This week Rob and Maria recap the crazy fun time they has at San Diego Comic Con! The discussion centers around what it’s like to attend Comic Con with more experience under your belt, and the importance of Hotel location as it relates to planning out your day.
From there, they talk about the debacle that was the collectibles and Hall H lines. Attendees were tremendously disappointed by line management, and the admittance of counterfeit wristband holders into Hall H. They also talk about whether or not the [...]
Comic Con 2017 is officially almost a week in the books, but the memories are still fresh. This year was my second year in a row attending Comic Con, and was by far my favorite. I was able to check out almost all of the off-site events, and interact with a ton of other con attendees. For the most part, people in attendance were just as stoked as I was to be there, and it really showed.

For correlation, there’s usually about 150,000 people on site for Comic Con during that time [...]

The hotel is being billed as an “immersive experience” meaning guests will essentially be treated to a Star Wars version of West World.
Disney is saying that all “cast members” will be in costume and in character. This means once you’re in there, there will be no breaking of character. All guests will also apparently be given a specific storyline that’s designed to “touch every single minute [...]
