WrestleMania 36 - The Ultimate Travel Thread







Spoiler for WWE 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.

    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 @RJStadium on Twitter and keep an eye out on this forum and the dirt sheets 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.


  • For Raymond James Stadium, they follow the Raymond James Stadium A-Z Fan Guide. 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.

  • 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 honoring 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 giving out the 'what?' chants and heckling even Dana Warrior which really got under a lot of people's skin. 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, NXT, RAW and SmackDown where they are very welcome.

  • For the past few 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!

    Buy your tickets to RAW and SmackDown Live 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.



Thursday 2nd April - Monday 6th April 2020

Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Session times:

  • General admission tickets generally do not sell out and are even usually available to purchase on the day at the box office.

    VIP is 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, 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)

Spoiler for Travel Package Information:
  • Each year, the WWE offers 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, 4 and 5-day packages.

    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 [email protected] or call (001)203 359 5182 for any questions.

    Email [email protected] 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.

    One thing to remember is that you don't find out much information about your trip until later on. You'll receive details about which hotel you're staying at in around December, and oftentimes you will not know what seats you have for Wrestlemania Week until a few weeks before the events.

Spoiler for Transportation:

  • 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.

    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.



  • For Tampa public transportation. https://www.visittampabay.com/

    For private transport, use Uber or Lyft. You can download the apps from the US App Store/Google Play store.

Spoiler for 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.

    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. 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.
WrestleCon Hotels:



Spoiler for Tourism:


  • 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.


Avast me hearties; there be booty in the endzone!

Re: WreslteMania 36 - The Ultimate Travel Thread

Found out my homie moved back to St Petersburg from Maryland, so I'll have somewhere to stay. I'll be flying in on Saturday and out Monday morning. Now I just have to make sure I have enough American Airlines miles by next year, so I can get a free flight down there.

Re: WreslteMania 36 - The Ultimate Travel Thread

Wonder what is happening there this April or maybe its just normal prices, but for this wresltemania weekend hotels are pricey around the stadium or downtown. Can't look at prices yet for next year.

Re: WreslteMania 36 - The Ultimate Travel Thread

I'm planning to go.

As of right now my companion and I will fly down from Toronto on the 2nd and stay through the 9th.

Two things I need to get is a birth certificate (as it didn't move with me when I moved two years ago), so I can get a passport (my companion already has his).

My money isn't in yet, but it should be here when the packages go on sale (based on this year's date) because we want to get up really close.

This is probably my first and only (outside of any in Toronto) Wrestlemania.

Re: WreslteMania 36 - The Ultimate Travel Thread

Welcome everyone. Can't believe we got a Mania.

Mania 36 will be my 15th mania in a row and the first mania in the city where i live. I actually won't have to board a plane or go on a long road trip next year since i live only 10 miles from the stadium.

This will feel a bit different but excited to see the city full of wrestling fanatics.
