I didn't get in to purchase the VIP tickets, so I was waiting to see what the hotel situation looked like.  This is not favorable for me, so I think I am going to pass. Thanks for the updates.

They botched things opening the hotel queue before the announced time.  If you had gone in before 2 and happened to enter at the right time, your little man would have gotten you in to buy hotels when they went live at 2.  If you went into the queue at 2, there were already lots of people ahead of you.

Snagged a 2 Double Bed room at the Mariott Marquis for the week.

I wonder if I could find a roommate here at FoCC, since I'm currently running Solo.  :D

Saw on Rebelscum they opened more rooms up.  For awhile they were down to three. Loews Chicago only hotel with full dates at the moment.

Didn't get a chance to be here when the sale went live, but I somehow scored VIP passes on my phone while at work. I hope everyone was able to score what they wanted!

Now to find a hotel room...

I could potentially be after a roommate.

Thanks for the idea... but I have decided to try for NYCC instead. :)

I am a little suprised that the 5-day tickets have already sold out.  But with people pointing out the prices of single days, if you added them up it made sense to go ahead and get the 5-day even if you didn't plan on going to all 5 days.

I was already on the fence on going based on expenses.

Think I'll pass on this year, but I'll keep my hotel booked in case something changes. :D

It is very surprising though, since everybody told me tickets were available for months after they were posted for previous Celebrations.

Tickets have been in the past available for months after.

I think it is a combo of things. Hype; Cheaper to buy 5-Day instead of even 3-Day; Reduction in the number of 5-Day tickets (speculation on my part.

I guess most people don't hate Star Wars as much as the small minority says they do after all.
