Badge registration started at noon CT today. 

Very glad to have gotten a VIP ticket.  Once you buy your badge, you get a code for a room in the hotel block.  There are only 2 hotels connected to the convention center, so was also glad I got our group a room in the Hyatt McCormick.

Wait, did C2E2 change their dates? They used to be the same weekend as WonderCon/SVCC/Planet Comicon.

EDIT: It appears they did. https://www.newsarama.com/40718-chicago-s-c2e2-changes-2019-dates.html

True. I was more overwhelmed when we were going to attend SDCC for the 1st time. And that was even with all the research I did before hand. :)

True. I just know that the preparation we did helped out a lot. It was still overwhelming but not as bad as it could’ve been.

Anyone that went to C2E2 have any issues with parking? I’ve heard nightmares today and I’m worried for SWCC!

For those going to C2E2, does security let you bring in outside drinks?  Was wondering if I can bring sodas in with me for Celebration.

Yes, it can be really crazy if you are coming from the west or south on I55, all the traffic is squeezing down and trying to turn in to parking lot A. I know in past years all the parking lots have filled up and they have people parking at Soldier Field also. If they did that this year I missed it but I do know on Sunday I got there just before 10 and A and B were both full.  For C2E2 I like to go directly to Parking Lot C, it is much quicker to get in to. However, they are using a different building for for SWCC than C2E2 so you would need to walk through 2 buildings to get to the con from Parking Lot C. If you can get there in some other way than driving in, I would! Unfortunately I have a long drive in from downstate so I am stuck with it. I plan to go super early if I can--I am just going Saturday and I expect it to be terrible.

I was able to bring my Aquafina bottle that was already opened and had crystal light tea mix in it. When I went through security I didn’t see them remove bottles so some people may have brought in sodas but I’m not really sure.
