The Las Vegas Convention Center does not allow outside food and drinks to be brought into events. However, should an attendee have dietary restrictions then they are allowed to bring in food as needed for their specific dietary needs. Additionally, sealed water bottles, clear (empty) plastic reusable bottles, or empty insulated water bottles may be brought into the main hall to utilize water bottle filling stations available inside.

Updated July 18, 2023 to include empty insulated water bottles.

Any other food or drinks from outside of the event hall will need to be finished or discarded prior to entry into the event hall. There are several options for attendees to purchase food in and around the event. There is a restaurant and Starbucks located in the North Hall main lobby area and several food carts inside the Fan Festival main hall to purchase food and drinks from throughout Friday and Saturday. There will also be food trucks nearer to the South Hall entrance as an additional option.

Square Enix strives to support the Disability Community and the American Disabilities Act (ADA). As part of our effort to support the community, the registration area will have a separate line to accommodate attendees with disabilities. Please proceed directly to the Registration area and do not wait in the general queue line if you need special accommodations. There will be a sign directing attendees within the Registration area labeled "ADA."

When picking up your ticket via the ADA line, you will also receive an additional wristband to designate your ability to utilize the ADA security line and sit in the specially marked areas in the main hall with room for wheelchairs and chairs adjacent to them for a +1.

These seats will have special backings placed on them so that they are easily identifiable. There may not be enough seats to guarantee every attendee with a disability one of the designated seats, and they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for attendees with disabilities. Should these specially marked seats not be in use during a stage event by an attendee with a disability, then they may be used by other attendees. However, should the seat be needed by an attendee with a disability, then it must be vacated. Note that the location of some seats will change before the PRIMALS concert.

When utilizing the ADA entrance into the event, simply alert the security staff to your needs so they can assist you as necessary.
