I was looking on the CNAnime website and saw the prices for admission, and noticed it was 45CA/34US, but I saw that was for the whole weekend. But I also saw that it said for Friday, Saturday, or whole weekend for that price, so my question is... is that true? For driving up for one day is it going to cost me the same price for the whole weekend??

For the Anime pass...yeah I think they only have the one pass. :( sorries. (but I could be wrong)

For the expo there are no one day anime passes available (at least as far as I've found). What I ususlly do is get one day comic book or sci-fi pass, it limits you slightly, but while $45 isn't bad for 3 days of convention, but it's rather brutal for one day ^_^

That really stinks =_= I don't get why they wouldn't make a one-day pass.

They do.
They're just not full access, naturally.
It's a business, after all. They're trying to sweeten up the deal so you'll want to come all weekend and not just the one day where everything is happening.

$45 is so much. >< At anime north, I preordered so early to get the discount price. Was there a preorder discount price for CNAnime?

Unfortunately I don't think there was a pre-order discount price... You could pre-order tickets but I believe it was the same amount as the tickets at the door. Although it could possibly cost more if you add in shipping charges.

Also, yeah there isn't a 1 day Anime Pass. You can however get another one day pass that lets you get into the dealer's room and such but you wouldn't be able to view the anime and go to all the events :(

Hobbystar seems to only care about the money but I guess that's because they're some big corperation =/ I like fan-run conventions better. But that doesn't stop me from going to TAC and CNAX - XD

Im goin all 3 days, n i wanna see everything - or at least as much as i can squeeze in - so i alredy pre-reg'd my anime delux pass.

However, if you are (like my boyfriend for example) just going to see the people in their costumes, see your friends, take pictures, and have no real interest in going up to the dealers room, or partaking in any of the events, then you CAN just hang out in the lobby for free! :)

Just wondering... is the pass only needed for going into the dealers room etc? Would I need a pass if I just wanna cosplay but not go to the events, dealer's room etc?

You are supposed to still buy a pass. If you are on the grounds the security can kick you out. Even if you don't actually go into anything. But it's been known to happen before....

They're not some big corperation, they're just a buisness plain and simple. And for them its more cost efficient not to offer a one day pass. Despite what many believe, they aren't doing it to spite you... its just buisness. So ease up on the 'EVIL CORP WE MUST RAGE AGAINST BLAH BLAH BLAH' don't rag on them because they're trying to make a buck because you can say the same thing to any retail store you walk into.

Complaining on the other hand how its run... perfectly fine! ;)

And lets not forget folks its an Expo not a con.

That was unbelieveable funny. Rage against them! Bwhahahahha! Good stuff. I don't mind CN but I still don't like a few things. The no one day anime pass being one of them. But whatever. I'll still call it a con. Expo, Con, Festival. All the same to me.

o.O I wasn't raging or foaming at the mouth, I just was wondering why they didn't make a one day pass.

So they have the basic pass that allows enterence to the dealers room? Anyone know figures on how much that costs??
