Cyan Q&A

Greetings All!

This year at Mysterium, we’ll be having a live Q&A stream with members of Cyan’s Obduction team, and that means we need questions for them! So if you have a burning question you’ve been longing to ask Cyan, now is your chance. Just follow this link and fill out the form:

You can submit as many questions as you want, and all topics are welcome. That said, the main focus of the Q&A will be on a post-mortem of Obduction’s development so far, so we’re especially looking for Obduction related questions.

Questions will be accepted until Sunday, July 23rd.

Registration and Hotel

Quick reminder that registration will remain open until next Friday, July 21st. Also, if you still need a hotel room and haven’t booked one yet, we may be able to get you a room at our convention rate. Please see here for details:

Other Bits

If you are planning to visit any of Disney’s parks while you’re in Orlando, I highly recommend getting your tickets now so that you can sign up for Disney’s FastPass service. It’s free, and it lets you skip the line at popular rides, but the slots fill up well in advance!

Finally, continuing our showcase of what committee members are most looking forward to in Orlando, here’s mine:

  • Way too much sugar at this place across the street from the hotel (
  • Seeing my Myst family
  • Fancy afternoon tea at a fancy Disney hotel
  • Defending Esher and Myst V to anyone and everyone! … as usual

Stay tuned for more info later this week!

Don’t Forget To Book Your Hotel!

Shorah all!


We want to remind everyone who’s planning to attend that the last day to book a guaranteed room in our block at the hotel is Monday, July 3! If you haven’t reserved your room yet, check out our locations page for more info about the hotel, or go straight to our booking page here.

If you’ve already got your room but are staying longer than the convention runs, have you requested your extension? You can book online for Thursday the 3rd through Tuesday the 8th, but you’ll need to use our extension form to request a longer stay.

The committee can’t believe Mysterium is only 5 weeks away.

The committee has been putting together a list of what they’re most looking forward to at Mysterium. My list is:

  • Seeing all my Mysterium friends
  • The theme for this year’s version of WWAB (it’s gonna be great!)
  • The Mysterium pool parties
  • Visiting EPCOT!
  • Being back in my home state again – ahh, sunshine


Can’t wait to see you soon,

Mysterium 2017: Registration Open!


I am happy to make two big announcements we’ve all been waiting for: hotel and registration information!


Our hotel will be the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando International Drive Jamaican Court. We’ve secured an exclusive convention rate of $119/night. This rate includes a suite with two doubles or one king bed, along with a sofa-bed in the second room. All rooms also come with complimentary self parking (the $15/day will be waived for our attendees), wifi, and breakfast cooked to order.

To book your hotel room, please visit our online booking site here. The site will allow you to book rooms between Thursday 8/3, and Tuesday 8/8. Additional nights are available at our group rate, subject to availability. If you require those extra nights, please see here for details on extending your reservation beyond those dates.

Our hotel is on International Drive. I-Drive is a popular part of Orlando surrounded by attractions, restaurants, theme parks, and shopping centers. Our Location page contains many more details about the area, including transportation options.


Registration for Mysterium 2017 is now OPEN as well! You can find all the details at our registration page here. Until June 9th, the cost for a full weekend is $25, and the cost for a full weekend with a t-shirt is $45. After that date, prices will increase, so be sure to register early!

As a reminder, the deadline for T-shirt logo contest submissions is April 14. We’ll announce the final T-shirt design shortly after that.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at the Embassy Suites in August!

Mysterium 2016 Hotel Information

Greetings all!

At long last, we are ready to announce that hotel bookings for 2016 are officially open. Mysterium will take place at the Best Western Plus CottonTree Inn, located at 10695 Auto Mall Drive, Sandy, Utah, 84070.

The hotel is a little ways outside of downtown Salt Lake, but there is public transportation available to get from the airport to the hotel, along with taxis/shuttles/rental cars. We’ll post information about getting to the hotel from the airport as we get closer to August.

We have secured a rate of $94/night, which is available from Friday, August 5th thru Tuesday, August 9th. Rooms with both one and two beds are available.

We have also secured a limited number of rooms for Thursday, August 4th at a rate of $130.

You can book your rooms by calling the hotel directly at 800-662-6886 and pressing 2 for the Sandy, Utah location. When you call, tell them you are with the Mysterium convention to get our group rates.

We realize that a limited number of more expensive rooms for Thursday isn’t ideal as most attendees like to arrive on Thursday. We anticipate that most people should be able to get a room, but, because some might choose to arrive on Friday instead, we will be sure not to schedule any of the “big ticket” presentations/events until later in the day on Friday. We’re currently working on the schedule and will let you know when that is available.

Don’t forget to register here:

We’re really sorry for how long it has taken to get hotel information out this year, but we’re very happy with the hotel we’ve chosen. We can’t wait to see you all this summer!
