Q: Where and when do I check-in to receive my tickets and merchandise?
A: We will have a separate Travel Package check-in at the hotel– this is where you will pick up your tickets, credentials and any additional merchandise.

Please be sure to bring valid photo identification when checking in.
Q: Are room upgrades available?

Guests are responsible for confirming all details and paying the hotel directly for all associated upgrade charges.
Q: Can I add additional nights to my Hotel Package?
A: For additional nights, please book an independent reservation for those nights in the same type of room (same bed type) with the hotel directly. Please contact us with the new reservation number and your CID Entertainment order number, and our hotel team will work to combine your stay. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 888-805-8930.
Q: Can more than two people stay in a hotel room?

Q: Can we check in early to the hotel? Will the hotel hold our bags if our room isn’t ready? I wanted to get to the festival ASAP?
A: Standard hotel check-in times apply across all of our hotels. However, we have communicated with each of our hotels and they have assured us that they will do everything in their power to get our rooms in as early as possible.
