  • What time on Friday do they start accepting people to get their badges? Me and a group are leaving sometime Friday morning and want to get there around that time frame

  • I'd say get there very early. I saw that the line was mighty long.

  • Last year, I got to the hotel around 11-12 in the afternoon and had no issues picking up my badge (I pre-registered, for what it's worth). It took me all of five minutes.

  • Can we pick up badges on Thursday?

    That line was stupid last year; I preregistered and it still took forever.

  • You can pre-order your ticket/badge on the main Magfest page until Midnight Sunday.

    And yeah, I'm glad I got there early last year, I seem to remember the badge line lasting most the first day due to many arriving at once.

  • I pre-registered way back in October. I'm assuming there is a line for people who registered and a line for buy-at-the-door. I don't know when these lines open, but you can bet the pre-reg one will be shorter, or at least move a lot faster.

  • it'll start thursday.

    the nasty line last year was only for a few hours on thursday, and was due to a technical fuckup. its never happened before at the gaylord for us, and hopefully will never happen again. we try to keep the line under 30 minutes, and we succeed 95% of the time.
