You guys can go back and forth on what it should be called. I'm just glad to have a convention near Disneyland with lots of panels and exhibitors

You make a good point, Bert. While it would be far more convenient for me to attend locally, it's fun hopping back and forth between Disney and a good Con.

That is a pretty cool part about it, and a good reason for keeping it down here.

That was a relatively short discussion (4 posts that discussed what it "should" be called) that ended about 4 weeks ago.  Seems kind of overreactive to describe that as "going back and forth."

Well if Disney but hasbro, their next purchase might be CCI. If that happens then it could be changed to D23

Not sure if I should make a new topic for this, but here's a good article detailing the size of Northern California convention centers:

I don't think this has been posted yet, so I'll go ahead see what you guys think.

I found an interesting article from the San Diego UT newspaper. The article was posted July 17th, a few weeks ago, and is about SDCC and the rent price decrease that the convention got for the next few years, but the writer also mentions Wondercon. In it he interviewed Jay Burruess from the Orange County Vistor and Convention Bureau and claims that Wondercon is returning to Anaheim again next year. While I wouldn't take that as anything offical, I think it's interesting and could be a little telling. But anything can happen and Ill wait for an offical statement from CCI

Think it will be staying for awhile because they changed the name from Wondercon to Wondercon Anaheim.

You have to relax your eyes like you are looking at one of those stereogram posters.  Beer helps too.
