I'll definitely sign up for the 2012 ComicCon if there's an option to do so at the SDCC 2011 event.

Well, you're a professional wrestler. So, such things as time and money mean little.

They are blocked If you are trying to get a hotel downtown. I booked our room in Chula Vista about a 15min drive from the convention center.

Probably not. It costs 3 times as much to stay close. I'll probably do what I did last time and stay in the Hotel Circle area. From there, you can take the shuttle to the convention center.

The Hotels around the gaslamp district are still blocked, but hotels in the neighboring counties allow you too book super early. To give you an idea of how far away it is here is a map.

Yea it does. I'll be there all five days/4 nights. I'm going to end up paying what it costs to stay one night at the Hilton or the Marriott.

I had an awesome trip. I almost did not come back. I don't think I have ever been as happy and calm as I was that weekend.

We wasted a ton of money by renting a car. We didn't use it once during the entire trip. Next time, we'll take a shuttle or taxi to the Hotel and back to the airport.

The convention shuttle didn't stop by our hotel, but it was a short walk, and the shuttles didn't care if that was your hotel or not, so we got the shuttle there/back a few times.

Did they check for a pass? Our shuttle driver couldn't have cared less and didn't check anyone's pass.

They didn't stop anyone, but I had my pass around my neck so it shouldn't have been a problem (for me) regardless.

I remember like 2 years ago, they stopped a bum from entering the shuttle at one of the stops.
