but the pre-reg sale is restricted to people who paid for a badge last year.

my son will turn 13 in early oct which will in all likelyhood be before the general sale...

Im in the same boat with my son he will be 13 in mid November. I cant stand this, I guess its just part of the Comic-Con experience now.   ;D

My DD is in this boat next year, as she turns 13 in November 2013. So I'm watching this thread carefully to see how it goes for all of you!

I'm guessing that cci will have something worked out for 2014 re. kiddos.  Just to be safe, i'd get her a member id this year prior to the con.  that way *if* they do manage to get a tracking system in place for the kids, your dd will be set up.

Actually, she already has a Member ID. I got her one before this year's Con. Since she was born in 2000 (albeit late 2000) she was able to register for one.

I was debating trying to get her a Sunday pass or some such in the general sales/resales this year so she's have a 'paid badge' and then would be able to participate in the pre-sale next year. Of course I have a few months to wait for CCI to make official announcements before I do this. I''d really rather not, because it takes away a 2013 badge from someone who needs it, but if that's the only way to get my DD into the 2014 pre-sales... sigh...

Managed to procure passes...just waiting on the confirmation.  Now to see if I can get passes for my daughter.  Should we wait til we get our e-mail confirmations before getting in touch with them?  Or try for passes during the general sale in 2013 and if that fails then contact them?

I got all 4 single days for my wife, and Thurs, Saturday and Sunday for me (Possible User Error  :( ). I just emailed them right now about my sons badges, the email I got stated to wait till after preregistration. So we will see. i will let every one know what happens. I also sent a request for an additional friday badge, I tried to go back in and get a friday badge but I got the message that I can no longer order any more. I also called the 619 number to see if they could add to the order, a nice young lady informed to contact [email protected] So i will just keep in a good mood and continue to whistle.  ;D

That's great! I'm so glad it worked out for you! I hope your son is able to get the same.

From another thread here:

And since I'm also a parent who had a child turn 12 during the time of the Con this year and will be 13 next year by the time the 2013 show goes on, they said if YOU bought your ticket today and your child is still 12 as of today, they can get in one more year under the free pass. It will be 2014 you need to purchase a junior badge and have a member ID for them.

Anyone want to try and confirm??
...you had me at hello...

I'm watching this development as well.  My son is only ten (turns 11 in January), and 2012 was his 6th or 7th Comic-Con (can't remember his first year).  He would be crushed if he missed CCI because of a weird technicality of attending free as a 12 year old child and not getting in pre-reg as a 13 year old.  I obviously have a few years for CCI to work out the kinks, and I'm fairly confident they will.  When you get the kid's badge they input the kid's information  & connect it to the badge-holding parent; I wouldn't think it would be super difficult for them to keep track of kids.  Maybe they could require children to have their own ID (to be inputted/tracked when the parent picks up the child badge) so CCI keeps track of what children go to CCI and with whom

Here's hoping they're able to work it out for you!

Except that last year my DD went on my badge, and this year it was her Dad who registered her. I'm not sure if CCI is keeping track of both parents, KWIM?

I would also be interested in hearing how it worked out for people this year with their 12-going-on-13 year olds!
