How was your experience?
It was a lot of fun. There is not enough time to see everything on the weekend so you have to plan ahead as to what you really want to do. I went to a lot of panels and was able to check out the vendor area downstairs, but had no time to see any of the haunts and did not sign up for any classes. It pays to get there much earlier than they open as there is always a long line at the entrance and if you are lucky, you will be waiting inside the air conditioned building, not the hundreds of people waiting out in the hot sun. Also if you get there earlier, you may find some parking areas cheaper than $15. Well organized, helpful staff, and I heard one person say the atmosphere was kind of "chill" meaning people were relaxed and not stressed out trying to run from one panel to another, no arguing or fighting in lines as to who was there first, etc. There was plenty of room for everyone, even if you showed up a few minutes past the time a panel started.
