Does anyone know if the panel and autograph signing will be in the same place? Or will it be one of those "choose one over the other" deals? I know conventions usually get you with that. You can line up for event A..but that pretty much guarantees that you'll miss event B.

Argh..decisions decisions!! lol.

I don't care what time the actual panel is, I'm getting there at 6 am! Oh, but what if you're right about the autographs/panel being in two different places??? That would really stink. Let's hope that's not the case. Luckily, I'm staying at the hotel that connects to the convention center, so I don't have to worry about parking etc. I'm still getting there super early though! :) so where did you guys here that it was at 1:15? Is that the panel discussion or autograph signing?

I'm coming in that morning from Fallbrook, which is about an hour north. I'm going to aim for getting there between 6:30 and 7 a.m. ... I just can't justify getting up earlier than than during a vacation, and I don't think my boyfriend is alive before that point in the day. ;)

Here's hoping that the presentation is in the afternoon!

P.S. - I don't know how many of you are coming with a tag-along like I am, but if it comes down to an either/or situation with the presentation or the autograph signing, you can bet I'm sending him to stand in line. Now that is love.

ETA: Just found a leaked ComicCon schedule online at:

It's not set in stone yet, so I wouldn't fully plan your schedules, but it does look like it'll be in the afternoon. :)

The badge is basically your ticket to get in the Con. I'm pretty sure you wear it around your neck like an all-access pass.

I'm bringing a couple of the books. I'd like to get one signed by just Stephenie and the other by the cast and crew perhaps. There's typically a limit on how many items you can bring to get signed. Although, this is all hearsay; I've never actually been to a Con or any sort of autograph signing.

I'm afraid of pulling a Bella during the signing and knocking over the table or fainting ... I get nervous easily. :oops:

so why'd you have to wait in line for the badge? couldn't you just have gotten it online? I just printed mine from the internet, do I need to do something else? :)

and does anyone know a place to get photo-quality pictures of the twlight cast for autographs?

gracias :)

The thing you printed off-line is just your receipt, basically. You are still going to have to stand in line to pick up your badge at the entrance to the convention center. Someone in an earlier post said it was to make sure no one who didn't pay got in.

That's why a bunch of us that are going are planning on getting to the Con super early Thursday morning ... someone got in line last year at 9 a.m. and had to wait five hours just to get into the place. :?
