MAKE SURE YOU ARE SIGNED UP FOR THE CORRECT MUSUEM. LOOK AT THE TAB.

Please read the post thoroughly. I get a lot of repeat questions when most of the info is already listed.

Locations
Washington, DC
600 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20560

Udvar Hazy
14390 Air & Space Museum Parkway, Chantilly, Va 20151

Shift Times
Thursday
First showing is at 6pm. You’re welcome to troop anywhere from 4pm-midnight.

Friday & Saturday
Primary shift times are 3:30pm-6:30pm and 6:30pm-9:30pm.
They welcome troopers coming early, just make sure you annotate your arrival time on the spreadsheet.

Blasters & Lightsabers
Blasters & Lightsabers are allowed.

Galactic Academy
GA members are allowed.

Changing Rooms
Washington, DC
New for this year. We will be getting dressed where the McDonald’s use to be. There will be a guard all day and night who will check your name against the sign-up sheet.

Udvar-Hazy
Same as last year’s location. Room above the theater.

Parking
To be on the parking list, please add your car/plate info by Dec 13th by 3pm. They are expecting us all day.

Washington, DC
For DC the parking lot is between the American Indian Museum and Air & Scare. You’ll see a little hut. Check in with the parking guard.

Udvar-Hazy
I reached back out with her to verify if we are going through the employee lot or what… Stand by.

Tickets
Costumers get 2 tickets. Added a column for pick up/email option. Please include your email if you’d like the tickets emailed or you’ll pick them up. They just ask for them not be used Thurs or Friday evenings. You can use them any time the Museums will be playing TLJ. Usually they have the movie until Jan/Feb.

POC
Holly Barringer will be the DC POC. She said she will be there in the evenings.
I will find out if we have a specific POC for Udvar-Hazy.

Accidents happen, but try and not to delete anybody out of the spreadsheet.

I'll be going to the Washington DC event, but will be there WAY early, like when the museum opens, because my husband will be dropping me off before work. Does anyone want to hang around and check out the museum before we do the event Smile I haven't been to that museum in about 12 years.

Hi there, I'm curious if the legions have special dispensation for prop lightsabers etc. Because I purchased tickets, I got an email email from the DC NASM that said the following:

"Costume Regulations: Costumes are permitted with the following restrictions:
Masks are prohibited for guests 16 years old and over.
Light Sabers must be soft plastic to be permitted.
Any movie props or "blasters" that resemble a gun will not be permitted at the full discretion of the security officers.
Security officers reserve the right to use their discretion when screening for safety inside the Museum and Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater."

My lightsaber isn't soft plastic. Should I leave it at home, or should I tell them I'm there with RL, or what?

Thanks!

-- Amelia

I got the same email. My blaster while definitely a plastic blaster can be mistaken for a firearm. Please advise.

Also any updates on the Hazy parking and POC.

Hi Kristin, which day are you attending @DC? I think the museum doesn't open until 10AM, first showing is at 10:30am, fri & sat. The earliest sign ups for Fri is around 2pm. I'll be at DC on Sat around 12 noon. Either way, there will be a guard at the changing room (where the food court used to be) entrance all day.

Hi Amelia, I dunno, but if you're trooping blasters and sabers are allowed, if you're just watching the movie I think blasters and hard sabers are banned within the theater, but if they give you a hard time you can leave your saber in our changing room. There will be a guard at the changing room entrance (former food court) all day.

Hi Randy, as replied to Amelia, if you're trooping blasters and sabers are allowed in the lobby, if you're watching the movie blasters and sabers are banned within the theater. That's a definite for DC NASM, it may be different at Udvar. So worse case if you're watching the movie before your troop just leave your blaster in our changing room just to be safe.

As for parking, the updated info on the GT forum is: Udvar-Hazy
You'll have to use the main parking lot entrance. Grab a ticket. If you need to leave before 6:30pm the guard will check your name on the list, so you don't have to pay. I see you're signed up for 4-9:30, so no worry, @9:30pm there wont be anyone at the pay booths when you exit.

As for POC, no word yet, guess we'll find out when we check in at our changing room who the POC is in order to get our comp tix.

We are exempt from the no lightsaber/blaster rule. Keep your blaster in your bin don't take it in with you when watching the movie.

Folks can pick up their vouchers at the box office at both locations.

Also their is no specific POC for Udvar. Just go to whatever staff member is on duty at the box office and they'll be able to help you.

I removed my husband and I. There is just no feasible way for us to attend. We have to be in NYC early Saturday morning.
