  1. I plan on cosplaying as a Vault 101 Dweller and my husband will be The Mysterious Stranger - our baby will be with us one day of the con and he will be cosplaying as a 10 month old Baby Nannerpus.
  2. Yup, that's what I was saying earlier -- the one buried in the main hotel is bigger, but more likely to have issues. The one in the in-between building is almost ideal, but until you and I touched base this week, I was under the impression it had been booked by someone else. Sound baffling is possible with sufficient pipe-and-drape.

  4. Part of the problem with negotiating things slower is that the hotels will continue to allow room reservations during our negotiations. This means that the number of rooms available for us to contract a lower rate for gets smaller. For example if we don't have nearby hotels like the Days Inn contracted and signed before we release the next Otakon's dates, it will likely end up sold out just as quickly, but now everyone is paying more. Good for the hotels, not so good for our members.
  5. Cheaper rate because a reservation can always be canceled unless you book someplace like the hotel website where they offer discounted packages for paying in advance. With the new system in place a reservation costs you nothing but your credit card number (must have an expiration date beyond the con) and the time to make it. My husband and I waited to long last year so missed out on reservations and I wish we hadn't - it was okay traveling from home but I had to get up a lot earlier than normal because of my pregnancy. The good thing about not staying in a hotel is we saved money on kenneli
  6. I couldn't edit to add the links, but these are the ones I will probably do, I usually buy my tickets in advance for White Marsh, and now that they put a Coldstone Creamery in right next door I'm all over it. Easpoint: Right up Eastern Avenue about 15 minutes http://www.fandango.com/regaleastpointmovi...dvs/theaterpage and White Marsh: Right up 95 about 15 minutes http://www.fandango.com/amcloewswhitemarsh...ete/theaterpage this is right near my house, but my husband hates the Drive-In Bengies: Right up Eastern Avenue about 30 minutes http://www.fandango.com/bengiesdri
  7. I didn't stay in a hotel for this year but last year (2007): Place I stayed: Sheraton (formerly Wyndham) Number of people in room: 2 Hotel Staff: Were great, they helped us out whenever we needed something. Walk to the con center: 5 minutes The Good: -The beds were comfy -They brought champagne to my room while I read Harry Potter book. -Brought me orange juice when I was sick, I got a cold on the second day and I was miserable. -Gave me good turn down service, cleaned the room daily with extra towels and soap. -TVs rocked. The Bad: -The walls are paper thin
  8. Couldn't edit my post. The harbor does have a movie theater... Landmark's Harbor East Cinema 645 President St., Baltimore, MD, USA - (410) 244-6636 http://www.landmarktheatres.com/market/Bal.../HarborEast.htm Hopefully HP will be there, lol - they don't offer online ticketing yet. They do however rent out the theater, I doubt they would rent it out on opening night though and I don't think they do it for new releases.
  9. Two...oh my god I didn't not realize that last night when I found out the movie release date was changed. Why, why must my two loves, Harry Potter midnight releases and Otakon always seem to conflict so in recent years. Thank god it's 12am Friday though because that means that as long as I drive to Otakon or the IMAX shows it, I can still go. I nearly had a heart attack again like when I found out about Book 7 interfering with Otakon last year. Well, it seems that my Thursday costume for next year has already been confirmed to be my Slytherin Quidditch uniform.
  10. The thing is guys it shows you reservations depending on how many people are in your room and what days you are staying. Try a multitude of different things to see if you can get different days, rates and hotels. Some hotels like Days Inn do not charge for extra people whereas some do, so the prices change depending on that variable. I got a room at Days Inn yesterday (2 people) and emailed the email on the front page of the PassKey site to cancel my previous registration at the Radisson and they emailed me today with confirmation that my registration at the Radisson was canceled.
  11. I'm going with my husband of course so he can carry my bags
  12. Just got my tickets too Didn't see it posted here but saw it on Kotaku. Last time I saw PLAY! was in Philly which is a nightmare for my husband and I to drive too, at least this is right around the corner, yay!
