MineCon 2012 coming to Disneyland Paris

Mojang's second all-things-Minecraft convention descending on Disney theme park in France November 24-25; registration opens soon.

MineCon 2012 is trading in Sin City for Disneyland in Europe. Mojang announced today that MineCon 2012 will be held at Disneyland Paris November 24-25. Registration for the event is set to open soon.

Minecraft + Disneyland = MineCon 2012.

No other details are available on the event. MineCon 2011 was held last November at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tickets for that show went on sale at $99, scaling to $140 for those who waited a while to purchase.

If MineCon 2012 follows the recipe set from last year's inaugural event, attendees can expect keynote speeches, build contests, breakout classes concerning various Minecraft topics, and costume contests.

Mojang is currently at work on multiple projects, including Scrolls and space game Ox10c. No mention was made concerning whether these titles will be on-hand at MineCon 2012.

I still don't understand why anyone would bother going to a minecraft convention. How much can you really get out of it? Some information of what could potentially come in the next content patch? A little sneak peak at what is to come?

Minecraft... I kinda miss playing it, but i HAD to leave it because it was killing my life, i can remember playing for hour and hours without making my work, without seeing my Gf and friends and sometimes even without taking a shower the saturdays... It was way too much. I had to kill minecraft from my life.I want to play it again, but i know that the adiction is way too strong.

I wouldn't waste my time. I've only played Micecraft for about 30mins and started to get bored with it.

Legoland would've been a better choice

I bet it's still expensive for me to go, even though it's less of a distance to travel. Oh well...

 @Tazzman1000  Yeah, Lego is in the process of making a Minecraft themed Lego set so it would have fit perfectly lol

 @plaintomato That is a bit like saying "don't look down" when somebody is walking on a rope bridge high above the ground.
