This year, MEGACON Orlando has equipped your badge with the amazing powers of a state-of-the-art RFID (radio frequency identification) chip! The RFID tag has already been attached to your badge and allows us to fight counterfeiting and make sure that every badge is valid for entry to MEGACON Orlando 2019. By activating your badge you are protecting it if it is lost or stolen.
To activate your badge:
- Visit megaconorlando.com/activate.
- Enter your activation code found on the left side at the bottom of the back of your badge and complete the questions.
- Tap your badge at the entry and exit points.
Badges are to be worn visibly for the duration of your visit to MEGACON Orlando. If you are coming for multiple days, you must keep your badge on your person for those days.
For any questions or special concerns about wearing your badge, visit our Customer Service Desk in MEGACON HQ in the Ticketing Hall – South Hall B at the event.

SAFETY & SECURITY
The safety and security of our fans, exhibitors, guests and staff is our priority. Please plan ahead and note the following guidelines to help us deliver a safe and fun experience for everyone.
Our Props Policy can be read in its entirety here, but the top-line info is:
- If it’s not legal on the street, it is not legal at the MEGACON Orlando. Authorities will be on-site to deal with any illegal items.
- Metal props (replica guns, swords, knives, etc.) are strictly not allowed. Plastic props are typically allowed.
- Bows (including crossbows), and slingshots are to be unstrung. Nerf guns and other foam bullet-type toys are not to be loaded.
The final decision on whether a prop is allowed inside MEGACON Orlando rests with the Security and the Orlando Police. There are NO refunds given if you are turned away for not complying with our policies.
Bags are permitted and are subject to being searched. Everyone entering the convention center will be screened at Bag Check. Your entry will be faster if you do not have a bag. You will need to go through Bag Check each time you enter the venue, even if you exited for just a quick moment. Backpacks are allowed but will take longer to screen. Please note that outside food is not permitted inside the facility.
Please view our dress code here.
COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT
If you would like to take a picture with/of another MEGACON Orlando attendee, always ask first and respect that person's right to say no.
When at MEGACON Orlando, please be respectful and kind to each other.
