. Last year I was working on trying to get a combined TDH/Mercs table going on at NYCC, and the company that runs NYCC is also running CV. They wanted to charge us for a table at NYCC also, so I was able to talk them into "bartering" for a table. I had to watch a couple episodes of Little House on the Prairie to get a good idea of how to barter...but in the end I just said heck with it.

    But yeah, I'm betting thats why we are getting charged. They have said it will be "affordable", but that's going to be different from club to club.

    Looking for a place to stay? Not sure if there are any rooms left but one of the closer hotels left that didn't decide to price gouge once they heard that CV was coming!!! Good luck finding reasonable local places to stay...

    Quote Esh said:
    Thinking about staying there too...

    http://www.ExtendedStayAmerica.com/m...e/?HotelID=627

    Just booked...

    check in on 8/12 check out on 8/15 so 3 nights for (44.99/nt + 12.5%) 151.86 total (incl. tax) for a single room with a queen bed, full kitchen, etc...

    They also have access to their sister hotel right across the parking lot so you can use their pool and such for free. Pets are welcomed for a minimal charge as well. The I-Trolley does a pick up right at their front door too... It's within a short walk to the CC regardless.

    Also, they have a room to hold your gear on Sunday when I check out so it won't have to boil in my car...

    I still may cancel this if there is a main hotel with a similar price and/or I just decide to keep it cheap and commute from home but this isn't a bad deal at all. Cancellation is the day of by 6P.

    They have 10 of these type rooms left as of now.

    Thanks Zac for the heads up on this place.

    Well, now I have to agree. The references part of the application was a bit silly. Yeah, Art didn't tell me about the "why we have to pay" part. It will be interesting to see what they wind up charging.

    Tix bought! I hope the new Universal Harry Potter attraction will be fully complete (that'll be our 'other' thing to do in Orlando that week -other
    then a drive out to the ocean). Now back to work on the many projects that need to fill my car to the roof for the drive down.

    So what is the "promotion code" thing all about? I need to buy my tickets quick but don't want to miss out on anything cool or cheap.

    Here is some new information about hotels that I thought all of you would like to know about. It was posted on the FL Garrison forums:

    Quote xrayted said:
    This is from the blog on the Celebration website:

    Quote Lance Fensterman said:

    Celebration V Hotels
    I know everyone is excited over CV’s announcement this week and I’ve gotten a lot of emails and questions on hotels. I also heard from our friends in Orlando that the hotel community is getting a ton of calls already from fans eager to book a room and get a great deal. I want to remind everyone that we are currently contracting huge room blocks for the show and that when we work in volume like that, we usually get pretty good deals. Within 2 weeks we’ll have a ton of hotel deals for you to pick from (some will come online even sooner) so please check our travel page over the next couple of weeks to make sure you get the best deal.

    My advice:
    Wait 2 weeks to book through us so you know you are getting the best deal at an “official hotel”. If you really, really feel like you have to book a room now make sure you can cancel without a penalty. I’d hate for anyone to book a room and then find we have negotiated a better rate at a better hotel and you can’t cancel yours.

    We actually have rates committed from 2 dozen hotel properties near the convention center and now that we’ve finalized the details of CV we are drafting and signing contracts. That takes a little bit of time, but not too long.

    Hang tight, we are working hard to get the very best hotel rates for you at the very best hotels.

    Peter saw this on Twitter today and we want to make sure you don’t pay any more than you need to, that’s why we are here!

    galacticbinder: Several hotels in Orlando have already jacked up their prices for #SWCV. Red Roof from $50 to $95 - Rosen Centre from $124 to $170 #starwars

    "Hard Replica Weapons"
    Also see the footnote on the same page:
    We recognize that many Star Wars fans love to dress up as their favorite characters to express their fandom, and Star Wars Celebration isn’t trying to restrict replica weapons that are part of these costumes. Replica lightsabers, blasters, bowcasters, thermal detonators, gaffi sticks, etc. are all A OK, and you’re encouraged to come dressed as a Jedi, a Sith, a stormtrooper, a Mandalorian, or any other character in the Star Wars galaxy. If, however, you come with a replica of a real world weapon such as an AK-47 or M-16, our security are going to tap on the weapons policy and make sure your prop is clearly branded with an orange cap.
