What day is my ticket good for ?

Your ticket is only good for the date you selected, not the entire weekend. One day is plenty of time to finish your magical journey.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

We accept mobile tickets as well, but you must have either the printed or mobile ticket. Once your ticket is scanned, it will cast a spell not allowing it to be scanned again, so do NOT lose your magical passport we give to you at check-in.
