DCC’17 PSA: New Entry Location, Single Registration Location, and Bag/Prop Checks for 2017

Hey DCCers, we have three big changes involving entry this year, so please read this post carefully! You can send questions to info@popcultureclassroom.org.

UPDATE: We now have an entry map to help you find where to go when you arrive! Click the button below to view and download:

1. The Main Entrance for the Con Has Changed This Year

The main entrance for single-day and three-day badge holders will be at the “Bellco Theater Entrance” on the SPEER BOULEVARD side of the Convention Center.

2.  There Will Be Only One Registration Location This Year

This is where you go to exchange your tickets for badges or to buy new tickets onsite. If you’re wondering where “Will Call” is, this is it. The single Registration area will be in the Lower B Lobby on the Welton Street side of the Convention Center. Note that we’ve had a Registration area in this location each year of the con.

3. Our Security Team Will Be Doing Bag and Prop Checks This Year for Everyone’s Safety

We will begin the entry process earlier than in past years because of the increased time required for checks. There will be two entry lines, one for people who have bags or props, and one for those who don’t. There will be multiple bag check lines. Full disclosure: The line for bag and prop check will be much slower than the other line, so if you want to get in as fast as possible, leave your bags and props at home if you can. More on that in another recent blog post HERE

  1. I have a couple of questions, for bag checks, does this include purses? Do speed pass holders have a different line for bag cheks? And do speed pass holders also go in through the bellco theater entrance? Thank you

  2. I purchased the 3 day pass. Can I pick up badges on Thursday before so I don’t have to wait in line on Friday? And also how can I buy a child’s ticket. The web sight says it had to be purchased with an adult ticket. I already bought mine but now my sister wants to go. Please help
