I am not sure if I should be happy about the move or not. It was so close to get up to WonderCon from my house. Just a 45 minute train trip and a few stops on BART, and I was there. I could go for a day and be happy until the next year, looking at all of my goodies on the way home.
Now, since the Moscone Center is undergoing renovations, it would not have been available for Comic Con International to hold WonderCon in San Francisco. Go down to San Jose, Santa Clara, or even back to Oakland. Nope, we are going down to Anaheim. Not far from the world famous Comic Con stomping grounds of San Diego. It was really nice to have WonderCon close to home.
I guess the silver lining is that since it is across from Disneyland, I will more than likely be able to go down there this year. My wife loves Disneyland with a passion, and we have some friends who are both fans of Disney and the Cons. So I guess we get a year of a win-win. The Anaheim Convention Center is a great place too, since it is one of the largest in the world. Guess there would not be a better place to hold a Con.
Guess only time will tell if we will get our Con back, or if I will have to make the yearly trek down to LA.
