I went early to Fan Expo because I thought there was going to be a huge line, and there was, and I was in the very front... but of course, I ended up waiting almost 2 hours.

Is it worth it to go early and wait, or will the pickup always be moderately accessible? (By that, I mean no more than 45 minutes-ish of line waiting.)

On the topic of allergies, I'm allergic to a LOT of things and obviously carrying around both mild and severe allergy medication/equipment. It's pretty much common sense but some people forget... and basically pay the price. I can't remember if AN stocks peanuts or stuff like that, but yeah... just... try not to bring it into a crowded convention.

I don't know if this has been talked about but please, please don't play your music obnoxiously loud in the hallway. I'm not sure if it's just me but this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Especially in crowded hallways! A moving, busy hallway is not a dance party zone.
reg opens at 2 and I suggest getting there to line up by 1 at least, and then you'll probably be waiting 2 hours (thats how long we waited last year arriving at 1), but if you wait until 2 or later, you maybe waiting for 3+ hours (I knew some people who came at 5 and waited about that long, missed all the events for Friday pretty much), so it depends if you want to wait in a moving line or a standing line, cause if you get there at 12, you're still waiting 2 hours, but your standing in the same spot the whole time...
