Flights from Tokyo not yet reserved, but I have 4 Day tickets and a reservation at Days Inn Orlando Convention Center/International Drive from April 12-17th for myself and my girlfriend (not yet a full member, but coming to practice. Need to upgrade some costume bits before submitting).
Will likely be going to Universal/Disney/Kennedy Space Center, etc, but not sure if that will be before or after Celebration.

I know there are a bunch of people from Jet City going, but I think most of us are scattered hotel wise. Tim and I will be at the Days Inn from Thursday until Monday.

Empire Temple (NY) - quite a few of us have passes, but we haven't solidified travel plans yet. I'm currently planning on arriving at some point on Wednesday, and leaving the following Thursday or Friday. Always assuming that I manage to put together the funds as planned, and that my family doesn't revolt over Mommy's solo vacation

Hope to go for 4 days, but i still have to buy the tickets for the celebration itself and book my flight. Traveling to Florida from Italy isn't quite cheap, and since i'm on a really tight budget now i think i will wait until january.

I just made the money this weekend, so as soon as I get my check, I'm buying my ticket. I think I have a timeshare for that week. I would like to hit up Disney, Universal, and Titanic.

I have a room with a local 501st member planned, but I would like to go to disneyworld before hand. Does anyone have spots before thursday open, like starting on monday? I would like to roomshare, I can help you guys bring the price down if you got a extra sofa bed.
Other then that I need to save money on airfair.
Update: Wed-Sunday I will be staying with a local 501st friend at the Extended Stay on Orlando Blvd. Monday-Wed: I will staying at local 501st rental home and going with them to Disney World for two days. I have celebration Orlando tickets I bought from a local legion member. I will be getting tickets for Disney World from a work discount.

Greetings, I've got my Celebration tickets and my plane tickets. I just need to find a place stay. My name is Greg, I cosplay as Darth Malak, and I'm from the Utah Ruusan Temple. If anyone needs a roomshare to bring down the cost I'd be willing to take a sofa or floor np.

Scott Lind SG-104 I'm bunking with some friends in one of the hotels connected to the con center and I'm driving down a few days before, hopefully with some additional squadmates. I refuse to let TSA anywhere near my saber and run the risk of having it permanently confiscated.

I plan on going but I am not sure what all costumes I am bringing so far as I have limited space in the car. But I may be able to cram my Jedi in there some place.
