I'm going to try to get into the Saturday Hall H line right after Star Wars (assuming I get in there).  May have up to two other people with me.  Is anyone getting in line earlier on Saturday that we could potentially join up with?  I'd be willing to take a large part of the overnight shift to maintain the place in line while others sleep in real beds.

This is most people's plan at the moment. Which means there will be tons of people joining the wristband line just before the wristbands get distributed. I think when it comes down to it. It will come down to choosing between Star Wars and all of Saturday.

JMHO, but this would be a good thing. It will spread crowds more evenly across the two days, and make it easier for those who are only interested in one of the days. In my mind, it's the same thing as having to choose between 2 panels being held at the same time.

So just to clarify, we can get a wristband and be guaranteed to get in for the first panel of the day if we leave the line as long as we are back by 7:30? That sound like a pretty good option for people who don't exactly care where they sit in the room.

Yes. That's supposed to be the whole idea: they cut down on the number of overnight campers.

I think I'd be up for a full overnight shift starting around 9PM Friday (for Saturday badge) if anyone will be in line early enough for a wristband (doesn't need to be super close to the front)

For the Friday panel what would be an appropriate time to start lining up? 
I'm guessing the line will start right after they hand out Thursday wristbands.

We generally don't talk about specific times on here - doing so only creates an expectation that pushes the actual line up earlier than the time suggested.  (If you saw a big group of people might come at midnight, you'd show up at 11:30 to beat them - and so on)

I'm gonna be camping on Thursday for Star Wars on Friday and I'm planning to get there mid-afternoon most likely. Last year for the marvel studios and WB panel, i reached around 4:30 and I was in the middle section for Hall H, so I'm sure the line will be pretty crazy this year.

I'm already planning with one person and any more would be really convenient as well!

I would love to join a group for the Thursday line... don't want to spend all Wednesday in line.

How do we organize the thursday line group? :)

Is anyone skipping Friday to line up for Saturday?

2 of us have dinner plans with a larger group at 9pm, but are willing to hold spots before 8:45pm and after 10-10:30pm

Please let me know :)

You know the wristband distribution starts at 9:45 that night, right?

yeah, that's why we wanted to find a group to hold our spots so we can get dinner. We were planning on coming back in line at 9:40, then finish up dinner after wristbands.

Our group has a reservation at 9pm, so we'd leave the line at 8:45 and come back at 9:40, then leave again until probably 10:30 until whenever
