Queue Process

We recommend Fans take W 31st St. to 7th Ave. for The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, as that will lead directly to the queue locations. There will be two morning queue locations for entry into the building, the South Concourse and North Concourse. The queues will open at approximately 8:00 AM on Friday and Saturday and Staff will be onsite to direct you into the queues. We strongly discourage overnight camping.

For Fans with Medical Assistance needs, we will have a reserved section for the queue available when it opens in the morning. Please head to the front of the queue. If you have any questions, our onsite Staff is available to assist you. Please note: the Medical Assistance queue does not provide you with the ability to skip the line and does not guarantee seating or entry, but provides a queue separate from the main crowd fort those who require Medical Assistance.


A portion of the seats in Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden will be filled via the pre-show lottery. Please arrive 35 minutes prior to the panel start time to gain entry. When you arrive, look for the “Reserved Seating” line and you will have access to a specific section of the theater. Remember to arrive on time – if you arrive after the scheduled start time, we can't guarantee your spot will still be available.

If you’d like to see a panel at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden and did not win the lottery, seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. As long as you have your NYCC badge for that day, you can head straight to the venue in the morning or throughout the day.
