The Largest Star Wars Celebration is Coming Back to Orlando in 2017
The Force has already awakened and Star Wars Celebration will be the convention that sets the stage for the sequel to The Force Awakens
Following the incredible success of the revived fandom around the events of a galaxy far far away, Star Wars Celebration’s next US-based installment is returning to Orlando in 2017, April 13-16. While 2016 will host Star Wars Celebration in Europe, the 2017 event has a special meaning to Star Wars fans who will be awaiting the sequel to the widely-acclaimed Star Wars The Force Awakens—set to hit theaters in December 2017. There is no bigger event in our planet dedicated to Star Wars movies, comics and of course, costume play or cosplay as it is known by fans.
While it is still a bit early to know specifics, we can certainly expect Star Wars Celebration 2017 to bring dozens of actors to sign autographs and get photo opportunities with fans. In addition, there will be many vendors showcasing collectibles, action figures, costumes, and other Star Wars-themed merchandise. Fans can also expect to see life-size dioramas depicting scenes from Star Wars movies—including vehicles, starships and denizens of the far reaches of the galaxy. Best of all, this will all be held at the Orange County Convention Center, a facility that is as large as an Imperial Star Destroyer.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium loves Star Wars and we have been a favorite resort property for event attendees—largely thanks to our close proximity to the Orange County Convention Center. We are also located near a wide variety of entertainment options, including restaurants and shopping. The Force is strong with us, so we encourage you to plan ahead and book your stay ahead of time since Star Wars Celebration 2017 will be attracting tens of thousands of avid fans and we will sell out well before the event starts.
