What time do they actually open the doors?  Like if we get there at 7, can we at least hold space in line before going into the queue hall for a few others, a la Hall H?

What about Thursday (which still has some announcements pending probably), and Vin Diesel on Saturday?
I filled in the form based on the current schedule I will update if there are any changes.

I did not see anything on Thursday for Main Stage or Hammerstein but I will double check.

I like the thought that it'll be relatively easy to get in to see Vin.   :)
It could have been an oversight on my part. My intention was to list every panel regardless of popularity. Missing Vin is not intentional so I will update tonight.

Entrance will be dependent on the staff. Last year I recall there was a slight delay at the entrance.

We can use a group texts for the entrance line. One thing I was trying to figure out was prioritization of the panels for distribution. Maybe we place 1, 2, or 3 instead of x's - that way we can figure out what is the priority for everyone.

I think that's a good idea

There's nothing in the Hammerstein on Thursday or Sunday, but The League is on the main stage Thursday afternoon, followed by the creator of Naruto, and the WBTV previews.

Even assuming delays, is there a time that they're supposed to open the doors?  I'm concerned because our train is scheduled to get to Penn Station at 7:22 on Thursday, and I'm worried that will be problematic if those unfilled blocks on the main stage end up being for Star Wars or MCU.

I think you will be fine. Once you arrive into queue hall you will find a sign showing the wristband status.

Team - thanks for the feedback. I updated the document for the Main Stage Panels I missed.

Reminder, it's **much** easier to be recognized as a forum member is you have a forum lanyard.  They're $12 shipped
it's not too late to order.

i've just had to search for too many people in lines over the years ....

At this past SDCC, I had a bathroom pass to get into the Orphan Black panel. Since I wasn't going to use it, I decided to pass along the karma and give it to someone in the (massive) line waiting to get in. I walked the entire line looking for an FoCCI lanyard (any version) and never found one. Perhaps I walked by an FoCCI member, but I had no idea...

So the point about FoCCI lanyards is well taken.

I will be wearing mine attached to the FX card holder i got at SDCC. I bought the previous version for SDCC before the name change, so look for me in line for the Netflix panel.
