Child Badges

Comic-Con is proud to offer one of the most generous complimentary child badge policies in the comic convention industry! Children ages 12 and under may attend WonderCon for free with a paying adult. Children do not need to register for a Comic-Con Member ID. You may register your child when you arrive on-site. Children must be present to be registered for a badge and adults will be required to provide emergency contact information for any child registrant. Please do not create a Member ID for children ages 12 and under.

Purchasing For Others

There is no limit to how many badges you can purchase for friends and family! 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, that must be included as well.

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.


General Information on Purchasing Badges

Please take a moment to read the important information below. You’ll find details on how to register, international purchases, data protection, and more!

The first step in the badge sale process is to create your Comic-Con Member ID account! A valid and confirmed Member ID is required to participate in badge sales for WonderCon and Comic-Con.

If you do not have a Member ID account, please follow the steps below. Member ID registration is free of charge and only takes a few minutes! Only one Member ID is required per person. Please do not attempt to create multiple Member ID accounts.

  1. Click here to create your Member ID. Access the Member ID Portal at any time by clicking the Member ID link in the upper right-hand corner of this website.

  2. Choose a Member ID that you can remember! You need your Member ID to participate in badge sales. 

  3. Provide a long-term email address to receive important registration information.

  4. Complete the rest of your account information accurately.* 

  5. Click ‘Next’.

  6. Verify your email. Enter the verification code that was sent to your registered email address, and click ‘Verify’.

  7. Identify the correct Member ID Registration type** and click ‘Select’.

  8. On the same page, your Member ID Registration type selection and basic account details will appear below. Click ‘Add to Cart’. Do not select ‘+ New Registrant’. If too much time has passed, you will be prompted to log in. Log in with the Member ID and password you just created to complete your account creation.

  9. A pop-up window will appear to confirm that your Member ID Registration type has been added to your cart. Click ‘Checkout’. If you click ‘Continue Shopping’ by mistake, you can click ‘Checkout’ under your Cart on the right side of the page.

Please follow all the steps above to complete your account creation. You will not be eligible to participate in any badge sale until your Member ID account is complete. Member ID registration does not reserve or guarantee you a badge. Duplicate Member ID registrations will be automatically canceled. If badges were already purchased by the member, they will be automatically canceled, less a 10% processing fee and the $10 handling fee, at WonderCon's sole discretion. 

*Purchasing For Others

**Member ID Registration Type

Member ID Registration types include: Junior (age 13-17), Adult, Active Duty Military, and Senior (60+). Your account is not complete until your Member ID Registration type is selected. An attendee badge cannot be purchased for a Member ID unless a Member ID Registration type has been selected. 

Please log in to your Member ID account well in advance of any badge sale to make sure your information is current. If you registered for a Member ID previously, your Member ID is still active and you do not need to register for another Member ID.

If you have not logged in to the new Member ID Portal for a previous event, you will be prompted to reset your password. Please follow the instructions sent to you via email to reset your password, and SHAZAM you’re done! Your account is active and you will be eligible to participate in badge registration or badge sales.

From your Account Settings, select ‘My Addresses’ to update or provide a shipping address. Make sure ‘Primary Shipping Address’ is checked on the address where you want your badges mailed. If you no longer have access to the email account that you originally used to register, please contact Comic-Con directly to update your email address. If you have any concerns, please contact Comic-Con well in advance of the badge sale.

Everyone (excluding children) that wants to attend WonderCon must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID account. To prevent scalping, badges for WonderCon are non-transferable. Each badge features a unique barcode registered to the badge holder. 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.

If you plan to buy badges for other people, they each need to have their own confirmed Member ID account. You will need their last name and Member ID in order to purchase badges on their behalf. Resale of badges is strictly prohibited and will result in the cancellation of your entire badge order.

As part of WonderCon’s commitment to eradicate badge scalping, WonderCon permits the purchase of a maximum of one badge type per person. Any duplicate orders will be automatically canceled. In the instance of a duplicate order being canceled, the purchaser will be refunded less the 10% processing fee and the $10 handling fee, at WonderCon's sole discretion.

WonderCon accepts Visa, American Express, and MasterCard only. We cannot accept PayPal or any other online payment systems.

Do not buy badges from street traders or unauthorized ticket agencies. Badges are security printed and are personal to the badge holder only. Any attempt to transfer or resell badges will lead to automatic refusal at the entrance. Beware of forgeries.

All badge purchases are subject to a $10 handling fee per member.

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’.

If your primary address is where you want badges mailed, click ‘Edit’, check the box next to ‘Primary Shipping Address’, and click ‘Save’.

If your primary address is correct but you want your badges to be mailed elsewhere, click ‘+Add Address’. Enter your shipping address information, check the box next to ‘Primary Shipping Address’, and click ‘Save’.

Please Note: We cannot ship to international or international APO/FPO/DPO addresses.

Every badge holder will be required to present a valid photo ID when they arrive. Security checks may be made at other locations within the Anaheim Convention Center. If you are not the person whose name is printed on the badge you will be denied entry and your badge may be revoked. Please make sure that the name on your badge matches your photo ID.

Data collected during registration is retained by WonderCon to enable you to purchase badges for future Comic-Con and WonderCon events. Retained information will also be used to inform you of registration information related to your badge purchase and events run by Comic-Con.
