VidCon: One conference center, three days and all of your favorite YouTube stars.

Whether you're a VidCon regular or counting down the days to your first visit, it's never too late to make sure that you're fully prepared for the experience of seeing Ingrid Nilsen, Jack Howard and more of the biggest stars on the Internet in person. Luckily, Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla – better known online as Smosh – know exactly what you're going to need to get the most out of your weekend.

And as VidCon regulars themselves, these two know what they speak of, so you know you can trust them.

Some of Hecox and Padilla's recommendations are practical – hydration is key – and some of them are personal: Slow walkers of the world, Hecox has a bone to pick with you! But when it comes down to it, simply showing up is the most important tip of all.

"Don't forget to actually go," Hecox advised. "Bring yourself to VidCon, that's the most important step."

We're sure we're not the only ones who are excited to check that one off the list. See the full schedule of the Anaheim, California, conference here, and find out which of your favorite YouTube celebs will be in attendance.
