I just booked our flights out there. I might be a tad over-excited.

Sweet, got in on the second round, so my wife and I will be attending our first BlizzCon!

Name(s) of the attendees
Character name
Battle.net account

NO INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS. NO EXCEPTION TO THIS

Why do you need both char name and Bnet account?

Why the international bidder ban? at least from this seller..


That's the information you need to have entered by June 10th in order to claim the ticket at BlizzCon. Not sure why they wouldn't accept international bidders, might be an issue with the photo IDs or something. Are there normally special purchasing rules for international attendees?

Glad you guys and gal(s) got tickets this time round! :D

Sounds like there's quite a few of us going to be there this year, maybe we'll manage a better organised meetup than me and Mew randomly bumping into each other and then stumbling, ever so slightly tipsily, around the Hilton after party looking for Vanifae! :D

I updated my original post to include a list of Maitankadin attendees. So far we've got 12 people from the board (that I know of) that are are going.

Is everyone interested in a proper meetup? And if so, what day would work best? I was thinking the Thursday night before, but I don't know if that's too hectic and when people are arriving, etc.

Thursday would work well for us I think, we'll be collecting tickets in the afternoon when the lines open but other than that we're just hanging out, Sunday is Disney then possibly Knotts farm haunted house (they rocked last year!)

You better hope he doesn't hold you to the same standard!

Re: meet-up, Thursday should be fine for me, I haven't planned flights yet.

It just dawned on me that there's almost a 100% chance that by BlizzCon, I'll be Dr. Theck. Scary.

You already were in our eyes!

Is there anyone familiar enough with the area that can recommend a good place to eat/drink for us all? (And possibly make reservations?)

Garden Walk nearby has many restaurants (Cheesecake Factory, Bubba Gump, PF Chang's, CPK) but IMO they're not the best for large groups of people and somewhat pricey.

For our guild meeting last year we met at a sports bar couple blocks away from the convention center. The atmosphere was pretty good as there were plenty of room and not too loud that we can't hear people talk. They did mess up the food order though.


BTW, for ticket pick ups on Thursday, much better to do it towards the end of the night. The line is horrendous otherwise.

Aergis and I might be going again this year...we didn't make the Q's but I think Ack might have two extras he will sell to us.

It's always nice and fun, especially for us because I grew up and lived 15 minutes away from the convention center, plus we get Disney yearly passes, so we can hit up Disney. It feels like going home every time we go to Cali, though I can only stand it for about a week or two then I remember why I moved away from (smog, expensive, traffic).

Staying close to Anaheim is great though, the beach is only about 20 mins away, you can even take Harbor Ave, which is close to the convention center, west all the way until you hit the ocean, that would take about 40 mins though cuz of traffic lights. If you take the 5 north to the 101 you can get to Hollywood and Beverly Hills and see all the stuff, though I'd skip out on Hollywood its a junk bowl.

Hope everyone has a great time.
