AWESOME! I completely forgot about that possibility. I'll definitely be booking my room block this weekend then!

Sadly Sunday is not available anymore according to the hotel page, so departing Monday wouldn't be an option.

I actually was just able to book Thurs-Monday, so perhaps it was a fluke, or maybe has to do with the length of stay or number of nights?
Im just grateful for the cancellation policy so I can start getting things in order but know that I can still back out if need be.

Oh my goodness! I was so excited when I first found out about this! And now that it is going to be in Orlando, I am even more excited. Since I live in Orlando, I will definitely be able to attend! Can't wait!  :biggrin:

When the fair was in Orlando in 2012, the weather was actually pretty comfortable. It was actually hotter here in PA than it was in Florida. We did Pony Fair, spent a week doing Disney and Universal, then drove over to Clearwater for a couple of days, and I don't remember either of us complaining about the heat or humidity.

I hope that we can make it this year, but I am doubtful since we also want to take a trip in August for our 10th anniversary.

Any chance that we can get more hotel rooms added for Sunday. It won’t let me book for the weekend.

We are looking into what’s causing the booking issue. ;) We have a fairly large room block, so it doesn’t make sense for Sunday to be sold out.

Yes, it will be in Orlando at the Rosen Plaza Hotel on June 16 & 17 ;)

From the Facebook announcement:
We are excited to announce that The 2018 Pony Fair will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Plaza Hotel. Our room block is now available. Please consider staying at the host hotel as part of our room block. The link to book rooms is posted below.

https://www.phgsecure.com/IBE/bookingRedirect.ashx?propertyCode=ORLRZ&group=grppony&arrivalDate=06-15-2018

Additional information about our event can found on our website www.mylittleponycon.com

We can't wait to see you in 2018!
Thanks but it looks like I won't be able to book that hotel room on time since I want to use my tax return to book a room and some of the rooms are nearly booked. :/
As soon as my tax returns, I'll book a nearby hotel as soon as possible.

It's been a long time since I've been to MLP fair so forgive me for asking a really stupid question. Can I order the fair tickets here(online) or I can order it at front when I arrived. Please tell me as I would really appreciate it, thanks. :)

There is a new thread with updates for this year's event here: http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,389902.0.html
Please follow the new thread for current updates, links to ticket sales, and other news & announcements.

Tickets (general admission, most merchandise packages, & vendor booths) have not yet been released for sale. We do recommend purchasing tickets in advance online because if we reach venue capacity during pre-sales, there will not be any tickets available at the door (this happened at the last Fair in 2016).

Regarding the hotel block - there should be availability on all of the nights of the event. We have put a few calls in to find out why the website is showing certain nights are unavailable, but we have not received an answer for that yet. If you go to the Rosen Plaza's main reservation page (ie not the group rate link), it does show rooms available on all of the Fair dates, plus several days before & after.
https://gc.synxis.com/rez.aspx?tps=fml&adult=1&step=1&hotel=69868&shell=ORLRZ&chain=10237&template=ORLRZ&avcurrency=USD

I would recommend calling them directly to make the reservation at 1 (800) 627.8258, and request the Pony Fair group rate "grppony".

Booking a room is only making a reservation to stay at later date. You don't pay for the hotel cost until the time of your stay. Hopefully that info helps with budgeting plans. ;)
