Do yourself a favor and fly up a day early and play at PBXplosion on Friday.
I flew over for my first LL event last year and it was awesome. I was super bummed that I did not plan to arrive early enough to make it too check out PBEx or even arrive early enough to take part in the beer congress. This year, I'll be coming in on Thurs AM...lessons learned.

I've been going since LL V, granted I live in Chicago, but this is my 5th year and meeting awesome people is a guarantee, don't worry about it, you'll meet someone generous enough to share their tent or room with you on day 1.
