In a bit more than a week from now I’ll be attending MegaCon – one of the more popular Science Fiction and Fantasy conventions to regularly visit the Orlando, Florida area – will start.  It will be held in Hall D of the Orange County Convention Center (directions).  It will be held on March 15th through 17th and the hours are as follows:

Fri Mar 15th : 1pm – 7pm
Sat Mar 16th : 10am – 6pm
Sun Mar 17th : 10am – 5pm

Adult ticket prices at the door will be $30 for a single day or $60 for all three days, and children 10 and under get in for free with an adult.  Advance tickets can be purchased online or over the phone.  Parking will be $9 per day ($15 for oversized vehicles).

There are numerous Media Guests attending this years convention, but the big draw this year is a special Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion event.  There is an additional cost for this event, but there is still seating available.  Additionally there will be numerous chances to get signatures from various celebrity attendees.  To guarantee a signature you can pre-buy tickets.

This isn’t just a convention about Star Trek, television, or movie guests.  It’s also a comic book convention, and as a result many comic book guests will be available to meet as well.  The most famous of which is the renowned Neal Adams.  The convention will also have Anime Guests, Video Gaming, other Gaming, and numerous panels to choose from throughout the day.  And don’t forget the ever popular convention exclusives and the showroom floor exhibitors.

I’m excited to attend.  My favorite part of conventions is always the showroom floor.  Checking out the myriad items of memorabilia, and trinkets you can find while wandering around.  I find it fun to see them, and very often unique one of a kind items can be found.  It’s like hunting for treasure.  Not to mention the costumes.  There are some very creative people in this world who are capable of amazing costumes and conventions are their only outlet for showing them off.  If you see me there don’t hesitate to say, “Hi.”
