Don't forget your Early Entry passes!

We're noticing that many of you early-bird purchasers are forgetting to include the early entry passes in your ticket orders. As long as there are early entry passes available, you should add them to your orders -- one for each paid ticket. For now, we'll be reminding you, but hopefully not forever. Also, unless you are reserving an entire table of 6 or 8, please DON'T include table seat passes with your orders.
