WonderCon March 31-April 2 2017 Chat
« on: May 01, 2016, 04:55:14 PM »
So... I was looking at hotels for WC and i don't seem to be able to book either the Marriott or the Hyatt on convention way.
Is this normal?

Sort of. Sometimes they hold onto the rooms for a bit. Try checking every day. Eventually they will open up. I'm waiting for the Disney hotels to open for 2017.

You can make reservations at the following hotels now (No discount though):

1. Hyatt Place
2. Doubletree
3. Courtyard Anaheim
4. Sheraton Park Hotel

So when do the discounted con rates go up? Is it through travel planners/CCI? And do the Hilton and Marriott adjacent to the con center sell out quick or do I have a chance?

Normally the con rates are announced much closer to the convention itself, around the time badges go on sale.

Planning to volunteer again at WonderCon, probably for just one day.  Perhaps I'll see some forum members there. ^__^d

Wow, that's a lot of WonderCon information... considering they haven't even had SDCC pre-reg announcements yet!

Still, I'm glad to see the WonderCon info going up!

I'm also glad to see some activity regarding the 2017 shows on CCI's site! And I'm even more excited about it because I'm actually planning on attending WonderCon this year  :D

But an SDCC pre-reg announcement would be nice... ;)

So when the hotels DO go on sale, is it a mad dash to get the Marriott or the Hilton? Or can I just log on when its time and a get a room?

LET'S GET READY FOR WONDERCON 2017!
Setting the Stage: WonderCon 2016 Photo Galleries!
We’re getting ready to launch our coverage of WonderCon Anaheim 2017, to be held March 31—April 2 at the Anaheim Convention Center. And to put us all in the proper mood, let’s look back at the fond memory that is WonderCon 2016.

As you may recall, WonderCon moved to Los Angeles for the 2016 show due to construction at the event’s Southern California home, Anaheim. We’ll be moving back for 2017 and next week we’ll start announcing our confirmed special guests (4 at a time) over the coming weeks, so check back often for more info. Our WonderCon Anaheim Front Page and Toucan will be your OFFICIAL source of info for the 2017 show. Bookmark both pages for the latest information!

But first, let’s look back at WonderCon 2016. Below are some “outtakes” from our set of 3 photo galleries that we’ve also launched today. To see each day’s galleries please click on these links:

WonderCon 2016 Day One (Friday, March 25)

WonderCon 2016 Day Two (Saturday, March 26)

WonderCon 2016 Day Three (Sunday, March 27)

(and coming soon, the WonderCon 2016 Masquerade Photo Gallery!)

There’s over 150 other photos in the galleries listed above … go see them all! And visit us next “WonderCon Wednesday” (Oct. 12) for a look at our first 4 guests for WonderCon Anaheim 2017!

For those who fly in to WonderCon - when do you normally book your flight? I just did a quick search, and it looks like my ideal "return" flight with Southwest is already sold out...sigh  :-[

Check alternate airports. You can fly from LAX or SNA. Also Long Beach, but that's a Jet Blue hub and Southwest doesn't fly there.
