WonderCon 2020: April 10-12, Anaheim
« on: March 21, 2019, 04:51:05 PM »
Back on Easter Weekend. (From the program guide: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login)
And I'm glad about that, since that'll make a convenient excuse for NOT getting together with the in-laws.

Thanks for the heads up! I am sorry to see if back on Easter weekend again, but I am guessing that they had trouble scheduling.

That means all the non-con hotel rates will be higher >:(.

I’m not so sure about that; I seem to recall hotel rates (both con and not) being lower in past years when it fell on Easter. It’s not like a Thanksgiving or Christmas (or even a Memorial or Labor Day).

I had a great time at my first Wondercon this year, so am happy to see early planning dates!  This is definitely on my list for next year...thanks!

After having just sort of looked from afar at Wondercon over the years, I am really looking forward to next year and making forward plans to go. Wondercon is very different from SDCC, and has many of its own charms as I am coming to know.  I really liked being able to look down from the balconies both outdoors and indoors and see all the wonderful costumes.  The area at the fountain, where photo shoots were nonstop, the varied food trucks...the layout of the hotels...Yes...I think I can place Wondercon on my con list.  :D

Don't forget the awesome stadium/graduated seating in the Arena, making any seat a good seat!

Even while planning for SDCC, I still have my eye toward Wondercon and squirreling a little bit of money away each pay period. Since this will be my 2nd visit, I now have the 'lay of the land' and can have even more fun.   :D

Now that I have been to Wondercon and SDCC in the same year, I can really compare the two.  Wondercon was a bit of a revelation to me-- it was much more laid back, had a much higher percentage of fans in costume, and it was far easier to get into panels.  The selection of panels was smaller, yet I found I lot to see.  SDCC is the ultimate.  It is a city unto itself, and the excitement cannot be matched.  I fear that now I must go to both--as well as several local cons.  I adore the con scene.  It is work, yet it brings me such energy! :)

I haven't been to WonderCon since 2013, I'm really feeling like I need to go in 2020.  Last year Planet Comicon in Kansas City was the same weekend and that one is closer so I chose the less expensive route, but this year they are on different weekends so I'm going to go all out and do both.

It is much easier to get an artist of Jim Lee's caliber  to sign something at WC than  SDCC. Therefore, I  go to WC to enjoy the B20 type panels and  autographs.  SDCC for me is all about exclusives and off-sites.
