The Oscars are over, so what better time to start planning your trip to this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con? The fandom nation hovered around their collective keyboard at 9 a.m. this morning, when booking through Comic-Con for San Diego hotels started. And, as usual, it apparently ended very soon after it began — the housing page is currently just a sad message, reading “Housing for Comic-Con is closed at this time.” However, hope is not lost: EW spoke to a representative from Comic-Con, who noted that Early Bird booking is still in effect (although none of the downtown hotels are available for booking.)

The housing company is currently sorting through the rush of reservations and will reopen on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, at 9 a.m. PST. So, you know, maybe set a couple of alarms right now, just in case.
