I am working feverishly to try to find out what stores have midnight releases, because I am as anxious as you all are. I would suggest going to BestBuy.com and typing in "World of Warcraft". It takes you to a page where you can pick your state and city. Once you do that, it takes you to your local store page which might list whether or not they are having a midnight release!
You can also call your local store and simply ask, as they would have the most accurate insight.

I called muliple local Best Buy stores and none of them even know what their store hours will be a week from now. I even went to a store and asked what I assume is a manager, yellow shirt at the door, and he had no idea and referred me to a poster on the front door that only showed Novemenber. I don't think I'm asking very much to want the associates, let alone a manager, to know their store's hours of operation, especially during the holidays. They aren't even sure whether or not they are going to be open at midnight, all they could do was shrug their shoulders and refer me to the website, which is very vague when listing midnight releases at stores. Why can't the site just have a drop down menu on a calendar where you can click the day, choose your location, and it'll show you which stores are open at midnight and their hours of operation for that day. I don't think the individual store pages are even updated for special events, even those that have midnight hours. That's why Gamestops beat Best Buy in sales cause they know when they are open, at the very least.
