Can I leave a physical ticket at will call?

Please don't refer me to the will call FAQ page, it doesn't answer this question...

I've wondered the same. Don't actually need the service this year, but would be a nice one. Edit: My guess is: "No."

This question has been asked several times in several different threads and I have yet to see a definitive answer, so I wouldn't count on it.

I can't swear to it, but I think they used to do this.
A lot is changing, but I feel sure the answer used to be yes.
Seems an obvious service.

If you are picking up Will Call tickets, the only one who can pickup the tickets is that designated as "Shipped To" on the order (in years past: or they have a letter of sale from that person - with a copy of their photo id). That person picking up Will Call tickets can then leave physical tickets in the name of others for pickup. Other than that, I wouldn't count on it. If it wasn't a Will Call order, there's no order number for them to file/track and handout the ticket(s).

Will Call FAQ wrote:Please note that orders cannot be split, meaning you cannot enter the names of multiple people to pick up individual items from your order. If recipients are arriving separately, the order needs to be under the name of the person arriving first. Once at the Box Office they will need to collect the order and then place any remaining items under the names of the people arriving later.

left a vehicle pass that had been part of a mailed out order for a camp mate to pick up. They had no issue taking it.

They would not hold hard tickets that were not will call this year.
This resulted in people with hard tickets waiting for them, being D lotted with the hordes trying to buy a ticket with no shot at all.

Good thing too. Don't want people thinking that they can buy tickets at the gate.

That seems to have no effect on them showing up trying.
They would have killed and eaten me for a ticket.
"Dude, got a ticket to sell?"
Looked like rainbow gathering rejects.

Problem was people with hard tickets in hand with others inside couldn't pick them up without someone standing by the gate non-stop.

And Gyre is a dried-out, stringy thing with hardly any meat on him, just so you understand the level of desperation here.
