Schedule & Escape Rooms

Greetings!

Can you believe that 3 Fridays from now, we’ll be at Mysterium?

The closer it gets to Mysterium, the more I get asked “So what’s happening at Mysterium?” Sometimes people want the specific schedule, and sometimes people just want to know the kind of events we run. Today, I’m excited to announce the completed schedule. You can check it out here!

You can also check out the schedule in more detail, including event descriptions, via our Guidebook at https://guidebook.com/guide/100590/schedule/#date/08-04-2017.

Just looking at the schedule is making me excited. Mysterium is so close, and I can’t wait to see you all there.

Escape Rooms

Just like last year, we have partnered with a local escape room business to book several rooms for attendees. It’s even easier this year, because the escape rooms are just across the street from the Mysterium hotel! Tickets are limited, and we expect them to go quickly, so don’t wait to get yours over at the registration page.

And remember, if you haven’t registered yet, pre-registration closes in just a week!

Cyan and More

As a reminder, Cyan will be streaming a live Q&A at Mysterium. If you have a question you’d like to ask them, you can submit it here: https://goo.gl/forms/xGBKW3x5gVDFSn7G3.

And now, here’s the list of what Drew is most looking forward to in Orlando:

  • Traveling the furthest South I’ve ever been
  • Seeing the WWAB creations
  • Catching up with attendees
  • Pool time
  • Getting a sneak preview of Cyan’s new home decor product line that’s supposed to be so stunning, it’ll make your guests feel like they’ve been transported to another world.

Cyan Q&A

Greetings All!

This year at Mysterium, we’ll be having a live Q&A stream with members of Cyan’s Obduction team, and that means we need questions for them! So if you have a burning question you’ve been longing to ask Cyan, now is your chance. Just follow this link and fill out the form: https://goo.gl/forms/xGBKW3x5gVDFSn7G3

You can submit as many questions as you want, and all topics are welcome. That said, the main focus of the Q&A will be on a post-mortem of Obduction’s development so far, so we’re especially looking for Obduction related questions.

Questions will be accepted until Sunday, July 23rd.

Registration and Hotel

Quick reminder that registration will remain open until next Friday, July 21st. Also, if you still need a hotel room and haven’t booked one yet, we may be able to get you a room at our convention rate. Please see here for details: http://www.mysterium.net/location/#hotel

Other Bits

If you are planning to visit any of Disney’s parks while you’re in Orlando, I highly recommend getting your tickets now so that you can sign up for Disney’s FastPass service. It’s free, and it lets you skip the line at popular rides, but the slots fill up well in advance!

Finally, continuing our showcase of what committee members are most looking forward to in Orlando, here’s mine:

  • Way too much sugar at this place across the street from the hotel (https://sugarfactory.com/location/orlando/)
  • Seeing my Myst family
  • Fancy afternoon tea at a fancy Disney hotel
  • Defending Esher and Myst V to anyone and everyone! … as usual

Stay tuned for more info later this week!

Preparing for Orlando

Shorah Mysterium attendees!

It’s only a couple weeks until Mysterium! I’ve seen a few people on Facebook ask for ideas on what to bring to the convention. So, as someone who has attended quite a few conventions and is a native of the Sunshine State, I thought I’d put together a handy list of suggestions of what to bring. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Forget To Book Your Hotel!

Shorah all!

 

We want to remind everyone who’s planning to attend that the last day to book a guaranteed room in our block at the hotel is Monday, July 3! If you haven’t reserved your room yet, check out our locations page for more info about the hotel, or go straight to our booking page here.

If you’ve already got your room but are staying longer than the convention runs, have you requested your extension? You can book online for Thursday the 3rd through Tuesday the 8th, but you’ll need to use our extension form to request a longer stay.

The committee can’t believe Mysterium is only 5 weeks away.

The committee has been putting together a list of what they’re most looking forward to at Mysterium. My list is:

  • Seeing all my Mysterium friends
  • The theme for this year’s version of WWAB (it’s gonna be great!)
  • The Mysterium pool parties
  • Visiting EPCOT!
  • Being back in my home state again – ahh, sunshine

 

Can’t wait to see you soon,

Location Guide Updates

Shorah!

Two weeks ago, we posted a quick overview of major attractions in the Orlando area that you might want to check out while you’re at Mysterium. Today, we’re unveiling our more detailed location guide.

The guide should help you get acquainted with Orlando before Mysterium happens. We have a section on transportation options and how to get to the hotel from wherever you arrive in the city. We’ve got an expanded list of attractions you might want to visit – not just theme parks, we’ve got some museums and cultural attractions in there too. I know some people were planning theme park trips on our Facebook page, so if you want to go with others, try asking there. If you’re looking to bring home some souvenirs, we’ve listed places to shop. There’s also a local’s guide to great places to eat, including a few places for people with special dietary needs (like your con chair).

We hope this helps you plan your trip. If you’ve got any questions, please leave a comment or drop us an email. The chairs are happy to help you plan for a magical Mysterium!

As always, we’re looking forward to seeing you in Orlando!
