it's pretty cheap! hotel is $20 - $50/night, depending on where you go and how many ponies you will be staying with... of course there is admission for $70 - $80, and then there is either plane travel expenses - $200 - or if you drive, there is gas and possibly rental car expenses. as well as parking... if you drive with multiple ponies, however, you can split the cost!
in my experience, now would be the perfect time to start preparing ~ anything later and it starts getting hectic pretty fast...>>42078983
if you're feeling adventurous, you could theoretically hide in the relaxation room instead of finding a hotel xD
cons are so much better if you get a hotel within walking distance to the convention - the closer the better!
