Got mine but now i have a question will my card get charged anything right now or till later when it's closer to the con?
You wont be charged until closer to con, some hotels take deposit up to 3 weeks before check in.

I could be mistaken. I thought I saw someone share a 68000 number but everyone else I've seen has been  in the 69000 range

I think they started in the 68000s, so the closer you are to that number the higher your chances of first bracket presumably.
If you dont cause any damages or take anything out of the mini fridge you'll get that money back. It can take a few days though and you wont have those funds available during the weekend. 
They added an extra performance to Sunday evening. Tickets go on sale at 10am, however the Fanime discount code has expired
It was announced on Facebook and Twitter that Swap Meet sign ups will open at 12 noon tomorrow (Saturday 28th)
Dealers still sell some Fruits Basket merch, though not as many booths were selling manga last year as there were in years past.

You might want to update the hotel list, Ramada is not an offered hotel this year and there are more options availiable by the airport.
Hotel and Facilities / No Parking Discounts This Year?
January 12, 2018, 07:44:57 AM
Taking a look at the hotel information and noticed parking is much more expensive for all hotels this year. In the past it's usually been a 50% discount on parking for Fanime guests, was that not part of the contract this year?

I also got the 17th at 7am.
I wonder how many people are in each time slot? To have fit everyone who registered between Nov 7th - Jan 8th into 3 days

You'll likely be day 2 or day 3 hotel block, still before general public but I wouldnt hold out too much hope for a full weekend stay within walking distance. Waitlist is always an option and many people have had success with it.

If distance is the most important thing for you, and you can afford it, I would look into booking one of the hotels not set aside for Fanime, like Hotel de Anza or Four Points Downtown. They'll be quite a bit more expensive, but less stress when booking.

Finished 2 minutes past Noon, so I am pretty happy with my spot. On the slip side I don't know how my other mates did, and one of the guys that said he was going to take care of a Room this year had not done so 6 hours after reg opened up (he probably didnt know how competitive getting rooms is). Well I at least have my reg to guarantee a room most likely
6 hours? Yikes. Gone are the days of waiting days or weeks after housing goes up and still being confident you can get a room.

I wish I had thought to check facebook or twitter first, I think that's what I ended up doing last year, but at least there was no slowdown once I got to the reg page.

So how was everyone's registration experience? I tried the website first which crashed as expected. Found the direct link on facebook and was able to complete reg by 12:05, so hopefully early enough for first housing window.
Registration / 2018 Reg Opens Nov 7th

Reg for 2018 - Nov 7th @ Noon PST

New for this year:

Club Registration for large groups who need a single invoice for registration

No more Group Registration

Register for a Child Badge online instead of on-site
That's really a very neat idea.
I will gladly trade the mob of angry reglious protesters telling me I'm going to hell for a handful of food vendors, hands down.

Can anyone please tell me if Thursday night swap meet is badge free?
No badge needed to shop on Thursday, only to sell

Clockwork Alchemy (as far as I know) takes place entirely in the Double Tree Hotel. Fanime however is spread out over several buildings including the convention center proper, South Hall (swapmeet), the Fairmont Hotel (panels), Civic Center Auditorium (musicfest, masquerade), and Parkside Hall (Black & White Ball).

I believe they try to make waitlist is first come first serve. I hope something comes through for you.

I'm actually still waiting on my rooms. I'm guessing the later you waitlist, the less priority you get for your rooms? Hilton, Marriot, and Westin were my choices
