we came in on Monday one year, it was not as great as we thought. Loooooong wait for con to start and friends to show up. that was before wednesday became the new whatever day though. We have found the sweet spot to be Tuesday evening after work. Of course we are only 2.5 hours away. But hey, if you can find plenty to do to start the party on Monday i say DO IT!
Why cant Dragon*Con last all year?

Tuesday to Tuesday has been my schedule since my first DragonCon. I still remember when I was able to *sit* and have a drink in *real* glass with Mortal and Trathor on Wednesday.

Tuesday to Tuesday sounds perfect. Sadly it will be awhile before we're able to pull that off. I think we came in on Wednesday last year or the year before and I found myself a bit wore out by Saturday. Gotta learn to pace the partying.  ;)

You guys are killing me :(
I wish I could take the time off to come on Tuesday and/or Wednesday!
Maybe when I retire in about 20  years by then it will be a whole month of DragonCon!

It's really the only "big" vacation we take every year

 I'm semi-retired and will always come in a day or two early to get my bearings just in case things have changed with newer buildings, street adjustments, etc., Simply getting refreshed before the big events.

Hopefully I will be able to come back next year and if so, I am definitely coming in on Wednesday!
