  1. I could be wrong but I thought they had posted that vaccines were required before the mailing cut off date. Either way, there are too many bad actors out there to just verify the vaccine status online. Sure it makes it tougher on everyone but unfortunately that is just how our society is.
  2. Yes, you will need to go through a line to get your vaccine verified. This is why mailing badges now is mostly pointless. There is still an initial line you need to go through either way so why bother.
  3. Is it known if the Meet and Greet sessions for the Concert VIP tickets include getting autographs as well? Thanks.
  4. It does state on the accessibility section on the website to bypass any line and go straight to a staffer to tell them you need to go to accessibility and they will get your badge and ribbon sorted out there. However, after you get your badge, even if you are not staying at the Marquis, it is usually much easier just to enter through the entrance there anyways.
  5. Not staff, but Otakon usually requires you to have an Accessibility ribbon to use the elevators. I have seen people with strollers use them but I don’t know if that is technically permitted or they just let that slide. Either way, you would not want to bring kids in today’s environment anyways. Check the Member Accessibility section on the Member Services section on the website. If she uses something to walk with that is proof enough but if not, try to get a doctor note close to the con. Finally, don’t plan on removing masks indoors unless it’s at a specific dining area.
  6. I have bought quite my fair share of Kitty DVDs from Media Blasters over the years and a lot of those do look suspect at times but I think that’s just how they were made.
  7. One major flaw that has to be addressed is they absolutely can not continue to keep scheduling autographs an hour after the dealer room opens if they are to continue to be held in the dealer room. It makes these sessions impossible to get into without camping the huge ass dealer room line each morning. Secondly, as far as I know, there is no special needs mobility policy to wait for the dealer room to open, because why should there be, you should not have a need to get in there to shop right away, this especially impacts people with those mobility disabilities. Even if you could get in early e
  8. Do you really think anyone is going to come around and police if you’re wearing a mask in your hotel room? Being in a hotel room really is not considered being in public so no, nobody is going to enforce you wearing a mask in a hotel room.
  9. Guidebook makes this a lot easier as you can mark things and then see “your schedule.” It will also tell you if you mark things that overlap. However, one thing that still hasn’t changed since the pandemic, it’s a week out and the Guidebook schedule still isn’t up. Sticking with tradition on that one I assume?
  10. Everyone flips their ---- over Nando’s way too much for it to be a viable option. You’re going to be waiting for a very long time.
  11. When the guidebook app schedule comes out definitely get that. That will have maps of the convention center in it.
  12. Will Funimation have their usual round of panels or will they not be around for a while?
  13. That is a lame excuse given the FIFTEEN dollar charge for the shipping, but with the envelopes they used I could see lanyards tearing those up.
  14. I’ve been parking at Shady Grove and riding in on the metro for years. No driving in the city and no obnoxious parking fees. I travel alone and don’t have cosplays so I can make that happen.
  15. If you want close and not outlandishly expensive your option is Subway. That’s it.
