21 JANUARY 2015
Registration for WonderCon is now open. That includes badges and hotel rooms.
If you've ever wondered why WonderCon is not as big a deal as SDCC, the answer is, well, it's smaller. However, it's in Anaheim now, close to Disneyland, and it is getting bigger - and there are all the usual conventiony reasons to attend: an Exhibit Hall with toys and comics, a slight Hollywood presence, gaming, etc. In other words, there are worse ways to spend the weekend of 3-5 April.
So with that rousing endorsement, you can buy badges now (online only) and book a room through Travel Planners. And you can do it peacefully, with a nostalgic pang for the days when signing up for San Diego Comic-Con looked a little like this.
