That is a very good question. I have thought about camping out myself. But here are some thing to concider. If you camp out you will only be in the line to get into the con. Once you get inside you need to get into lines for certain attractions.... store, autographs, celebs on stage, etc. So camping out will only cut down on half of the line. But you could also get a better spot on the inside lines. Once you are throught the door, it is pretty much a foot race. If you have 'da hook up' you could have someone stand in line for you. I would only do that for a few people. Try to be fair to those behind you. You wont have as much trouble thought since you will only be there on Thu-Fri. Sat-Sun will be twice as packed. But T-F will still be busy.
