Comic-Con 2019 attendee badges are sold out. We thank you for your continued support and we are very grateful to receive such a high level of interest in our event.
The information below pertains to Comic-Con 2019 Open Registration and is provided as a reference for those interested in the badge purchase process. Open Registration took place on November 10, 2018.
Although we encourage you to read all of the information below and bookmark Toucan – the official blog of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim for important Comic-Con 2019 Open Registration announcements, here are the top tips for Open Registration:
- You can purchase badges for up to three people – yourself included – if you are randomly selected for a registration session.
- Each person must have their own Comic-Con Member ID and must be eligible to participate in Open Registration. You may not purchase badges for others using your own Member ID. In order to purchase a badge for another eligible attendee, you will need their last name and Member ID.
- You must enter the waiting room before 9:00 AM PST. You will need your personal registration code to enter the waiting room. Your registration code and waiting room link are available in your Comic-Con Member ID account under the "Registration Info" tab!
- Only use one browser tab or instance when trying to purchase badges. Multiple tabs within the same browser can confuse the waiting room/badge sale process and cause your transaction to fail.
- Add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org as an approved/authorized sender to your email account.
- Only Comic-Con Member ID accounts that were created and confirmed prior to October 31, 2018 at 9:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) are eligible to participate in Comic-Con 2019 Open Registration.

Active-duty military with ID pay the Military/Senior price. The Military/Senior pricing does not extend to military veterans and dependents.

RECOMMENDED BROWSERS/COMPUTER SETTINGS
The Expo Logic waiting room and badge registration system has been tested on the following browsers. We cannot guarantee your results should you use a browser not listed below:
EXPO LOGIC WAITING ROOM
The link to the waiting room has been sent to you via email and is also available in your Member ID account under the "Registration Info" tab.
Do not refresh while you are in the Expo Logic waiting room! The Expo Logic waiting room will automatically refresh every 120 seconds. If the blue circle is spinning, your page is active! Refreshing your browser in the waiting room may cause technical difficulties or remove you from the waiting room.
If you are selected for a registration session, you will need to enter an eligible Comic-Con Member ID and LAST NAME. Do not enter your Member ID and password. If your Member ID is currently being used in another session by another member, it will not validate. If your Member ID has already been used to purchase a badge during Open Registration it will not validate.
PURCHASING FOR OTHERS
On the following page you will be prompted to select the number of people you are purchasing badges for during the sale: 1, 2, or 3. Please make your selection carefully! You will not be able to change the number of people you are planning to purchase badges for after you reach the badge selection page.
BADGE BUYING GROUPS
If you are working in a buying group, make sure that your Member ID is only being used by an authorized participant. If your Member ID is used by someone in your group, and you are unable to use it when selected for a registration session, Comic-Con cannot to assist you after the sale. It is critical that you only work with a well-organized buying group. Once a Member ID is used in a registration session, it is locked for 15 minutes or until the session is closed. Buying groups can be helpful, but we've seen an increasing number of people get shut out due to disorganized efforts. If you receive the error message above, your Member ID has been used by another participant.
When you reach the badge selection page, all available inventory will be shown. Badge inventory will not refresh while you are on this page. If your desired badge type is unavailable, select another type or close your registration session. If you are having trouble validating a Member ID, please review the "Other Important Info" section and make sure that all registrants are eligible to participate in Open Registration.
AVOID THE BACK BUTTON
Before you leave the badge selection page, you will be asked if you want to continue. Make sure you have selected all of your desired badges before you leave this page. It is critical that you do not use your browser’s back button during any step of your registration session! If you need to remove a badge selection, you will be given the option on the final review page. Comic-Con cannot guarantee that your Expo Logic registration session will behave as expected if you use your back button during any step of the registration process.
CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
You will have a chance to review your entire order on Step 4. If you need to remove a badge, do not hit the back button! Select the "remove" option next to the badge you would like to return to inventory. Once a badge has been returned to inventory, you cannot retrieve it.
Please note that all badge purchases are subject to a $7.50 handling fee, per member. This is a one-time fee. For example, if you purchased a badge during Returning Registration, you will not be charged a handling fee if you purchase a badge during Open Registration.

When you are ready to complete your purchase, review the Comic-Con Terms and Conditions and type "agree" where indicated.
