Event Rules and Details

BlizzCon® tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable, and Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to deny admission to anyone who violates the terms of the BlizzCon Ticket Agreement.

Show Hours

Friday, November 3 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Saturday, November 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Due to fire regulations, access to certain panel discussions, presentations, and performances that occur during BlizzCon will be limited to the maximum capacity of the particular hall and will be on a first-come first-served basis. If an area has reached its capacity, you may not be granted re-entry after exiting.

Please note that while attending BlizzCon, you will be entering into areas where you may be filmed, photographed, or recorded by Blizzard and other attendees. The BlizzCon Ticket Agreement requires that you release Blizzard and its affiliates from any and all claims that may arise related to the use of your character, likeness, and/or voice in order to attend BlizzCon.

Attendee Age Restriction

Some content at BlizzCon® may not be suitable for children. Anyone 12 years of age or under must be accompanied by an adult. Absolutely no children 5 years of age or under will be permitted to enter. No strollers will be allowed in the Anaheim Convention Center.

Accessibility

Blizzard is devoted to providing the best possible experience for all our BlizzCon attendees. During the convention, there will be:

  • American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters for the deaf.
    • Available on a limited basis, though we will do our best to accommodate last-minute requests. If you need an ASL interpreter, please reach out to BlizzCon@Blizzard.com.
  • Accessible seating (compliant with ADA standards) at each of the stages.
  • On-site registration services for attendees with accessibility needs.

Note: Due to safety concerns, we can’t guarantee seating in an area once we’ve reached capacity. All experiences are seated on a first-come, first-served basis. The BlizzCon app will have the most up-to-date schedule so you don’t miss a minute of the action!

We’ll make every effort to accommodate accessibility requests to make sure you have an epic experience. For information or questions about special accommodations for people with disabilities, including interpreter services, please email BlizzCon@Blizzard.com, and we will respond within 72 hours. Some limitations will apply.

BlizzCon Code of Conduct

We want everyone at BlizzCon to feel like they're part of one big Blizzard family. To help make that happen, we ask that everyone at the show be respectful and courteous to their fellow attendees.

If you witness or experience any activity that puts someone's safety or enjoyment of the show at risk, inform a security guard or Blizzard employee (BlizzCon staff will be wearing "BlizzCon Crew" shirts at this year's show) and let them know. We have escalation procedures in place to handle these kinds of situations, and we can take the appropriate action from there.

In order to ensure the event provides a safe, enjoyable, and welcoming environment for everyone, Blizzard reserves the right to remove from BlizzCon any person whose conduct is deemed to be disorderly or unbecoming, or who uses vulgar or abusive language.
