FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR VIP BUNDLES

Is dinner free?

With the Gold level VIP Bundle, a portion of the cost goes to cover your dinner with Mr. Fehr. Dinner includes an entrée, dessert, and a non-alcoholic beverage.

Are drinks with dinner free?

Your Gold Level VIP Bundle includes a non-alcoholic beverage with dinner. CoastCon will not provide any alcoholic beverages. You are welcome to purchase them on your own, should you choose to do so and if you are over 21 years of age.

Where is dinner?

Dinner will be at Bacchus in Biloxi, on the corner of Highway 90 and Caillavet Street, across from the Beau Rivage.


What is it?

Bacchus offers a wide selection, including poultry, steak, seafood, po-boys, and burgers. They have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. http://www.bacchusinbiloxi.com/

Is there a vegetarian option?

CoastCon does not discriminate in any way when it comes to dietary restrictions. There are meat options, seafood options, poultry options, gluten free options, vegan options, and vegetarian options available.

What if I don't like it or can't make it for the night of the meal?

Unfortunately, as with all party planning, once the ticket is purchased, CoastCon is counting on your attendance in order to make the reservation at the dinner. If you cannot attend the dinner for any reason, then this portion of your package would go unused.

Is the only way I get a photo-op is if I buy a VIP Bundle?

Mr. Fehr will be available for photo ops and autographs to the membership of CoastCon at large. Gold and Silver VIP Members get preferred access, however.

Is it the only way I get an autograph?

Mr. Fehr will be available for photo ops and autographs to the membership of CoastCon at large. Gold and Silver VIP Members get preferred access, however.

What happens if Mr. Fehr is unavailable and can't make the con? Do I get the same package with his fill-in?

If Mr. Fehr is unable to attend, CoastCon will make every effort to have the same Bundle available with his replacement. If the replacement is not available for these activities for any reason, then CoastCon will allow a refund of the VIP Bundle except the CoastCon membership that is included with both Bundles.

What is the refund policy since the bylaws say we do not give refunds?

CoastCon bylaws do not permit refunds of the membership portion of the Bundle, but the rest of the Bundle will be refunded in the event of cancellation by the Guest of Honor. Alternately, memberships can be transferred to the following year (not the VIP Bundle, just the membership portion).

Are all the guests invited?

In order to provide a more personal and one-on-one experience with Mr. Fehr, only Mr. Fehr, his representative, his CoastCon liaison, the Guest Liaison and 10 Gold VIP members will be at the VIP dinner.

Do I get specialty parking with my VIP Bundle so I can make the panels on time?

As CoastCon does not control the parking lots at the Coliseum, we cannot provide any specialty parking. Your VIP Bundle does, however, give you 30 minutes early entry into the convention so that you can come early and get a good parking spot before everyone else gets here.

What if I have preregistered already, but I want to buy a VIP Bundle?

If you are interested in the VIP Bundle, you will be given a coupon code to purchase a VIP Bundle less the membership fee that you paid for preregistration.
