Last year I lined up at 9pm the night before the opening panel and don't regret it at all, even considering that people who showed up within hours of the panel still got in. It was a great time and part of the whole experience for me. I've waited in line for Star Wars before, but never a truly dedicated overnight stay like that. I figured why not this time. Got in a few cat naps throughout the night. I didn't consider it necessarily a badge of honor, rather, just something I'm glad I did to experience the whole of Celebration and be one of the first to get in. There was definitely an atmosphere of camaraderie among everyone there, everyone cheering when one of the horizontal metal barrier posts would fall on the ground (anybody remember that?), discussions abound concerning all things Star Wars that I've never had in my life, then, finally once the chutes started moving one guy yelled out "First transport is away!" and everybody cheered like they did in ESB. In my adult life I don't think I ever felt more comfortable and at peace with where I was or what I was doing than being amongst everyone there. The chills I felt during the initial sequence of the trailer, then the eruption of applause once we all heard "Chewie, we're home", all after that night of waiting and knowing what's about to happen over the next four days. Guess you had to have been there. Changed my life. Granted, I was 28 at the time and went by myself, so lining up was easy to do. And indeed, no matter what, there will always be a queue for the actual queue, so might as well give people a safe environment to do that in. I understand the frustration someone might feel if they are not able to do that, but to get all bent out of shape and act like the rules should be adjusted so they can be accommodated is ridiculous. And the language some people are using, not just about the lines but also the schedule, prices, layout, people saying they are "gutted", swearing off Celebration as a whole, wanting refunds and going on tirades about it, just being overly dramatic about it. People need to get over themselves. It is what it is.
