I'm driving the four/five hours (depending on traffic) and then driving back home. Or staying with a friend that lives in the LA area. No help to you, I know. I'm not aware of any travel packages, or even an on-sale date.
There was a little bit of discussion on W about this here (The W).
I would think that if you want to attend all the events & have the money to spend on it, go for it! You do get guaranteed tickets for the show, rather than having to scramble at TicketMaster. (Hint: Ticketmaster was a nightmare for Judgement Day last May, & that was an SD-only PPV, which sold out.) And I'd pretty much agree with Mr Shh's cost breakdown in the previous thread. Go for it!
Steph was advertised in recently for a house show next month as being part of the Smackdown roster, which would suggest that they may have had some plans along these lines to be implemented soon. They do seem desperate to move him over to RAW.
