I'm only gonna be able to make it for Saturday unfortunately. This is my 4th time going and it is always a blast. Scandal was amazing last year. I really wish I could go the whole weekend, really bummed about that.

It's been an enjoyable con, and I might attend this year. Though I have to admit that the lines and crowds can be frustrating. I'm considering whether ACen will be worth my time and money.

I'll be going again this year. Will be my 3rd year going. Thankfully i gave like a years notice to go, lol. Well that and having seniority helped. Otherwise two of my coworkers would be going. Did get it to where one can attend either Friday or Saturday though.

I've been staring at my badge since it came in. This will be my first time at ACEN and I'm bringing a few peeps who have never been to a con before. I'm excited as fudge! Been working really hard on anxiety issues and hope to meet people and make some friends. I'll also be bringing tons of tea as I work for a tea company.

I'm going for all three days. I can't wait.

Lines for certain guest meetups can get long, so plan ahead. I remember waiting in line for Richard Epcar and it took about 40 minutes to get to him. In other cases, it took me 5 minutes to get Tony Oliver's autograph. It really depends on how popular and how many meetups are scheduled. Crowds get really bad during the peak hours at the Exhibit Hall, it gets really annoying when people decide to take photos in the middle of the Exhibit Hall.

If anyone is a fan of Evangelion, come join us for the Eva meet-up on Saturday, 4:00 PM @ the exhibit hall.

Considering that tens of thousands of fans will be in attendance, pretty long.

If you've pre-registered, and you're able to, head in Thursday to pick up your badge so you're not wasting precious Friday hours waiting in line. Large events (e.g. masquerade, concerts, dances, popular main stage events) will also have lines, so if you absolutely want to get in (and get decent/okay seats), I would suggest lining up at least an hour before the event starts. Not sure about bag policies anymore (as I haven't returned in six years), but you could bring along a portable gaming system or set of cards and make friends with people surrounding you.

Badge line wasn't that bad last year. Someone in my group was in line maybe 30 mins, on Friday.

Guide Book for ACen is up, though probably not finalized. Appears Eir Aoi is having a concert on Friday. Probably going to have to brave linefest for this.
