Pre-registration on Thursday at-first seemed bad, because they moved it across the street and the line for it was outside, so everyone waited in the freezing cold until right before noon. And once it opened at noon, it didn't take more than 15-20 minutes for me to get my badge.
I will say it was better to open pre-reg. at noon, rather than wait until 3:00pm like the years before.
