From personal experience and as a longtime Blizzard fan, I had the time of my life when I attended BlizzCon 2013. Nothing beats going into a bar, greeting a complete stranger with "For the Horde!" and having that person buy you a drink just for loving Orgrimmar. On top of that, Disneyland is a few blocks away from the convention. I also had my first In-N-Out Burger during my BlizzCon 2013 trip, which was worth the cost of the whole trip alone. I'd like to add that the food carts that were in front of the Anaheim Center had some of the best grub I ever had in my life. Do it. Do it for the food.
