At ATL Comic Convention, we are dedicated to providing an enjoyable and rewarding experience that is safe for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, marital status, veteran status, physical or mental disability, physical appearance, body size, race, national origin, age, dress, political affiliation, or fandom preference in any area, activity or operation of FanX.
**We encourage those with Mobility issues and who find it hard to stand in lines for long periods; please prepare for your visit by having a portable, lightweight stool or renting a wheelchair or scooter for your visit. Our lines are wheelchair and scooter accessible. Please use the lines according to your ticket pass access. VIP tickets in our VIP lines, and all other ticket holders, please use the GA lines. **
We have ADA wristbands available if you would prefer to wear one. They will be available at registration when you pick up your wristband for entrance. Please ask for that when you arrive. You are allowed 2 companions in the autograph area and 4 in the photo ops. Depending on the popularity of a panel, we may need you to split your party if the ADA section becomes too full to accommodate large groups, so all may be seated that need ADA seating. Thank you for being so understanding.
All ADA companions, including PCA handlers, are expected to purchase tickets to the event.
We offer several different ADA accommodations.
ATL Comic Convention does not have reserved parking for the event. However, Convention Parking is a great resource for finding handicap-accessible lots near the Convention Center.
2. ADA Waiting Areas in Photo Ops
Photo Ops has an ADA waiting area, and chairs will be available. Please arrive at the ADA Waiting Area at most 10 minutes before your scheduled Photo Op, as space is limited.
In the Ballroom, the ADA group will be seated together. We will do our best to keep groups together; however, if space is limited, you may be asked to limit your group to just one additional person. If you are using a wheelchair, you will be assigned to one of several designated sections located throughout the Ballroom. The same is expected for ADA if the panel requires a ticket to enter.
*Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so ADA seating may only be available if you arrive at the last minute to get to the room.
In Photo Ops, we will keep your group together. When the celebrity or group is ready, ADA groups will be given special consideration to enter, as space permits, ahead of the General Admission crowd. After you get your Photo Op and pick up the print, you can leave the Photo Op area! If you are using a wheelchair and would like to stand for your Photo Op, you can request to have the wheelchair moved out of the picture and returned to you when the photo is complete. You may have four people per Photo Op. Babies under one year do not count.
Celebrity Row for Autographs will have an ADA/VIP line and a general admission line. ADA attendees may bring up their two designated caregivers in the ADA Autograph line. Any additional party members will have to wait in the line designated by their ATL CC pass; however, children will always be allowed to accompany their parents. If you want a “selfie” with the celebrity, and they allow it, convention crew Team Members can use your phone to take a picture of you.
4. ASL Interpreters
ASL interpreters are available by request at the Information booth for Grand Ballroom panels only.
5. Harassment Policy
During the event, anyone who witnesses a violation of the Zero Tolerance Harassment Policy should report it to one of our convention crew staff, security, or a staff member recognizable by the staff badge they wear at all times.
6. Wheelchair Reservation
There is no longer any rental for wheelchairs or scooters at the convention center. Please make arrangements with a local rental in the area before the event.

7. Service Dogs are allowed
Only service dogs will be allowed at the Convention Center. According to state and federal law, a “service animal” is any dog that is trained, or is in training, to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability; and performs work or tasks, or is in training to perform work or tasks, that are directly related to the individual’s disability. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered. If the dog is out of control and the handler does not effectively control it or is not housebroken, the handler will be asked to remove the service animal from the premises.
If you need help with other service dogs or their handlers, please speak with a convention crew member and ask them to contact a staff member. Our goal is to provide a safe experience for all our guests.
Emotional support animals are not allowed at this time.
ATL Comic Convention 2024 is February 9-11, 2024, at The Georgia World Congress Center Hall
