It looks like they are going a bit faster than they had planned with getting ready for the re-sale.  The login for member ID updates seems to be up again.  Crossing my fingers.  Thank you for the updates!

So, I have news. According to the email that I received back from The Powers That Be, "We anticipate reopening the Member ID system in 4-5 weeks. Please visit You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login frequently for updates."

They also said: "We are unable to accept a waiting list to be notified of the resale date. The resale date will be announced via email to everyone who has signed up for a Member ID. Please be sure to check your Member ID account and select the “Show My Info” option to see if you are currently opted-out email correspondence.  It is very important that you opt-in to all email correspondence if you want to be notified of the next resale date."

So, they will allow those that did not previously have Member ID's to participate in the resale. That sucks, but what can you do. I just figure as long as I can get my friends and I all on the same days, then we can just go to Disneyland or something on the days that we aren't at the Con.

Andrew, I'm not sure that's what it says. You posted:

This does NOT imply that they are opening up Member IDs again or that they will allow others to participate. I think there's a very good chance they won't open up new Member IDs again until after the Cono.

I got another reply, but this time it does not contain any information that is not readily available (if available at all).

Basically, they are being extremely tight-lipped about the resale procedure. They said that they will send the email out sometime in the future containing the details for the resale (date, time, procedure, etc.) and that, until such time as this happens, there is no official statement to be made on the matter.

They did however say that there is a good chance (unofficially) that we (as the buyers) will be able to use another persons member ID to get their tickets at the same time that we get ours, that being said, they won't say if there is a limit or not.

I know that this is probably not what everyone wanted to hear, but in this case, any news is good news, as it will give us all a little more information to help us prepare.

If they're being tight-lipped about it, then that probably means they're still deciding on the process. Although even if they'd decided on the process, I'd expect them to be tight-lipped about the date/time.

Yeah, I guess that's only fair. What isn't fair though, is how I am going to wipe the floor with the rest of the contenders!  ;)

So, I've been thinking (uh oh, right?), and I'm kind of wondering: because the badges sold out SO FAST, do you all think that it is possible that more badges will have been refunded simply by grace of the fact that people were in such a mad dash to get them in the first place that they didn't bother to make sure that they were able to go, figuring that it was better to be safe than sorry?

I just say this because I have been doing research and, based on what I can only guess was a badge buying disaster last year, there were roughly 1500 4 day badges, and a smattering of single days as well. And those were done in intervals throughout the day.

So, anyway, what do you think?

*very fuzzy math alert*

i think they'll be more badges for sale but maybe not for he reason's you wrote about.  last year they did a combo deal of hotel & badge in june ish.  This year they're selling those rooms as 'early bird' rooms so they will have to do less combo deals later one & can add those badges to the re-sale pile.

from personal experience, there was only single days left during last years resale & no saturdays by the time i got in. but i was medium fast that day

I would be inclined to think there would be LESS badges at the re-sale because the people who took the time to make a Member ID are more likely to go plus it was (hopefully) not as easy for the scalpers to get involved.

Last year "anyone" could pick up a badge so between the scalpers and people who weren't sure but picked up a badge anyways only to change their minds, there was a good amount refunded...

I hope there's less badges available for re-sale and that it sells out in a few minutes so we can move forward to SDCC.
