    I agree. My main goal of SWCO was to have a pic with Carrie and Mark. Now I guess it's only going to be Mark, but just to meet him will be worth the entire cost of Celebration!

    I never really understood the appeal of the Funkos, but those are awesome.

    The Rey is entirely too cute and ,,,, holy crap, Garindan!!!!!

    I'm happy that I don't collect them, they do look awesome.

    I paid my hotel today, I didn't book through onpeak since they didn't have rooms at the Rosen when I wanted to stay there. Now I have paid the hotel, the flight and the tickets. I have my ESTA, so the only thing left to do is book my train tickets to get to and from the airport. (Seriously the worst part about long travel is that I also have a 3 hour train journey to the airport).

    I'd get that Fett if I saw it at retail. I'd pass on the others though.

    They will all turn up at GameStop or at other retailers. The only difference these will have some sort of sticker on them. Same thing happened last time.

    It's possible not all will be shared. At SDCC and NYCC not all were shared.

    Looks like they are using Chapin as the main stage which holds 2,643. After VIP'S and medical badges, that probably leaves a little over 2,000 seats for the main panels.

    It's going to be a nightmare. I'm ready to sit in my foldable chair overnight, outside if I must, if that is what it takes. However I will not be happy if that still didn't guarantee a spot. I don't even care about the schedule anymore (though with the floor plan out, i'm expecting it any day), I just want queue rules!

    Come on Star Wars show, don't let me down!

    Assuming they stick with Chapin for the main presentations. If you notice, they've expanded their use of the Valencia Theater from just Hall A in the past to Halls A+B+C (with D reserved for the queue), which would be a total capacity of 3789. Perhaps they'll use Valencia for the big ones this year?

    Yeah, I don't know. They've always referred to the main stage as the Celebration Stage. If Valencia is bigger and that's where the main panels are, I don't know why they didn't call that one the Celebration Stage. We will see.

    Another thing of note is no mention of wristband queues, only "morning queue".

    Hopefully that means the big panels start the day.

    We will just have to see. I'm ready to wait all night. I've been sitting in my camping chair all week to get used to it. Plus I wanted to make sure it held my big butt.

    Well not practicing but I set it up in the living room and have been watching TV in it from time to time. My son actually loves it. He said it's super comfy.

    I'm so excited about the overnight policy. Already discussed it with my friend who I'm meeting up with in Orlando, we will be there at 8 both nights. On Thursday we have orientation at 6:45pm for Rancho Obi-Wan volunteering so we plan on heading back to the hotel for a quick shower and changing out supplies in our backpacks before that so after our orientation we can either go eat nearby or loiter around till 8

    I have never waited in line more than 4 hours or so but I figured it would be a nice thing to check off my Star Wars list lol
