With the big announcement that Celebration 2019 will be in Chicago from April 11-15th, who is planning to take the trip!

While I'm very surprised that it wasn't California, this is awesome because it's a drivable distance which makes transporting costumes and props so much easier.

I thought I could start a thread for it here as people begin to plan for buying tickets and book hotels. I'm very excited!! Smile

At this point, I'm considering making the 12-13hr drive from home.
Hotel is already booked.

It's definitely much better than flying, at least in my opinion. There's no stress about TSA and the terminal crew breaking any of your things. The drive is not that bad if you split it up with others. Worth it!

Is it April yet??? Hahaha Razz

I have a hotel booked from Thursday thru Monday. Can't drive because of I am supposed to be teaching those days. I will be looking to rent space in a car/truck heading to celebration for my costumes. I would never trust TSA with them.

That's definitely on my radar. We rented a large SUV last year for Orlando and it was great.

I have a decent sized car that'll get Ashley and I there, but if we end up with a 3rd or 4th, we'll definitely need something bigger.

Thanks for the info! I started looking at rental vans and they've been pretty pricey.

I got the $400 price locked in from Enterprise for a rental of 7 days.
fitting 4 to 7 people, splitting the cost is better than Airfare round trip.

5 day passes are 90% sold already, so if you're hesitant you might want to decide sooner or later.

So, will there be a caravan for those wanting to do the drive? I am starting to warm up to that idea!

Mike and I are definitely taking the drive. We thought renting some kind of van to store costume bins would be the best bet, and if anyone is flying, we could store their gear too so that there's no worry about checking it in on a plane.
