**Navy Pier has reached maximum occupancy past Fourth of July holidays and we expect the same to be true this year.  We are not able to notate an exact time this will happen so we ask that you please allow plenty of travel and parking time.  Should Navy Pier reach this limit our guests will be asked to check in at the Navy Pier check-in tent located in Polk Brothers Park, adjacent to the CTA Bus Terminal.  Our staff will be there ready to check you in as well as give you a wristband that will allow you to enter Navy Pier.  You will not be able to bypass this step should we reach occupancy.  Again, please allow plenty of travel time. If you have purchased your tickets via our call center or online, it will be to your advantage to print your tickets out ahead of time or pull them up on your smartphone for faster service at check in.
