On Saturday, Sept-1st, at 11 AM, the Registration Line for Dragon*Con-2007 stretched from the entrance, on the right, 3/4 of the way around the Hyatt Hotel block. After reaching the entrance there was still another 200+ feet of "cattle-shoot" to be negotiated inside the registration room. At this point, it was taking 2+ hours to reach the registration booths. By Monday morning more than 35,000 had registered to attend D*Con-07, probably an all-time record attendance.
Views of the typical crowds that congregated in the Marriott Marquis' Entrance Lobby during the day and evening at D*Con-07. At times, the fire marshal and police were restricting admission to the hotels due to the large crowds and congestion in the hotel's lobbies. The "automatic activating" lobby doors at the Marriott Marquis Hotel stood open, without closing, for over 12 hours!, due to the constant flow of attendees moving in and out of the Hotel during the day and evening on Saturday and Sunday, as seen in the left-view above.
