1. No Clue... the room I had (as crappy as it was) didn't have one. Try calling them for info!

2. Depens on when they open pre-reg line. Or should I say... no clue.

I think the pre-reg stuff will start at 4 also... but people might have already started lining up before that.

When I stayed in the Strathcona a few years ago, we had 6 people for our room, thinking they were Regal sized (in a usual double, two beds). Boy, were we wrong. Small. Very small. And very few amenities.... I don't think we even had a coffee maker. You probably won't have a microwave or a fridge (well, maybe a teensy bar fridge...but I don't remember our room having one). The front desk might have one it can let you use.

There is a Tim Hortons right across the street - super handy. Not as handy as a microwave, but...yeah. Do what JustinC said, and call them and ask.

The masquarade comes "After con hours" ... Don't know how it is this year, but last year, you just had to walk from one place to another... the whole thing was linked so it really wasn't that hard..

The Theatre is connected to the convention, so the convention closes, they stop people from going upstairs but they allow the congoers to travel to the theatre!

Ah, so we have to wait for an hour before going into the theatre?

Well the line starts early... then it takes a while for the masq workers to set up things after the AMV contest... and then it will take time to get everyone seated... so it will take some time. Buy a book and relax in the line, I say!

It's a good thing your pre-reg your ticket! ^_^ The line at CNAX is *always* brutal because it's not only an anime con, but also sci-fi (with Patrick Stewart!!! ^_^ so all the trekkie fans will be there), comic-con, and a newbie horror.

I think you can get it before 4 pm which I'd recommend to mingle among other cosplayers and chat with everyone. Don't forget to chat with me! ^_^ I'll be in the theatres on the main floor *hopefully*.

OH! I have a last minute question... you don't have to pre register for CNA do you? because... I didn't >_>

I can wait in the 'lazy bum' line-up for a few hours right to buy my ticket? I've been away most of the summer and never really got a chance.

This isn't really a question its a fact, Cna and Tac are huge now! Them made the dealers room for tac way bigger, and the upper level for cna's dealer room is bigger too!

I was there today, with a friend cause my mom had to show us how to get there on the train.

As long as you get there at least 2 1/2 hours or 1 1/2 before you'll be okay, I believe... you get there @ 4pm and prepare for a long wait.

Yeah me and my friend are getting there for 3 pm. And getting into costume there. we will most likely be there a little later now like 3:30 cause we need more time to get ready!

it depends on the TYPE of room you get.
i think the Strathcona has "Standard" and "Deluxe" rooms. for a couple bucks more you get a little more room, coffee maker, and some other stuff.
we got the Deluxe room last year and easily fit two air mattresses for four extra people and another TV with Playstation.

Yeah, but because of that let's just hope that HObbystar learned from last year and have sorted out videotaping rights for the masq. Last thing we need is to be without a video of the show *again*.

i think so

Yeah ... but since it's Hobbystar I'm not putting too much faith in their "arrangements" ...

Well, I will probably have all or some of the Masq on tape this year. I can burn it to dvd too ^_^
