NYCC 2016: MSG logistics
« on: October 07, 2016, 04:19:25 am »
Here is what I am able to confirm.

Official line does not start until 8am.

No bottles including bottled water is allowed. Empty plastic bottles are fine.

No outside food can be brought in.

line started earlier then 8am. i got on line about 7am  and there was already a line. it wasn't a super long  line but id say maybe 200 or so people. i could have gotten on line much later and easily gotten in but i wanted and got really close seats so it was worth it. i don't think msg ever totally filled up so i don't know what tomorrow will be like with the walking dead panel which is always the most popular panel of the convention.

There were plenty of seats available during the panel block. If you are not concerned about where you sit it was walk-in. No need to arrive too early.

Thanks for tge info! Anybody have/see any issues with bringing cameras in? Their rules say no SLRs, but I'm not sure if they're enforcing it. Thanks!

How was the afternoon process of getting in if you didn't try for the morning time?

People did have cameras. I had an SLR but I have a press passes. The staff asked that we not record the video footage.

MSG made us check our flooding chair.
It took 40 minutes to retrieve it from security at the end of the night…

Same, I had to check my small stool because of the metal legs they said.
