Booked my hotel off site. Staying close to the Midway airport & can Uber or train it in. $800 Canadian for 7 nights, cheaper than onPeak hotel blocks. Plus I get free breakfast!

I grew up around Midway.  Hopefully you're South of the airport and not too far North.  From what I remember you didn't want to go much past 35th street...

Staying at the Quality Inn Midway just south of the airport so I should be fine. They have shuttle service to the airport & back so hopefully can use that. Transport to the Con looks good via train/bus/uber. Flights look good going to Midway from here with 1 stop in Minneapolis. Having my friend come down again helps splitting the costs.

I bought my 5 day as well.  Just like IamSith, not sure that I'll go down each day (I'm reasonably "local") but  I'm looking forward to attending another Celebration even if my collecting habits have completely changed.

I just got suckered in  to paying for my 5 Day Passes by people quoting today's Star Wars Show. The Show claims the 5 Day passes are almost gone.

They’re claiming 5 days are almost sold out.  I’ll believe it when I see it but that was word on the Star Wars show today.

SW Celebration twitter account just said "5-Day tickets are now 90% sold out".

I'm cheap so I'll be waiting for November to figure out if I'm going or not. :P

Sorry just ran in and posted didn’t catch that Brian already got that. 

I’m super cheap and backed out way way early haha.

I thought this show wouldn’t sell out as fast as the last one but it’s beating it by a good bit I guess?  Maybe it is the location being so central.  But man the cost of hotels is off the charts so I dunno.

Despite the whole FOMO feeling I'm getting about this upcoming Celebration, life is getting in the way.  I like Chicago, and I would love to attend, but it's just not in the cards this time around.

To whomever goes?  I went to Celebrations 2, 3 and 4.  If you haven't gone before, it can be an amazing experience.  Enjoy!

Got my 5 day passes & for my friend. Hotel, flight & passes. Everything is a done deal & good to go. Did not think 5 days passes would almost sell out this fast!

Wow, I'm surprised these sold out so quickly.  Glad I jumped and got one.

So are we all going to crash at Rob’s?

Uhh....  about that...

Being serious though, I'm considering going for one day, that day was going to be Saturday, but it looks like those are gone.  So now I'm thinking about going just on Sunday.

If anyone wants to do a JD meet up afterwards on Friday or Saturday, I'd be down for that. 

EDIT:  I bought a ticket for Sunday... why not...
