Don?t get me wrong I loved CV! For the most part I enjoyed it and look forward to C6. This thread is for those like me that need to vent a little. Hopefully the mistake made this year will not be made again. Maybe I am the only one that feels this way. 1. What was up with the queue lines? I understand they didn?t want a mad dash for the merchandise but even if you didn?t want to go through the exhibit hall first, they still made you go through the line. I missed a panel the first day because they made me sit through the entire line just to find out it was only to get in the main exhibit hall. Every time I tried to get out of the line I was yelled at by security. On Sunday I had to sign in early for pre costume judging. I had to fight with the security guard to let me go straight to the room on the first floor without going to through the entire queue line again! He kept saying that room is restricted! I ended up just ignoring him and went in anyways. 2. Hotel arrangement. I stayed in the Hilton Orlando which was a really nice hotel a mile from the convention center. The problem was, whoever plan CV decided a mile was close enough to walk ever day so no shuttle service. Most days I walked this route twice in a hot costume. That?s 4 miles a day not including the amount I walked at the convention center. 3. The mixer party was a failure. I was there 10-10:30 so maybe it was better earlier or later. On one side you had a dj with 2 kids dancing. Then on the other side everyone was crowded around a few fans fighting with lightsabers. Did anyone really enjoy this? No thought was put into this party and it showed. There is more but this was a start. I do feel better after venting.
