Is the con 24 hours? I've visited at like 3am and there is still people walking around inside, and a bunch of people are outside still too. Is the dance 24hrs? Are hotel parties a common thing? How crazy does the con get? Tell me 1st hand experiences of the craziest thing you've ever seen. I think I've noticed that every year it seems to get less and less sleep, which I really like.

Mod edit: Its called a dance

The only part of the con that's 24 hrs is the game room and I believe the video rooms. There dealers room and artist alley shuts down usually around 8pm or 9pm (not 100% sure on actual time). However there's always people wondering around because the convention center is still open and people are still welcome to take pictures and what not. The dance isn't 24 hours it starts around 9pm I believe (have yet to attend). Depends on your definition of crazy because it does get fairly crowded during the day time and the line for MusicFest starts pretty early Saturday morning. This will be the 2nd year my friends and I have a hotel room and we decided to stay in the hotels even though we live in SJ because you get the full experience also late at night sometimes you have fans who have like little sing along sessions on convention floors or you get to see unique cosplays that have been worn specifically only for night time (like tron). So far I've only met very friendly and welcoming people which is why I like fanimecon. If you want more specifics on times the best source of reference would be your guide that you get when you pick up your badge, fanime website has some information on times, but not all.

Karaoke runs from 2PM to 2AM this year. I feel like it ended later in previous years?


Certainly, there is plenty to do at night if you are a night owl. Video rooms, gaming, dances, karaoke, etc. Is Stage Zero 24h? Unofficial activities also take place, like room parties, drinking at bars, or even just hanging out in the halls. You'll always see at least a few groups of people at 3AM playing Cards Against Humanity or other games at the large round tables on the Marriott side of the concourse, as well as people sitting on the floor. If you want to stay up, you can easily find something to do.

Though, I recommend getting at least some sleep. :] I haven't been out at the con between around 4~7AM, but between 7~9 or 10AM it's pretty slow, except for things like video rooms. I think most people are sleeping off their late nights at that point. You can always take short naps during the day, too.
