    So if you have 4 passes linked to your e-mail and you won the lottery for a panel, shouldn't you have 4 panel tickets? Because all Growtix shows for me is 3 panel tickets for the Thursday Celebration stage.

    I had to register each ticket for the lottery. I registered 2 tickets and got 2 win per event. If you look at the tickets in Growtix it shows the name registered with each ticket.

    I went through the app today and made myself a tentative schedule now that the lottery is over. Over the four days I picked around 20 different panels. I might skip one or two a day to get lunch, but otherwise this Celebration is going to be packed with interesting panels.

    It sounds like I was 0-4. I am not sure how that is possible, but it is certainly ridiculous.

    I have a VIP and 4 day badge registered under my email. When I entered last week it showed that I had two entries I could enter for each day so I entered both. One entry I used my email account and the second entry I entered my friends name.
    Growtix shows I won two entries, one is showing General entry for (my email) and the other is showing General entry for (my friends first name). After I entered I received an email notification that I entered but only one email so I assumed they intentionally removed one of the entries because it was a mistake. So I am still confused but it looks like I have two valid entries for the morning panel.

    I feel your pain man! I feel like they should balance it out somewhat instead of being straight up “random”. Like if you put in for all 4 you should at least get one in celebration arena and one in a streaming room. Where as I’m sure theres people who got every thing they put in for. Not getting even one panel is certainly the cherry on top for a underwhelming celebration year. It’s very telling that there’s people who can’t even sell their 4 day passes for less than cost now.

    Star Wars Is Good suggested logging in to our GrowTix account. Some have not received an e-mail yet, but they have found salvation in their GrowTix account. I do not believe that I have an account. I never created one. I will try to figure it out later.

    If you don't have one, just create one with the right email address.

    If anyone wants to trade, I have 4 Lights and Magic and 4 Bad Batch, both on the Twin Suns stage, and I'm looking for the Mando+ panel.

    I have two Lights and Magic on the Celebration stage for Friday that I don't need.
    Leaving today for Anaheim and should be available after 5pm today to give you the print outs if you will use them.

    I was reviewing the Lightspeed Reservation procedure on the Celebration website. Does anyone know whether one person could reserve seat(s) for a group - for example, I bought tickets for 5 people) or does each individual need to enter a reservation request for themselves?

    I was wondering the same thing. I am telling everyone in my group to download the app just to be safe.

    I'm seeing people say in Chicago there was a small standby line for the first lotto panel of the day. Was that a thing or people blowing smoke? It does mention 15 minutes before your seat is forfeited on our barcode...

    They definitely say there is a standby line this year, but I imagine you have to get there real early.
    -------
    The first panel of the day on the Celebration Stage will be for pre-selected participants only. If you have not been selected for admission to this panel, you may still try to attend via the stand-by line. To access the stand-by line for the first panel of the day, you must queue in Hall E prior to 10:00 AM. At 10:00 AM the Hall E line will be released and you can proceed to the Hall A Celebration Stage queue

    Oh jolly! Debate debate for if I do that or the live stage now then...I assume I'd have to be there at like 6am to be at the front, early drive down from the Valley.

    You could also queue for the standby of one of the streaming stages, I imagine most would be trying for the Celebration stage so you might have a better chance at one of those.

    Here is the simple solution, no ,machines or selections and regrets, first come first serve, standing in the old fashioned lines-in person! no headaches about strange schedules, winners, or times- just get in the line for your panel- finished.

    That's actually a very smart idea! Previous years the special footage was shown at the streaming stages too, right? Ala First Mando Trailer. So that solves any exclusivity thing right there.

    But unless they block people from camping out overnight, we're back to that same situation again and not everyone is physically able to do that.

    Yeah, they're not going back to the overnights for the major panels. Those days are gone now.

    If anyone wants to see Lights and Magic and didn't get it in the lottery, I have a couple of codes for the Twin Suns stage my group decided not to use. Let me know and I'll send them to you!
