Dragon Con 2019: August 29-September 2 - Atlanta, GA
« on: September 05, 2018, 05:32:31 AM »
Starting next year’s thread. Memberships (aka badges) are at their lowest price now. I will get the calendar links up later.

Hotel alert (very last minute, I apologize) Per the Dragon*Con Hotel Connection FB page (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login):

2019 HOST HOTEL AVAILABILITY UPDATE!!!

The Westin goes on sale in 40 minutes!! (9 am Wednesday September 5th). Call 1-800-937-8461 to book. There is NO online booking at this time, and the local number cannot book in the DC rate block.

They will take one night's deposit at booking. Expect this to be around $300, including taxes. Once someone gets an exact amount, please tell us so we can update this post.

Good luck!!

Note that they require a four night stay. (eta: 2 night deposit required, not one as quoted above)

Update:

I called for some information and the double queen bed rooms are sold out. The rate is $249 per night with 16.9% tax and a $5 per day hotel fee... and they take TWO night's deposit at booking, not one. No penalties if you cancel the reservation by August 1, 2019.

Thanks for the input. I updated the post above. Apparently there were glitches in the process this morning for those trying for the Westin.

Marriott went live this morning! The website sucked but I was able to book a room with two doubles via phone (which was way easier than I expected). Anyways, I can officially say that I'm going to my very first DragonCon!

Thanks, I'm definitely looking forward to it! I've seen so many videos on Youtube and it looks like the Marriott is the place to be :)

Is anyone going? Let's meet up!

Does anyone have a legacy voucher at the Hilton they would like to give up? I'm your girl!

Cosplays? Too many to name!

Forum Housekeeping~merged this topic with the existing one.

And, I am going! **Raises hand**
No Hilton legacy here, and I am not giving up my Hyatt legacy ;)
I know that any legacy is a nice thing to have, It's one of the reasons we keep going. We got super lucky when we got ours. Good luck!

I did do dinner with some forum members last year, and it was a blast. Closer to Con, maybe we can make something happen. I love Dragon Con!

Alright just officially booked my flights for DragonCon! It's my first time going and it will also be my first time going solo! Not gonna lie I'm sort of nervous since I've never "technically" went solo for a con (I usually have at least someone staying with me at the hotel) so if anyone wants to hang, let me know!

I went solo to my first DragonCon as well and ended up having a blast! Your nervousness will go away quickly when you get there and you will have a great time!

This is actually one of my favorite conventions to go to. I’ve been there twice by myself. I keep trying to get my husband to go. This years not going to be the year because we have other stuff going on but maybe next year. :)

Does anyone with Hilton or Hyatt legacy happen to have a specific DCon code on their confirmation email? If so, can you private message me?

So many great guests this year. And so many panels. I am only half way through the schedule, and my schedule is already jam-packed!

Karl Urban and Jack Quaid! Can't wait for The Boys panel.

This is the guest announcement by date:

ashevansart Headed to see us at DragonCon? We have MOVED to the 2nd floor of the Americas Mart right towards the front!! We are booth #2224 and will be there all weekend. I have a VERY small number of zip cases and mirrors so if you want them see us EARLY. We have free stuff with purchase etc. and that runs out fast. See you soon!!

One of my highlights so far was that we got to see the Batman and Bill documentary with a Q&A with Athena Finger afterwards. The film was wonderful and eye-opening.
