So....

This covers why Saturday was bad for me.

So here's the dilly. Partner in crime and her husband were going to do Cali stuff such as Disneyland and San Diego Zoo. I was going to fly in on Wednesday night and we would do Comic Con Thursday-Sunday and then fly home Sunday night.

I didn't have the chance to get into the system to buy any tickets except for Sunday only. And that only took 4-3/4 hours. So that would have been just a waste. However that is not even an option now as all of the badges are sold out. I was told by the CCI site that as refunds are issued, tickets could become available. So right now I have to wait for a maybe.

As Partner in Crime said, there's always another year. But it took me 5 years to find someone who was willing to go with me. How long will the next time take.

I take it you weren't able to get tickets? Or were you one of the lucky ones?

Sounds like they did a major f*ck up. If you didn't get tickets, how is this going to affect your plans for July? (it is July you're going out there, right?) More time to be spent at Disneyland? :-D

No I did not get tickets, so I am not taking any vacation at this point. When I actually got into the system, there were only Sundays tickets left. So I did not buy as it would be the last day of tha vaca.
Jim and I went to Disneyland last year so there's no reason for me to go back.
It was a bad day all around.
Sfandra and Alexei have their tickets so they will be going.

Consider volunteering. It's a four hour shift and then the rest of the day is yours. You have to register for that too. But if I were to go again, that would be the route I'd take.

That is a thought. I will have to see what happens when they place the offer for volunteers.

Just checked into the volunteering route. They have all the volunteers they need so the website says to check for 2012.
