^ I agree -

I know this thing won't sell out within first day of tix going on sale, especially when it's so far out, but I'm so paronoid I'll be buying them as soon as they go on sale.

Wonder if they will be booking the hotels through on peak & when that will go up?

Didn't C3 sell out? I want to say they weren't able to sell anymore Saturday tickets.

Is it me? Or, is this officially called "Star Wars Celebration Anaheim"? And not being called "Star Wars Celebration VII"? I just got an e-mail from them and nowhere do I recall it being referred to as "VII" instead of "Anaheim". Am I just crazy?

Not just you I noticed this too. My best guess is that perhaps this is the permanent location for Celebration now so they are keeping 'Anaheim' instead of numbering them.

I'll be there. I've decided to attend this one.
Fingers crossed for an Episode VII trailer world premiere at CVII.
I'll see you all there! :)

This will be my first SW convention. What can I expect there for merchandise? Is it just new stuff or will there be all kinds of things from throughout the years? If so, are they inflated ebay prices? Do local sellers usually setup booths or is it more professional than that? Just curious if I should anticipate picking up any figures from waves of the past.

Also, I see that this last one was around €60 EUR for adults. At 1.3 translation rate, does it seem reasonable that this one will near $80 USD? Is it common over here to also have kids 6 and under free with paid adult ticket? Thanks.

Since this is your first convention, there is so much to see and do make sure you have a plan of attack before you get there. Make sure to keep looking at the boards as well for popular events that you may have to line up for hours in advance. As far as merchandise is concerned there is an official SW store with new merch with the CVII logo on it and such. They have anything from piggy banks to pins and t shirts, posters, beach towels, even some wacky stuff like cologne and fake mustaches. Most of this stuff you can get on ebay after the con for much much less so don't feel like you have to break the bank buying this exclusive stuff because odds are there will be people facing buyers remorse once they remember they still need to pay their mortgage and car payment that month. Yes there will also be tons and tons of dealers there with anything from Vintage to Modern stuff. It's all really up to you how much you are willing to spend. There are great deals to be had but also of course people trying to take advantage of dad and little Timmy who needs a birthday gift. So again, go with a plan of attack of stuff you are looking for and the max price you are willing to pay. It's wise to check more than 1 booth as well because odds are someone else will have what you are looking for and you can make a better deal. Of course bring your phone as well so you can check current prices on ebay.

Also, I see that this last one was around €60 EUR for adults. At 1.3 translation rate, does it seem reasonable that this one will near $80 USD? Is it common over here to also have kids 6 and under free with paid adult ticket? Thanks.
I believe CVI was around $130 for 4 days, CV was $120 for 4 days so expect CVII to be around the $130-150 price range for 4 days. To put it in perspective Disney's bi-annual convention is $136-166 for 3 days so they could push the price up even further if they wanted to. I expect it to be around $140 for a 4 day pass.

Doubt it, I think it's in Anaheim this time b/c they've hit Orlando with the last two, plus it's a movie year, so closer for the stars to get to

Having said that I could see during all 3 movies having it be Anaheim, but I would think they'll rotate between Orlando & Anaheim going forward

Also, Disney's annual event is always in Anaheim, down the road if they incorporate Star Wars to be a huge part of that, why would you have one event in Anaheim in April & one in August every other year. On those years it would be almost like competing with yourself

Does anybody know if the hotels in the area let you book this far in advance? Also, any Cali peeps that can recommend a decent hotel in the area? Doesn't have to be fancy, but don't wanna stay in a suck-hole either. It's been over 10 years since I went to Disney, and I can't remember where we stayed then...

Unless they change the venue for Disney Expo 2015, both events will be held in the same calendar year in Anaheim. The venues could be different for future events thereafter.

Most hotels don't book even a year in advance. I pulled up where we stayed in Anaheim back in March and you could only book into June of 2014. So it will be a while before you can book a room.

Definitely, but I guess the question is will we be able to book through On Peak earlier OR is it every person for themselves

And more importantly, which hotel will be the central hub (ala Rosen for CV & CVI)
