I know the announcement just hit but were there any plans for a hotel block like C7 or anything like that?

Well the official hotel from last time the Rosen Center is already sold out, and according to expedia a lot of the hotels that are listed as close to the convention center are sold out too or nearly so. I went ahead and booked a reservation with a pay later and free cancellation option, but geeze that went FAST!

I wouldn't worry too much about that, to be honest. I'm no one special, nor do I have any inside information, but I bet that those rooms aren't actually sold out. They probably just listed them that way to keep everyone from overloading the system with reservations. That's what I'd do, anyways...

It's good that you have a back up plan though. 8)

EDIT: Also interested in room block info.

OnPeak (the vendor Celebration uses) is allotted a limited block of rooms, and it's those rooms that are sold out.

If you are a member of a chain's rewards program, you may be able to book a room at one of those same hotels for a comparable rate.  For instance, I'm a member of Hilton's rewards program, and I got a similar rate at the Hilton that the link through the Celebration webpage.

I also got a lower rate at the Days Inn as a federal government employee (yes, I'm that guy who sits on hotel reservations on rooms that have generous cancellation policies; I like options).

You might also call the hotel directly and make a reservation through the hotel's staff (who may also get you a better rate than the website).

Another nice thing about Orlando is that there are a gazillion rooms in the area.  So even if you end up having to drive a little ways from International Drive, US-192 or even the Disney property, you can probably get a room at a not-too inflated rate (Celebration is also during Spring Break season, so there will be a little bit of a bump in price).

I'm hoping the block is where I'm already booked so I don't have to do anything.
