No, they definitely CANNOT stay with you. I'm pretty sure that in order for your friends to even enter the complex you have to have pre-approval for it, and they have to be out by 1am. When I visited my friend on her program this past July, we stayed at Pop Century (my CP friend, myself, and another friend) for 50% off with her discount, and got the dining plan for I think 60% off. Such a good deal, totally worth it, and she enjoyed getting to be a guest again.

That's a bummer they can't stay in the apartment but that is a really great deal. I'm assuming the same rules apply for family coming down too.

Yes, that is correct.

You don't need pre-approval, unless they just recently changed it. You just need to sign them in at security. But they do need to be out by 1 AM.

WHen I was there you get 6 maingates, which let up to three people in. So up to 18 entrances, but you can't split it. So even if you only let 1 person in on one day, it uses the whole day up, and you would have 5 left.

Okay, so it's best to have three people each time?

Sorry, I must have misunderstood. I haven't actually done a program yet, I was just going off of what my friend told me when I visited her.


Additional comment: one nice thing about the maingates is that they do print out a physical ticket for each person, so once you've gotten everyone in the first time, everyone can come and go as they please for the rest of the day.
Everything else previously said about the maingate passes is true, but the above is something I didn't realize until I experienced it.
