Be prepared to wait a long time if you don't get there early.

What do people think would be the best time to get there to balance waiting a long time before registration opens with waiting a long time after registration opens?

I guess what I'm asking is, how long does the will-call line get on Thursday?

Edit: the more I look this up, the more confused I get. Does will-call start at 4 on Thursday?

I'm going to move this over to Registration so they can better answer your questions.

But I've noticed in my experience (helping run the Special Needs booth over in Reg), Will Call usually moves pretty fast because all the hard work is done. :)

Hi unknownwarrior33,

Will Call is open during our open hours which fooby has listed and linked to (so yes, will call opens at 4 :) ). Remember to bring a photo ID as it is required for badge pickup for all attendees age 16 or older. We always suggest arriving at least 1 hour AFTER we open as the line usually wraps around the block before we even open the doors. Will Call is a separate line from the regular registration, so if you wait an hour until after we open it allows most of the waiting will call people to filter through and you will have a MUCH shorter wait than if you arrived hours early to be the first in line.

Thanks for the assistance everyone. Sadly it looks like I'm going to have to get my badge on Friday. Dare I ask, how bad does the will-call line get then? There were a bunch of panels I wanted to go to on Friday, and I'd hate to miss all of them because of the stupid stuff I'm being forced to deal with on my end.

Will call usually goes pretty quickly, since the hard part is already done. If you've already paid for your badge, just bring your ID and you'll be in and out in no time. I would suggest waiting until at least half an hour after Registration opens in the morning, to let them deal with the line that's built up before opening. But half hour to an hour after opening, will call will usually be flying :)
