I recommend Comic Con even if you don't have badge credentials because there are a ton of events that you can go to around the convention that don't require a badge.
last post and watch the Youtube Videos to see more!) We purchased a few random items, but the Hello Kitty Cafe Food truck was my absolute favorite thing. We used day to to explore the convention on the inside, the space is huge. We were dealing with a personal matter so we decided to not go to the MTV Fandom awards that night, but I regret not going. It looked really awesome and Bella Thorne hosted it.
MTV Fandom awards is one of the few events that requires a badge credential. There is talking that increasingly most offsite events will moving to Badge only, but this year we flew by pretty fine.
Day two was spent trying to figure out Conan. Conan really consists of waiting in line. We had tickets through Iota so we found a spot in line around 6am. The box office didn't open until about 9, but your place in line determines your seat. This is how we got 7th and 8th row seats both nights.
Stay tuned to see what the rest of our stay was like! Too much to fit into just one post :)
