How I Met Your Mother, Indigo Ballroom, 12:00pm-1:00pm
« on: July 08, 2013, 08:35:35 AM »
For the first time ever, the hit sitcom visits Comic-Con to kick off its final season with an exclusive look at the show and a panel featuring Josh Radnor (Happythankyoumoreplease), Jason Segel (The Muppets), Cobie Smulders (The Avengers), Neil Patrick Harris (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), and Alyson Hannigan (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and executive producers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, and Pamela Fryman.
Saturday July 20, 2013 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Indigo Ballroom, Hilton San Diego Bayfront

Ok, so it looks like the HIMYM panel is noon on Saturday in the Hilton Bayfront. We also want to see the Geek & Sundry panel before it at 11. What time would you recommend lining up over there?

I'm curious about this as well. I have a 10yo daughter who cannot attend on Saturday and is begging me to go to the Monster High panel for her.

HIMYM looks like it's going to be in a smaller room, and I really don't think CCI thought this one through. I've heard that if you don't get there by 4am, you may be out of luck.

Rats. I thought we'd get a little more leeway with this one.

Indigo isn't that small. I think it's #3 after Hall H and Ballroom 20.

Hoping this makes a difference and most people line up Marvel.

Yeah some things in your favor include that it's going up against the other 2 bigger rooms and it'll be much more difficult to get in that line without a badge since it's a bit further away.

Would love to see the panel but H wins out. Hopefully will get a replay somewhere.

Moved to the Saturday section just so it's easier to keep organized.

I'm hoping to get to this. I'm thinking of getting down there about 7/8am. No idea if that will get me in or not.

I'm also planning on getting into this and 4am I think sounds ridiculous. Has anyone camped for Indigo before? Would they let you literally camp out inside since it's in the hotel? I have been to several panels at Indigo, but never like first thing in the morning.

That's a good question - the hotels don't want the campers since they don't have a place to put the lines (partially why no more on-site pre-reg).

I'd say scout the area out day before panel to see where people would be.

I think the south door to the lobby would be a good place to camp for Indigo.  The morning line usually leads out to the boardwalk.

I don't know where exactly you get in line, but one of my roommates camped for Indigo last year at 2 a.m. (for the TV Guide fan favorites panel with Matt Smith), so it is done.  She wasn't the only one, either--there were apparently 13 or so other people (mostly Glee fans) in front of her in line.

It's usually south then to the east near the water, but you have to keep that line separated from the Hall H that uses the same area.

I'll be trying for this panel  ;D

I don't have too much to offer other than I think 4am is way too early unless you want seats more towards the front. I'm trying to get into to it too but I don't think I'll be there that early. Maybe by 10? But I just wanna get in. Oh and just looked at hall h and it is insane so hopefully that takes away some of the crowds.

I will definitely be waiting in this line around 2 am..Maybe sooner..... I've had tons of practice waiting in line for harry potter movies, sometimes 12 hours in advance. I really want to see most of it for indigio so I would rather be in front early on, then try and seat hop in between panels. it's not like I have anythign else to do at 2 am lol
