I signed up my son for a child wristband, then when trying to set up event tickets and get him set up, I was unable to because you cant participate on a children's wristband. (I kinda wish there had been verbiage about this when buying the child wristband but honestly. It's not a big deal.) Cool, not a big deal, other than the fact that there's no way to upgrade the wristband to any kind of badge.
I think that, it would be convenient, if you could, 'upgrade' your child wristband to a badge. Because I basically had to re-register him under a dummy account so that I could buy him a badge to participate.
Excited to be there in 24 days!
