Just show your Hilton Room Key with your paid Saturday ticket, and you can get in two hours early, avoid the crowds later in the day, meet Professional LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya, and get a guided tour of the exhibit hall by BrickJournal magazine editor Joe Meno.
  2. All Hilton guests will also receive a FREE 41-piece custom LEGO “Stuka Tank Buster” airplane kit (courtesy of BrickMania). Just show your Hilton Room Key at the BrickJournal table in the Vendor area to get this limited edition kit. (Limit one per room number, while supplies last.)
