@Creexification what do you mean New York wouldn't be as kid-friendly? I think they should host it in New York or Boston, Florida is more South Coast than East Coast.
Florida is definitely on the East Coast. Yes it is the southern east coast, but the east coast nonetheless. In the statement "more kid-friendly" I was referring to Orlando as a center of tourism consisting of many amusement parks and an abundance of hotels to choose from at a reasonable price. If you are talking about New York City, it isn't exactly the most child-friendly place nor is it affordable for most people.
Are you planning on attending Minecon 2013? Tell us about it!
I really hope I can go and be a panelist again. 2011 was amazing.
I'm hoping it takes place the weekend before or after Thanksgiving, in Disneyworld. That way I can 'convince' my family to let me go and tie it in with our annual vacation so I don't have to travel twice back to back!
