Thread: Star Wars Celebration 2019

  1. #11
    After I read the posts concerning the location of the next Celebration, I contacted Reed Exhibitions (today) concerning C9. I talked to a live person--and my focus was when and where the next Celebration was to be held. I was told that the Celebration is on their calendar for 2019--IN ORLANDO.

    I asked several times (for confirmation, of course) and (of course) I mentioned that the last convention was in Orlando as well. I thought that --maybe--with the opening of Star Wars World in Anaheim that it would be there--at or around the same time.

    Here's the number I called: 203-840-4800. This is a direct number to Reed Exhibitions. (Of course, you'll get the typical Star Wars Celebration recording...don't despair--just hold out for a live human to talk to.)

    I’m good in either location. One thing I really liked about Anaheim is the food trucks that were parked outside the convention center. That provided much better eating options than the convention center can provide and better variety.

    Okay just called the number provided & the guy did confirm it is scheduled to take place in ORLANDO. However he couldn't (or wouldn't) tell me when exactly next year or when an official announcement will be.
    I am hesitant to put 100% faith into this as of yet. There's been no official announcement & I'm betting that will take precedence over any info they may have right now.

    After Celebration 8 I am still out. I have been to 4 of them already. The one in Indy back in 2002, C5, C6, and C8. I am celebrationed out.

    The crowds at the last two were awful, but I mainly go to hang out with my friends from all over the country. If I didn't have them, I probably wouldn't attend due to how crowded they are getting.

    Am I right in saying that the last convention in Orlando was Celebration 8...or was it 9? It seems that they have ceased numbering the conventions. If I am able to attend the Convention next year, I will make a pin listing the number of the Celebration I will be attending. (And yes...the lines at the last two Celebrations were TERRIBLE!) I spent three and a half hours in the Celebration Store line on Sunday trying to find (at least) a convention mug--only to find that the mugs were about all that they had left!

    I also found out (from some VIP badge holders) the secret to getting a VIP badge. You have to network with other friends and family who are also getting VIP badges; being online at the same time, exactly when the VIP tickets are being offered. In other words, a group of people went online to buy tickets for one or two people.

    As a Celebration veteran (I've now been to six of them), the last event soured me a bit on the whole experience. Between poor line management (don't get me started on the autograph area), unknowledgeable staff, suffocating crowds and a broken VIP & "disabled line" system, and a STILL screwed up Celebration Store experience, it's getting a bit out of hand.

    And to top it all off, as someone else mentioned, it was scheduled over a major holiday weekend!

    I'm optimistic about future events, but knowing what happened before has really put a damper on my expectations moving forward.

    Yeah, that's kind of the reason why I am thinking of skipping C9. There were some Sigs I wanted but the ones I wanted were sold out. Official Pix for C5 and 6 did a great job with the autograph area Topps last year not so much.
