April 6, 2017 – Saturday adult tickets for Star Wars Celebration Orlando are now sold out, organizer ReedPOP announced this morning. So if you were thinking about just showing up at the Orange County Convention Center on Saturday, April 15th, you will be out of luck.
Saturday is typically the busiest day of the convention and has sold out in advance at previous Celebrations in London and Anaheim.
In April, 2016, Saturday tickets sold out for Star Wars Celebration Europe (London) three months before the July 15-17th event.
Similarly, for Celebration Anaheim in 2015, ReedPop announced early Saturday morning (April 18th at 1:03 AM) that Saturday tickets were no longer available. So if you were already in your car driving to the Anaheim Convention Center, you would have been sorely disappointed when you arrived Saturday to find a “SOLD OUT” sign at the box office window.
You can still buy Saturday tickets second-hand. One good place to look is Facebook and the various fan pages. Saturday tickets for children (ages 6-12) are also still available.
When Celebration Orlando tickets were first made available May 25, 2016, the Jedi Master VIP tickets ($700) sold out within the first 30 minutes. The 4-day tickets ($150) took a bit longer to disappear and were sold out by December 22, 2016.
With Celebration Orlando only a week away, expect Thursday, Friday and Sunday to sell out as well. Also note that the discounted “Preshow” ticket prices will go away on Wed., April 12th at 12noon ET. At that time, remaining tickets will be offered at full onsite prices.
