Just noticed this in the WonderCon Quick Guide (was looking through it, making myself jealous!)

JOIN US NEXT YEAR!
WonderCon Anaheim 2018
March 23–25 at the Anaheim Convention Center

I thought I'd get things started early (okay-I want to be able to add a calendar link!)

And, it isn't Easter weekend!

It all started back in 1960 when a group of 61 Anaheim business leaders organized to determine what they could do to make the city a year-round tourist destination. Calling themselves the Anaheim Visitor and Convention Bureau (now Visit Anaheim), their goal was to capitalize on Disneyland's success and their solution was to build a convention center.

The Anaheim Convention Center (ACC) opened July 12, 1967 at a cost of $15 million and celebrates its 50-year anniversary this year. Originally, the center featured 400,000 square feet, but now with the latest addition of ACC North, the convention center joins the elusive “one-million-square-foot-club.”

Let's take a trip down memoy lane of the last 50 years.

With Comic-con Pro-Reg conducted so early, before Returning Attendee Reg this time around, does anyone have any insight on if Wondercon Pro-Reg might come before Wondercon Attendee reg also?

I'm not sure it's necessary. WonderCOn doesn't sell out nearly as fast as SDCC.

With the holidays right around the corner (not to mention Comic-Con Returning Registration this Saturday!), we thought we’d put you in a WonderCon state of mind with a look back at the 2017 show, which was held March 31–April 2 at the Anaheim Convention Center, via a massive photo gallery.

It’s not too early to think about next March, when WonderCon returns to Anaheim on March 23–25 for another big show. Our first special guest announcements are coming soon, followed by the WonderCon Anaheim 2018 badge sale and the opening of hotel reservations. Bookmark Toucan for complete information on the 2018 show and be a part of one of the country’s best comics and pop culture events, held in a beautiful Southern California setting!

And now … on with the show! Here’s a few “outtakes” from WonderCon Anaheim 2017. Click here to see the special 100-image photo gallery and get ready for WonderCon Anaheim 2018!

Never been to WonderCon Anaheim? Curious about the who, what, where, when, and why? Well, you’re in luck because we’re here to guide you through the 5 W’s of WonderCon Anaheim 2018!

WHO

WonderCon Anaheim is brought to you by the same people who put on Comic-Con in San Diego!

WHAT

Comic-Con’s sister convention, WonderCon Anaheim, features 900+ exhibitors in a 412,000 square foot (!) Exhibit Hall filled with comics, original art, toys, and merchandise from many popular artists and retailers. Attendees can expect exclusive programming from movie and television panels, the top comics publishers in the country, anime, autographs, games, the Masquerade, and portfolio review. WonderCon Anaheim offers the complete convention experience!

WHERE

The newly expanded Anaheim Convention Center! 800 W Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92802. The Anaheim Convention Center is also in close proximity to Downtown Disney, Disneyland, and Disney California Adventure.

WHEN

Friday, March 23 – Sunday, March 25, 2018. Spring time! Last year, the weather was a perfect 72 degrees. Obviously, we can’t make any guarantees (hello, mother nature!), but it’s safe to say we can expect a similar weather pattern.

WHY

Because we are dedicated to spreading awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms through the presentation of conventions. WonderCon Anaheim gives you the opportunity to engage on a deeper level with artists, writers, and publishers in an expansive Artists Alley/Small Press Area and through Q&A engagement at many of our popular panels featuring writiers and talent from the latest film and television releases!

HOW (BONUS!)

Save time, don't wait in line! Buy your WonderCon Anaheim badge by February 20, 2018 and it will be shipped to you in advance! To purchase your badge, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, click on the “Registration Info” tab, and choose the “Purchase Badges” option under the WonderCon Anaheim section.

Once again you have to login to the Member ID account to buy your badges. Yuck. I'll have to prepare for the credit card company setting a fraud alert on my card since I'm buying multiple badges in a row. Sigh...

Purchased my badge moments ago. Love how I didn't have to rush to get it.

That is the only thing I don't like about this system.

Did I miss the Pro Registration or does that open up after the regular/open registration?
