Going to Florida Anime Experience? READ THIS FIRST!

When we get close to the convention, we get a bunch of emails, phone calls, tweets, and Facebook posts asking questions.  We do our best to respond, but when we’re in “show mode” it’s hard to get back to everyone in a timely manner.  So, here are the answers to most frequently asked questions we are getting…

BW Midori Sketching1. WHERE IS THE CONVENTION?

The convention takes place at the Park Inn by Radisson Resort & Conference Center Orlando located at 3011 Maingate Ln, Kissimmee, FL 34747.  It’s about 3 miles off of I-4 near Walt Disney World.

2. ARE TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE?

Yes!  You can buy a ticket to the event at the door.

3. HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS

$20 on Friday or Sunday.  $25 on Saturday.  $45 for a 3-Day pass.  Tax is included in the price.

4. HOW MUCH IS PARKING?

Free!

5. IS THERE A DISCOUNT FOR CHILDREN?

The event is targeted to be “all ages” and carries the lowest ticket price of this style event in Central Florida.  Thus, ticket prices are the same for all ages.  Children under 3 years of age, though, get in for free.

6. DO YOU TAKE CREDIT CARDS?

Yes – we accept credit cards at the Registration Desk.

7. WHEN DOES THE CONVENTION START/WHAT ARE THE HOURS OF THE CONVENTION?

The short answer is “around 11:00 AM each morning”.  The complete schedule is online here: www.floridaanime.com/schedule

8. I FORGOT TO REDEEM MY PROMO CODE/VOUCHER FROM A 3RD PARTY WEBSITE BEFORE THE 18TH.  CAN I JUST BRING IT TO THE REGISTRATION?

Unfortunately, no.  There are a couple of 3rd party websites that ran discount promotions for our event this year, but it states on the vouchers that all codes must be redeemed online before April 18th.  After that date, we export the attendee database to begin printing the badges and there is no way to check which codes were used or not.

We recommend you call the 3rd party website, get a refund, and buy a ticket at the door.

9. MY CHILD IS [AGE] YEARS OLD. WILL THERE BE ANYTHING FOR HIM/HER TO DO AT FLORIDA ANIME EXPERIENCE?

FAE is designed to be an all ages event with a variety of programming to appeal to those just learning about anime and Japanese culture to seasoned “otaku” who have been into it for years.  There are panels, workshops, video games, and much more for all ages.

10. HOW MUCH DO GUESTS CHARGE FOR AUTOGRAPHS?
All Florida Anime Experience celebrity guests sign up to two (2) items provided by attendees free of charge.  On occasion, some guests may sell items (prints, etc.) to sign.
