    Hi everybody. I'm brand new to the forum and I was luck enough to find you guys.

    I've never been to a Celebration event before and so when I found out that they're doing one in Anaheim in 2015, I was super excited because that's not too far a drive for me. In any case, I have a question about the tickets.

    I know it says that they're going on sale on Aug 7th but can anybody shed some light on the ticket purchase process? When you to to the link, it just shows a countdown clock. Will ticket prices and options be released maybe a few days before they actually go on sale? Do you have to register in anyway before you can actually buy the tickets? I ask this because Comic Con is set up that way or can you just go to the site the morning of Aug 7 and place your buy orders?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hey Halfmonkey!

    I ordered CVI tix online and it was easy. I have been trying hard to find out if the prices and packages will be posted prior to Aug 7 but no luck so far. The four day passes will probably be between $140-$160. My CVI pass was $135 for all days. I am going for VIP passes this time for all the perks
    so I really want to know the package price. My bet is that you will buy tix on the 7th and then later can upgrade to VIP when more details of the event are posted.

    If they hold to past Celebrations, VIP won't go on sale until further down the road. However, you must already have purchased a regular ticket to upgrade to VIP (stupid, IMO), plus previous VIP ticketholders get first dibs. Kinda like SDCC.
    Would kill to score a pair of VIP this time around.

    I know I would kill too! I am going to try. I know they sell better here than in CEII, cause I kept getting notices that VIP tix were still available almost before it started.

    VIP will sell out, no question. Very upset that they'd sell those just 10 days after announcing the con.

    I don't think the regular passes will sell out, not at least in a very long time. I'm not going to buy right now just because they get available.

    Tickets might sell out closer to, but I doubt they'd sell out any time in the next year.

    Just amazed that tickets and hotel room block will be available this far out! I think it is funny that I'll have to wait until next summer/fall to book airfare.

    I waited until the last minute to make decision on attending CVI and the hotel rooms were sold out. Not making that mistake this time!

    You got that right!

    Although, if they aren't collecting deposits until 30 days out, I may go ahead and book tomorrow.

    Has anyone purchased a VIP ticket for a previous Celebration? Would you say it was worth it? I'm trying to figure out whether to try and get one for Anaheim, or if I should just go with a normal ticket.

    It was worth it for CE2. I just wished they were selling them closer to the time for Anaheim, too soon after CE2 to invest in a VIP ticket.

    Man, I'm so annoyed. I cannot believe that. I was hitting refresh at 7 a.m. and even minutes before and yet I still didn't get a Jedi Master badge. I had it the last two times, so I'm definitely not happy about it. I like to be in the ultimate VIP class. I guess I'm happy enough with Jedi Knight, but no meet and greets is going to kill me because that's a huge part of what makes these so great. I think the Jedi Master badge is a better deal overall because it's just a more special experience.

    But, no, of course I should have figured that because it's Star Wars and all of our fans are just as insane as I am, they'd sell out in less than a minute for the Master badges. And by 7:05 I noticed they were already sold out of the Knight badges. At least I got one of those...

    Same here (although I am not so much annoyed as I am please I got a Jedi Knight - its the seating in the main hall and private area that makes it for me) - so much for Essen being my only Star Wars Celebration!

    btw TheDarkKing - if I had realised it was you I would have introduced myself properly!

    It looks like I'll be going to my first SWC in 2015. [face_dancing] I can't wait. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of the VIP packages. I wouldn't have spent $900 on it even if I had the chance but I would have spent $450. Unfortunately, fate was not on my side but I did purchase the 4 day passes. The crappy thing is I used my computer to access the site to purchase the tickets and nothing was happening. I know it's a virtual queue but I was waiting for like 20 minutes and so I figured I'd try on my cell phone in case my computer was acting up. Of course, my cell phone was able to access the site in about 5 minutes after I went into the queue on my cell phone. Go figure. Even after I finished the transaction, my computer still showed that I was in the queue. Oh well. I got the 4 day passes and so that's all that matters.

    I won't be bringing the wife and kids but we should be renewing our annual passes to DLR so hopefully, there will be some tie-ins with the park. [face_dunno]

    Disappointed, I had VIP for the last two Celebrations in Orlando. This morning I was logged in immediately go into the queue and nothing happened. I left the queue open and then tried to login again in a new browser and I got right in. Unfortunately all VIPs were sold out by then...

    Not sure what happened but nothing I can do now. Let me know if someone wants to sell their VIP pass, I will take it.

    No luck on the VIP tickets for me either. I specifically brought my laptop on vacation just to try and get em. Oh well.

    I missed out on VIP too. Was through the queue by 10:02 and they were already sold out.

    I got VIP Jedi Knight at 10:01, Master was already sold out when I got through.

    There's a new nebulous benefit for Jedi Masters this year:
    Be interesting to see if this amounts to anything or not.

    It took me until 7:35 to get through that queue. Crazy.

    I managed to get Jedi Knight at 10:02 ET. This'll be my sixth Celebration, and first one VIP. Wondering if I should still volunteer since I scored the VIP perk.
