There is a covered parking garage adjacent to the Hyatt Regency with plenty of parking spots. Parking is free, unless you wish to use the valet service.

Toll Booth

While use of the parking garage is free, traveling on and off airport property requires going through toll booths. We have negotiated with the Hyatt Regency DFW that anyone attending the convention (non-local attendee and local attendee) will have their tolls validated and attendees will not be charged.

To ensure this process works, please follow these instructions from the hotel:

“Upon entering the airport gates, you will want to enter through the TICKET ONLY lanes located at both the north and south entrance. You will receive a ticket time stamping your entrance onto airport grounds. The hotel will validate all parking tickets at the front desk or bell stand. For the attendees with toll tags, you will want to disable your Toll Tag temporarily for use prior to entering DFW facilities. You can do this via NTTA’s website and/or via the use of the mobile app NTTA.”

http://geekdo-images.com/images/sugar.gifFor all attendees:
SHOW your wristband to either the bell stand or to the front desk. Both locations have toll validation stamps. The bell stand generally has the stamp for up to 16 hours. If you need validation for more than 16 hours, make sure you let the attendant know, or you may need to see the hotel front desk.
http://geekdo-images.com/images/sugar.gifFor attendees with North Texas Toll Authority (NTTA) Toll Tags, or TxTag:
http://geekdo-images.com/images/die-black-1.gif Remove your toll tag from your windshield for the week.
http://geekdo-images.com/images/die-black-2.gif Go to the appropriate toll authority website to discontinue toll collection for the DFW Airport.
http://geekdo-images.com/images/die-black-3.gif Enter and exit through "TICKET ONLY" lanes.
http://geekdo-images.com/images/sugar.gifIf you are still billed:
http://geekdo-images.com/images/die-black-1.gif Contact the Hyatt Regency and be prepared to send in the toll bill and proof of convention registration and proof of attendance at the Convention (e-mail registration, copy of badge/wristband)
http://geekdo-images.com/images/die-black-2.gif Contact bggcon@boardgamegeek.com - we want to know.

Mail/Shipping Services

For those of you who might ship a box of games to yourself at the hotel:

Per contract with hotel: Group to receive the following discounted pricing for use of our in-house FedEx service: $10 handing fee for incoming packages (self-pickup only at FedEx office located on the convention level). Additional $10 delivery fee to have received package delivered to booth, guestroom, or other location inside of the Hotel. Outgoing packages handling fee will be at the reduced rate of $10 per package. Additional fee of $5 if a FedEx box is required. (note: the $5 box fee will cover any size box, and is a significant reduction in price if large sized box is required)

Plan accordingly...

Grapevine Shuttle

If you feel the need to see sunlight and a different set of 4 walls, we have contracted with the Grapevine Convention and Visitors Bureau to use their very effective and helpful Grapevine Shuttle. Courtesy of Rio Grande Games - you may ride by simply showing your BoardGameGeek wristband to the Grapevine Visitor Shuttle Drivers.

For route information, etc. please check out their site: Grapevine Shuttle. The Yellow Route has pick-up and drop-off times at the Hyatt Regency DFW.

Please be mindful of the last pick-up time or you might be calling a cab to get back to the hotel.
