Now all I need to do is wait for the room block to open.

Ok, so I have to wait for room block and registration.

Patience, patience. My bank account is still struggling from paying this round. Give it a little time to replenish itself before we swing another 3 nights at $180 a piece.

Officially added to my phone calendar, informing the group later today to make sure nothing schedules over this. XP

(Also--and I don't know if I'm allowed to ask this--animecons.com says the 2012 date is at the end of April. I know this is waaaay in advanced for asking, but is that an official date or no? Sorry for bothering. ^^;;)

As mentioned in one of the other threads floating around here (I forget which one it was in), yes the animecons dates for 2012 are accurate. Unfortunately other events got our preferred dates before us for 2012 so we'll be a bit earlier than usual.

Me and my friend said to each other "We are definitely going back next year so start saving!!!" Now I just need to pray and hope that that weekend is free for when I get my turn for vacation.

Wow. I might be in trouble trying to go to ACen 2011. My sister's wedding is supposed to be May 21. Is it bad that I'm hoping she can't get the venue she wants for that date so she has to push her wedding back a week?

I agree with you there. But i think there is enough time over the summer for a little replenishment.

Cant wait for the next one.

WOOT! I was planning for this before 2010 even came around >.<
I know that most of my roommates are returning
I know what I'm wearing
I know that I'm going to be out of school already
which MEANS that I'm looking into/contemplating staying THURS-SUN which is a big step for me because this year was the first time that I even put a room in my name so to have that extra amount on my shoulders scares me a little but all of my friends are saying "do eeeeeeet!"
I'm ready! bring it on!

I'm going to be there and am saving up money as we speak. When does the room blocks usually open, just for my reference? I want to make sure I get into the Hyatt. You do have to put one night down at the time of reservation right?

As far as the hole in the bank account, I completely agree. I want to try to get my own room this year. (Not that I don't like rooming with people, I LOVE it.... I just don't want to have to deal with potential damages.
I love my ACen family! Whether or not I return next year- please know I love you all! Until we meet again!

Wait till the End of September, October or even November. That's when room block's for the Hyatt will begin to open. ^___^ And the first night stay deposit is usually around April, so you have no need to worry till April. But make sure to save though! That's what my boyfriend and I usually do.

I'm excited though, can't wait. I'm already putting some money away in my savings. And I want lots and lots of money!

Aw, congrats to your sister! Maybe you could suggest it being at Rosemont? I know that several years ago we had not only a prom at the Hyatt but also a wedding reception.

OMG ME TOO! I need to figure out exactly how much I need to save. Especially since I want my own room. *Does calculations* I'm looking at about $600 for the room alone. *faints* Maybe that isn't such I good idea after all.

It was about $450 this year for three nights at the Doubletree (with taxes). Hyatt should be roughly comparable with that. Not cheap, but it shouldn't be quite that much.

Well, the ended up raising the rate for my room over what it was supposed to be. I ended up paying 604 for 3 nights. Sure, I scored enough Gold Pass points that I'll get a suite at Ohayocon next year, but still, I really did not want to pay that. Of the roughly 15 cons I go to in a year this is by far the most expensive for parking and a room, which the parking was an extra 45. I found out later people staying at other hotels got cheaper parking.

Unfortunately, that's not gonna happen. I wish! But there's no way she could afford it, plus a lot of the guests are elderly and being in a car for an hour probably wouldn't go over well. And they have officially set the date for May 21, 2011. Which means the rehearsal is going to be May 20. So I either go for a little bit on Friday and again on Sunday, just go on Sunday, or don't go at all. This sucks. And what sucks even more is that since I'm not going, my boyfriend probably won't be able to go either. :(
