Prioirty wristbands

This year will be my first time getting a hotel room. I saw that SC is still doing their prioirty wrist bands. Since I've never gotten them before, I was wondering where exactly you pick them up and what they need to give you the wrist bands. Thanks!

I was wondering this too. I forgot last year. Also, if I have roomies how do you know they are in the room? All the hotel needed was my name and the number of people in the room but didn't ask for names..how would they get wrist bands

Hi I can answer this

What happens is that they get all the registered hotel attendees and have you all in a record

The max you will get is 4, so if your room contains more than 4, good luck sharing these are stuck to you

If i recall on friday you go to the desk where you get the adult stamp with ID and get them there

Hope that helps!

Ok that's all well and good, but if the hotel never asked for names of the other people, then how do you know they are staying in one? The way you are putting it, it sounds like you just go up and say "I'm staying at so and so gimmie a band" but anyone could say that..How do we verify staying at the hotel? I have 3 people not on the hotel list and then my on the list..My name is the ONLY name on the hotel stuff..

Im not sure, but I think you just call the hotel and give them the names of the people staying with you, so they can register them staying in the room. Thats what the guy who booked our hotel room did so we can get the wristbands.

Can you still use a priority band if you switched your hotels? I recently cancelled the hotel I booked through Sakura Con and booked in at the Sheraton through Expedia a) because it was closer and b) because it was cheaper... does that screw me over for this thing though?

yeah I think so. I'm pretty sure they'll only do it if you booked through the Sakuracon website.
