    Would love to be there for that. Might be a great reason to visit

    And with that, I have reached post #50. I can calm down now.

    Hah! I just got an email from my boss yesterday confirming that our yearly conference is in Orlando next year during that week. Won't get to go enjoy any of it, but maybe I'll see a little bit from afar.

    Hmm. . . I don't know about booking a hotel this early. The OC convention center is enormous. There's a North Concourse
    and a West Concourse. The Hilton is next to the North and the Rosen Centre Hotel is next to the West.
    Celebration VI was set up in the West Concourse and the Celebration "block" of hotel rooms was in the Rosen Centre.

    I think I'm going to wait till the 25th and see what the main Celebration website is offering for hotel rooms.

    I would book now man. You don't pay to reserve your hotel and you can cancel anytime. I booked a room at the Hilton along with many members of our Garrison. If you know you're going, get in before they are all sold out.

    If its anything like last time...their sites will be down because of all the people booking....a few of us have booked just in case....Im thinking about staying at shades of green in Disney...save a bunch of $$ but well be driving down...if youre driving you can stay there as a retiree....

    Question: what resource did you use to book this far out? most of the sites and members discounts I have access to won't let you book for this date-range for another month or so...

    Hotel booked...across the street from convention. I made the mistake of buying Comic Con tickets first and finding a hotel was a pain. See you all in Florida!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I simply looked at a google map of the hotels surrounding the convention center. Then I booked directly on the hotel site. Make sure the hotel allows cancellations in the event you cant make it. best of luck

    I used Google Chrome and was in and out within 5 minutes. I know I'm a day late to this party but it may help anyone else who hasn't picked up badges yet

    Picked up my 4-day pass as well. Booked at the Hyatt Regency right in front of the convention center for all days but Thursday (they were all booked up for that day). Gotta find a hotel for Thursday now. Can't wait to spend some time with some great people down there in Florida.

    Got our tickets and booked our hotel before they even went on sale.

    No, there isnt a conventon center large enough or one that has appropriate hotels/parking for the area.

    Also now that Disney owns LFL im pretty sure in the US they will keep alternating Florida for the east coast and Anaheim for the west coast.

    So for those of you that have been at SWC before, just how bad are the lines for panels without the VIP tickets? What sort of time are you looking at for waiting in line?

    I've just been to the one last year. I'd say it's better than San Diego Comic Con lines, but still lengthy. You do have to plan ahead and there's a great app to keep you organized.

    I was able to get in to see Ian McDiarmid fairly quickly, and stayed to see Mark Hamill. I think it all really depends on on what it is.

    I waited in line for 4 hours to ride around in an X-Wing for 15 seconds so I could do this:


    The line for the preview of Battlefront itself was even longer.

    Jeremy Bulloch's autograph line was pretty lax, but my brother had to put his name down on a list to get Mark Hamill's autograph, and he didn't get called back until the last day of the convention to stand in line for several hours.
