Badge prices just for quick reference:

 BADGE TYPE            Adult    Junior*    U.S. Military/Senior*
 Preview Night    $55.00    $27.00    $27.00
 Thursday            $75.00    $37.00    $37.00
 Friday                    $75.00    $37.00    $37.00
 Saturday            $75.00    $37.00    $37.00
 Sunday                    $50.00    $25.00    $25.00

*Children (12 and under) are free with a paying adult. Juniors (ages 13 -17) pay the reduced junior prices. Active-duty military with ID and seniors (ages 60 years and older) pay the reduced U.S. Military/Senior price. The Military/Senior pricing does not extend to military veterans and dependents. All purchases are subject to a $10 handling fee per member.

So $340 total for 4-Day+PN with the handling fee.

Not too thrill that CCI is going cheap and doing this in house with Queue IT. Heard  it was a nightmare for NYCC event and Merch registration with shady queue bypass links floating around all over the place. Really hate queue it.

I think t's a little misleading to say the registration is thru our ID.  Yes, we sign into to our ID, but from what I can see, we're transferred into QUEUE IT servers.

They used queue IT for CCSE, and it was ok.  Granted it wasn't the same amount of traffic, but I think it will be ok.  I for one will be logging in about 5 minutes after the waiting room is open.  We'll see what happens.

WonderCon as well: it's like CCI has been testing it for almost a year leading up to SDCC sales.  I've learned over the years that it's incredibly easy to get grumpy & nervous about badge buying but in the end we have very little control over the process and it's not quite worth it to freak out.  All we can do is line up our ducks in a row, so to speak, and make sure we're copacetic on our end.

Saving the freaking out until the day of the sales... :P :-X

Oof. $350 total stings the eyeballs. I’m happy to pay it, but I believe my first SDCC was around $155ish total for 4Day+PN.

So the information isn't exactly...clear...


Do you sign into your account on 10/15 and you're *automatically* pushed to the queue? Or will there be a link when you hit your dashboard that'll open up 8a PST?

That Senior price is one of the few advantages of being an old fart.

Ha; I remember when it was literally $40 or $50 for 4-day w/PN, purchased for the next year right after picking up your badge for the current year on PN  :P

So I sent an email to CCI using your wording, and got back the following response.

"Thank you for your email.

All current available for Returning Registration can be found on our website at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. More detailed and step by step instructions will be posted prior to the event. "


It would have been helpful if they put that extra sentence in our announcement email, but there you go.

"Return to this page in the days prior to the badge sale for visual step-by-step instructions on how to properly register and purchase your badge for Comic-Con 2023 if you are randomly selected for a registration session."

Should be fun guide either way.
