Hi all,

How bad are the pre-registration pick up lines Friday morning? How long does it generally take, does anyone know?

I'm kind of worried because Thursday pre-reg pickup might not happen (for my group) and Friday's pre-reg pickup at Katsucon was a horror, although it's a smaller con... >>

Thanks!

I would like to know this as well. It is my first AB and I want to get there as early as possible.

I've never had any issues with the lines at AB. I try to get there before registration opens. Last year the line to get into the CON was pretty bad, but it was apparently all these mix-ups and what-not. I've never had a terribly long wait for pre-reg.

I didn't have a problem with registration when I went last year (it was actually surprisingly fast, especially for the size of the con) but the security line getting into the convention was a bit long all weekend last year, and a lot of it was outside in the cold! :(

While the Artist's Alley is open, you can go through the line at the door that connects to the Sheraton. It's typically shorter and goes a lot faster.

We picked up our pre-reg badges the past 2 years on Friday morning. We get there around 11 and have a 5-10 minute wait for the badges. The buy at the door line is longer, but they can't get a ticket on Thursday from what I recall.

Now getting into the Hynes is different story with the bag check line (30 minutes if its starting to get busy before 11:30).
