Do vendors only take cash? Will there be an ATM?
Most vendors will be able to take both cash or card transactions on purchases made in the Vendor Room, however, we recommend having cash anyway if wifi signals are unclear or if a vendor’s card processing capabilities are limited. Yes, there will be an ATM near the lobby of the hotel, but we still recommend bringing additional cash if and when it is completely emptied.
How come ____ guest isn’t here?
The House of Mouse Expo staff has worked hard to bring special guests that represent a diverse array of fandoms and to interact with our attendees. They are here for you so please take time to visit with them and thank them for their time and participation. Each guest has their own dealings on autographs and pictures so don’t hesitate to ask! If you have special guest requests in the future, we’re always listening.
