- Thursday evening hours for CHEA Members only: 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (Ticket required.) "Now serving UCE ticket numbers . . . " Current UCE ticket numbers will be announced in the Exhibit Hall so attendees may shop in the Exhibit Hall while waiting for their ticket numbers to be admitted.)

All pre-registered attendees who request one during their pre-registration process will receive a numbered admission ticket with their confirmation materials to shop at the UCE on Thursday night. The earlier you register, the earlier your number. If you register at the Convention, you may obtain a ticket at the Information booth after you have registered. We will make every effort to assure that everyone gets in on Thursday evening. Please understand, because of fire safety regulations we cannot allow everyone in at once.
Thursday evening from 5:00-6:00 p.m. is open only to CHEA Platinum, Gold and Silver Members. (Note Saturday’s hours are abbreviated.)
To sell your used curriculum, please send your name, address, phone number, and number of items you will be selling to email@example.com, or send a self-addressed stamped envelope with the same information to CHEA Used Curriculum Exchange, 11247 Jurupa Rd., Mira Loma, CA 91752. Email is the quickest, easiest option. We will respond and send you information, either by email or regular mail on preparing your items for sale. using the tag template we send you or index cards.
On Thursday, May 29, drop your books off at the Disneyland® Hotel between 10-3. Upon receipt of your books, our volunteers sort them by grade level/type of book. We sell them over the course of the Convention. As they are sold, the tags you have put on are pulled off and sorted by name. We then file all those tags, and at the end of the Convention you pick up leftover books and we write you a check for your sales minus the 30% commission. That's it in a nutshell. Further directions are in the information packet that you will receive by e-mail if you choose to participate.
Where are you located?
The UCE is in Magic Kingdom Ballroom 3. This is right next to the Teen Convention and the Children's Convention.
What type of payment do you accept?
This year we are adding the option of being able to use a credit card. There will be a 2% surcharge for that. Cash and check are always welcome with no surcharge.
What is the last day you will accept sellers?
Sunday, May 25. We have a lot of paperwork to get in order. The UCE has filled up, though, so don't wait until the last minute.
What can I sell?
Just about anything, not just curriculum. We do have guidelines in the packet we send you if you choose to participate.
How do I sign up?
Send an email to Dianne Padget at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and approximate number of items you will be selling.
Can my friend who isn't attending the Convention come and shop?
No, we are sorry. The UCE is one of the perks of Convention attendance.
Can I volunteer in the UCE?
We do have many volunteers, so send an e-mail to Dianne Padget at email@example.com with your name, and she will send you the information. If volunteer spaces are full, she will refer you to CHEA for other opportunities to volunteer.
