Please note that I did not write this, but I just found it on-line. The opinions, reviews, and directions are provided by the author of the guide, as I only go downtown abt once a year, so I'm hoping the info is accurate. I don't know who wrote it, as there doesn't seem to be a name attached.


Call ahead and check the info w/ the restaurants themselves.

This is Miyah Sundermeyer again and I am posting a vlog on youtube for people coming to Dragon Con for the first time.  I had some tips.

Hi, Dragoncon newbie here with a quick question about the autograph signings:

Does the convention/any of the vendors sell photos and etc. of the guests that can be used for signing or do we need to bring our own materials for them to sign? I have been at conventions that do both and I don't want to be without a photo/item to sign if I don't bring something with me.

Thank you!

Con-Voluted Presents:
3nd Annual Con Voluted "A.B.C." Room Party and Dragon*Con Kick off Party.
Thursday Night 9pm until ???
Hyatt Hotel - Room TBA

What is an A.B.C Party?? Anything But Clothes. To gain entrance to this exclusive party come dressed in Anything But Clothes. Garbage Bag, Duct Tape, Police tape, Bumper stickers, Playing Cards, Bandages, A Towel, A shower curtain.

It does not matter as long as it is NOT clothing. What can you cover (or not cover) your naughty bits with and still make it to the party? Creativity and last minute planning is highly encouraged. Wrap yourself in some cardboard and come on over.

This party has grown exponentially every year and this year we are planning our biggest and best A.B.C. Party yet. Last year over 500 people tried to get into this party. Lines were long and the rooms were crowded. This year we have secured one of the largest Suites at the Hyatt for this party. More Room, More Party!!

From 9-10 This party is for VIP`s Only.

From 10 till 12 this is an "ABC" party. You must be in an "ABC" outfit to get in.

From 12 on - Open to all. No ABC outfit required however the room WILL fill up and people in ABC outfits will be given priority entrance over those not.

CON-Voluted will be providing a DJ and Free Booze.

A limited number of VIP passes are available (VIP always gets in or at least to the very front of the line if the room is just too crowded). Details on how to get a VIP pass on the Facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/476914849002776/

You do NOT have to have a VIP pass to attend. Everyone is welcome however once the room fills up, Priority entrance will be given to VIP pass holders and people in ABC outfits.

Is there any fee? Nope. Everyone is welcome.
Do I have to wear an ABC outfit? From 10-11pm yes. After 11, Nope.
BRING ID. We will have security checking ID`s at the door. No ID - No Entry. This Party is 21+ only!!

Please Invite all of your friends attending DragonCon to attend. Help us get the word out.

Random questions...

My husband and I just decided today that we'd be attending Dragon*Con this year. It's our first convention ever, not to mention our first trip to Dragon*Con. Due to the late decision on our part, the only hotel where we could find a room was the Airport Hilton.

We will be driving, so will have our car available, but I know literally nothing about where the Airport Hilton is in relation to D*Con itself, or if it would be more advisable to take the hotel's shuttle to the Con or our own vehicle. What would you suggest? (We are fairly sure we'll be able to leave our kids at home with a relative, so being able to participate in any adult/after-convention activities is something we're really looking forward to.)

Also, any tips, insight, advice, etc. for a con newbie would be most welcome.

I would like to be a dealer, anyone know if it's full? I've read everywhere they fill up fast but no official answer if it's full now or not.

For all those Con goers always looking for a drug store, CVS will be opening a 13,000 sq. ft. store at 235 Peachtree Street - basically at Peachtree Center.


Let the lines for pain and allergy medicine, bandaids and blister pads begin!

I plan to fly in from Massachusetts. I'm wondering if anyone has had good luck finding cheap flights.
I also and wondering how one gets to the con without a car from the airport. :)

Come see old friends and make new ones during the annual CON*tourage “MEET & GREET” at Dragon*Con, Thursday night from 8 p.m.-10 p.m.

In addition to this being a great time to mingle, it’ll be a great opportunity for all of us to check out the brand-spanking newly renovated HYATT “Twenty-Two Storys” bar, formerly known as the “Parasol Bar,” before the place gets packed for the Labor Day weekend. Doesn't matter if you've partied with us before or not....come introduce yourself!

----> It’ll be easy to find CON*tourage…just look for the CON*tourage RED FLAG in the bar area and for people wearing "CON*tourage CRUE".

Also, this will be a PRIME TIME to pick up a RESERVED VIP or REGULAR PARTY PASS for the late-night CON*tourage Parties (for those that'll have them waiting.)

MEET & GREET Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=209287595779554

If you DON'T have a party pass already reserved.......we’ll be doing a “lottery-style” drawing for a limited amount of Regular Party Passes to be given away at 9:30pm, if you want to try and still get one (both parties are 21+ and passes are required for entry)

Check out the newly renovated HYATT bar here:

I'm a total newbie and this is my first Dragon*Con and would appreciate your assistance.  Can you pre-purchase the celebrity autographs?  How does one purchase them either before or during the con?
[identity profile] nomeci.livejournal.com
I have never been to D*C before so please bear with me... I have been trying to read through some of the posts over the last week or so to get some idea of what all happens, but I am still a bit lost. I have seen several posts about Froggy pics, etc. Are you allowed to take pics of the celebrities with your own camera? Can you even get close enough to see them lol?

I am about to head to the homepage and see if I can find some other information there, but thought I would post this first.
