Celebration IV: Flights & Hotel. Where Are You Staying?
« on: January 5, 2007, 04:43 PM »
As we get closer to Celebration IV, I thought it would be good to have a list of people that have booked their flights & the hotels they are staying at.  :)

For myself, I will be staying at the Holiday Inn across from the convention centre.  ;D

As for my flight, I just booked & will be arriving on May 23rd at 11:00am & returning on May 29th morning flight.

Gotta love the Air Miles, sort of a free flight & I only had to pay the taxes & insurance. I was a little worried that I would be taking a milk run via Calgary or Vancouver which would have been a 7 1/2hr flight route but I lucked out & got a direct flight of 3 1/2hrs.  8)

Also note for us Canuckleheads, starting January 23, 2007, an American initiative will require travellers to the United States by air to carry a valid passport.

So when do you arrive & leave & what hotel are you saying at?  :)

I'm staying at the Wilshire.  I arrive on Tuesday (22nd) and leave Sunday (27th).  I plan on going to Disneyland on Wednesday, so I hope it's nice.  If not, I guess I could spend the day in a shopping mall  ;).

I haven't booked my flight yet since I'm waiting for a seat sale that often comes up with our local airline, WestJet.  But I'm planning to arrive on Wed the 23rd and leave Tue the 29th.

I'd better check my passport, they're good for five years, right?

Yes, five years from date of issue. 

No place to stay, no flight booked.  Still not even sure I'll make it :-\

I'm staying at the Ramada Inn 1.4 miles away from the Convention Center.  Need to visit the area one of these days to see what the area looks like.  Glad I don't have to get a flight for this one.

Yeah, don't worry Brent, we got you covered for a hotel room.  I know you have a lot going on that weekend, but it'd be great to see you there, even for a quickie.  Er, quick visit.  :P  Beer's on me.  :D

Holy crap! 2 different flights from 2 cities & only 12 mins. apart for arrival. Stick around Ryan & maybe we all can cab it to the hotels.  ;)  ;D

Yep, a big old hook up it will be. The Canucklehead invasion will begun!  ;D

I'll be at the Wilshire Grand as well. I'm still looking for a roommate or two if anyone is interested.

As for my flight, I'm still not sure yet. I need to figure out if I'm flying or driving still.

Beth -- are you looking for a roomie by chance? 

Party at the Holiday Inn!  Dale and I are crashing there with 3 other Canucks, it could get ugly.  :P

Talk about getting ugly -- we could give those Canucks a run for their money :-*
