A Word On Minecon 2012

Excited about attending Minecon 2012 this year? Why wouldn't you be, it's going to be awesome! There will be a whole host of special guests, booths, and for anyone who attended the 'con last year, less lines. Still, there are a few things Mojang wants to make sure any attendee is aware of! From Mojang's own Lydia Winters:

Register your Babies (literally)

Children under seven are free, but we need to get a head-count of how many will be attending. If you are bringing small children with you, please login to manage your ticket, then scroll down and add in the number of children under seven attending with you.


MINECON will be open each day from 10-17 (10am-5pm). On Saturday night, the Walt Disney Studios party will start at 8. The Sunday night .party() details haven’t been released yet (don’t forget it is 18+ ONLY).


Some things that will make this year’s MINECON incredible:

  • All of you
  • Amazing panels about everything Minecraft you can imagine
  • A killer exhibit hall with hand picked exhibitors
  • An interactive area… nope… I’m not telling you ANYTHING else about this one
  • A private party at Walt Disney Studios. Ride ALL the rides with fellow Minecrafters – Too much awesome to describe
