Was hoping to get a response here; what if I'm injured(I fall under the can't walk or stand for extended periods of time), but I'm not on disability or anything? Should I just bring a doctor's note or something describing my ailment to IRT or what?

....awesome, should've double checked the post title

That would qualify you as disabled. You should go to disability services when you get there and explain what happened and they will make sure your accommodated appropriately. They have an area by the main ballroom & one within/by registration. (KnitChick correct me if I'm wrong) You shouldn't have to do bring a doctors note.

^what KungPowKirby said. I was in reg last year and worked with the special services for a couple of shifts, and people who are injured are also eligible for disability at ACen. Make sure to get in the right line at the con, and ask the one in charge of giving out the disability passes (will always be sitting next to the cashier) and tell them your situation. You will be accommodated accordingly.

Whoops, sorry didn't see this sooner!

What KungPowKirby and Fantasia said is correct. We may ask for a doctor's note, so if you have one bring it with in case. But we will work with you to make sure you can still enjoy the con no matter what! We have two locations - in the Hyatt we have an office on the hallway leading to Main Programming (just look for the door with the giant wheelchair on it!) and in the convention center we're over in Registration. We have a greeter over by Reg who will be able to direct you toward our booth!
