WRISTBAND POLICY for Non-Florida Residents

Wristbands for Non-Florida Residents: If you have a family member who is dancing at NAIDC 2018, you have already paid admission, as part of your entries, so you DON’T need to pay admission. However, the Facility Usage Fee is in effect for this event and you must follow this policy to receive NAIDC wristbands. 

The cost of your entries and admission does NOT cover the cost of running the event. However, staying in one of our official NAIDC hotel blocks offsets more of the cost, so the committee can run an affordable event. Staying in one of the official NAIDC hotel blocks also reduces the room rates for all in attendance.

What are the wristbands for? To make sure this policy is well supported, we require everyone to stay in an official NAIDC hotel block in any of our host hotels, with the exception of Florida residents. Anyone who is not one of the above needs to pay a Facility Usage Fee, which costs $100 per person, per day to access the ballrooms. Wearing a WRISTBAND is proof that you are compliant with this policy.

Who needs a wristband? All attendees aged 8 and older (including dancers) Younger children do NOT need a wristband.

How do I get a wristband? You can pick up wristbands at the NAIDC Registration Desk.

Where is the NAIDC Registration Desk?The NAIDC Registration Desk is located on the left-hand side of the Main Lobby as you are heading toward the escalators to take you to the competition space.

What information do I need to pick up wristbands at the NAIDC Registration Desk?  

  • Please bring a copy of your hotel reservation that lists name of official NAIDC hotel, confirmation number, check-in date and check-out date. When checking in, you can also ask that the hotel print out a copy of your guest folio with this information on it.
  • Names/ages of those staying in your room (aged 8 and older)
  • Please note that the reservations will be checked against the official NAIDC Room Roster from each hotel

Where do I show my wristband? Wristbands will be checked at the door of every ballroom, as you enter, and at the top of the escalator leading to the competition areas.

Where do I get my wristband? You will pick up your wristbands at the NAIDC REGISTRATION DESK at the event, NOT at your hotel check in.  

When can I get a wristband? The NAIDC Registration Desk will open on the evening of Friday - June 29thand will remain open each day throughout the championships.

How long will the process take? While we will try to keep things moving, there may be long lines to pick up wristbands. Please try to pick up wristbands in advance of the morning you dance.

What if I plan on paying the $100 fee? You need to bring either CASH or US$ CHECK (with ID) made out to “NAIDC-IDTANA”. You should go to the NAIDC Registration Desk to pay the fee and receive wristbands.

How many wristbands will our family receive? You will receive one wristband for each person aged 8 and older, staying in your room(s). 

Do dancers get a wristband automatically? No, dancers need to provide proof, like all attendees, that their families are staying in an official NAIDC hotel block, OR that they are a Florida resident.  If you lose your wristband, you need to PAY for a replacement. (see below)

What if I am an adult dancer, unaccompanied by a family member? You will need to collect a wristband after showing proof of staying in an official NAIDC hotel block.

Do teachers get a wristband automatically? No, teachers need to provide proof, like all attendees, that they are staying in an official NAIDC hotel block, OR that they are a Florida resident.  Go to the TEACHER line at the NAIDC Registration Desk.

Are the wristbands the same every day? Wristbands remain the same color all week, so you only need one. Keep it on all week.

What if I lose my wristband? You will have to purchase a new one.

What if I am staying in an official hotel but outside the NAIDC block? You will be required to pay the Facility Usage Fee.

WRISTBAND Policy for Florida Residents

Clarification of Wristband Policy for Florida Residents (Updated 6.25.2018)

All Florida-residents who ARE a family member of an NAIDC competitor DO NOT pay an admission fee when picking up their wristbands at the NAIDC Registration Desk.

  • If you completed the online NAIDC Wristband form by June 22nd, your wristbands will be available at the NAIDC Registration Desk.
  • If you did not complete the online NAIDC Wristband Form by June 22nd, you will be asked to complete a form at the NAIDC Registration Desk to receive your wristbands. Please allow for ample time to pick-up your wristbands as there may be long lines.

 All Florida-residents who ARE NOT a family member of an NAIDC competitor must pay an Admission Fee of $25 per day at the NAIDC Registration Desk.

What if I am a full-time Florida resident? As you have the option of staying in your own home, rather than a hotel, you do NOT need to stay in an official NAIDC hotel block, and you will NOT be charged the facility usage fee.  However you WILL need to show a valid Florida ID (e.g. driver’s license, college ID) at the NAIDC Registration Desk, for every ADULT (and child over 17) in your family, to get your wristbands.Children aged 17 and under, do not need an ID, as long as they are accompanied by a family member with a Florida ID. You may bring government-issued proof of residency to the NAIDC Registration Desk or you may apply ahead of time by completing a google form proving residency (Go to the following link or paste the link into your browser to complete the form:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1oNBqZE2MZ8dNELoqBDT1k7kfzbriRFfvaCAKWfXl1Vs/edit?usp=sharing)

What if I am a PART TIME resident in Florida? If you have a residence in Florida (such as a holiday home), but not a Florida ID, you must apply to the committee in advance, to be recognized as a Florida resident, and thereby avoid the Facility Usage Fee. You must complete the request form by June 22nd 2018. It CANNOT be approved at the event.  Please note that this does NOT extend to time share properties. You need to own your property year round.
