WrestleMania 32 - The Ultimate Travel Thread III

THIS IS THE TEMPLATE ONLY. WILL NOT FULLY UPDATED UNTIL A LOCATION IS CONFIRMED!





Thanks to EVERYONE who contributed in the WrestleMania 30 thread and the OP in that thread 'Abnorman' for creating the thread and idea. His complete and thOrough explanation served as the template for this thread. Here is all the information that we've collected so far for WrestleMania 31. Thanks to 'PoyPoy14 for taking time to color code and format this OP as well.

1. GENERAL SALE TICKET AND WWE EVENT INFORMATION
2. TRANSPORT & ACCOMMODATION
3. THE WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EXPERIENCE
4. BAY AREA TOURISM
5. TRAVEL PACKAGE INFORMATION
6. SELLING/BUYING TICKETS FROM FORUM USERS
7. TWITTER HANDLES & BOARD GET TOGETHERS


**********

1. GENERAL SALE TICKET INFORMATION

  • One option is to forego the packages and book everything separately. There's a trade off here: Value for increased hassle.
  • In general, it's best to be ready to buy your tickets DAY-OF to ensure the best seats. It usually takes a while for things to sell out (Axxess, especially, tends to have availability almost up to the event), but you don't want to get caught having to hit StubHub for tickets at beefed-up prices.
  • PRESALE: There should be a presale on Ticketmaster a few days before the general sale. You will require codes to access this sale. Follow @Wrestlemania and @LevisStadium on Twitter and keep an eye out on this forum and the dirtsheets for all the codes, which will be easy to find.
  • International buyers will have to pick their tickets up at Will Call (not a major hassle this year). US buyers can get theirs delivered. Last year, Ticketmaster added an option for international buyers to print at home for WrestleMania (not RAW).
  • In previous years, people have gamed the system by opening a separate (US) Ticketmaster account and transferring their tickets, thus being able to print 'em out and skip Will Call.


CAMERA POLICY FOR WRESTLEMANIA, HoF & RAW:


* Camera lenses cannot exceed 6" when fully extended. No video cameras are allowed.

  • These tickets go INSANELY QUICKLY, and Ticketmaster have screwed up 2 years running, so expect a lot of stress when it comes time to buy.

**********

2. TRANSPORT & ACCOMMODATION



FLIGHTS:
  • For flight deals, try Skyscanner.net, Farecompare.com or Kayak.com.
  • Try a few configurations. There's plenty of airports in the US - try breaking up your flight: fly into a hub airport, and then book an onward flight to San Jose, Oakland or San Francisco. Alternatively, try booking a flight to nearby airports and taxi/bus/train to San Jose/Santa Clara.
  • In the USA, flying is often just as cheap (and much faster!) as going by train or bus, so don't assume ground transport will be the best value.
  • Local airlines may have deals: Delta, AirTran, JetBlue SouthWest or Spirit (Oakland Only). Many will charge separately for hold luggage and other perks.
  • Their are 3 airports to choose from : San Fran and Oakland (38 Minutes away from Levi's Stadium) and San Jose (10 minutes away from Levi's Stadium).
  • Unlike New Orleans, you will be able to get to the Bay Area easy VIA Amtrak. Use Code V636 to save 15% off of your travel, expires 8/31

ACCOMMODATION:

GETTING AROUND THE BAY AREA:
  • VTA.org will give you information about getting around San Jose and Silicon Valley
  • Bart.org will give you information about getting around San Francisco and Oakland
  • Caltrain.com will give you information to get between San Francisco and San Jose
  • Be advised, It is 8.5 miles from Downtown San Jose to Levi's Stadium. Both VTA and CalTrans will have service going to and from the Stadium, it is unclear if AmTrak will as well.
**********

3. THE WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EXPERIENCE


(These will be made soon)
  • Head to this Facebook page for meet-ups, etc.
  • There's a pretty big Facebook event page made up of (mostly) people from this forum. Check it out here.


MERCHANDISE: Never fear: the WWE will take every opportunity to get money from you. They usually operate a big WWE Store on the stadium grounds with all the goodies. One thing I like (because I always get a souvenir program) is that you can buy program at any time - so you don't have to look after it during an event.

LAST YEARS SUPERSTORE SIGNING SCHEDULE:

THU:
1pm - Booker T
4pm - Fandango & Summer Rae

FRI:
1pm - Christian
4pm - Cesaro

SAT:

SUN:

* WrestleMania week doesn't end with the WWE! If you crave even more wrasslin', there'll be a variety of smaller events by other companies making a quick buck off the WrestleMania crowd. Needless to say, these are not included in the travel packages.


**********

4. BAY AREA TOURISM

  • Firstly, WikiVoyage and Tripadvisor are your friends.
  • You will be driving distance of many popular tourist spots along the West Coast.

    (Roughly within a 4 hour drive)

    Napa Valley
    Reno, NV
    Monterey,CA (Pebble Beach)
    Lake Tahoe
    Yosemite National Park
    Sequoia National Park

    (Roughly within a 8 hour drive)

    Death Valley
    Los Angeles
    Las Vegas
    Grand Canyon
    Redwood's National Forest
    Portland, OR
    San Diego

FOOD & DRINK:
  • (Area I will need help in filling in for food. The Bay area is known for seafood and San Francisco style burritos. There is a Chinatown in SF and a Japantown in SJ)
  • 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 a bit more authentic to suit any budget.

    Local delicacies include:
  • 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 regualrs no about to enhance their experience.
    **My personal order is always a Double Double, animal style, whole onion, extra toast, fries well done, animal style, neapolitan shake**
    http://www.in-n-out.com/menu.aspx
  • The Boiling Crab
    Small chain seafood restaurant that does Low Country family style pots filled with your choice of crustaceans, sausage, corn and/or potatoes, seasoned mild or spicy.
    http://theboilingcrab.com/uploads/me...nu_Front_4.jpg
  • Tri-Tip Beef (Bottom Sirloin), normally BBQed.
  • San Fransisco Style Burrito
  • Local eateries featured on Man v Food, Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and other Food Network/Travel Network shows
    http://www.tvfoodmaps.com/

NIGHTLIFE:

HISTORY & TOURISM:
  • Many visitors will take in Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge/Park, The Apple Store at Apple's HQ among other activities
  • San Fran tourist centre is very LGBT-friendly, with several gay clubs & bars.

**********
5. 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.
  • 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

  • VIP & Platinum sold out on the first day.
  • Royal New Orleans sold out on the second day.
  • Gold & Silver sold out in less than a week.
