How do I purchase a WonderCon badge?
Everyone who intends to purchase, apply, or register for a WonderCon badge must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. Click here to learn more about creating your Member ID.
If you already have a Comic-Con Member ID, simply log in to your account and select “Buy WonderCon Badges” from the top menu bar once badges are on sale. Visit our Attendee Badge Sale page for detailed instructions:
Can I purchase a badge for my friend?
Yes! There is no limit to how many badges you can purchase for friends and family! Anyone you wish to purchase a badge for must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID.
To purchase a badge for others, you need the Member ID and last name of each person exactly as it appears on their Member ID account. If the last name includes special characters or a suffix, they must be included. If the suffix includes punctuation (such as commas, periods, and special characters), that must be included as well. Visit our Attendee Badge Sale page for detailed instructions.
Each attendee is required to pick up their own badge. If you purchase a badge for a friend, you cannot pick up their badge for them.
For information on child badges, please see our Child Badge Policy.
Can I bring my children?
Of course! Children (ages 12 and under) are free with a paying adult and can be registered on-site in the Registration Area. Children do not need to register for a Member ID to receive a badge.
To accommodate the transition from child (age 12 and under) to junior (age 13 – 17), we set a static date each year to determine who is considered a child for WonderCon. See our Child Badge Policy for more information.
Can I transfer my WonderCon badge?
Reselling, sharing, or transferring a WonderCon badge or complimentary pass is strictly prohibited. Badges are non-transferable. For information regarding refunds, please review our Cancellation/Refund Policy.
Will my badge be shipped to me?
WonderCon badges are shipped to most attendees, professionals, and press who purchase or register for a badge by the February 20, 2024, shipping deadline.
Please keep the shipping address on your Member ID account current! To add or update your shipping address, log in to your Member ID account and click “My Addresses”.

Please see our Terms & Conditions for more information.
Refunds, Lost Badges, and The Fine Print
Non-Transferable: Each WonderCon badge features a unique barcode registered to the badge holder. To prevent scalping, badges for WonderCon are non-transferable. WonderCon permits the purchase of a maximum of one badge type per person.
ID Requirement: Every badge holder will be required to present a valid photo ID when they arrive. Security checks will be performed to ensure that only the person listed on the badge is admitted to the event using that badge. The name on your badge must match your photo ID.
Refunds and Cancellations: The WonderCon 2024 badge refund deadline is February 20, 2024. To request a refund for your WonderCon 2024 badge purchase, please click here. All refunds are subject to a 10% processing fee. WonderCon badges are non-transferable and may not be exchanged. Any duplicate orders will be automatically canceled, less the 10% processing fee and the handling fee, at SDCC’s sole discretion.
Refunds on Early Bird Purchases: We do not issue partial refunds for 3-Day badges purchased during our early bird period. If you no longer want to attend all three days, you must refund your entire 3-Day badge purchase, less the 10% processing fee. Then, once your 3-Day badge is refunded, you can purchase the single-day badge options at our standard rate while inventory is available.
Lost Badges: Please keep your badge safe and secure at all times. Lost badges may be replaced for a nominal fee at the Badge Solutions Desk in the Registration Area on-site.
Limited Capacity: All event and program rooms have a limited capacity as set by the fire marshal. Although your WonderCon badge is required to get into all events, it does not guarantee you access to any event if it has reached its capacity. We do not clear rooms between events. Most autograph signings are of a limited nature. Your WonderCon badge does not guarantee autographs at any event.
Data Protection: Data collected during registration is retained by SDCC to enable you to purchase badges for future SDCC events. Retained information will also be used to inform you of registration information related to your badge purchase and events run by SDCC. Check the “Email Communication” section of our Comic-Con Member ID page to learn how to customize your opt-in preferences.
