Even though $120 is ridiculous, I bought tickets this morning. I didn't make it past "Ewok Encounter" before my wife started squealing with joy.

There had better be stinkin' ewoks.

After a short debate with myself over the high price of the event, I gave in and bought a ticket to the Disney event. I really enjoyed the Last Trip to Endor Party way back when, so I expect the same.

I wonder if Disney will supply shuttles buses at the convention center like they did for the last SW event. I'd rather not have to drive.

I don't think I want to spend another $130 plus transportation on the Disney event. Plus depending on the panel schedule that day, I'll probably be at Celebration until 7:00. I hope you guys that go have a blast. Give us a report on how it goes!

I want to do it but I just don't know. What would make this must attend is if they had a path to take guests near SW Land and get a peek at it from a distance. Also some exclusive merch would be nice. That price tag though!

Debating doing the Galactic Nights event, but need to wait until after get taxes back next month. I can realistically do only one special event, so it's either 501st Bash or Galactic Nights.

I think they will be special credentials you pick up at the event showing your able to stay after 7 PM. They do this for Disney After Hours event and will probably do it at this as well.

The Archive party was able to increase attendance size a bit after they sold out so fast, so you can still get tickets at this link: http://blog.theswca.com/p/celebration-orlando-2017-details-date.html

This is like the halloween party and christmas party. It's a separate ticketed event that you have to pay for no matter where you are staying.

Btw, for those of you going, anyone going to the Disney Parks after the convention? If so, where did you get your tickets?

I just wanted to point out the small print disclaimer in the above link so that people don't buy the "late entry" pass and think they can use it during Celebration.

All 1 Day After 3 PM tickets are blocked out for use during the following dates: April 9 - 16

Sucks about those blackout dates. Usually that week is blacked out because of Spring Break around those counties, but Spring Break is a couple weeks before that I believe. Even the 3 day Florida Residents ticket has this week blacked out. DISNEY!!!!

I know a few schools with spring break weeks that start first week of April, but I think the week leading up to Easter Sunday, which happens to include our belovéd Celebration, is the "official" Spring break.

Easter week is the second most expensive week at Disney for the entire year so i'm not surprised it's blacked out.

Does anyone else find it absurd that this Galactic Night costs more for 4 hours than a regular 1 day park ticket? The mouse can shove it. I will spend my money at the con.

Its Disney though. They've been doing it forever. Single day park ticket to Magic Kingdom is something like $112 now. It's still tempting to do the event to have the chance to maybe run into SW actors/VIPs. I'll prob skip it but it still tempting...

I believe you get entertainment value per hour than spending $450 for Felicity Jones photo and autograph that can last just over a minute.

Hi Jimmy--
No Pin will be shipped prior to Celebration but if you are wanting one and will be there, we will make arrangements to meet up with you. If it is after, figure standard shipping costs to be added so less than $1 within the US?

yea it crossed my mind. On top of it that, 17$ in tax, i pay for a fri tix to the convo which I'm planning on leaving at 3 to be at SWGN by 5, and I bought tickets for Hollywood Studios for Wed. i know the park will be packed wed and want a chance to ride the SW ride 4/5 times to see the different endings as well as see the rest of the park.
I have pretty high expectations for this event, I'm hoping the projections are stellar and that there are cool give aways for the scavenger hunt. It is Disney so...Too bad the ticket doesn't come with a meal and drink perk or something, but oh well. Id much rather spend my $ here than on an autograph.(I live in SF have Joe Montanas autograph, signed to me and it sits in a drawer for the past +30 years)
Its me and my son(23) going and we wanted to do something fri eve. Hanging out for a screening of SW after the conv, or the 501 Banquet just doesn't sound as appealing to us. Much rather go trip around here...
