Elvis Week question

Postby Cheiro » Fri Aug 11, 2017 2:53 am

Going to my first Elvis week and I purchased tickets to a few events. They all say "will call."

My question is do you just go to the will call where you would normally get Graceland tour tickets and they give you all your tickets at once? Or is there a will call for each event?

Don't they mean they 'will call' back with details ?

Anyone? I can find out when I get there, but I heard it takes an hour and a half standing in line to get to the ticket window.

I know the answer to my question now. If anyone else wants to know, you get a packet at Soundstage A that contains all your tickets for the week.

There are two will call windows and the lines are substantially shorter than the general line. Amazingly, there are four general ticket lines but while I was waiting today one of them was closed for at least half an hour. By the time I finally got a ticket I decided not to go to the mansion and just do the new exhibits instead. The line ups for the shuttle buses were very long, probably a 1.5 hour wait

Thanks, we enjoyed the gospel show last night. About to see the scholarly discussion, Elvis 101.

1.5, wow. We have tickets for the mansion tour, I guess we'll see what it's like today.

Sorry about going off-topic, but do we know the source for the above quote ?

Thanks in advance.

I think the source was supposed to be Elvis himself...

Yes, I know, his name is written at the end of the quote, but when did he say that ?

I don't remember what book I found it in. It's all over various quote websites. There is also a variation of it here:

If I find the source I got it from, I'll let you know.

I got the 40th anniversary Aloha DVD, a photographic history of the candlelight vigil, and both volumes of the FTD sacred songs books.

Yes, I have seen that, but I have found none where the origin of the quote is given.

I'm afraid most of those "Elvis quotes" are not authentic. They are simply copied and pasted from one site to another, and they are useless, unless a source is given.

Well, good luck starting an argument with me about it, if that's what you're after. I've had enough of that crap on FECC, which is why I left. Like I said, if I come across the source I'll let you know.
