According to the official SWTOR twitter feed, preregistrations for the Anaheim Cantina is closed, all slots full.

You'd think this would be worth posting in the forums, but apparently TPTB think otherwise.

Well, the page always said that pre-registration would only be open until April 14th, which gave Musco just enough time to print out the pre-registration list before heading to the airport. So it's not a big surprise that you can no longer pre-register now.
I'd say the "overwhelming response" is mostly a marketing phrase but it may very well be true. I'll definitely make sure to arrive early just in case, it is going to be very crowded.

I wanted to tell you about our new Cantina pre-registration page! You can find the page and some more details on it here. However, let me give you the TLDR on the perks of pre-registering for our Cantinas:
  • If you pre-register and attend the Cantina, you are eligible for a pre-registrant exclusive swag drawing!
  • If you pre-register and then redeem that Cantina exclusive pack code, you will receive an additional in-game reward.
  • Pre-registrants will get priority access to the Cantina (you get in first!)
  • Note: RSVPing on Facebook does not count as pre-registering, you must do it through this new page.
You can also see all of our currently planned Cantinas for the year listed there as well. We will update those with the specifics of each event as we have it! Thanks everyone, see you at the Cantina.

One of the things on the list says that if we pre-register and then redeem the Cantina exclusive pack code, we receive an additional in-game reward. So far, I haven't seen that additional reward. I've seen the Cantina pack with the mount and the random item, but it seems that even people who didn't pre-register are getting the random item so I don't think that is the additional reward. Just wondering what the additional reward was, if there is any.

Cantina event was great. Glad I drove to Anaheim for it. I also like the way that those mount codes are being handled so that everyone has the potential to get the mount, yet at the same time with it being possible for everyone to get the mount, it takes away that exclusive limited feel to it. At least for now, after a couple months when the original codes expire, they will stop being generated but I don't see them being rare. But that's another reason that I'm hoping there is an additional reward for those who pre-registered, attended, and used the code so there is some exclusivity.

I'd like to know about that other reward as well, what happened to it?

And don't worry too much about the speeders not being exclusive, the redemption page in your account says that the codes/links only work for the 60 days after the event, so once those 60 days are over, no one can get the mount anymore, no matter when the link was generated.

I feel the heads up time for these events are kind of last minute, not letting working type have enough time to plan for time off work and travel, since these events are few and far between.

Yes, yes, yes. Please. Information on this?

I know there's some hangup with the codes for some people (myself included) so maybe there is some sort of delay with the "pre-registration bonus". I just think if the little extra, random item in the "pack" is the "bonus in-game item" would be a failure...since everyone got them.

The pre-registration / attendance bonus is still coming. I will make sure the copy is more clear but that actual bonus comes at a later date. It doesn't happen at the same time as the code redemption itself. It should happen in the next week or two most likely. I will keep you all updated on timing.

You will receive more information on that bonus in your email (the one tied to your account, not in-game).

Thanks for the heads up. Will the bonus item be the same for all of the cantina stops for 2015 like the pets were in past years or will it change from stop to stop like the speeders this year?
