The Homecoming 8th-12th September 2016 / Re: Tickets
« on: September 01, 2016, 11:02:30 PM »
I, along with many other people, will be angry if the main ticket is offered onsite. We had to prepay for our main ticket via Paypal. I don't like Paypal. According to the FB announcement, main ticket sales have been shut down.

* the quote button doesn't work

Sorry, I gotta ask, why would you be angry? No one forced you to get a ticket and pay for it in advance. Personally, I don't care if the Gatecon organizers decided to sell day tickets to the convention. We are all fans, aren't we?

Getting Around Vancouver & Beyond / Re: Currency question

I found this quite helpful when travelling abroad:

And I wouldn't count on shops/restaurants accepting USD in Vancouver. If there are any (I know some fast food joints do), they are probably few and far between.

The Homecoming 8th-12th September 2016 / Re: Autograph Sessions

Question: If I go to an actors table and don't like the photos they have there, I would have to go back to the Legends Photo Booth to get one and then return to the actor? If the actors table is very busy, do I have an opportunity to check out their pics before lining up? I remember at Creation's actors tables, it was very hard to see the photos until you were right in front of the actor and I don't want to be rude and push people aside in order to see something.

Gategoers at The Homecoming / Re: Meet-A-Gater

A bit late, but: Happy New Year to all of you!

I read about the Homecoming shortly after we had returned from our very first travel to Canada last September ... and was sad because I thought it would not be possible to go back to Vancouver the very next year (it's a long and not cheap trip from Germany). But my husband agreed to go again although he will not attend the convention. We'll cruise to Alaska and then stay for a week in Van, so that I can attend the convention. Soooo happy ... and grateful to my husband!

The days before the convention we now can do what we couldn't make last year, especially a trip to Vancouver Island and maybe whale watching. Does anyone know where is the best place to start/book this trip (near the Sheraton)?

Just one more thing, if you haven't done the Alaska cruise in September: it might be warm-ish in Vancouver but bring your winter jackets, gloves and hats. It gets very cold on the ship!!!

Hi SamC,

Welcome to the forum. I'm from Germany too, but have been living in Canada for a few years now.

If you want to do whale watching from Vancouver, Google whale watching Vancouver and it should give you a few options. I think most of those tours are day trips, because it takes a a while just to get out there. You'll probably have to go downtown though to catch a ship.

You can travel to Vancouver Island by plane or ferry/bus. I did the ferry/bus on a September weekend once and unfortunately the bus trip wasn't the best. bus was packed!!! It is cheaper than flying though, unless you get a good rate with Westjet or Air Canada. (or you could take a sea plane)

I did the Alaska cruise a few years ago (also in September) and i really enjoyed it. I'm planning on doing it again this year, but have nothing booked yet.

Listen to me going on and on. That was the travel agent in me talking :)

Would love to meet you and everybody else of course. I will be in seat O19.
