Here it comes! Preliminary instructions for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con open registration is coming next Saturday, 2/21 at 9 am pst. As usual links will be revealed later and you’ll get into a waiting room before being able to get in and purchase tickets. Only THREE PER PERSON this year, which is tough. Here’s some rough guidelines:
Only those with a confirmed Member ID account are eligible to participate in Open Online Registration. If you purchased the Preview Night option during attendee preregistration, you are not eligible to participate in Open Online Registration or buy badges for others.
You can buy badges for up to three people – yourself included – during your registration session. Each person must have thier own Member ID and must be eligible to participate.
In order to buy a badge for another attendee, you will need their Member ID and LAST NAME. You do not need their Member ID password.
You must enter the EPIC waiting room before 9:00 AM Pacific Time. You will need your personal registration code to enter.
Only use one browser tab or instance when trying to purchase badges. Multiple browser tabs will confuse the registration process and cause your transaction to fail.
But more details in the link.
There will be spinning beachballs, there will be frustrations, desk punching, tears and gritted teeth. but it will all be worth it because IT’S COMIC-CON PEOPLE!
