Orlando is not that expensive lol, seems like some have a lot of preconceptions about orlando. Also the humidity is nothing really, there's a heatwave everywhere almost anyways. I'm in Tampa and the heat/humidity is'nt bad at all here. Orlando would be the only location i would attend.

Orlando is a lot more expensive when you figure a week in orlando is going to cost at least 500$ more than a week in vegas just for the hotell alone. For people vacationing on a budget, there's no better location than vegas!

Need to remember the $$ posted here are for the hotel rooms negotiatd by SOE for the event.  There are PLENTY of hotels in Orlando and Vegas that will be MUCH cheaper than what is posted here.  The hotel room prices here are not accurate to what we could find as individual SMILEY.  I'll go to the one in Orlando, any other one would not be feasible SMILEY.

I attended the last Fan Faire in Orlando. If they are considering holding it at the same hotel I can tell you that the other hotels in that general vacinity are very high dollar. There are some less expensive ones not too far away but you would need to rent a car and drive to the event location. After attending 6 Fan Faires, I can tell you that staying in the hotel where Fan Faire is being held is the only way to go.

 So like why not enjoy the nice spring weather in Orlando, and all those Spring Break chicks hanging out there too.

How about 2, 1 for east coast and one for west coast? I know would have to drive and I cant get out to denver or vegas but I can *bleep* sure get to orlando and most of the east coast. Gas has become a consideration with the prices these days and since I just got laid off as well travel is quite limited. Just a thought since Im sure others who would like to attend are in similar situations.

Europe is a real place. You can go there on an aeroplane. You will need a passport and people will be a little taken aback if you offer them US$ as payment, but there is no good reason why Fan Faire couldn't happen there. Even in Germany. 

 Maybe one year SOE ...? please? I'm happy to fly out to Orlando or Vegas or whatever. I've been to both before and they're kinda dull, but really, couldn't you show a little love to us over here? Please?

I was'nt posting a conspiracy theory. I was stating that Florida had a big shot at winning then the poll was changed merging all 3 vegas together and putting Orlando in last instead of first. Theres like 5 posts under this one with little red letters asking peeps not to post about conspiracy theories. We are'nt plotting to kill someone and cover it up using the keebler elves. Just stating that O-town was in first, and now in last.

 And yes most of the "Conspiracy Theories" seem to be posting for Orlando. If we are motivated enough to post a conspiracy just imagine how well we will do at the Fan Faire!

Orlando FTW!

March is a GREAT time of year to go to Florida...  70s to low 80s during the day, beautiful sunny skies and (better yet) hurricane season does not start until June 1.  LOTS of excellent activities to do in the area - and who could pass up a chance to see Mickey?

You cut the suspense with a knife, ewvery time it looks like Vegas id going to run away with it, Denver manages to come up with enough votes to get back into the race. Even coming from Denver, I didn't know that there would be enough support to make it a close race. Looks like people close by are relaly pushing...I have seen at least 2 times where Denver has gained nearly 60 votes in just a few short hours... I voted for Vegas but I like to watch a good horse race.... Cmon Vegas, we need more votes!

There's more to do in Orlando than in Vegas? You have either never been to Las Vegas OR you are too young to enjoy yourself there...Let's see Theme parks that are $60 per day per person and Hotels that are $50 a night more expensive? No thanks.. I don't know how many of you have attended Fan Faires, but the VAST majority of attendees are over 21 so they can drink and gamble if they like, so those of you who aren't 21 yet are at some disadvantage and I do feel for you. There IS a lot of things to do in Las Vegas for the under 21 crowd. Since I have seen the theme parks during sprint break, I can tel you It's not much fun waiting in a line for 45 minutes to ride a mediocre roller coaster for 2 minutes... Besides there are plenty of roller coasters in in Las Vegas...

Wow, that many people wanna risk losing their money on SNOW!!!!! I can't believe it. Vegas FTW! Honestly, if you all wanna see SNOW that bad, watch the TWC. I don't wanna risk my cash and vacation time on the whims of Mother Nature. What's gonna happen in Vegas, not a blizzard that's for sure.

OMG.  How many times does it have to be stated...

IT DOES NOT SNOW THAT MUCH IN DENVER.

Go west into the mountains?  Yeah, your snow concerns are valid.

Climate of Denver

The climate of Denver, although frequently unpredictable and rather misunderstood by most, is really rather pleasant. Denver, lying on the east side of the mountains and located on the plains of the state, experiences the benefit of a weather barrier, a winter snow shield that we call the Rocky Mountains. Occasionally a major snow storm will impact the area and leave a significant amount of snow upon metro residents, yet the winters and summers remain mostly dry, averaging 8-15 inches of precipitation a year. Ranging from an average of 69 degrees in the summer to a standard 45-degree day in the winter, the city and suburbs stay mild and arid year-round. Also, Colorado State displays over 300 days of sunshine per year, more annual golden sunbeams than even San Diego California!

Orlando FTW...weather down here in March is incredible...beach is less than an hour away and there is plenty to do (even gamble on the boats) so Vegas doesn't have anything on O-Town!
