#06: Your WonderCon Anaheim 2017 RFID Badge!
To help prevent scalping and counterfeit badges, WonderCon Anaheim 2017 badges will once again be enabled with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags! At various access points in and around the Anaheim Convention Center, you will encounter gates with a large “SCAN HERE” indicator. All you need to do is tap your badge briefly to the indicator. When you do, you’ll get a green light that indicated that you’ve been validated and are okay to enter. When you leave, you must also tap your badge out so you may re-enter when you return.
It is extremely important you remember to tap your badge when you leave, or you could be denied re-entry and sent to the customer service desk in a different location of the Convention Center. If you are sent to customer service to resolve a badging issue, you will need a photo ID to validate that you are the badge holder of record.
WonderCon Anaheim badges will be mailed in advance to all attendees who purchased a badge prior to February 27, 2017. Badges will be mailed to the address on file in your Comic-Con Member ID account. We are unable to ship badges to an international address. If you are an international attendee or if you purchased your badge after February 27, 2017, here are the badge pick-up hours:
- Thursday, March 30: 12:00–7:00 PM
- Friday, March 31: 10:30 AM–7:00 PM
- Saturday, April 1: 8:30 AM–7:00 PM
- Sunday, April 2: 8:30 AM–5:00 PM
Badge pick-up will take place in the Attendee Registration Area in Hall D of the Anaheim Convention Center. If you received your badge in the mail, please come to Hall D to pick up your lanyard, WonderCon Anaheim 2017 Program Book, and bag.
Badges are available online only and will not be sold onsite at the Anaheim Convention Center.
