Although we go into a lot more detail on our Breaking Down the WonderCon 2016 Programming Schedule podcast, the real answer is that you first need to know how big the panel rooms are.

For instance, although Warner Bros. on Saturday afternoon is likely to be more popular overall than Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., because the WB panel is in the Microsoft Theater which holds roughly 7,100 people and S.H.I.E.L.D. is in 408AB which only holds 1,000 – WB is more than likely going to be the easier panel to get in to.

From the Los Angeles Convention Center site (for the first and second floors) and L.A. Live site, here’s a look the capacities for each panel room:

Microsoft Theater: 7,100

Room 151: 1,020

Room 152: 1,020

Room 403AB: 1,000

Room 408AB: 1,000

Room 515A: 650

Room 515B: 650

Room 502A: 550

Room 502B: 550

Room 150: 360

Room 411: 299

It’s worth noting that these numbers may not be exact – for instance, CCI may choose to utilize a smaller portion of the Microsoft Theater – but this should give you a good idea of what to expect.
