Not sure WTF the site is doing with hotels thus far. This banner was in my email today from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim & is not showing on the site as with the countdown timer for tickets.  ::)



With past Celebrations in Orlando, the Rosen Centre was the host hotel. 2 major hotels are close by the Convention Center, the Marriott & the Hilton. Guessing the Hilton will be the host hotel as a tad closer. Still a few other hotels close by those those that are on the budget & no doubt will cram members in the rooms to keep the costs down.

Overhead view of the Convention area. Disneyland just across the street top.



A couple online brochure grabs of hotels in the area. Not the best & will add a link & list of hotels close by.

Disneyland Hotel - 990 Rooms

Link above has list of hotels & odd prices for rooms to get an idea. Hopefully when the hotel booking come online for the Con, they offer some kind of discount.

For those that have been to Anaheim, any information for members on the better places to stay at would be great.  :)

The countdown timer has been removed from the site.

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim

Ticket info is up...  $140 for an adult all pass for the whole show.  That seems in line with past shows, no?  I expected a significant bump honestly.  Still not gonna go...  Flight from Pittsburgh to Anaheim would kick me in the dingy.

No official date for Ep VII thus far. Avengers II has a release date of May 1st & rumors for Ep VII are May 29th but who knows. Few big flicks May/June so they would want to avoid a release crossover for making the uber bucks!

I'll get it, down the road. Medicom is really beating a dead horse being on hiatus with Kub's.  :-\

Also received this carded set & another copyright date placement. Think this is beyond beating a dead horse. Boo Medicom!

Not sure if we have any JDers in Calgary, but I sure hope they've grabbed their scuba gear and/or fled for the high ground or their boats.   :-\

Was reading a report that the first ten rows are underwater at the Saddledome, the Calgary Flames dressing room is totally submerged and the water has effectively shorted out all the electronics in the building, including the jumbotron wiring.   :o

Apparently the Jumbotron was on the floor surface for maintenance work and is completely done. 

Oddly we got some pretty heavy rains in Winnipeg the exact same day, to the point where the drain in our new Ikea store was shooting up water and they had about 8" of water on the main floor so they had to close down.  Obviously pales in comparison to Calgary though, that's just crazy.

****  just ****  <----------------------  Inside pics of Saddledome.   :-\

Wacky wild weather here lately, not like Calgary but we did have odd flooding back in the end of May from the storms that are looming around. Had to fight the waterfall & hail that was coming down the alley from 6-8 blocks away. Luckily no water in the house, was close tho... by a 1/2". Not fun!
