From the new CCI webpage:

"Everyone with a Member ID will be notified via email when WonderCon Anaheim badges go on sale.  We suggest that you log in to your Member ID account and make sure you have not selected to opt-out of email communications from Comic-Con International. You will not be notified of WonderCon Anaheim badge sales if you have selected this opt-out."

Also, on their front page, it states: Badges go on sale January 2013!

So, just to be sure, is it the same Member ID as for Comic Con International?

They said this last year too. You had to use your CCI Member ID to buy a WonderCon badge.

I believe that they were a bit more lax with it last year since the member ID system was closed for a while in January(?).  My guess is that they will be more stringent with member ID's only registration this year.

My memory could be wrong though.

Didn't they have them available at the door in 2012?
Are they expecting it to sell out?

Usually available at the door - never know for sure though so if you plan to go, you should just buy. From prior experience though, badges are available at the door for a few dollars more.

Also, at the door may get a bit hairy. If you need to have a member ID to get a badge, they'll have to try verifying your member ID, and signing up people who don't have a member ID. Better to buy in advance.

Yeah wasn't required last year - optional. I don't think the badges even had our names printed on them.

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?

have you emailed CCI with this question yet? I assume so

Briarbun, I don't know if it automatically carries over or not, but I have a friend who is a pro. He qualified for SDCC, and then called them up and they arranged it over the phone that he also qualified as a pro for WonderCon. So I agree with Alyssa: contact CCI and ask them if the qualification can carry over.
