SDCC 2019 Child Badges Transitioning to Junior Badges
« on: August 09, 2018, 10:22:50 PM »
Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I thought I should post this for anyone that might be looking for more info on the process of how to transition a child badge from 2018 to a junior for 2019 (in order to participate in Returning Registration). The process is pretty straightforward this year and is exactly as Comic Con posted here:

"Did you attend Comic-Con 2018 as a child but are now a junior attendee? Children who attended Comic-Con 2018 with a paid adult attendee that are age 13 or older on July 31, 2018 may be eligible to participate in Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration!

To qualify for Returning Registration, you must create a Comic-Con Member ID account. Make sure to select "Junior" as your membership type! Once you have created a new account and confirmed the email address, log in to your Member ID account, select the “Registration Info” tab, and enter the child badge number from the back of your Comic-Con 2018 child badge."

After entering in the number it says something like "Congratulations! You have completed the Comic-Con 2018 badge validation process..." and you're done!  :)

Will do, had already made a note of it. I will add a link for the July 31 date for reference.

eta: I see the deadline is already listed. Calendar link added for that too. (If there is a better way for me to word that-let me know)

We all grow up eventually, but part of the fun is making sure we never forget the magic of our childhoods! It’s time for Child-to-Junior transition! Click the link for more info.

COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATION UPDATE Validate Your Child Badge with Christopher Robin!

Comic-Con is ex-Pooh-berantly proud to offer one of the most generous child badge policies in the industry! Children age 12 and under are free with a paying adult! Children do not need to register for a Comic-Con Member ID to receive a complimentary badge. That means Pooh Bear, Piglet, and Roo can attend Comic-Con for free, without registering for a Member ID!

Of course, little ones don’t stay little forever! Have you ever wondered when your child will need to start attending Comic-Con with a junior badge instead of a child badge? Is your child turning into a funny-smelling giant like Christopher Robin? To accommodate the transition from child to junior (age 13 – 17), we have set a static date to determine who is considered a child for Comic-Con 2019. If your child was age 12 or under on July 31, 2018, you do not need to buy a junior badge for Comic-Con 2019, and they may still attend as a child with a paying adult. If your child was age 13 or older on July 31, 2018, you must create a Comic-Con Member ID and purchase a junior badge to attend Comic-Con 2019.

Oh, Bother! Think! Think! Think! What to do indeed! To put it simply, children who were 13 or older as of July 31, 2018, and attended Comic-Con 2018 with a paid adult, must purchase a junior badge if they wish to attend Comic-Con 2019. But fear not, silly old bear! They may be eligible for Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration!

So, first things first! A Comic-Con Member ID is required for every badge purchase. If it is indeed time to create a Member ID for your child, please make sure to select "Junior" as the membership type. The junior’s birth month and year will be requested. Click here to sign up for a Member ID today!

Now, let’s play one of Pooh’s favorite games, “Say What You See”: House. Clouds. Lanyard. Comic-Con 2018 child badge. Quick! Grab that child badge you have saved from Comic-Con 2018! You’ll need it for what we’re about to do next.

Once you have created a Comic-Con Member ID and confirmed the email address, grab your 11 o’clock snack (a smackerel of hunny, anyone?) and log in to the newly created Member ID account. Select the “Registration Info” tab and enter the child badge number. Fortunately, your child badge should be near so you don’t have to venture into the Hundred Acre Wood or worry about running into any heffalumps to retrieve it. The badge number is located on the back of the Comic-Con 2018 badge, under the emergency contact phone number. All child badge numbers start with a "900", “901”, or “902” prefix. You will need to select the correct prefix from the dropdown list and enter the remaining characters in the field that follows. You do not need to input the dash. The deadline to validate a child badge is September 6, 2018!

Maybe you’re a step ahead of us and your kid is already set up with a junior Member ID account. If that’s the case, great! You deserve a larger helping from Rabbit’s hunny pot. Just log in to the existing Member ID account and follow the steps above.

If you find that the child-to-junior link isn’t visible, no need to exclaim “Oh, D-D-Dear!” The birthdate may not be in the correct range for child-to-junior validation, or you may have accidentally selected “Adult” for the membership type during account creation. Please use the "contact us" feature well in advance of the September 6, 2018 deadline to correct your membership type or birthdate. Remember, only children who attended Comic-Con 2018 are eligible to participate in the child-to-junior badge validation process. No grown up woozles or imposturous imposters allowed!

Now, validate that child badge before September 6, 2018 and then go out and play a game of Poohsticks!

Hoo-hoo-hoo, let's bounce!

This is a friendly reminder that the deadline for child-to-junior badge validation is quickly approaching! Remember, children age 13 or older on July 31, 2018 must create a Comic-Con Member ID and purchase a junior badge to attend Comic-Con 2019.

A child’s eligibility will first need to be validated using their child badge from Comic-Con 2018. Click here, or read our latest toucan blog here, for instructions on how to complete the child-to-junior process.
 
All eligible child badges must be validated by September 6, 2018. Don’t delay!
 
Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration will be open to all Comic-Con 2018 paid attendees. First-time attendees, professionals, guest of professionals, trade professionals, exhibitors (and exhibitor-purchased attendee badges), volunteers, staff, complimentary passes, and press are not eligible to participate in Returning Registration.

We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Toucan - the official blog of Comic-con and WonderCon Anaheim - for important announcements as we get closer to Comic-Con 2019!
 
Sincerely,
Comic-Con

Comic-Con 2019
Attendee Registration

The child-to-junior validation period is now closed! All child badge validations were due by September 6, 2018. If you have already completed this process, please visit our website frequently for updates about Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration. We highly recommend that you log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and verify that your information is current and up to date. Remember, the Member ID system will close - without notice - in advance of Returning Registration.

Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration is open to Comic-Con 2018 paid attendees only. You may purchase badges for up to three people - yourself included - during Returning Registration. Each person must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID and must be eligible to participate in Returning Registration. You may not purchase badges for others using your own Member ID.

If you did not purchase an attendee badge for Comic-Con 2018, you may participate in Comic-Con 2019 Open Registration. To participate in Open Registration, you must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. The Member ID system will close - without notice - in advance of Open Registration. Make sure you and anyone you wish to buy a badge for has their own confirmed Member ID well ahead of Open Registration or you may be left out! Please keep in mind that not all badges are sold during Returning Registration. There will be badges available during Open Registration.
