Mine did ;D! Well for Thursday because I got lucky and booked the Fairmont from Friday - Monday after the site calm down. Then right after I called housing to put me on waiting list for Thursday May 22 and a week later I got it ;D.
Does anyone have this idea too? I have an idea about Pre-Reg Badge Pickup on Day Zero. If the line opens up around noon and stays open for most of the day it will reduce the line dramatically. I know that it will be challenging due to lack of staff, and it may be difficult due to time constraints. However, I believe it would be beneficial since it has been getting worse and worse every year by opening the pick up so late into the afternoon/ early evening. Opening earlier will be a convenience for some and staying open later will be a convenience for others.
Hello everybody, my wife and I have a suggestion for Fanime 2013. I've been talking to different local food trucks who would love to come out to Fanime for lunch and dinner services. They tried last year, but due to parking they had to leave early. So we hope that someone from Fanime Staff will see this thread to help bring the food truck to the convention. That way con goers can get some tasty treats for great prices. Please help get this noticed to invite them.
A lot of people that want to get a room want to stay at the Marriott or Hilton because its in the con and they don't have to walk anywhere else.
I'm so sorry if you guys are on waiting list because I got a room at the Fairmont and I live in San Jose. My wife and I want to get a room at Fanime because we want to get the full experience of the Con.
Pros: Check in was fast at the front desk. When we got up to the room me and my wife were amazed at how big and roomy the room was. My wife loved the vanity ( she did her lolita makeup) and the bathtub. I loved how there was side tables and a comfy chair for me to use my laptop. There was a nice flat screen tv that my wife used right away. Oh shit the bed was so soft my husband jumped in it and claimed he's sleeping spot immediately. We knocked out every night. Soft bed and pillows.
Cons: We had to keep calling for info about an earlier check in time since 3 was way to late for us to go. No free parking so parents couldn't come see us. We had to wait 10 minutes for them to bring our luggage to our room. Housekeeping was a bit lacking. They didn't restock everything. The room felt like it was in a maze in the far corner and my wife thought something scary would pop out. The door was messed up and it had a gap in far top left corner. No free internet my husband had to use his android hot spot. The shower and tub was a bit confusing to use. The garbage didn't have bags. The elevators were hell. On Monday we waited 5 minutes to get an almost empty elevator to fit all our luggage because the bellhop would have taken an hour to get it from our room.
Special Notes to Share: Really close to food and short walking distance from the con. Great room and view.
