Note that badges will be available for purchase online only, and will not be available for purchase on site! Click here for badge purchase FAQ for WonderCon 2016. Also be aware that children age 12 and under are free with a paying adult, though you’ll need to register them on site.
Last year, 3-Day badges and Saturday badges sold out about a month in advance, so don’t wait too long to purchase your badge! Friday and Sunday badges were still available up until when WonderCon began, then sold out quickly. You will need a Comic-Con Member ID to purchase your badge. If you do not already have one, click here to register for a Member ID. Once you have your Member ID, click here to purchase your WonderCon 2016 badge.
Adult 3-Day badges were $55 last year, while Friday and Saturday 1-Day Badges were $27, and Sunday 1-Day Badges were $16. That’s a $10 increase from last year for 3-Day Badges, a $3 increase for Friday and Saturday single day badges, and a $2 increase for Sunday single day badges.
If you’re interested in volunteering at WonderCon (and getting a free badge in return), Volunteer Registration is open! To sign up, log into your Member ID account, click on the “Volunteering” tab, and you will see the link for WonderCon 2016 Volunteer Registration. This is on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to sign up before the list fills up, like it already has for San Diego Comic-Con 2016!
Hotel reservations do not appear to have opened yet, nor has the Press application period opened. We’ll keep you updated on this.
