Wondercon 2019: March 29-31 Anaheim

I know 2018 hasn't happened yet, but I know when they put out the quick guide, they announce the dates. Posting so that I can create calendar links. :)

Forum Housekeeping:

I'll lock this thread in the meantime (at least until WonderCon 2018 is over ;p).

Since Wondercon 2018 is long past and 2019 is fast approaching, I've unlocked this thread. :)

I'll start! 2019 will be my first Wondercon and I'm so excited!!

Would be cool if Galaxy Edge would be open up during this time...I’m guessing middle of the year for that but you never know.

Probably not until after SDCC open registration. Maybe early December?

I'm pretty sure I'm going back to WonderCon this year for the first time in several years (I went the first 2 or 3 year it was in Anaheim but it hasn't worked out in my schedule since then)!  Always a fun Con

What's the crowd like. Interesting in going to support a family member trying to get an artist table. I am just trying to figure out the logistics of transporting art to the event. Some drive, some fly. I went to aneheim a month ago the traffic was bad getting through LA.

I'm probably going to this for the first time in Anaheim, though I did go the year that it was in LA.

I will be returning with (hopefully) my daughter in tow. Need to get her back to Con life.

I haven't been in a few years, so maybe someone who's been more recent can correct me if I'm wrong:

essentially the crowds felt to me like Comic-Con in the early 2000's - crowded but not overwhelming.  Waiting for panels or autographs but in a much more manageable way.  For example, it was MUCH easier for me to meet Jim Lee, Stan Lee (no relation), and other comic icons at WonderCon than Comic-Con.  I had been going to Comic-Con for over a decade before I finally got to get some stuff signed by Stan the Man and Jim Lee (same year, different day). 
I suspect the crowds have grown a bit since I last went, and it looks like at least one or two of the days sell out now in advance (I don't remember that being the case necessarily when I last went), but from my recollection the crowds at WonderCon, as well as the programming, really felt like what going to Comic-Con for the first times in 2000-2004ish were like.  The traffic might've been extra bad if you went over Easter weekend, as WonderCon has been held on occasion.  One year it was Easter weekend and driving to/from Anaheim from San Diego really sucked, especially on Sunday

Crowds aren't bad at all. Sometimes the smaller rooms fill up (as they do at many cons) but I've never been shut out of the Arena for the biggest panels.

Autographs are now handled through a lottery system (just as with SDCC).

Do you think it's easier to get in. I've been trying to get tickets to SDCC for years, no success.
