[Update: Sold Out!] Plus, because I really believe in taking care of our community ...

Group Hotel Rate:

I've been in discussion with the hotel I stayed at last year for BlizzCon (Cortona Inns and Suites) and arranged a group rate with them. So, if you are planning on going to BlizzCon, there is another hotel option beyond the ones Blizzard will be advertising on their site. The hotel is less than 3 minutes away from the convention center, so it's very convenient.

This is the information you will need if you want to book with Cortona.

ROOM TYPE: Dlx King or double Queen
BOOKING URL/LINK: https://www.reservations-page.com/C0...ashx?pc=wowi08
PROMO CODE: WOWI08
$75.65 + fees and tax.
1-4 people per room max.
As our guest, you will enjoy the many attractions located in perfect proximity to the hotel. Such attractions include the Disneyland® Resort, the Anaheim Convention Center and the Downtown Disney® District, which offers a multitude of Shopping and dining experiences along with a variety of entertainment choices.

Includes free parking, Deluxe Continental Breakfast each morning, free high speed internet access in public space (lobby, breakfast room, pool area) fee based Internet access in guest rooms.

Anyone able to provide advice on getting there from Canada?

Hotel is a nice start, would like to budget it out to see if we can afford it ($7k spent for 50 inch tv/blue-ray/leather couches).

Agreed. (Though I doubt it will happen with Cair's no signed posters policy :P)
Really wish I could go.

Yep. If you search really hard, there are pictures from last year. I will be bringing my camera as well. But Cairenn knows I like cookies....... So no promises.
