WrestleMania 32 - The Ultimate Travel Thread III

Thanks to EVERYONE who contributed to the previous Wrestlemania travel threads, and especially to the OP of the first thread: @abnorman , who's idea for creating a thread like this has helped hundreds, possibly thousands of people plan their Wretlemania journeys with as little headaches as possible. Here is all of the information that we have so far, for Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas, Texas.



1. GENERAL SALE TICKET AND WWE EVENT INFORMATION

2. TRANSPORT & ACCOMMODATION

3. THE WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EXPERIENCE

4. DALLAS FORT WORTH TOURISM

5. TRAVEL PACKAGE INFORMATION

6. SELLING/BUYING TICKETS FROM FORUM USERS

7. TWITTER HANDLES & BOARD GET TOGETHERS



**********



1. GENERAL SALE TICKET INFORMATION




Spoiler for General Sale Ticket Information:
  • One option is to buy a travel package. These are very expensive but really convenient so it really depends on what you value more; convenience or saving money. If you want to get a seat within the first couple of rows at Wrestlemania, then the top package is probably the best way to achieve that. Additionally, if you live in a country in which all of the ticket on-sale times are in the early hours of the morning, then a travel package will probably save you some mega headaches! Alternatively, you can save a bucket load of money by purchasing all of your tickets and booking your hotel separately.
  • If you don't find the seats you want in the initial pre-sale, or even on the day of general sale, then don't panic. Good seats are often released much later on in the process and you can still grab yourself a great seat close to the event. Also, if you're willing to play the waiting game, you could even snag yourself a great deal on StubHub on the week of the event. RAW IS AN EXCEPTION to this line of thinking, and you should grab any seats you can get, especially with 100,000 wrestling fans expected to be in the area.
  • PRESALE: There should be a presale on Ticketmaster a few days before the general sale for the majority of events. You will require codes to access this sale. Follow @Wrestlemania and @ATTStadium on Twitter and keep an eye out on this forum and the dirtsheets for all the codes, which will be easy to find.
  • For international buyers, delivery is never usually an option for tickets bought via ticketmaster. You will have to choose to either pick your tickets up at Will Call or to print them out yourself. If you choose the Will Call option and change your mind, you can transfer the tickets to yourself and select the e-ticket option. However, this is NOT possible the other way around.







POLICIES FOR WRESTLEMANIA, HoF & RAW:



  • Camera lenses cannot exceed 6" when fully extended. No video cameras are allowed.
  • For AT&T Stadium, they follow the standard NFL bag policy as well as their own additional security policies. If you want to know whether or not to risk your camera, seek the advice of more experienced forum members, who likely be happy to answer your questions. Be advised that the sign/banner policy would most likely be lifted for this event.







WRESTLEMANIA 32:



Sunday 3rd April 2016, 7PM EDT/4PM PDT/12AM GMT



Tickets on sale: November 2015

Presale: November 2015 (Codes will likely be posted in this thread)



To get an idea of ticket prices, here is the seating chart for last year:






AT&T Stadium 3D seat view: http://www.seats3d.com/nfl/dallas_cowboys/#/level_10/



The AT&T Stadium app is available on the iTunes & Google Play stores for those with US accounts.



_____________________________________________________







Hall Of Fame:



Saturday 2nd April 2016



Tickets on sale: January 2016

Presale: January 2016



Again, to get an idea of ticket prices, here is a list of last year's prices:






  • The Hall of Fame is a long night of speeches, with the last 2 years reaching 4 hours long. It's a great event for listening to stories and honouring wrestling legends, but if you're not into listening to people talk for long periods of time, this probably isn't the event for you.
  • Some people like to suit up for the event out of respect for the legends and that's cool, but be advised that this isn't mandatory and you can actually wear whatever you want.
  • If you go to the event, PLEASE be respectful. A small minority of the crowd where giving out the 'what?' chants and heckling even Dana Warrior which really got under a lot of people's skins. You're there to respect the legends that have given their body to entertain you over the years, be respectful and save the chants for Wrestlemania and RAW, where they are very welcome.



_____________________________________________________







#RAWAfterMania:



Monday 4th April 2016



Tickets on sale: December 2016

Presale: December 2016



Last year's prices for an idea for this year:







American Airlines Center 3D Seat view: http://www.seats3d.com/nhl/dallas_stars/#/level_6/


  • For the past couple of years, the post-Wrestlemania RAW has rivaled Wrestlemania itself for entertainment value. The crowd is always hyped and looking to steal the show, and regardless of what your thoughts of this are watching on TV, it's always fantastic to be a part of!
  • Only 4 day package buyers will get tickets to RAW, so keep this in mind when deciding which package to buy.
  • Buy your tickets to RAW as soon as you can, as it's always the quickest event of the weekend to sell out. A big percentage of the good seats are already taken up by package holders, so you need to be on the ball if you don't have a package but want a good seat.



_____________________________________________________







AXXESS:



Thursday 31st March - Sunday 3rd April 2016



Tickets on sale: January 2016

Presale: January 2016




Session times based on last year:



Thursday: 6pm - 10pm

Friday: 6pm - 10pm

Saturday: 8am - 12pm/1pm - 5pm/6pm - 10pm

Sunday: 8am - 12pm



Last year's prices:



General Admission: $45 + fees

VIP Session: $95 + fees

Premium VIP: $175 + fees


  • General admission tickets generally do not sell out and are even usually available to purchase on the day at the box office.
  • VIP are a different story entirely and extremely difficult to get ahold of. You have to be on the ball and have a slice of luck on your side to get the VIP session you want, unless you are a package holder.
  • Premium VIP is somewhere in between depending on the superstar. Some are difficult to get ahold of, with some not selling out for hours or days.
  • Sometimes, extra tickets for VIP + Premium VIP are made available later down the road, so if you miss out on the superstar you want originally, then keep your eyes peeled.
  • Yes, VIP and Premium VIP tickets also get you into the general admission sessions. (This question seems to get asked a lot)



_____________________________________________________







NXT:



DATE TBC



Tickets on sale: TBC

Presale: TBC




Here is the seating chart from last year:







Ticket Prices: $15 - $75 + fees


  • Not much history to go off, so will only update ticket on sale times when we have concrete info. Expect them to be released anytime from January onwards.
  • With it seeming like WWE is positioning NXT as direct competition to ROH, expect these events to clash as they did this year. You may have to choose which you prefer!
  • This was one of the highlights of the whole week this year. Expect the same next year and expect this to be a very hot ticket, so again, be on the ball.






**********



2. TRANSPORT & ACCOMMODATION




Spoiler for Transport & Accommodation:
FLIGHTS:


  • For flight deals, try Skyscanner.net, Farecompare.com or Kayak.com.
  • If you choose a flight with layovers over direct, then your flight will usually work out much cheaper. Dallas is an international hub and will be easy to get to from anywhere in the world.
  • In the USA, flying is often just as cheap (and much faster!) as going by train or bus, so don't assume that ground transport will be the best value.



ACCOMMODATION:


  • For hotel deals, try sites like Hotwire.com, Kayak.com, Hotels.com, Booking.com or Lastminute.com.
  • If you spot a deal or hotel that you like, you should check the hotel's official site as well before booking, you might get a better deal through them directly.
  • There may also be late releases from the WrestleCon hotels.
  • For apartments & rooms, try AirBnB.com.
  • For hostels, try Hostelworld.com
  • Book your accommodation as EARLY as possible. A lot of people in this thread have ALREADY booked theirs (posted on 7th April). Most hotels don't charge you a deposit up front and offer free cancellation. Take advantage! Some people even like to book several hotels and then decide on which one they want closer to the time. Keep your options open.



PUBLIC TRANSPORT:


  • There are two Amtrak stations near Alington, Tx. One in Dallas and one in Fort Worth.
  • Use Uber or Lyft instead of booking a taxi as it's much cheaper. You can easily get a code from this forum to get your first ride with both of these companies for free (to the value of $20). You can download the apps from the US App Store/Google Play store.




**********



3. THE WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EXPERIENCE




Spoiler for The Wrestlemania Weekend Experience:
MERCHANDISE:


  • Don't worry if you want to get your hands on merchandise, as they sell it at all the events, plus have a huge superstore, usually in the same location as AXXESS. One thing I would say though, is get what you want from there as early as you can, as it usually doesn't take too long for them to start running out. Last year, the money in the bank briefcases kept getting sold out ridiculously fast.
  • They also do a couple of bonus signings at the superstore throughout the week. This year there were superstars such as Big Show, Kidd & Cesaro and the Bella Twins. These signings are free, but you need a wristband for them, which are given out at a predetermined time (which will be announced closer to the time).



OTHER EVENTS:



Instead of cluttering the topic with lots of pointless info from last year, these sections will be updated with info as and when it becomes available.



WrestleCon



Location: Venue TBC (Downtown Dallas, very close to AXXESS)

Ticket Prices: TBC

Tickets on sale: TBC

WrestleCon Hotels: TBC





Ring Of Honor:



Supercard Of Honor X

Date TBC



Location: TBC

Tickets on sale: TBC

Ticket Prices: TBC




I'm not a follower of indy wrestling, so if any of you out there know or or see any other events that should be added to this section of the thread, please contact @JL Cage .






**********



4. DALLAS FORT WORTH TOURISM ****(WILL BE UPDATED AS I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE AREA, IíLL TAKE ALL HELP AND SUGGESTIONS)****




Spoiler for Dallas Fort Worth Tourism:



FOOD & DRINK


  • Drinking age in the US is 21, and it's extremely rare to find any bar or shop that doesn't require ID. For international visitors, this usually means you'll have to carry your passport to bars, etc, as often this is the only form of international ID that will be accepted.
  • Do a bit of research and you can find something authentic to suit any budget.



Local delicacies include:


Fast Food:
  • In-N-Out Burger: One of the best fast food burger chains in the country, as everything is fresh. It is a staple of the West Coast and Texas, and is worth the 15 minute wait. There is a 'secret' menu that regulars know about to enhance their experience.
  • Fuel City Tacos
  • Braum's
  • In-N-Out
  • Chick-Fil-A
  • Jet's Pizza
  • Maple and Motor
  • Fuzzy's Taco Shop

Sit down:
  • Pappadeaux
  • Pappacito's
  • Ojeda's
  • Pappa's BBQ
  • Sonny Bryant's BBQ
  • Grand Lux Cafe
  • Lawery's the Prime Rib
  • Babe's Chicken House
  • Breadwinner's Cafe
  • Mother's Daughter's Diner
  • Fogo de Chao
  • Texas de Brazil
  • Rudy's
  • Jasper's
  • Benihana
  • Black-eyed Pea
  • Perry's Steakhouse

Other people's favorite's:
  • Cheesecake Factory
  • Twisted Root Burger
  • Old Butcher Shop

I also recommend eating a Chicken Fried Steak while in Dallas: http://www.dmagazine.com/publication...teak-in-dallas

Feel free to add more as we go along.

SHOPPING

  • Grapevine Mills: Grapevine near DFW, home of the Legoland indoor park
  • Dallas Galleria: Has a skating rink in the middle of the mall. Area is also home to some very upscale restaurants. (Closest mall to Downtown Dallas)
  • Northpark Center
  • Stonebriar Center: Frisco
  • Southlake Town Square: Southlake
  • The Village at Allen/Fairview: Allen
  • Shops at Legacy: Plano

5. TRAVEL PACKAGE INFORMATION




Spoiler for Travel Package Information:
  • Each year, the WWE offer several travel packages for people to buy. They include all the major WWE events on WrestleMania weekend and hotel accommodation. They are offered in 3 and 4 day packages, with the 3 day package not including RAW or accommodation for Monday night.
  • As mentioned earlier, the trade off with packages is that they're expensive, but convenient: one relatively stress-free purchase for major WWE events & accommodation.
  • Email travel.packages@wwe.com or call (001)203 359 5182 for any questions.
  • Email wrestlemania.packages@wwecorp.com to request to be on the Travel Package mailing list.



Package Details:


  • The top-tier packages tend to sell out quickly, sometimes on the first day. By top-tier I mean from the top package, down to Platinum.
  • Last year, the California Dreamin' Package (the most expensive) was put on sale a week before the rest of the packages, so keep your eyes peeled.
  • One thing to remember is that you don't find out much information about your trip until later on. You'll recieve details about which hotel you're staying at in around December, and oftentimes you won't know what seats you have for Wrestlemania until very late.



Here is a very rough idea of the seats you can expect when you purchase a package. The pic is from back at Wrestlemania 28, but it still holds fairly true. Replace 'Royal New Orleans' with whatever the themed package is this year.

The Process


  • Travel packages will be available from 3PM ET on *TBC* from Wrestlemania.com.
  • You must be 18 or older to purchase a travel package.
  • Payment must be made by a single debit/credit card only.
  • Once you've made your purchase, you'll get a confirmation of purchase, then a full confirmation within 10 days.
  • It's probably worth ringing your bank or credit card company beforehand and making them aware of the upcoming purchase, as it has been known plenty of times for the card to decline the purchase, with it being so big.



POSSIBLE Package Hotels for Wrestlemania 32:



A few experienced posters have narrowed down the likely locations of the travel package hotels to:



- Sheraton Arlington

- Hilton Arlington

- Hyatt Place Dallas

- Hyatt Place Arlington




**********





6. BUYING & SELLING TICKETS FROM FORUM USERS




Spoiler for Buying & Selling Tickets From Forum Users:
*Use this thread to sell or buy any tickets for Wrestlemania 32 weekend. Protect yourself with purchases. Make sure you receive the money before sending out tickets and it's best to use PayPal for money transfers so either side can dispute it if something goes wrong. Most tickets will be instantly transferable through Ticketmaster.



SCAMMERS will be banned as soon as we become aware of them. Also, this thread is to help each other out, so don't post in here if you're trying to profit from other users, use StubHub or something similar.

I actually think it's closer to Fort Worth if your planning on staying in Dallas.
