Welcome back to the Grand Prix Orlando countdown blog! Yesterday, I did a brief overview of what to expect at Grand Prix Orlando, but today is when I'll really start diving into things. Grand Prix are massive events with a lot going on at them. From awesome special guests and super-sweet side events to the chance to win an invite to a Pro Tour, a Grand Prix really is whatever you want to make out of it. But in order to make Grand Prix Orlando a special event for yourself, you need to become more familiar with what your options are!
Main Event Registration
Kaladesh/Aether Revolt Limited is the main event format at Grand Prix Orlando, so bring your nicest set of sleeves, because the cards and deckbox will be provided for you! By signing up for a Grand Prix main event, not only are you signing up for the largest open-entry Magic: The Gathering tournament offered worldwide, but you're also signing up for the opportunity to win an invitation to the Pro Tour! Throw in a FOIL Progenitus and our Show Up & Play Experience, and our Main Event Registration is the perfect option for you!
- Entry into the Main Event
- Preregistered Sealed pool containing the contents of two (2) Kaladesh & four (4) Aether Revolt booster packs
- Ultimate Guard Deck Case 100+
- Show Up & Play! experience (includes Sleep-In Special)

Three-Day Infinite Challenge
If you're more interested in playing as many matches of Magic as possible, our Three-Day Infinite Challenge option is just what you're looking for. We'll be hosting Challenge events all weekend long across numerous formats (including Sealed!) for you to pick and choose from, so find what events work for your schedule and battle until you can battle no more. But don't forget that you get these!
- Entry into all Challenge events (including Sealed Challenge events) for all three days

One-Day Infinite Challenge
Don't have three days to spare to play Magic until infinity? Completely understandable, and we're more than happy to accommodate you! Our One-Day Infinite Challenge option lets you play as many challenge events across numerous formats (including Sealed!) as you can handle.
If playing with 100-card decks is your cup of tea, we've got that covered as well. Many of you are familiar with our Command Zone at previous Grand Prix, but with a little help from the awesome people over at Ultimate Guard, we've once again transformed the Command Zone into a place where you can become the Ultimate Commander! Check out all the sweet swag you get for selecting this option while supplies last!
- 1 of 4 Commander VS playmats
- Ultimate Guard Commander Boulder™ Deck Case 100+
- A digital copy of The Complete Commander by Bennie Smith & MJ Scott
- Four (4) Commander event vouchers
Show Up & Play Experience
You know what sucks? Long lines. I've never met anyone who likes waiting in a long line and we at StarCityGames.com® don't like long lines either. And thanks to our Show Up & Play! Experience system, main event participants won't have to wait in long lines to check in and receive all their goodies.
Beginning at 8:00 AM on Saturday, main event participants will be able to construct their Sealed decks as soon as they arrive. Simply report to the Show Up & Play! stations next to the main event stage to receive your preregistered Sealed pool and be seated for deck construction. Once seated, players will receive five (5) minutes to verify the contents of their preregistered Sealed pool and then thirty (30) minutes to construct their deck. If you'd like to learn more about our new and improved Show Up & Play! Experience, you can do so right here!
What Tomorrow Brings
Now that you know your options and what registration rewards come along with them, we can dive further into the main event. Tomorrow I'll be going over Grand Prix Orlando's maximum main event seating capacity (that's a mouthful!), the main event schedule for Saturday and Sunday, the main event prizes, and the Pro Points you can earn. See ya then!
