ADD YOUr info to signage:

WAG KIOSK at Prost Patio in Germany

From Route 60, turn onto Busch Gardens Blvd to the Employee Parking Lot.

When arriving to the security kiosk on the road, tell them you are working for the Entertainment Department for the Summer of Wonder event. For those of you with Badges, you may show them to the security guard if necessary.
Park anywhere in the Employee Parking Lot

• Once parked, walk through the Employee Security “Gate 3”. You will need to show your ID and give your name which will be on a list. (We will NOT BE RECEIVING ID Badges as previously stated. Your names will now be at the security gate on the days of your shifts.) If any additional info is needed, you are a contractor under Practical Imagination for the Summer of Wonder event. If for any reason you need to reference a BGW Employee, reference Ben DeWitt, VP of the Entertainment Department as our point of contact.
• If you cannot get in for any reason, please text or call Melody Matheny at 407-489-6244.
• Use the map below to walk to the Prost Patio in the Germany pavilion, which is WAG’s Kiosk, or what we call socially “WAG Central”! Click HERE for a higher resolution version.

Walking Map

Please wear whatever respectful clothing you’d like to. Nothing vulgar, political or offensive in any way. You are encouraged to wear your own company’s shirts/hats/etc if applicable.

All pricing was determined by WAG as a group. BGW will charge 30% commission on all sales, so WAG prices have been adjusted to accommodate that.

PRICE #1: $50
PRICE #2: $150
PRICE #3: $300
PRICE #4: $600
PRICE #5: $1200

Art Kiosk: When someone wants to make a purchase, they will go to the DerMarket Platz Gift Shop and inform the Cashier that they are purchasing a piece of artwork, and the color code associated with the one they want. (See Artwork Pricing chart above). The Guest will then pay there and bring you back the receipt to show proof of purchase. Then you can either give the Guest your artwork there or the Guest can choose to pick it up at the front of the park within 2 hours of the receipt. If they choose that, please bring your artwork to the DerMarket Platz Gift Shop and they will take it from there.

For Art Kiosk workers: If you sell pieces, please write down the following information immediately in the WAG Log Book at the Kiosk. THIS IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT.
1. how much you sold for
2. who’s piece of art it was
3. the date

THIS IS HOW WE WILL TRACK PAYOUT TO THE ARTISTS!

Plein Air: If your Guest wants to purchase off the easel, they will go to the nearest Gift Shop to your Plein Air location and do the same process as above. If you sell a piece in this manner, PLEASE email Melody that day to inform of how much it sold for so I can keep a record and compare with Busch’s records, OR please write it down in the Art Kiosk WAG Log Book before you leave the park. This is of utmost importance.

BGW will allow us to store WAG supplies in this lockable shed at Prost Patio during off hours. We have begun creating space in the FAR RIGHT portion of the shed behind the red doors. We have WAG things on the shelves on the left and on the floor on the right.
