Rule of thumb for panels is roughly 3 hours prior. Add more or less time based on the size of the room, popularity and panels that come before and after it.

For the simpsons it was in ballroom 20 on saturday last year You are not allowed to view links.

when the schedule comes out, they'll have a chart per room, so you'll be able to easily see what panels are in the room prior & post.  That info will be *very* helpful in planing out how early to line up.

Another question about the panels. I was looking at last year and futurama was held at 12 and Simpsons at 1. I believe they were in the same room. For the panels room once you get in there do you stay in there till you want to leave or once a panel is done do you have to leave? Thank you

They don't clear the room between panels. If there's two panels you want to see in the same room, staying is a good option. They also usually have bathroom passes in case nature calls.

I've been to the Simpson panel a few times over the years. They are funny and definitely don't take the Con too seriously. Usually they have 1 or 2 clips from the upcoming season. Never any swag given away.  Future a panel has been good too.

All good advice above on ensuring you get in.  Once the schedule is posted it'll be easier to suggest a "get in line" time.
