Has anyone ever been to this event? I'm looking at going at the end of the month and I have NO IDEA what to expect. I've never been to an event like this, closest similar would be an anime convention. I literally don't know if I'm supposed to be booking things ahead of time or paying for things before I get there (meeting the guests specifically, obviously I'm going to order my badge and lodgings ahead of time), or should I just show up to see the people I want to meet (with a badge obviously) and wait in line, pay when I get to the front, and get out of there? Do I get to bring my own stuff to get signed? How long should I expect lines to be? Would I be allowed to stand in line while my girlfriend does something else, then she pops in for the photo op or whatever?
The lineup seems stacked this year and with Stan Lee's declining health I'd really hate to miss out on the opportunity to meet him.
