Okay, for a guy that has done conventions for the last 11 years, but never this one, any tips? Cause it seems so hard to plan for. I watched the 2017 one for reference.

If I am correct, tickets went on sale May 2016. So you'd have to buy a ticket nearly a year in advance. Book a hotel and a flight as well.

Then they didn't start announcing the GOOD guests until like 6 weeks before the show. Gellar, Hayden, Felicity and other ROGUE guests, etc...

So if you get your tix a year early, have a room and flight all planned up and money saved....but then the guests stink, you're kind of screwed no???

I am planning on this one in small hopes that either Daisy Ridley or Emilia Clarke will be a guest, maybe the Mouse forces them to appear there.

I mean, this entire con seems like a crap shoot. Or am I wrong?

Wow it seems strange to skip 2018 when so much is going on with Star Wars right now. Never been to one but I enjoy following the live streams.

I had tickets for 2016 but wasn't able to travel to London. Will definitely try to go to the 2019 con.

Well, not really. Next year might be even bigger. You have Jon favreau's live action TV show, you have Rian Johnson's presumed new trilogy. Episode IX is be released in December 2019. Possibly other unannounced projects. Plus, if on time, Disneyland is set to open Galaxy's Edge (Star Wars Land) in the park around the same time. Being in Anaheim, that will drive ticket prices and foot traffic - which means food and merch sales. Not to mention D23 Expo is the same year.

Skipping a year was probably worth it for Disney, financially and timing.

Someone said it's best to save up $3,000-$5,000. Damn. I hope that includes plane, hotel, food.

I'd mainly go for the celebs, not the merch or other stuff.

Seriously, bring Emilia Clarke in....i can die happy.

I'm gonna buy a weekend pass, but if the guests are meh, likely try to sell it later and just buy a day pass.

Day passes didn't seem to sell out last year.

I have always wanted to go and had decided I would definitely try to go to the next one they had. I'm so ecstatic that it is going to be in my city this time so I don't even have to think about whether to go or not!

I'll get a weekend pass and go. About a year to save up and shop, so even if I'm not interested in the guests, I'll have things to do and buy at the convention.

Some of the Celebration peeps are so entitled. The ones mostly out west or in Florida.

If anyone is in the group on Facebook, there are a good portion of dopes just going on and on about how we will all be murdered in Chicago, or how the weather is so bad no con can happen(despite them happening every spring for the last 12 years I've done conventions), etc, etc...

Who knew Star Wars fans were such entitled brats?

On the topic of Chicago... I've been visiting it for the last 6 years annually to see a Blackhawks game and I have never felt unsafe. We walk more than 20km a day in the city sticking to mainly what I assume is the downtown core with walks ranging from E. Walton St down Michigan Ave to past Roosevelt Rd out by Solider Field and as far west as Canal St... we even walk down Madison out to the Unite Centre from Michigan Ave when the weather is nice. I have been to McCormick Place before so I don't know if things getting any dodger that south. I've been to countless "world class" cities all over the world and none of them have anything on Chicago as far as I'm concerned. Now I live just outside of Toronto and that is tops in my books, but that may just be my Canadian bias .

Seriously some of the people on Facebook seem to think you will be shot the second you step foot in the City. But there will be plenty of Chicago Star Wars fans to take their place.

I also like the people saying there isn't anything else to do like there is in Orlando.

Very tempted to do the 850 VIP ticket. If I have the chance, I will.

I heard that sells out in seconds. Only 300. Good luck.


I wonder if NO PANELS on Thursday and limited general tickets sold, will make the graph and ops lines better or worse.
