No thanks.

***** #1.   :P

I know of others so speak up & post if you can go or not. 

As for myself, my flight is free (Air Miles) so all I need money for the room & spending money. Wait! I have that already.   :-*

Probably not...   :-\  If it's not reasonable driving distance I'm not likely to attend.  I probably can't justify the airfare and stuff.  I've got to look into flight options first, but I'm not hopeful at this point.  Not my personal favorite option...  I've been to Orlando and besides Disney World (which is sort of self-contained) I just didn't care for it down there.

Two big thumbs up from me. This will be a nice easy one hour drive over to Orlando that Wednesday afternoon to prepare for the show.

I would love to but it's not going to happen for me.  Unless I win the lottery.  Of course every celebrity will go to this one since it is in sunny Orlando.

Wish I could go...I used to live in Orlando when I went to school at UCF, but I doubt I'll be able to.

I missed out on a trip to Vegas this year and my wife told me that I could end up going to this as a consolation prize...  Now it's a matter of whether or not I have to bring my sons with me or not.  It would be nice to go to this and not have to worry about them as well, but at the same time I really want them to experience this.  Looks like I have one more week to decide before I figure out whether I'm buying 2 kids 4-day passes to go along with mine...

Boy, August in Orlando is going to make it really difficult to be in full Darth Maul tatooine attire.  However, I'm sure it's still cooler than they dealt with during filming.  Anyone know how to get a Force FX lightsaber through security at the airport?!

Yeah, Orlando heat in August may be a little tough.  But with Disney World being down the road (I've been Google Mapping), it would add a lot for my little ones to do.  This would be a fun chance to introduce my kids to the SW fandom experience.  ;)

Holy ****balls.  I just looked into flights from Kelowna (western Canada) to Orlando and round trip for our family of 4 is over $4500.  :-[  Kinda sucks when you're trying to fly from one corner of the continent to the other.  I guess I'll be watching for seat sales.
