SW has a little bit of a sale right now for C2E2 dates. I was able to find a few flights to MDW for $102 from BWI.

I looked for SWCO and I was pleasantly surprised to find they had a few cheaper flights also

Thanks for posting this.  :)

I just booked my flight to Star Wars Celebration, and it was only $284 Roundtrip.

Mine was $274 but I had to take a 6am flight :(  Otherwise it was going to be $405

a 6 am flight will help you adjust to the time change. ;)

You're welcome!

In typical fashion, all the cheaper flights are of course super early or late. But glad to help!

Nada! Maybe they will add July just before Christmas, as they did in 2014.

Another reason to fly Southwest: United will be charging for overhead bin space.

Thanks for the 411. The up charging is getting out of hand. No United for me.
