Depends what they do about unofficial lines and enforcing rules.  If there's a long line because of Doctor Who, there may not be much space for an official line to start before that panel starts.  I guess it's when the sidewalk in front of the Hilton is clear.

theres gonna be people milling around the area for the official unofficial line to start if they don't allow one to start yet. Twilight fans were camping out on sunday before con and star wars  fans are more die hard than they are.

I'm hoping CCI will enforce their line policy this year but I'm braced for it to be the same as the Hall H line on Friday (for Saturday) last year.

But I agree with the above commenters that there's probably not going to be space for CCI to even sanction an unofficial official line until after they clear out Hunger Games and let people in for Doctor Who. For Twilight, there was no other lines to contend with since it was on Thursday so it wasn't difficult for people to line up days ahead of time.

When you have a big panel like Doctor Who, the line could easily stretch back onto the sidewalk with people hoping the room empties enough after Hunger Games.

And, with all this panic, remember that if your goal is to just get in the room, you could hold off on getting in line much longer.

I'm bummed that they put entertainment weekly brave new warriors before the Star Wars panel. I wanted to see that panel but no one is going to leave after game of thrones. I wish they would have put it in Ballroom 20.

I'm not a Hall H'er (gasp!!) but I can say I feel HORRIBLE for everyone. It really is the worst choice all the way around. I would love to hear their reasoning. We can't necessarily blame CCI for the knucklehead move. It could be the time conflict with the talent. I know there are many moving parts to make this all work and you never know, CCI could be doing the head shake and the V8 slap.

A thought that ran through my brain, this may completely turn off some people who don't want to spend their whole Friday in Hall H waiting for SW, so they will either go to the floor or to other panels that they were thinking about going to in the first place. From the sounds of it, I don't think I'll be getting into Ash vs Evil Dead either......that seems to be a big deal. Dang it!

For those camping out for Friday, how early are you showing up? Will this be like Twilight and people get there days in advance or just the day before around 5:30pm?

Hall H tip:

Generally, on the forums, we don't mention specific times for when you plan to start lining up for Hall H. The thing about lining up is that it's best NOT to mention what time you will be lining up, especially on public areas such as forum communities, twitter, or facebook.  If you do, others will see it, panic about lines, and then go earlier and earlier than that.  (You might have noticed that no one really has mentioned anything about timing for lines because of this.)

At the moment, going with your best judgement (and then scoping out what the lines look like the night before) is the best advice that I can offer.

The timing may be tied to the star wars breakfast. Do you think some of the actors will show up?

The only person who will probably be there will be Steve Sansweet from Rancho Obi-Wan You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login   . The breakfast isn't put on by Lucasfilm or anyone from Disney.  Roughly, just SW fans having breakfast and enjoying a raffle!

Is anyone thinking of getting in line for the Friday panels late Thursday afternoon assuming they do the wristbands again?  I'm probably going to pick up my SDCC T-shirts mid-Thursday afternoon before joining the line.

Just my opinion here, but seeing as how CCI has said in the past Marvel requested their late Saturday time slot, I would not be surprised if Lucasfilm/Disney requested a later time, leaving CCI with little choice.

Again.... no proof of this, just wanted to point out it's what Marvel/Disney has done in the past

Also, thanks for your sympathy!  I've got friends who have gone to hall h every Fri/Sat for the past 10 years.  This will be my first time, but I'll probably be joining them.

What I've been thinking about lately is if I will be able to attend the SDCC SW Fan breakfast at 7:30am (Being that I'd already have my wristband and line savers.) and make it back to my Hall H line spot before they start letting us in? I've heard/read they can start letting everyone in as early as about 8:15am. Oy vey!
