Good news for those Americans still waiting on their passports:

</font><blockquote><font class="small">Quote:</font>
US citizens flying to or from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Bermuda will no longer need a passport as long as they prove they have applied for one.

Officials said the "record-breaking demand" at passport offices had led to excessive delays of up to three months.

In a statement on its website, the State Department said US travellers would be able to enter and leave by air upon presentation of a government-issued photo ID, such as a driving licence, and official proof of application for a passport.

"The federal government is making this accommodation for air travel due to longer than expected processing times for passport applications in the face of record-breaking demand," it said.

You still need a passport to get into the UK, but with less people applying for a passport to get to Mexico, Costa Rica and Canada the delay will lessen.

Re: Celebration Europe Official Countdown!

Mine took exactly 12 weeks to arrive. I was pleased to find mine waiting when I returned from C4. I'm all set for CE now. Now if we could only come up with a game plan for the rest of the stay. LOL

See you guys soon!

We have a Hotel guide thread already, and I don't know what you've heard about London hoteliers but they accept everyone so I don't think there is a need to have your own thread.

But it you want to let people know where you'll be staying and when you'll be arriving try the Who's Attending thread where everyone can post.

I'll be down there from about 2.30-3.00pm
FYI, this email from FP customer services was posted in the CE Exclusives thread:

The Commander Bly bust will be available from our store from 5pm on the day of the event. At present there is no limit on how many a customer may buy, but I expect this to be changed on the day or before to a limit of one or two per customer.

We are hoping that we will not have sold out by the end of the event at our store and will be able to take some to the Celebration IV convention. We cannot be certain of this and therefor cannot guarantee there will be stock available to buy at the convention - though it is more than likely that there will be. If there are any remaining after Celebration IV these will be made available through our website.

Re: Celebration Europe Official Countdown!

Thanks for the info.
I thought of standing at the shop before opening time. Now I'll have to reorganize my day in order to be there by 5PM...


EDIT: By "Celebration IV" I guess they meant Celebration Europe, right?

Re: Celebration Europe Official Countdown!

Just courious, as I don't know my way around London that well. How far is the FP shop from the convention as I am staying at a hotel very near to the Excel centre. Apologises if this is in the wrong thread just that I spotted the previous posts so thought I would ask the question.
Many thanks

It's about a 30 minute Tube Journey.

Get off at Leicester Square and head up Charing Cross Road until you get to the junction with Spamalot & the Pizza Hut on the corner. It's about a 2 minute walk from there.

Re: Celebration Europe Official Countdown!

Dare I say this but I will have to. I have been a loyal fan since I first saw SW in 77. I have maintained a fanaticism about the films that my wife eventually learned to put up with and when I saw this was happening I got my tickets and booked accommodation. However the promotion and lack of info has done NOTHING for me. I appreciate that most are exited about this but with the lack of feedback, next to no decent guests I am really not that phased about going. Of course I will, but the promoters have done nothing to encourage me. My son is coming with me and I hope that the money I have paid will give him a decent time as it's a 10 hr journey from here but I had to say my piece. Whinge over!

I hope that till the beginnig of Celebration the terrorists which stand for auto-car bombs scare,will be all catch. We all will be travel through the London centre and it would terrible if the history of bombs atacks could repeat itself. I think that You all thinking about that like me. I'm sorry for my concern and not a jouful thoughts 12 days before the event.
