As expected, no matter what the cost is, that package always sells out. Anyway, for the 11am PT general sale, it should be easy to do. Basically,  it is what ReedPop uses.

I was able to help some friends secure their Sorcerers badges. Not buying for myself, but or the first time ever i got in immediately to the buy page when buying any tickets... funny how that works.

Checkout Queue

Quote
Welcome to the D23 Expo 2019 Virtual Queue. You are now in line for the chance to purchase tickets while supplies last.

Your page will automatically refresh should you have the opportunity to start the ticketing checkout process. DO NOT REFRESH THIS PAGE!

PLEASE NOTE: Should you move into the ticketing checkout process, you will have EIGHT MINUTES to fully complete your transaction.
How does this queue thing work?

We use the queue to make sure that tickets are sold in an orderly and fair way. Customers enter the queue in the order in which they arrive after the on sale begins. When you are placed in the queue, a unique cookie identifies you and allows us to hold your place in line.

As long as your browser is open, you will not lose your place and you will be automatically taken to the checkout process when it is your turn, without needing to refresh.
What if I get an error page?

Getting an error page will not result in you losing your place in the queue or tickets in your cart.

The queue is made of many, many servers. In the unlikely event that you get an error page, it is possible that you landed on a misbehaving server or group of servers. This is why we painstakingly monitor for misbehaving servers and take them out on the fly.

If you encounter an error, just refresh once or twice. There is a good chance you'll be returned onto a behaving server. If the error persists, please do not continue to refresh repeatedly — you'll risk getting throttled or blocked.
What happens if I refresh?

The queue page will automatically take you into the checkout when it is your turn, so you should not need to refresh. Refreshing does not improve your odds of getting through the queue.

If you do refresh, you will keep your place in line. That said, our load balancers will automatically throttle and even block users that it deems malicious, so don't go overboard spamming your Refresh button.
What are the technical requirements for the queue?

To properly maintain your place in the queue, your browser must support cookies and javascript.

All current major browsers support these features by default, so unless you explicitly turned the features off, you'll be fine. The queue page will let you know in advance if we detect that your browser is incompatible.
PLEASE NOTE: You do NOT need to refresh this page. It will update automatically as you are admitted to the checkout. Activity that is deemed malicious or excessive could result in you being banned from our servers.

[member=3681]comicconfamily[/member] let me know what information you had to enter for your family members. I have not heard back from my friend about buying his ticket yet.

I'm going to wait until I have all the info I need, before buying the three tickets :D

Got my tickets. They changed it up and no other names were needed, just the buyer.

I do not know (right now) nor do I see anything about this on their website. I'm guessing the badges won't have any names on them like what ReedPop does, or just the buyer's will be on there?

Does the ticket you need, an adult ticket?

Wow $2500 a piece and still sold out... That's like week vacation to Hawaii with a 50 min massage on the beach. But I guess scalpers make it back via selling the exclusive.

Glad Comic Con doesn't do this.

For new Sorcerer's I liked the info at this blog You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login from last Expo.  He cites there were 350 Sorcerers in 2017.

btw Were the Anaheim Hilton and Marriott on the D23 Hotel list?

They weren't on there, but I think we're still outside the booking range for those two hotels.  Maybe they'll be added later?

Having had Sorcerer last time, it's definitely a mixed bag of scalpers and genuine fans who don't care what they have to spend because it's Disney. They're super into collecting so money's no object. It was really cool to have the VIP status, but yeah, it's painfully expensive and the dolls (which are what will make back most of your $) that year were meh. I wish they'd cap it in the $2000s because it'll just keep getting more unaffordable for average attendees especially since parents will get sorcerer passes for their kids too so that they can use them to buy exclusives.
