Sometime in the past year, the Anaheim Convention Center tore out a street between two hotels and turned it into a pedestrian plaza with fountains and lights. It turned out to be a great gathering place for con-goers who wanted to take a break, socialize, hold photoshoots, etc.
I’ve written up my experience of the weekend over at K-Squared Ramblings, and you can see more photos on Flickr including exhibits, people in costumes, and sightseeing.
Night at the new pedestrian area at the Anaheim Convention Center, taken during WonderCon this past weekend. This walkway replaces a street that used to run between two hotels, and is anchored by fountains at either end. It turned out to be a perfect place for con-goers to gather socially during the day, and for cosplayers to hold photoshoots.

A view of the Anaheim Convention Center during last year’s WonderCon, a flip side to this daytime view. Normally the convention is held in San Francisco, but remodeling at the Moscone Center last year and scheduling problems this year led them to move to Anaheim. You can read about my experience at the con last year.
This year’s convention is coming up this weekend, and tickets are still available as I write this. I’ll be posting photos and commentary at K-Squared Ramblings as usual.

It’s the Anaheim Convention Center again, taken during Anaheim Comic-Con 2010.
The walkway between the Hilton Anaheim and the Anaheim Convention Center. The blocky wall to the right is a large area full of staircases at one end of the convention center.
Taken this past April, during Anaheim Comic Con. The convention center was also host to a much larger coffee convention.
