Then you’re ready to Expo! But— are you? Did you remember the all-important step of activating your 2019 D23 Expo badge?
Here’s what you do to cross that final process off your D23 Expo to-do list.
Step 1: Get Your Badge From D23 Expo
This should have arrived in the mail- or should be arriving ASAP.
Don’t panic if you didn’t get it; you can still register online and activate your badge (see link on D23 Expo FAQs). You can also pick up a new badge if needed when you arrive at D23 Expo. But here’s the basics straight from D23 Expo communications.
My D23 Expo badges haven’t arrived yet and I’m concerned I won’t be able to participate in online reservations. What should I do?
Please visit D23Expo.com/Activate to look up your badge number using your purchase Confirmation ID and email address used to purchase tickets.
Once you retrieve your badge numbers, you can then activate their badge and participate in online reservations on Friday, August 16.
If you do not receive your badges before you have to depart for D23 Expo, you can visit D23 Expo Will Call at North Hall Level 200 at the Anaheim Convention Center when you arrive to have a new badge issued. Please bring your purchase Confirmation ID# or email confirmation as well as a photo ID. All reservations that you have made and confirmed will transfer to your new badges.
