Don't know if I'm gonna end up going, but I have a question about Travel Packages as I'm very unfamiliar with them:

Say I get a package, but I don't like the Mania seats that came with them, or I wanted to sell them and get cheaper seats, perhaps in the 300's let's say. Is it possible getting the travel package to sell tickets that come with it? Or are they somehow put together with the whole package and un-sellable?

I'd imagine I'd be fine to sell whatever tickets I get if I don't like them and get different ones when they go on sale, but I'm not sure.

When you get sent the package it's all individual tickets so you can re sell them individually .

Cool, thanks. It makes it a lot easier for me then if I decide to fork over the money for a package.

I've already started saving and luckily for me, I don't have to worry about airfare or hotel seeing as I live 2 hours away and have family who live a 10 mins from the Superdome. I'd advise anyone who is planning on coming and enjoying nola to bring at least $1000 if you really wanna have fun.

I'm considering on buying a travel package.

Anybody knows if people who bought the Silver packages got good seats?

I remember people who went to WM28 got excellent clear center seats, not sure about this year.

Is there a big difference in cost, or is the convinience worth it?

If I'm going to travel all the way from Australia to the US I'm going to spend more than 4 nights so would I be better off getting the package and then going to NY and other tourist cities or buy my wm, axxess, raw tickets and accommodation separately then get my flights and stuff to NY? Also anybody who has bought the Gold or Platinum package can you give me an indication of what the seats are like, please?

All depends if you want to do exactly the package (only 4 days, all the WWE events) otherwise not really for me.

If my calculations are correct here's how much i'm planning on spending:

Hotel: Three day stay, $150 per night: Saturday, Sunday, Monday.
Mania: Hoping to get seats in the 300's.. Defintely not going for obstructed view seats, i'm assuming the tickets in that section would cost anywhere from 100 to 500 dollars.
RAW: I'll be hoping to get fairly cheap tickets. I'm hoping to spend about $200 on tickets, that sounds about right?

Transportation: The Taxi fare from the hotel i'm looking at to both the Superdome and the Arena RAW will most likely be held at is only four dollars. I'll only use the taxi going to an from shows, and to and from the airport, so I'd say i'm only spending 20 dollars max on transportation.

Food: Just gonna eat fast food, nothing fancy. For three nights with three meals a day i'm assuming i'd spend about 70 dollars altogether on food.

So altogether my estimations on how much i'll be spending altogether:

Minimum: $900
Maximum: 1,240

For those of you that have been to Mania, does that sound about right or are my numbers totally off? No way it could be that cheap right?
You're in the ballpark though your ticket prices are a bit on the expensive side so you're likely going to save a little there (unless ticket prices skyrocket for both WM and Raw due to the XXX anniversary).


Here's what I spent (within $20 for each thing) for my past 3 'Manias. I'm a tad OCD when it comes to budgeting for a big trip, which is why I remember these amounts lol. Miscellaneous are things like parking and other stuff that doesn't fall into those categories.

WrestleMania 21 - Los Angeles
WM Ticket - $750 (10th row behind announcers facing entrance)
Souvenirs/miscellaneous - $50
Total Cost - $800


WrestleMania XXVI - Phoenix (Friday through Monday)
WM Ticket - $200 (section 221 of Phoenix Stadium)
WM Axxess (1 session)/souvenirs - $100
Hotel - $180 (3 nights, split w/friend)
Car rental/gas - $180 (4 day rental, split w/friend, drove from LA)
Food - $120 (2 diners, rest are fast food)
Miscellaneous - $20
Total Cost - $800


WrestleMania XXVIII - Miami (Thursday through Tuesday)
WM Ticket - $250 (far end risers facing stage)
WM Axxess/WWE HOF Ceremony - $100
Hotel - $250 (5 nights, split w/friend)
Airfare - $350 roundtrip
Car rental/gas - $220 (6 day rental, split w/friend)
Food - $180 (we went on a food network/travel channel trip during our stay)
Tourist stuff/Misc. - $100
Total Cost - $1450

Even if the show isn't all that great I still wanna be able to say I went to one. I'm for sure going to Post-Raw as I know that's gonna be great.

Probably will be going by myself, unless in between now and when the tickets going on sale I can get some friends together and go.

My plan at the moment is I wanna go to the HOF, Mania and Post-Raw. Axxess just sounds like a headache I don't need and something kids would enjoy more than I would. Plus I'm likely just to run into a wrestler or two on the streets.

I'll be flying from Cali and I already know I wanna stay at either the Holiday Inn or Hyatt Regency as they're within walking distance so cab rides won't be necessary. As for food I can just stick with fast food or snacks, I'm not a heavy eater to begin with.

So my plan is looking like this:
HOF
Mania
Post-Raw
Plane
Hotel
(Money for merchandise or souvenirs)
------------------

For those who have been to Mania I would love some advice on what to do (where to sit, package or no package, plane tickets, when to leave...things like that)
Since I've always wanted to visit New Orleans, I'm likely going to drop in on Thursday or even Wednesday so it gives me at least a day or two to do some sight-seeing and just enjoy what the city has to offer. Maybe catch a ROH or Dragon Gate show on Friday, do Axxess and HOF on Saturday, Mania on Sunday, Raw on Monday, then head back home on Tuesday.


No complaints from me on my last two Manias re:seating. I'm personally against packages since I could almost always find savings doing everything separately. Unless you want to get gold seats (like ringside), I'd just buy the tickets separately. Put websites like priceline, kayak, hotels.com,etc to good use. I was able to save $60/night through Priceline's "name your own price" deal when we went to Phoenix ($120 for Sheraton rather than $180). Was also able to save about $90 off my airfare last year simply by flying out of Ontario rather than LAX and arriving in Ft. Lauderdale rather than Miami.


I would also pass up the packages offered up by Priceline,etc because I've found that by mixing and matching different hotels, airlines, and rental car companies (if you choose) you could actually save more money than if you take their bundles. I know some people don't like the hassle of trying out various combinations but it's worth it for me especially if I could save upwards of a couple hundred dollars simply by doing your homework.


Be a bit liberal on your budget limits. I'd recommend budgeting a bit more than what you want to spend and then go under it. That way you'll come back home with extra money in your pocket. The worst thing is when you don't budget enough for a big trip and then find yourself in the red midway through the trip. It's happened to my friend when we made a trip up to San Francisco and I had to cover for him the last 2 days.


Here are the views from my seats.

WM XXVI (section 221) - my camera was completely zoomed out. The view is better than the picture would suggest.


WM XXVIII (far end risers)
