    Early ticket pickup: You can pick up will call tickets at the convention center from 5 to 8 p.m. today at the second-floor box office. Online ticket sales end today so you still have time to order tickets online and print them at home to save yourself from a line.

    • If you plan on buying photo ops or autographs, do that first before they sell out.

    • Autographs and photo ops are cash only. There will be multiple ATMs on site.

    • Get there early because parking spaces disappear and lines to get in are long. See parking locations and maps.

    • Expect to line up at least an hour early for the most popular celebrity panels.

    • Wear comfortable shoes. There are long lines, many in the heat outside.
