WonderCon will take place Friday, April 18 through Sunday, April 20 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Badges for WonderCon Anaheim 2014 went on sale February 14, but certain badge types have sold out! Additionally, some of the hotels have sold out, so a new hotel has been added! Read on for more information.
On the evening of Thursday, March 20, although there was no official announcement from WonderCon, we noticed that Saturday badges were sold out, but that 3-Day badges were still available. That was odd, because usually the 3-Day badges sell out first. Knowing that a sellout of the 3-Day badges wasn’t far behind, we tweeted this information to our followers and posted it on our Facebook and GooglePlus pages, telling them to get 3-Day badges before it was too late.
Sure enough, shortly after noon on Friday, March 21, WonderCon announced on its Twitter and Facebook accounts that both Saturday and 3-Day badges were sold out.
Friday and Sunday badges are still available, but don’t wait too long to get those! Last year, Friday badges sold out on the Friday of WonderCon (back when there were still onsite sales, which there are NOT this year), and will probably sell out much earlier this year, so don’t delay!

If you’re planning on booking a hotel for WonderCon, you should do that soon. Originally, WonderCon only included three hotels: the Anaheim Marriott, the Hilton Anaheim, and the Clarion Hotel. The Anaheim Marriott Hotel and the Hilton Anaheim have rooms available for $119/night, while the Clarion Hotel Anaheim Resort have standard rooms available for $99/night, and studio suites for $119/night.
However, as of the publication date of this article, the WonderCon rate is sold out for Friday, April 18 at the Marriott, Hilton, and Clarion Hotels, and for Saturday, April 19 at the Marriott and Clarion Hotels. Therefore, WonderCon has added a fourth hotel, the Anabella Hotel, which has rooms available for $119/night.
[4/7/14 UPDATE ] The WonderCon rate is now completely sold out for Friday, April 18 through Sunday, April 20 at the Marriott, Hilton, and Clarion Hotels. It is also sold out for Friday, April 18 at the Anabella Hotel. However, WonderCon has added a fifth hotel, Hotel Indigo Anaheim, which has rooms available for $119/night.
[4/10/14 UPDATE] The Anabella Hotel is now sold out for Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19.
[4/12/14 UPDATE] All of the hotels are completely sold out of the WonderCon discount rate, except Hotel Indigo, which only has Sunday, April 20 available. You might still be able to book a room online directly with some of the hotels, but they’re going fast, and you’ll have to pay full price, which is currently $239/night at Hilton, $219/night at Clarion, $203.95/night at Anabella, and $156.58/night at Hotel Indigo. Marriott has no rooms available.
