Tickets for WonderCon Anaheim are on sale now! They are very easy to get, unlike Comic Con, so check it out! Saturday is only $25.
WonderCon is a Sci-Fi and Fantasy Convention, and our San Diego Comic Con's little sister. It has similar programming, without the unrelated Hollywood stuff (no "New Girl" panels, sorry), and without the hassle of insane lines (less people attend). There are still plenty of celebrities though, for those as starstruck as me.
I have purchased a Saturday ticket, and am planning to do a day trip. We could enjoy the exhibit hall, go to a few panels, have a leisurely lunch, and maybe even hit an offsite event.
If you are interested in ride sharing, let me know. I am in Solana Beach, and have a 5-seater. We could save on gas.
