    At the Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, California, the mall officially allows people to start lining up INDOORS right outside the Apple store starting 9 PM tonight.

    I suspect most of the Malls with an Apple store in Norcal will do that because this is truly Apple country, lol.

    PLEASE post the hours and camping out conditions in your area, here.

    Are they allowing people indoors at that time?

    I’ll be on my couch starting about 8:00 am tomorrow. It’s mere steps to the door where the UPS guy will stand, ring the doorbell and when I open the door, he will hand my my phone. Oh, and I’m sleeping in my bed tonight with my wife, instead of sitting on a concrete floor with hundreds of strangers.

    Good luck to all the campers. Enjoy the experience!

    In past years it has varied. The mall officially opens at 5am. Sometimes they've taken pity on us and let the line inside. I don't know what will happen tonight.

    They said to me they won't allow people inside until 8am, which sucks. But who told me that were two indian ladies that worked on Customer Services. I guess they don't even know what that line is for (no racism lol). But I'll stop by today and try to talk to a manager or something like that.

    Hey, I’ve been there, done that. Twice. I am not doing the Apple Store campout this year, I highly recommend that every Apple fan does it at least once. It really is a cool experience.

    I don't think I'll be there this evening, but definitely before 5 am. Getting ready right now, I'm even preparing an awesome meal to pack in an insulated Bento box:

    Roasted vegetable soup
    Lentils with sweet potato, butternut squash and onion
    Millet cooked in vegetable broth
    Dried mangoes for dessert
    I will also have a big thermos of coffee and a water bottle

    Because good food makes all the difference, hehehe...

    Maybe I'm not a real fan. I would always choose to sleep in my own bed and have someone bring it to me lol

    That was initially my plan but the delivery date was not compatible with my schedule so I had to choose in store pick up. Plus, from what I hear, this will be fun.

    It might also make you popular with your fellow campers. Bring enough to share.

    Princeton, NJ Quakerbridge Mall is not even allowing people to line up until 4am! This is going to make things REALLY interesting this year... glad I pre-ordered.

    Here in Casper Wyoming outside the Verizon store. We are too small for an Applr Store. Not a person in sight. The benefits of living in a smaller town.

    T-Mobile store in Virginia Beach. Fourth in line here, lined up at 5am. First person arrived at 9:30 last night.
    Apple store around the corner has had a line since yesterday afternoon and is looooong.

    Just saw the Scottsdale Quarter store on the morning news. Lots of people there. Not sure about the other Phoenix Apple Stores. I’m sure they’re all packed with campers, though. They always are - especially Arrowhead, since it’s the only store on the west/north part of the valley.
