View Full Version : Dude, if it's in Kississime, why is it called Anime Festival ORLANDO?

See thread title. oo;

:thumbsup: Anime Festival Kissimmee doesn't sound as catchy as Anime Festival Orlando.

I kinda wish it was in Orlando... It would make sense, plus that from last year hotel was nice but too small for an anime/cosplay convention. And what happened to the air conditioner that day? It had to have been the hottest convention I've ever attended... and the fact that it was in the high 80s that day didn't help. :drunk:

It's hosted by an ORLANDO anime club...It wasn't in Kissimmee in 2001....*shrug* it's all about location, yanno?

Ha ha! Yeah, in 2001 it was in Altamonte Springs (not "Orlando" either). Not one year in "Orlando" yet!

It sounds sorta like Anime Weekend Atlanta.. which I think hasn't always been in Atlanta. ^_^;

@_@'' i think thats a little possessed. the least they could do was name it after the city its in or even just another name. -_-'' only the gods know what they were thinking.

Not really, IdatenMiki. They originated in Orlando, right? It would be silly to change the event name everytime they have to move to a city. o_o; Unless this was their first year.. o.o

Maybe a possible solution would be hosting it in Orlando, then leaving it in one spot!

04-04-2003, 11:59 PM
Not to bring up an old topic, but it will be in Orlando this year.

04-05-2003, 12:02 AM
Hahahaha I just realized something.. Now that this was kicked back up.. It'd be AFK if it was named that. Ohhhh my. Yay net slang!

04-27-2003, 03:29 PM
Hmm... AFO does kinda have a ring to it, ne? I didn't go to AFO1, but at AFO2 the dealer's room got way too crowded. They're probably changing the venue to accomodate the growing anime crowd. This year, it'll be at the Wyndham Resort on I. Drive, and you can't get much more Orlando than that, ne?

Heh,,, AFK, that'd be funny.

05-01-2003, 07:16 AM
Wyndham resort? Nice. Less travel for meh. Not that any of the AFO's have been a terrible drive for me :)

05-02-2003, 09:51 PM
First in...somewhere. Dunno where didn't attend.
Second in Altamonte Springs, getting warmer.
Third in kissimmee, way cold.
Forth, finally Orlando. About time.

I gotta work this con (dealers), but its all good.

Just hope the AC works this time >.<

I guess ima hafta go to this one too ::sigh:: busy summer... ::counts cons on fingers::

07-23-2003, 03:29 PM
yea it will be definatley IN orlando this yr. in the forum title under is says kississamee because that was from last years. but hey we kinda got that lot about the location. but who cares it's worth it.

07-25-2003, 08:18 AM
It is amazing. The site says it is the longest hotel based anime con in Florida. And it is called Anime Fest Orlando (duh). But this is the first one in Orlando. Does anyone else find that ironic?
