shanethvarosa asked: Will the VIP meet and greet with Schwarz Stein be on Friday or Saturday? I can't seem to find it on your schedule...

The meet-and-greet will take place on Saturday. You’ll receive additional vital information regarding the VIP meet-and-greet via e-mail.

realrandomsam asked: I apologize if this has already been answered, but I looked all over and couldn't find an answer. If we've preregistered, what time can we start picking up badges on Thursday? Thank you!

Pick-up should start at about 8:00pm.

diamondsdontlastforever asked: Hi I made a reservation at the hotel you hold the convention in but I saw something about paying for parking. Do I have to pay for parking if I have a reservation?

Yes, there is a fee associated with parking at the hotel, even if you have a reservation. When you check-in, the front desk associate will ask you if you have parked at the hotel. Please let the front desk associate know you are staying at the hotel for Anime USA 2014 and you will receive a discount.

cagood asked: I apologize if this has been asked- I saw on your webpage, " Regular memberships will also be available at the door and will be good for three days (Friday–Sunday), two days (ex: Saturday and Sunday) or just Sunday, depending on the date the badge was purchased." I have not been to Anime USA before and I am a little confused. Will there be day passes for just Saturday and how much will they be each day if you do have them. Thank you so much!

Hi,

We do not offer a day pass for Saturday. We have the following membership options:

  • All weekend
  • Friday-only
  • Saturday & Sunday
  • Sunday only

Have a great day!
