SDCC 2018 Hall H Wristbands

by Transmute Jun

Now that the entire San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2018 programming schedule has been released, attendees are making their plans for panels. Many of those plans include a visit to Hall H. As in prior years, SDCC staff will be distributing wristbands in a Next Day Line every night, to allow entrance to the following day’s panels.

However, this year there is a change. Instead of simply handing out wristbands, Comic Con staff will also be scanning badges as they do so. Those who enter Hall H the next morning must have both a wristband and a scanned badge in order to enter. This new security measure means that wristbands will not be transferable, as they go with the scanned badge. This may slow down wristband distribution, so attendees should be patient as they wait for their wristbands.

Wristband distribution times are as follows:

  • 8:00 pm on Wednesday, July 18 for Hall H access on Thursday, July 19
  • 7:45 pm on Thursday, July 19 for Hall H access on Friday, July 20
  • 9:15 pm on Friday, July 20 for Hall H access on Saturday, July 21
  • 9:00 pm on Saturday, July 21 for Hall H access on Sunday, July 22
