Best case scenario for me is to arrive on Friday night :-\

That's better than not going at all.
I remember my dream now.

Ding!!!  Just got my four/five day pass and will be refreshing my email page every two minutes on Thursday.

 

And you're not allowed to leave early, either >:(

I'm not!!  I'll be flying solo to this puppy and plan on having a great time with the JD crew.  So you better be going!!

I just dropped $112 bucks for my four/five day pass.

I've got a quick question about hotels... So when I book a reservation on Thursday do I have to pay for the hotel on Thursday or do I wait until I actually stay there? Stupid question I know, but I've never actually booked a hotel myself before. I just want to know how much time I have to find roommates since the hotel costs will rape my wallet if I try and stay alone, discounted or not.

It varies.  There are some that might force you to pay up-front to save a particular room rate, but usually most will only require a CC # in order to hold the room (and then you would pay upon check-out).

It might not hurt to check out a few LA area hotels on-line ahead to check to be sure that the payment/cancellation policy there that fits your needs...

I can't believe it, but I actually just ordered tickets myself.  I've been talking about it with my wife and she gave me the go ahead.  So I ordered tickets for me and my son (he'll be 8).  I really didn't think I was going to be there but it looks like now I will!!  I'm very excited.  However, it will probably only be Saturday/Sunday for me.  It took enough to convince my wife to let me go, I don't think she'll let me pull him out of school too early.

Boo yah!  I just ordered my 5 day pass - the first round of drinks are on me at the JD party!   :D

It looks like I'm going solo this time too, my wife decided that I may as well go without her so she doesn't "get in the way".   ;)

Just got my whole family registered. Can't wait! It's been a few years since I've been to a convention that's within a 45 minute drive from home.  ;D

I'm in.   :D

ETA:  And it looks like I might be in the market for a roommate(s) as it looks like the non-SoCal GH contingent is going to be mighty small this time around.

I'm planning to arrive Wednesday and stay until Saturday with a red-eye flight home Saturday night.  So, I'm only planning to book a room for three nights (Wed, Thurs, & Fri). 

I actually already have a reservation for Wednesday and Thursday, but all the rooms at this particular hotel were blocked for Friday night, so I'm going to try to snag that night tomorrow.

Wow- those hotels are further than I thought.  I am hoping to get a room at the Holiday Inn but I'll be surprised if I'll get through right at 1:00pm (EST).

If not there, I am going for the Sheraton or Wilshire.  It hurts my head to think I am going to be spending $1,000 on a hotel room  :-X.

I know... it's crazy... 5 nights in a hotel = $$$ I probably shouldn't spend... add to that the flight and CON fee....   I know my Girlfriend would rather we go to Italy (and probably spend the same too!)

So I have my 4day pass... but can't get to the hotel site from work... where's the love in that?  Just gotta hope there'll be some rooms left this evening!

Done.  That was easier than I had ever hoped it would be.

That's a relief.

BTW, I booked my room at the Wilshire Grand.  I was able to book Wednesday & Thursday nights last week for around $139/night tax included.  It cost me $179+ tax for Friday night.  So much for great convention rates.

Hey, I got in at the Wilshire too!!!  I had the Holiday Inn but it wouldn't accept May 22nd and once I backed up to change my date it was gone.  The Wilshire was my second choice, so I am relieved.  But I got stuck paying $179.00 a night.... :-X
