How to deal with friend that invites others along?

I have a friend i've known for almost 6 years now and recently we started taking weekend trips to a comic convention every March since we only see each other twice a year. She's invited someone she's friends with and her 3 year old daughter to come with us, i've never met her and i really don't want to spend my weekend with someone's fussy 3 year old. How do you handle something like this?

The convention isn't until March so she very well could changer her mind about the whole thing or something could come up but my friend seems pretty certain she's going to go with us.
If someone new comes into the picture i can't be myself around them until i get to know them, so i probably will be really quiet the whole time if she comes. I don't want to be at the convention, her daughter get fussy, tired, and bored after an hour and want to leave. She probably goes to bed early too, we don't and what if she can't sleep because she's somewhere new?
I just don't know how to deal with all of this. My brain keeps wondering what if this happens, or what if this. Maybe i'm being mean about all this but, i did book the hotel and got everything all set so we'd have one close enough to the convention and maybe it's because i don't have my own kid but i guess i don't understand why you'd bring a 3 year old to a comic con.
