Unfortunately it's just the panels so far. When other things, like the Final Fantasy concert, get announced I'll have to make some hard decisions about what I want to see and do. Also can't forget about how quick some of the lines fill up for events... there were a few things I wanted to see last year and if you weren't in line a couple hours early, you weren't getting in.


I MUST see Uematsu's concert! Yeah, I think I'll have to sacrifice seeing a couple of things to make sure I see others...

Thanks for the heads up. Did you order it early on, or a little before they would not take any more for mailing? Just wondering so i know when to expect mine as we are the same state.

I purchased mine in the third tier. They mailed them out from Carol Stream, if that helps you figure out how long it will be. It sounds like they mailed them all out at once this year, instead of in batches like last year.

Silly question, why didn't you have it mailed to you... personally can't stand the badge line. I still remember the year the computers crashed.

Oh and since I haven't seen it mentioned, I saw that they posted a preliminary panel schedule.

Sorry i miss worded that. I did have it mailed to me(got it on the 7th). But i will not be downtown until Friday because of work on Thursday. That is what i meant to say..I hate the badge line and learned my lesson from other conventions to avoid waiting through those lines whenever possible. lol

Yeah I'm not sure what it is, but the badge line is the worst.

Just a few tips for you and the other first timers... have fun and keep an eye out on the main page for the 2014 guidebook. There's a huge link for it on the right side of the screen, but it's not live yet. Also when you're looking at panels remember that this is the 3rd largest con in the country, so space in the panels is limited. I've waited in line a couple hours to secure a seat in the room. That wasn't even for a super popular panel either. There's a ton of stuff to see and do, but it's impossible to do it all, so just pick a couple things that you REALLY want to see/do and then fill in from there. Some people never even leave the dealer room and artist alley.

What are you going as? I hear ya on the last minute stuff, gathering up the last of new camera equipment... I've done other photography stuff before, but this will be my first year taking any type of serious gear to ACEN.

I'll be there all 3 days! If you see me, say hi. I'll be dressed as an X/Y Pokemon Breeder one day, a male version of Madoka("MANdoka!) another, and haven't decided on day 3. I'll be there with a friend, and on "MANdoka" day he'll be dressed as "Bromura". We should be easy to spot!

I'd like to thank CR for helping ACEN get Wake Up, Girls! This show wasn't in my sight till ACEN announced them. Just marathoned the last 9 episode & what great Idol anime. Very much looking forward to seeing them live now.

ACEN 2001 was my first anime con & I've missed maybe two since then, but with the guest list they have this year I'll be there.

LOL. I'm going to ACEN this year because WUG was announced as guests. Reading their forums it seems that CR has a big hand in bringing them to the con.

Too bad because of the timing I missed mail pre-reg deadline orz.
