Closer Look: Star Wars Celebration Tips & Memories!

Try to get the layout of the Convention Center and process by which passes to panels are received. In Orlando many people spent the night outside to be first inside, but were sent the wrong direction and did not get passes to the 40th Anniversary panel. -Carl
