  • Does D23 Expo sell out?

    Does the D23 Expo sell out? Is it necessary to purchase tickets early?

    ---------- Post added 07-24-2011 at 09:07 PM ----------

    Also, can you purchase tickets at the door?

    I doubt that they sell out. I'm pretty sure you can buy tickets at the door. I didn't go last time so I don't know if they had them at the Expo itself but I'm sure you can still get in if you show up the day of.

      They've only had one so far and it did not sell out. Highly unlikely this one will. I think it's an awesome event and had a blast at the last one, but given that it's only in it second year and considering the space they have at the convention center, there's no rush to buy tickets now that the final pricing tier is in effect. I know you could buy tickets at the door last time (that's how I got mine) and my guess is it'll be the same this year, as well.

        I contacted D23 regarding buying tickets at the convention center. Yes you can!

        Response:

        You may purchase a ticket at the convention center

          As for tickets? No, they don't sell out.

            No, they don't sell out.

            You can easily find the box office at the Convention Center. There are a ton of signs and directories showing where everything is. You'll be fine.

              I haven't been to the D23 Expo before, but I've been to other conventions that used the area back in 2004 to 2006, before the convention center was remodeled. Back then it was estimated that 40,000 attendees was maximum capacity. Unfortunately D23 didn't post the expo's attendance numbers from the first year, but I highly doubt they'll hit anything beyond 40,000 attendees. The only way it can "sell out" is if the fire marshal finds the area to be at maximum capacity and close the sale of tickets. As long as the entire San Diego Comic Con crowd doesn't invade the place you'll be fine.

              If you want to purchase tickets at the door just be prepared to wait. Friday morning will probably be busy with pre-registered attendees picking up their badges/credentials/ticket pouches/expo guide/etc. Just keep an eye out on the schedule over the next couple of weeks and plan according to what you want to attend/do.

                Anyone know if they'll have an early pick-up. I have my tickets... some conventions I've gone to in the past had a pickup for your badge-holder, etc the night before at some kind of will-call like area.
                Makes it nice if you are arriving the day before, then you can get all your registration done and just show up to the first event, rather than wait and hope you aren't stuck and miss something in the morning.

                  According to the slip of paper that came with my tickets, it says:

                  Bring this entire envelope to the Expo to gain admission to the event and to avoid long lines at registration. You will be able to pic up your plastic badge holders onsite at kiosks that will be set up within the registration area.
                  It sounds like you can only pick up your badge holders the day of. But since we already have our tickets, it sounds like we simply have to pick up our badge holders from a kiosk and walk into the convention.

                  Hope that helped.

                    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that pick-up for non-Sorcerer/Premiere tickets may be at 8 AM on Friday morning (hopefully this won't be a logistics nightmare). My mom and I are Premiere ticket holders and we and Sorcerer ticket holders have early pick-up on Thursday (only 300 people). Though the packet we received listed a D23 Member only presentation/panel at 9:30 AM at Stage 23 and Stage 28... a date wasn't listed, but I'm assuming it will be on the first day (or heck, it could be all three days, but the current schedule conflicts with this idea). Hopefully however Con Ops is set up pre-registered attendees will be in and out of the registration hall and won't have to miss any panels/presentations.

                    Currently here are the only hours that are posted on the expo's site:

                        Must need more people to attend. They are advertising it on the tv now.

                          That''s why my Mom and I are going to the members only hour to get everything we need. I'm going to try and go to sleep early and wake up early so we can catch a bus or walk over (were only half a mile away from ACC).

                            How early do people line up to get into the Expo? I also already have my tickets already but don't want to miss the opportunity to line up for some of the big presentations like the Studios and Marvel.

                              I saw somewhere that they're expecting some people to start lining up on Friday around 5:00 AM. From what I saw, the early birds got the attention from the TV cameras there to cover the event. So if you're a star-wannabe or a huge showoff, that's probably the time you want to show up.

                              Once the show floor doors open, you'll see the crowd disperse, ala Disneyland's rope drop. Some will head to the store immediately, some will beeline it for the Arena line. I'd recommend deciding ahead of time how much time & effort you're willing to put into waiting for the morning event you're dying to see, and then plan your day around it.


                              I personally won't be there that early, but I'll make it by opening.
