    I just heard that the 4-day passes are 96% sold already, so if you haven't got them yet, do it NOW!

    As of last Friday, 4-day passes are SOLD OUT! There are still individual day passes, with a limited number of Saturday passes left. The problem with that is that you'd have to get to the con early every day (instead of just one time) to register!

    Here are mine and Dale's itinerary (so far):


    Hotel:

    Best Western Seven Seas
    411 Hotel Circle South
    619-291-1300

    Check In: 7/22
    Check Out: 7/26

    (We will be staying with a friend the night of the 26th)


    Airfare:

    7/22: Southwest # 198, Departs SFO 8:20 am
    7/27: Southwest # 2906, Departs SAN 11:30 am

    (Both were only $49 each way - I'd get the flight to SD first before they're gone. There were still plenty of departure times left. I was going to leave on the 26th, but there weren't any for the $49 price...yet).

    does anyone know of anyone that has 2 4-day sdcc passes that want to sell them? my friend and his sister want to go to comic con but they didn't pre order their 4 day passes. now that they are sold out they are SOL. i thought id check the fan force to see if anyone bought some that aren't going anymore.

    Hi Matt! Do you know by any chance who celebrities are going to this Comic Con? I wonder if the cast of Twilight will go like last year. I'm really want to confirm that so I can make my plans. I know there is going to be a TwiCon in Dallas from July 26th to August 2nd in Texas. So I'm kinda torn between them Ahhh! help please.

    Mirtha,

    I think its still way too early who'll be there. You'd have to keep checking the website (in the first post). The final schedule isn't online until about two weeks before the con, and even then celebrities cancel at the last-minute or people get added. And with the 4-day passes now sold out, I'd buy individual day passes and get a refund a month or two before the deadline for them.

    The problem you'll have (like others who were not sure about going) is that you'll have to stand in line to register and get a different badge every day, instead of doing it just one time on Wednesday, when the people with the 4-day passes do that. If you don't buy your day passes soon, they might run out of Saturday passes. So for example, you might have a pass for each day, but NOT for Saturday, which is the BIGGEST day, and you'll be kicking yourself, while you stand outside the convention, not being able to get in, even though you'll have passes for the other days.

    Mirtha,
    Angelica and I were at the twilight panel last year and if its contact with the cast you want, I would say go to texas, unless you want the comic-con experience. Aside from getting a sneak peak at the movie we didn't really get a whole lot of information. Poor Rob Pattinson was so nervous he could barely get two words out. We were late getting into line and were lucky to make it into the hall at all so we were way in the back. The signing they did was by lottery so there is no guarntee of getting autographs. Poor angelica was sad. Also, we don't know they will go to San Diego this year. They are supposed to start filming eclipse this summer. I personally am not going to Comic-Con this year. I am staying home for my Harry Potter con instead. There will be another Twilight con in SF next Feb. If you want to come for a visit, you will always have a place to stay.

    Woow! I forgot about that. They will probably getting ready to shoot Eclipse. Humm. Is there going to be another TwiCon next year in SF... So maybe I should wait until that. Ahhh.. sad. Really I want to see the cast & have the oportunity of a signature. If it's not Robert I want to meet the actors who played Emmett & Carlisle hehehe. Abuu :( So I might visit SF next year instead. Unless I'm able to steal a bank here in Peru so I can travel this year & next yeat too hehe.

    There is going to be one in SF next year. It is Feb 12-14. We already know Jackson Rathbone (aka Jasper Hale) will be there with his band. I'm sure a lot of the others will show up as well. I can let you know when the tix go on sale. Right now its just the premium package which is around $300.

    For anyone who is flying out of San Jose/south bay, Southwest currently has flights for just $49 each way. Yay! I see flights at that price for SFO or OAK, but not as often for SJC. I've nabbed my flight - I'll be heading out Wed at 10:10am and arriving in San Diego at 11:30. If anyone else is arriving at the same time, maybe we could schedule and share a shuttle ride. I joined a friend of mine on one of them last year and it was a bit cheaper than taxi.
