Getting to New Orleans
This should be the easiest part. A good majority of fans, some will drive, and a few will get here by train.
If driving, you will eventually come to the Crescent City using I-10 west or east. Please consider using mapquest for specific directions.
Air Tran, American, Continental, Delta, Express Jet, Jet Blue, Nrothwest, Southwest, United, and US Airways offer service to New Orleans (MSY). Some flying in will rent a car and we have all the major car rental companies. Making flight and car reservations as soon as possible is stronly recommended. You can save over $200.00 on some of the least expensive flights out of New Orleans if you can wait till Wednesday to fly out. I also found better deals by attempting to book separate one way flights instead of round trips. It won't hurt to try. I used priceline and sidestep to get a gauge on pricing.
Below are ways to get to your hotel.
These rates below are believed to be current and reliable, but can not be guaranteed.

(CBD) for one or two persons and $12.00 (per passenger) for three or more
passengers. Pick-up is on the lower level, outside the baggage claim area.
There may be an additional charge for extra baggage. $1 fuel surcharge added to
Airport Shuttle: Shuttle service is available from the airport to the hotels in the CBD for $13.00 (per person, one-way) or $26.00 (per person, round-trip). Three bags per person. Call 1-866-596-2699 or (504) 522-3500 for more details or to make a reservation. Advance reservations are required 48 hours prior to travel for all ADA accessible transfers. Please call well enough in advance for the specially-equipped shuttle to be reserved. For group reservations of 10 or more people please dial 1-866-596-2699. Ticket booths are located on the lower level in the baggage claim area. $2 fuel surcharge added to total fare.
I prefer the shuttle because the drivers tend to be friendlier, there's more room in the van, and it is cheaper. If you are with a big group, then this is the best way to go since the driver will only make one stop.
