Did they announce (or drop any clues) where the next one will be?

For the Felicity Jones photo-op, the folks waiting in line were told that she doesn't like to be touched. So no touching at all. Get ready for some awkward photos! Anyone on here doing this, have fun.

Sarah Michelle Gellar was the same way.  And she didn't really know what to do with the arm closest to you, so yeah, awkward photos.

And I think a lot of the problems were because they weren't anticipating so many people lining up and camping out overnight -- resulting in not enough security gates and no plan for what to do with people once they got their wristbands in the morning.  And Topps definitely oversold photos and autographs.  I thought it was funny that the actual photo company was Epix who does all of the other ReedPop cons and who you normally order from directly.  But I had a lot of fun, and got to see everything I wanted.  Only issue I had was not getting my Ian McDiarmid autographs because his late Saturday signing slot was canceled and I was flying back Sunday morning.  But since I had extra time, i got to do shopping, and got the Hasbro Luke figure, the Mattell Biggs car, and the Hallmark exclusives all after 4:30 on Saturday without waiting in any lines.

Anaheim in 2019?  Maybe?

Selfish proximity of travel distance aside, I would think it should be the leading candidate with Disneyland's Star Wars Land set to open in 2019 and although WDW is getting it as well, generally the Celebrations have rotated locations.   Plus Anaheim has that great arena in its favor.   

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's experiences and reports from their Orlando Celebration experience.

i'm inclined to think the convention folks may not have remembered what the Star Wars Fandome is like & was like- "camping overnight? folks won't do that" I'm sure Reedpop told them but if the on the ground team didn't believe them-- the lines were messed up

ReedPop sent an email to badge purchasers with the survey for SW Celebration feedback, yesterday.

Not sure how long it lasts, but the sweepstakes is limited to 7 days, if you do the online survey.

The postcard entry method gives more time for entry, terms at  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login .
