If you just want to the cape, buy the ticket and then just don't go.
That would be a complete waste of money. The cape doesn't matter, it's the things that actually happen that matter. That's why it's so expensive for a ticket. The cape would make the price not go up or down. I might go to MineCon. It just depends on if I can make it.
Uum are you serious you would really go to minecon. There is really nothing to do except staring at some lame looking geeks all the time.
And you would really want to drive 500 km for that? Well if your parents really want to do that for you you must know that you are very spoiled.
Bad place to begin with. You're better off not going. Less gunshot wounds.
I just got back from a trip to Orlando. The only negative experiences I had were cabs that kept saying "my credit card reader is broken!" and demanded cash (it got old after the 4th time in a row), and that no one speaks English. So basically, if you are fluent in Spanish and carry a lot of cash with you, you'll fit right in.
