You can take them with a grain of salt if you wish, but I thought this may be pertinent information into helping to make your Celebration III experience as good as it can be, so I'm reposting it here in the Official thread "Details about programming, guests, activities, entertainment and exclusive merchandise at Celebration III will be released as they are confirmed closer to the convention date. As it did for Celebration II, starwars.com will post all the latest Celebration III information in the Community section of the site. The official Celebration III site will of course also have all the latest news. Online ordering for tickets and discounted hotel rooms is scheduled to begin later this summer." Make sure you order your badges early on (within the first month or two) as the people who ordered theirs later had problems getting them shipped to them as they ran out. Then they had to stand at the will call line and wait to get theirs opening day. DO NOT DO WILL CALL!!! You will be in an enormous line (a mile long) to just get in the facility. You will not want to wait in another line to get your badges & lanyard once you get inside. You will definitely want to go at least three days. There is so much to do & see, plus you will be spending most of the time standing in line (45 minutes- 1 hour minimum wait for most venues), so get a 3 or 4 day badge from the get go. You will be glad you did. The best advice I can give is to PLAN AHEAD (but don't be too stringent). Try to use Thursday as a day to prepare for Friday, Saturday & Sunday by getting any tickets for events on Thrusday. Be careful doing the tag team thing as if your friend is not there when they hand out the line tickets in order to figure out the line cut-off, your friends will be SOL. It sucks, but it prevents too many people from line jumping in line ahead of you and bumping the people towards the end of the line out. Anything that you really want to see do on Thursday like if you want to get something from the Celebration store like a CIII action figure. The store does NOT have an unlimited supply of goodies, so I recommend doing this on Thursday & early. I first went to the Celebration store & then got in line for concert tickets. You will definitely need to get your concert tickets on Thursday or Friday (the concert was Saturday night for C2). The concert is something that you do not want to miss. Also get your autograph tickets on Thursday or Friday too. The lines just get really long on Saturday & Sunday. This way you can just go up to the actor's line & get your autograph instead of standing in line to get your autograph tickets & then stand in line to get the autograph. So basically, you will be standing in line for tickets most of the day Thursday so that you can enjoy Friday Saturday & Sunday. Many of the venues are repeated on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. If that is the case, DO NOT DO THESE on Thursday. You will not get to see everything, so don't expect to. Pick a couple of things you want to see and just go with the flow. The lines get extremely long & require a lot of patience.
