Entry into the 501st Bash requires an event wristband. We highly advise getting your wristband in advance, along with your Bash gift bag, to avoid long lines at the door. You don’t want to miss anything at the Bash so don’t waste time standing in line! To get your wristband and gift bag you MUST bring your 501st Bash ticket with the QR code and ticket number. PayPal receipts are NOT tickets and we cannot look up your ticket on site. The ticket looks like this:
You can print out the tickets or save the ticket PDF to your mobile device. We recommend you do both if possible to make sure you don’t forget it. Once the QR code has been scanned the ticket is void, so do not lose it! If you need help retrieving your ticket from the website, see our Ticket Look Up Instruction page. One person can pick up multiple wristbands and gift bags as long as they have the tickets, so feel free to send a friend or family member to do this for you.
DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR PAPER TICKETS! The ticket number is also your Bash raffle ticket and you will need it to claim a prize during the Bash.
There will be several opportunities to pick up your wristband and gift bag in advance:
- Wednesday, April 12, 5 – 9 PM, at Uno Pizzeria (8250 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819)
- The first 501 people get an extra Bash doubloon this day only!
- Uno Pizzeria is donating 20% of their sales to the 501st Legion Make-A-Wish Endowment Fund, so stay to eat and raise money for charity!

Wristbands and gift bags can also be picked up at the Bash until 10 PM. Distribution will close at this time and any unclaimed wristbands and gifts bags will be forfeit.

- Lost wristbands will not be replaced.
- Tickets will not be sold on site.
