San Diego Comic Con Tickets On Sale February 5, 2011

It’s a new year.

February 5, 2011 – 9 AM Pacific time.


NOTE – YOU CANNOT resell the ticket. It is assigned to your name & the names of others who you are buying for.

You will need to show up with an actual ID in SD … so unless you find another person who’s official ID name MATCHES yours – they will NOT be able to complete registration there and get the actual badge to go inside. (you need the confirmation note plus a driver’s license-passport).

Preview night is SOLD OUT. You could buy the 5-day ticket pass at last year’s Comic Con.

If you’re wondering about individual days …

THURSDAY – Massively packed. If your interest is buying very limited items (500 or fewer), love being able to move about in a hall without your feet touching the ground or you must attend some Hollywood sessions-panels, then consider a Thursday ticket. It is a mad crush of people so you will not cover much ground.

FRIDAY – Actually is kind of a lighter day for being on the floor as most of the serious buyers are gone by the early afternoon so buying lines will actually break up. And lots of Hollywood movie panels & sessions. Some limited items for sale will be sold out by end of Friday.

SATURDAY – Busy and packed again as people who actually work M-F arrive (what’s up with that? 🙂 ). So, long lines for most things – freebies mostly last until end of Saturday. Fewer Hollywood sessions.

SUNDAY – Less packed, more kids. Not as many freebies (mostly given away already) – lines much shorter. Bargain hagglers can start in the afternoon with, “you don’t want to carry that all the way back to Omaha, do you, I’ll give you $25 for it.” Not many panels-sessions with heavyweights.

Prediction – After the 4-day passes sell out – Thursday only tix will sell out first, Saturday – next, then Friday and – Sunday will hold on the longest.

Good luck and hope to see you there.

* Kids 11 and under with paying adult are free. Kids 12-17 pay Junior prices. Seniors 60 years or older pay the Junior/Senior reduced price. Active Military with ID can pay the Junior/Senior price. This deal does not extend to dependents.
