    forgive the stupid… still a bit asleep here. We have 4 days no preview… have our badges already. Some of us our coming in at the sd airport. can we pick up our bags, convention information book and lanyard… 3 pm -8:30 pm? Since we do not have preview I normally would say no, The badge pickup guide makes it look like a yes. Always nice to have the stuff for SDCC from the sails even though we can’t go in the con or dealers floor. So much easier to mark up the books in hard copy than download any of the sdcc guides.

  • Yes, you can — and likely earlier than 3PM. That’s the posted time, but it has always started a few hours early.

    I have a question. The Quick Guide says they start giving away the tickets for ticketed events like the ones at the Horton Theatre at 9:am. But the place doesn’t even open up until 9:30 am. What gives?

  • Diane S

    Thanks, half way there. Also meant to ask if we can get our disabled sticker for our badge one Wednesday as well? I know its near entrance A. I use a cane and my sister a knee walker.

    I just noticed that Hall H for Thursday only lists the Kingsman for 11-Noon, and no longer lists 20th Century Fox, searching Hall H on the Con’s site
    . Did anyone hear anything? Perhaps no Deadpool 2 after all. This the greatest resource for Comic-Con, keep up the great work!

    This will be my dad’s and my first SDCC and our only priority is Hall H on saturday. How early do we need to queue up in the NDL to essentially guarantee a wristband?
