I"m not sure how much the posting on facebook will help- they tend to read it but i'm not so sure on how much they can act on a posting.  As a matter of fact, i don't even see your posting on their fb page.

If you haven't gotten a reply in a few business days, give the phone number a call- they do answer it if they're not busy. In other words the phone might not get answered the first few times you try to call. obviously xmas will throw a wrench into the schedule.

PS, post what they say & the process you have go threw, please

I will definitely let everyone know the outcome once I get the official word. Btw, do you happen to know the phone number to call? I couldn't find one.

As for the process, I actually sent out two emails, one through the website contact form (found at: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) and the other being the press registration address (pressreg[at]comic-con[dot]com). I also went through the CCI member ID site and filled out a contact form with the drop-down message of "I have a question about press registration."

Does anyone know if you are automatically qualified to cover WonderCon if you are cleared for SDCC (as press)? I was approved last year for a press badge to SDCC and my press materials are not due this year. I covered last WonderCon as a civilian so I have articles about the con but no previous press badge for the event.

Basically, what I am asking is: am I pre-approved?

That is so weird. I literally just emailed CCI that EXACT question. I too covered WC as a guest and was approved for SDCC badge, and wanted to know if it carried over for press as WC. It's crazy.

I hope we both get good news.

Orbitz is having a hotel sale right now. If you book any hotel (stays through early April) you can get 15% off the published rate. Book by January 5 using code HAPPYNEWYEAR .

I juts got 15% off my Disney hotel, so I'm happy!  ;D

Just noticed that CCI updated the info for WC badges. It shows the prices for badges (pretty much same as last year). This section is from the link:

You can save money by purchasing your badges online! When WonderCon Anaheim badge registration opens, you will be sent a link to our registration partner, Interactive Ticketing. Please check the prices below for discounts on advance registration.

Is the part about "Interactive Ticketing" new for this year? Either way it looks like they are getting ready for sales this month. Happy New Year!

Guessing it'd be difficult to switch systems w/o screwing over all the peeps who already have badges. Maybe something to keep an eye on for next year if Interactive is a success...

This may also be a test run for 'interactive ticketing' to see how they handle things. Epic could certainly use some competition! That would give CCI more leverage as well.

Getting excited for WonderCon!  ;D

Yes I still think they will use Epic for the cci badges. I remember seeing the blurb in the email re. press passes that " You will be notified via email when EPIC Online Press Registration opens in early 2013."  Agree they might be testing out Interactive. I don't know if they will ever be able to handle the huge crush of people all trying to buy CCI tix at the same time. WonderCon ticket process is way less stressful!

CCI refers to EPIC on the FAQ page on the sdcc pages....

Just got official word that if your cci profile says materials are "not due," you qualify as wondercon press. We are to await a separate email with instructions as to how register.
