OL 037: Star Wars Celebration Orlando Returns
The Return of Star Wars Celebration Orlando
After wandering the galaxy for five years, Star Wars Celebration is back in Orlando.
Star Wars Celebration Orlando is the ultimate Star Wars fan festival. Filled with passionate fans who dress as their favorite characters and geek out over four days, this conference truly lives up to its name.
The Star Wars Celebration Orlando event runs from April 13 – 16 (Thursday through Sunday) at the Orange County Convention Center. It's open daily from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM (except Sunday, which closes at 5:00 PM).
Despite the official closing time, there are other events that continue to run until 10:00 PM. You can get 12 hours of Star Wars geek fest and have a great time doing it.

You never know who you may meet at a Star Wars gathering. Many of the fans like to create mash-up costumes, which include variations on the Star Wars theme and other parts of a fan's life.
For example, we have Dolph Vader.
Perhaps you could find some rum for Captain Jack Stormtrooper.
Of course, you can find more traditional characters like Princess Leia and R2-D2.
Han Solo is never far away.
Chewbacca is ready for an Orlando vacation!
Oh, crap! It's Boba Fett.
It looks like Han got caught because Chewbacca was goofing off on vacation.
We all know where he's going to end up.

We love Star Wars Celebration Orlando and have some tips for you in the podcast. We'll discuss some of the reasons why you may want to attend the show. We have some Do and Don't advice for you. Not all of the action is on the main floor, and you may need to take a break. We'll tell you where to grab a bite and see more characters outside of the OCCC.
