Avoid ATMsHall H isn't the only place where you will find outrageous lines. Something as simple as the ATM could potentially end up being a half hour of standing around. On your walk to the Convention center you should try to find a bank ATM and just bring cash with you to the center. You don't want to miss a chance on a SDCC exclusive because you were standing in an ATM line.

Load Up On Vitamins And SleepWhen you're at an event like Comic Con; it's very easy to get overly excited. The event is basically Geek Mardi Gras. It's easy to find so much to do that you end up not actually sleeping for days at a time. Remember to pace yourself. Sleep and Vitamins are key in a successful con experience. You don't want to wake up Saturday and feel so sick and tired that you end up sleeping through the last two days. Less is always More.

BathroomIf the ATM lines are bad, you can only expect the bathrooms to be much much worse. Beyond long lines, you also will have to prepare for them to get increasingly dirtier and grosser as the week goes on. Always use the bathroom at your hotel before walking to the convention center. You'll thank me later.

Plan Your Schedule In AdvanceWhen you check in at Comic Con you will receive a book full of everything. Events, Panels, Special Sales, etc. It's easy to get overwhelmed and start running around trying to see everything. You'll get much more done if you take the time to sit down and plan out your days on paper.
It's also really helpful if you create a plan B. Sometimes Panels get filled up or Events sell out. Always have a back up party or panel to attend.

Hall H NightmaresThe most exciting stuff at Comic Con typically occurs in Hall H. If you're interested in one of these panels, just be prepared to stand in a long line throughout the day. There's only so many people allowed in the room at a time. Good advice is not to allow this time in line to be completely wasted, talk to the people around you. Don't make a big fuss about minor issues like someone holding a spot for their friend. You'll find that Comic Con Karma exists and kindness to something small will come back tenfold this particular week.
