    How do the bathroom passes at the ballroom work? Can people just sit in there all day long and a seat is saved or do you have to have someone with you to save your spot?

      Since the room isn’t cleared between panels and there is no restroom or food available inside Ballroom 20, they offer passes to leave and get back in within the timeframe of the same panel. But no, they don’t save your seat. So if you’re there with someone, they can hold your seat while you leave for a few minutes, as long as you return before the current panel is over.

      I was able to leave without losing my seat because my wife was there and held it for me while I went to do a few things, grab a snack, and use the restroom. Then when I returned, she left and did the same while I held her seat. Also, it helped tremendously that American Dad and Family Guy were lumped into the same panel, so that offered a 1.5-hour in which I could return, rather than the usual 45-minute span. But it’s dangerous because as soon as the panel ends, they won’t let people in using that pass anymore, as they will have moved on to the next one. And even if you do get back in, if you are alone, you’ll have to fight for a seat again.
