Oooh - do you see how green I am with envy?? Nothing cool ever comes to mid-IL. How far ahead do you need to order tickets? I'm thinking some year that will be my vacation.

I turned the TV on just when the older pairs couple danced and they were fabulous.

Thanks for the info. Now, I could handle a package deal in NC in Jan - LOL.

Where did you sit? I've been glued to the TV all weekend while the events are being re-broadcasted. Who was the couple with the girl having shaggy blonde hair and they did so wonderfully. I believe they were American, not sure if it was pairs or ice dancing.

Jacquie, we were in a section at the beginning of one of the curves at the end... NOT in the balcony, so they were good seats!

I found the website, see 2 of the hotels are already sold out. I may put this on my "bucket list" of things I always wanted to do. There are packages of afternoon, evening, etc. tickets. What would you recommend?
