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

This might not be true for all the nearby hotels. I just booked my room at the Doubletree Hilton for about $128 + tax which is a bit cheaper than last year's OnPeak rate (thanks to f22raptor for the lower-rate notice). I feel oddly excited about Wondercon now, even tho it's still 9 months away.

I feel excited about WonderCon as well!  (Not because of booking hotel room reservations since I don't usually stay in a hotel for this con either, ha ha.)  I'm looking forward to a smaller, less crowded con experience with the spirit of San Diego Comic-Con.  I do love checking out WonderCon's extensive Artist Alley and encourage any who attends for the first time in 2020 to check it out too.  XD

I may try to attend next year. My husband isn't keen on adding another con, so I may go it alone. I am doing one this year by myself, so we will see how that goes (It's KCon LA, a K-Pop convention-he has zero interest in that, LOL).

Depending on my work status I may go to WC next year, at least for 1 or 2 days.

Thanks for the tip! I just booked for $116/night, refundable. Right now they have a "long weekender" deal where if you get in on Thursday and stay 4-5 days, Sunday is half off.

I LOVE WonderCon. It's my favorite Con for just experiencing 3 days of pure geek joy. No stress or pressure of SDCC, but the same fancentric vibe. It's the best.

I haven't been to wondercon in several years and was so ready to go this year, but I was a bridesmaid for my friend who had her wedding the exact same weekend.

However, next year I am 100% going!! It's my weekend off work! In the past, I enjoyed it for being less stressful, easy to get tickets and the fact that I do not have to spend thousands on a hotel as I can just commute from home!

So looking forwards to all the conventions of 2020!!

It is exciting to hear about others who are finding out about Wondercon or looking forward to a first visit.  My first visit last year was so much fun.  So different from SDCC and a great add-on. Flying across the country, I didn't know if it was worth it..but, for me..it was!

Love WonderCon!! To me, it's a chill show that's about art and fandom, and not over-run with Ebay flippers trying to mow you over to get to "exclusives". I love that there's actually room to move around in the aisles, especially in Artist's Alley, where you can actually stand there and admire an artist's work without getting shoved out of the way. I saw some good panels this year, too, for Batman's 80th. And of course, the food trucks outside are great! If you're into art and comics, this is the show to check out  :)

I’ve been lucky - I lived in SF when Wondercon was there, and now I live in LA, so the show has been a no-brainer for me. Usually, I only attend for a day and a half or so.

This past July, I took my 11-year-old nephew to SDCC for the full Wed-Sun experience. I was blown away by his engagement with the talent, particularly the artists and the small press folks.

He asked if we could do all of Wondercon in 2020.

How could I say no?

I've gone to WonderCon now several times since it moved to Anaheim.  2020 will be my 21st Comic-Con, and WonderCon feels to me like Comic-Con did when I first started going in 2000.  Comics are a big feature with some movie and tv stuff.  Artist Alley is the almost-too-empty joy where you can literally accidentally stumble on Marv Wolfman's table and find him reading a novel out of boredom & he's excited to chat to someone asking to sign a comic (happened to me last year).  The Exhibit Hall has a plethora of great stuff (albeit few exclusives), and the "off sites" are mostly amazing food trucks!!  Heck, one year I was in line for The Arena during a very busy day (IIRC there was PACIFIC RIM, an X-Men film, and some other great panels), and chatting with someone I learned they were actually on CCI staff in charge of line logistics.  They told me they like to get a feel for the lines to see how smooth things run and what needs to change.  Really cool person.

Some years I've been too busy to attend WonderCon, but it really is a great experience I can't recommend enough.  If someone locally (I live in San Diego) talks about wanting to see Comic-Con, I tell them to go to WonderCon to get a good taste.
