    That is odd. I assumed there would be a non-member lanyard. Maybe they hand them out there...? I dunno. It's too bad you & your wife will be seperated at some times & attractions. :(

    It's probably BYOL as it appears a fan club lanyard is the method they're using to tell members from non-members. You can order 1 pass per week and get a lanyard with it (due to the 1 per week lanyard limit) and that would take care of it but it's a little late for you now (and me as well, 3 passes, 1 lanyard).

    I thought the fan club lanyards were supposed to be yellow... what's the deal?

    Yellow, Why Yellow?

    It is for each membership, you get a Lanyard. Not per badge purchased, Makes sense to me.

    You can always buy an lanyard. I have seen then for sale for a few bucks.

    Likely wait a week or so between purchasing your pass as the lanyard is limited to one per week. This means you buy one ticket and lanyard, wait a week, buy another ticket and lanyard. Rinse. Repeat until you have all the passes with lanyard's you need.

    Actually, that is not correct. The distribution of lanyard is not based on time, but strictly on membership. One fan club lanyard is given out with each membership regardless of the number of passes you buy.

    If you go back in one week or one month and you have already received a member lanyard, you won't get another. The only way to receive additional fan club lanyards is to open a new membership with a different email account (as that is how they track it online).

    Yah, whojedi[/i]'s right. You want to know how?

    Well, my dad (who's not a member) is able to get a lanyard by paying the $30 that you would need to pay for a second subscription. BUT! Instead of receiving 2 magazines to one house, which is plain ol' retarded, $20 worth of the subscription goes toward another year of subsciption (and therefore membership because I started my subscription before Wizards took over) added on to the subscription I currently have and the remaining $10 worth I got as a gift certificate at [link=http://swfan.wizards.com]SWFan.Wizards.com[/link]!!! For $10 I can buy an action figure! :)

    Now my dad and I both get into the SWCII special member events, I get another year on my subscription (which I would have gotten anyways) and I get $10 worth of gift certificates to spend on Star Wars stuff! How can you beat THAT?

    :D

    Hope that helps you all!

    I got mine via UPS yesterday. Now, I've got to go buy a fireproof, shockproof, radiation-proof, armored, titanium alloy vault to keep it in until next May.

    Just wondering, all of you who have been getting yours lately, when did you order them? My dad and I ordered ours on the 17th and they're still not here (I sorta expect them tomorrow though). So I would just like to know how many days it took for your lanyards/passes to arrive after you ordered them. :)

    Does anyone who's on the single day passes?
    Has anyone bothered getting a single day pass?

    Does anyone know when they're actually going to start posting information? How dumb is it to put passes on sale, and not have ANY info on what's going to happen that weekend.

    I'm going to get my wife a one day pass, but we decided to wait until she decides which day she wants to attend.

    In addition to all of the three day passes I ordered, I got an extra Saturday pass and I will post a picture or description when I get it. Should be first of the week.

    UPS doesn't deliver on Saturday, do they? :(


    BTW, does it seem weird that I ordered my pass on the 17th and I still don't have it?
