I probably will, I have a friend who booked a room over a month ago, apparently two of the hotels near the convention center are already full. I'm kind of hoping I can bring one of my friends who used to be a brony with me.

I have no idea who's coming, but I hope the panels were as fun as they were last year.

Oh cool! Some people are from here are coming! I would love to meet up and hang out! I will be traveling alone for the very first time and having people I already know may quell my nervousness.

What should I expect when I go? I have never gone before. I am so nervouscited :p

Sure! This is actually the first time traveling/going by myself too! My mom usually comes with me, but she felt like I was old enough to go alone this year (I'm 20 haha). Just prepared to except lots of fun, no sleep, and plenty of pony!  :lol:

http://bronycon.org/guests/
Kelly Sheridan, Maddy Peters, Vincent Tong, Cathy Weseluck and Daniel Ingram have been announced so far.

I carpool up to Baltimore with a bunch of friends from Knoxville. The people in charge of organizing this trip said the Hilton sold out of rooms, at least for Bronycon attendees, quickly. They managed to get a couple rooms at the Sheraton, which is closer to registration and the vendor hall.

I look forward to this trip every year. The ride through the middle of Virginia is rather boring, though having a couple of good friends makes it better. Can't wait to see what swag is available at the vendor hall, I already commissioned a couple plushies to pick up at Bronycon.

Baltimore's also a great place for seafood. Living in the middle of Tennessee, I don't get much fresh seafood. Always go for some crab cakes, and sometimes lobster, whenever I'm in Maryland. There's a restaurant at the end of the harbor, within walking distance of the convention hall, called the Rusty Scupper. A bit pricey, but the food quality is amazing. They even have an all you can eat brunch on Sundays, though that'll cost about ~$45 or so.

I would like to go, but I will probably think on it too long and miss out on a hotel. Haha

I'll be at BronyCon! I've been roped into doing a "Drunk MLP History" Panel of some sort. I assume this is one of the post-10pm, 21+ ones.

That sounds awesome! I love those kinds of panels. I'll have to make sure not to miss it.

I just got the days off of work, so I'll be buying my badge today.

This will be my second time. It is so weird that it has been about ten years since I first got into MLP near the end of 2008 and joined mlparena in 2009. I am going with my friends. One who is a Youtuber who goes by the name of Keyblade Pony.
.
I myself will just have my badge with my online name Matalic Pebble. I also will have my stuffed animal 25 anniversary Pinkie pie that I converted into a bag that I keep small items in. Its become a tradition now especially because my Deviant art avatar is a picture of me with it. I have yet to begin a Youtube channel due to the fact that I am waiting till I can afford the music equipment to create my own music for my channel.

Got back from Baltimore yesterday. The convention itself wasn't bad, but I think I had more fun hanging out with my friends instead.
Eventually I'll get around to posting pictures of all the loot me and my friends purchased, rough estimate being over $10k of various forms of pony themed merchandise in one room.
About $4200 in high quality plushies sitting on one windowsill. Rather amazing.

I had a really great time this year. It killed me to have to go back to work, especially as busy as it is now.
