We got there around 1 and stood in a holding area for about 25 minutes before they even let us into the 2nd floor. Next year they need to double the area reserved for the venue, it was way way too small this year. The line for a caricature was 45-min to an hour, the lines for the batting cages were at least an hour as was the line for photos with the players. The only thing that didn't have a line were the base stealing lanes. The Q&A room was jammed as well. Had we not gotten into the 2 PM Q&A the event would have been largely a waste of time as we had to leave by 3.
Definitely a fire hazard in there today, disgusting considering that they knew the size of the rooms they had reserved and they kept on selling tickets. My kids complained on the way home that they kids zone was missing the moon bounce and carnival games. They moved to the Convention Center to have more space and didn't have enough room to have all the same stuff they had before.
Despite the long waits and having to fight through the crowds we managed to have a real good time. Haren in particular was a real cool guy. I was concerned about signing him based on his back issues, but personality wise he sure will fit in well here. Funniest thing was seeing him standing next to Gio, he's about two heads taller.
