It is true, if you have booked your accommodation through schoolies.com and your name is one of the names on the bond, you can get your wristband and a photo ID of you when you check in. The ID must be worn around your neck at all times while you are in your hotel, as it helps the freelance security to identify whether you are meant to be there or not. If you end up having to go to the Wristband Distribution Center at the end of Elkhorn Avenue on the beach, it is open from about 10am until 11pm. And yes, the line will be long. You can probably expect to wait 30 minutes to an hour, or even more.
