Official Programming Schedule:

Friday, September 10:

6:00pm – 8:00pm – Early Attendee Pick-up – STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!
Pre-ordered passes are available for pick up on Friday, September 10, 2021 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. All items for which you’re eligible must be picked up at the same time (passes, t-shirts, exclusives, redemption tickets). If you pre-ordered your convention pass, we encourage you to please pick up your items on Friday evening. If you cannot pick up pre-ordered passes on Friday evening, you may do so starting at 8:00am on Saturday.

6:00pm – 8:00pm – Early Toy Exclusives Pick-up – STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!
The Toy Room (located in Pacific Ballroom A), is where you will pick up your pre-paid exclusives. You must FIRST check in at Registration and get your passes and other items. You will also be given your redemption tickets during Registration check-in. At the Toy Room, you must present your redemption tickets, photo ID or passport, and then fill out and sign the release agreement before you can claim your exclusives. Given that this process is slower than Registration check-in, we encourage you to do this on Friday night if you are present at the hotel. Lines WILL be cut off promptly at 8:00pm. If you are in line when this happens, please return at a later time during the convention when the Toy Room is open.
