ReedPOP Medical Assistance Program

The entire ReedPOP team is committed to making sure that all of our Fans have an amazing experience. Please take inventory of your needs as they pertain to attending the show. If you will benefit from any of the sections below, our Medical Assistance Program may be for you.

ReedPOP shows provide Medical Stickers to individuals who may have mobility, physical, vision, hearing, cognitive, psychological, invisible, or other types of disabilities. All fans with any disability are encouraged to apply for a medical sticker.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any Signings, Exclusives or seating for Programming and Special Events. Please plan to arrive early and speak with one of our Staff members in each area to check availability.

Regardless of the type of disability a fan may have, all fans who receive a medical sticker may enjoy the following, reasonable accommodations wherever they are available:

Exhibit Hall and Panel Wristbands:

  • NOTE: Those with medical stickers are required to have a wristband for all Galaxy Stage and Celebration Stage panels.
  • We have a dedicated queue space in the morning, pre-show queues to the Exhibit Hall for those with Medical Stickers requiring special assistance. Please note that this does not provide early access into the show.
  • There will not be separate queues for Medical Stickers for the Celebration and Galaxy Stage wristbands. Our wristband queues are ADA accessible.
  • We do allow a companion to wait in the wristband queues for those with Medical Stickers. This is the only exception to the one wristband per person rule. This companion, if he is holding his own badge plus the badge of the Medical Sticker holder, can pick up two wristbands at this time. Wristbands may not be transferred, and will not be replaced if lost or stolen.
  • If you are unable to wait in the overnight queue, we encourage you to ask a companion to do so on your behalf. Remember: your companion may retrieve your wristband on your behalf, as long as they present your badge, as well as their own, with accompanying medical stickers.
  • All companions must be at least 14 years of age.

Expedited panel and screening entry:

  • Priority seating (first entry) for Fans with a required wristband and Medical Sticker is available on a first come, first served basis.
  • All fans with wristbands and Medical Stickers should plan to arrive at the respective stage at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the panel or screening to take advantage of this offering.
  • Seating at all of our events is general admission, limited, and is first come first served. We ask all fans with Medical Stickers to please plan accordingly. Having a Medical Sticker does not guarantee you a seat in any panel. Seating is first come, first seated.

Autographing and Photo Ops:

Fans with Medical Stickers may have a designated companion wait in line in their place, and may rejoin once at the front of the queue. Fans with Medical Stickers who do not have a companion may speak with a staff member to facilitate a Line Placeholder for you.

Celebration Show Store:

Fans with Medical Stickers may use the queue lane designated “VIP and Medical Badge Queue” at the Celebration Show Store. Staff Members will be on site to help direct you to the correct queue. The “VIP and Medical Badge Queue” does not guarantee immediate entry to the store, but it should offer a reduced wait time in line. Fans with Medical Badges may have one companion join them in the “VIP and Medical Badge Queue.”

FAQs

Who should have a Medical Sticker?

ReedPOP shows provide Medical Stickers to individuals who may have mobility, physical, vision, hearing, cognitive, psychological, invisible or other types of disabilities. We offer a range of assisted services, if you have any questions after reading the below, please get in touch with us.

How do I get a Medical Sticker?

Online applications are now closed. You may still fill out Medical Sticker Applications onsite at the Medical Registration Desk.

Onsite: Please go to the Medical Assistance desk located at Registration and one of our staff members will be happy to assist.

This sticker identifies you to Staff, Crew and Security, and indicates that you may need additional assistance.
Please note that the Medical Sticker does not provide admission; you must have a valid Badge.

**Badges with Medical Assistance Stickers are for the use of one individual only throughout the course of Star Wars Celebration Orlando. Badges with Medical Assistance Stickers cannot be redistributed, resold or reallocated. Failure to comply with this will result in revocation of Badge without refund and the inability to attend future ReedPOP events. **

I have a mobility or physical disability, should I apply for a Medical Sticker?

If you answer "no" to any of the statements below or have any of the diagnosed conditions you will most likely require the assistance a medical sticker provides:

  • Are you able to move without the aid of an assistive device?
  • Are you able to walk 200 feet without stopping to rest?
  • Do you have any of the following diagnosed conditions?
  • Significant limitations in the lower extremities.
  • Any disease or disorder that substantially impairs mobility due to a neurological, arthritic or orthopedic condition.

Can a Medical Sticker be provided to a companion?

Fans that receive the Medical Sticker will also be provided with an additional Sticker for one companion. Please note that the Medical Sticker does not provide admission, and your companion must have a Badge. Medical Stickers do not grant early access to the Show Floor. We cannot guarantee access into Panels, Autographing and Special Events or the ability to skip lines.

I have a hard time standing for long periods of time. Do you provide assistance for queuing to enter the show?

We have a dedicated queue space for those with Medical Stickers requiring special assistance or mobility requirements for arrival before show opening. Please note that this does not provide you early access into the show.

Will this sticker help me get seating in Panels and Screenings?

We provide priority seating for Medical Sticker Fans as available, please be aware that all seating for Panels and Screenings are on a first come, first served basis and we cannot guarantee seating for everyone.

A Fan with a Medical Sticker should plan to arrive to a Panel at least 30 minutes prior to the advertised show time. For all large or popular events please plan to arrive at least 45 minutes prior.

Keep in mind that all of our events are very popular and we want to make sure that you get to see what panel is important to you, so plan accordingly.

What about Autographing and Photo Ops?

The Medical Sticker does not allow priority access to signings at the convention. Autographing Guests often sign for limited amounts of time, and to be fair for all attendees, the Medical Sticker does not allow an attendee to bypass any autographing lines.

If you have a companion, they may wait in line for you. If you do not have a companion, please speak with one of our Staff so that they can facilitate a Line Placeholder for you. We ask that you wait to the side and do not leave the queue area. When your spot reaches the front of the line, you may rejoin for your signing.
