Discussion in 'FanForce: Star Wars Celebration VI, VII, Europe II' started by Obi Anne, Aug 10, 2013.
Have just reserved the Hilton - hoorah!
The next Celebration, in my opinion, should be in.........................DALLAS DALLAS DALLAS DALLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Two MORE hotels pop up today #starwarscelebration#CVII Courtyard by Marriott & Portofino Inn & Suites
Ugh please no. I've been to three different conventions there and felt so trapped with nothing to do.
How about Austin? Live music capitol of the world!
I'd settle for Houston, although the humidity is a killer.
Hmmm....Austin is nice. Dallas is still my first choice for a con. I was raised just outside of Dallas and love it there!!!!!!
Keep this discussion to the hotels in Anaheim, the celebration after that can be discussed somewhere else.
hi! im from Venezuela a country north of brazil east from colombia =) we have a problem with $$$Currency, its a big issue that some ppl dont understand because its very uncommon , the fact is, for travelling venezuelans only have 2500$ to spend!
now that i told you that, what do you recommend me to do? where should i stay? i've never been in CA. =)
There are lots of reasonably priced hotels/motels in the area. One of the biggest money saver is finding someone to share a hotel room. It's worked out well for me in the past. You just need to make sure you discuss ground rules and come to an understanding before hand. I'm sure someone will start a roommate thread closer to the event.
If you prepay for some of the costs of your travel does that count toward the $2500?
the government gives us 2500$ to use with our credit cards.... 500$ Cash and 400$ to spend via internet per year... i think i can pay hotel reservation or car rent with those 400 =)
Wow! I haven't post here in ages!
As soon as the accommodations were available, I booked right away.
I informed fellow travelers that no matter what, I was booking the Marriott.
Being a member of the 501st I was seriously thnking about staying in the host hotel.
But changed my mind. The Marriott is across from the convention center and I am
happy with that. Yes, it's a little more, but my feet will be glad that I paid a little extra
for a shorter walk.
The advantage here is being able to save a little more with the convention being a little
more than a year away.
I still have no idea where i'm gonna stay smh
Yeah I think I'm going to wait till after Christmas before I book a hotel, December is such an expensive month. Hopefully there'll be something not to expensive.
Keep your eyes open. As has been stated in this thread, the rooms were made available waaaayyy too early and there will likely be a lot of people who have to cancel reservations. I couldn't book a room at the time they were made available as my card expired before the con, so I was out of luck until my new card came in November, now I'm stuck with hotels a mile away. On the other hand, I don't even know at this point if I will be attending for sure and I'll likely have a better idea later next year when (hopefully) more rooms open up.
@Dewback you guys should check out Central Texas Galactic Alliance on Facebook, the Austin TX SW fan group. I'm hoping to have our own little 'Caravan of Courage' for those wanting to drive out. (because I don't trust airlines with my costume/lightsabers, and I don't trust USPS/FedEx/UPS with shipping stuff back)
On topic: For those looking at staying thru Disney, I looked at the Disneyland webpage, apparently 2015 rates don't get posted until July. Cutting it a little close, but at the same time, I can set aside income tax return dough for the trip, earn a little savings on it, then get in on accommodations. Also, I believe Disneyland will accept Disney gift cards as payment (I know DisneyWorld does), and sometimes you can get discounted gift cards at Target. Save a little here, a little there, and there's more stuff to buy at the show (or more SW pins at Disney!)
