San Diego Comic-Con International Pre-Registration Will Take Place Saturday

It's already time to start thinking about Comic-Con 2016.


San Diego Comic-Con fans, get ready. It's already time to start thinking about Comic-Con 2016. 

Pre-registration for next year's event will begin shortly after 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Saturday, Nov. 14.

Pre-registration is available for all paid 2015 attendees who validated their badge number prior to Sept. 15, 2015. You can see if you are eligible to participate by logging into your member account and clicking on the 'Registration Info' tab.  

Here's how the process will work: At least 24 hours prior to the 9 a.m. start time, Comic-Con fans with member ID accounts will receive an email containing a link to the EPIC Registration waiting room, which opens at 8 a.m. PST.

Once the room is open, fans with registration codes will be able to authorize them. You can also find your personal registration code on your Comic-Con member ID account under the 'Registration Info' tab. 

Fans must enter the registration room before 9 a.m. PST. Once they're in the virtual room, pre-registration will begin around 9 a.m. 

You will be able to buy badges for up to three people, including yourself, but you must have their full name and member ID on hand to do so. The people must be eligible to participate as well. 

Members will have 15 minutes to complete their purchase. Here's how much different badges will cost:

Badge TypeAdultJunior (12 & Under Free with Adult)U.S. Military/Senior
Preview Night$40$20$20

There are more people than badges available, so not everyone will be able to purchase a badge pre-registration.
