Glad you had a plan Matt and it worked. Last week I booked regular back ups too, but not for the bargain you found! I think I was worried if Docrichsgirl and docrich would be happy with Holiday Inn so I went with Crown Plaza on Hotel Circle too for 199 a night.

Thank goodness the force was with Joan and she got the Marriott next door! I've never been there before, that's a dream come true!

So you're staying with them at the Marriott then? I'd keep your Crown Plaza reservation for anyone who might need it. Last year, I kept my reservation at Hotel Circle until I found one downtown a week before, and gave my old reservation to other members.

We haven't gotten tickets or a room yet because we just don't have the Cash. Right now it looks like just a small weekend trip for us and staying at Scott's Grandpas up in OC.

Jessica, the day passes for the weekend, Saturday in particular, sell out very fast. So the longer you wait, the higher the chance it will be sold out and you can't attend even if you plan to drive from OC each morning. So as soon as you are liquid enough, I'd at least get the Saturday pass because those sell out first. If need be, you could wait a little longer maybe to get the Sunday pass if you wanted to be there Sunday too.

Yeah, I'll hang onto the Crown Plaza and such for a while but will need to get rid of all my spare hotels in late June or early July to make sure I don't get charged.

Good news, the Travel Planners honored my call in and I actually got a hotel confirmation via e-mail this afternoon for the new Hilton hotel next to the con. But since we already have the Marriott through Joan, I'm transferring the hotel to a friend who was not lucky enough to get a hotel through housing this morning.

One of our members in GGG got his hotel, but forgot about the tickets. Knowing the 4-days were sold out, he went to buy individual day passes and posted this:

Saturday was already sold out when I bought them, but as I was getting all my other tickets Saturday showed up as available - so I grabbed it!!

So, if you're trying to get day passes and it says sold out - keep trying!

For anyone who is flying out of San Jose/south bay, Southwest currently has flights for just $49 each way. Yay! I see flights at that price for SFO or OAK, but not as often for SJC. I've nabbed my flight - I'll be heading out Wed at 10:10am and arriving in San Diego at 11:30. If anyone else is arriving at the same time, maybe we could schedule and share a shuttle ride. I joined a friend on one of them last year and it was a bit cheaper than taxi. (You don't need to have a minimum number to schedule a pickup with the shuttle, but it's more fun to ride together. Smile)

Don't be bummed Scott, as I've been told by friends that Comic-Con is dominated by anime and TV.

Still, I've been told that it is a fun, but a crazy Con. That being said, I think I'd rather save my money for CELEBRATION 5 next year, where the main attraction will be STAR WARS. Mr. Green

I wouldn't say "dominated, but more like "grown and more visible". But when it comes down to it, the majority of the vendors and panels deal with, what else? Comic books!

I still say domination of ANIME and comics (lol). Hey, that's what Comic-Con is all about...with some Star Wars thrown into the mix. Wink

Why go to Comic-Con when I can get the same thing on a smaller scale at WonderCon, which is right in my backyard. Gots to love that. Mr. Green

I've already started a money jar for CELEBRATION 5...or BUST. rock Thumbs up

I go to Comic-Con for the opposite reason - it has what WonderCon has...but on a BIGGER scale! Laughing

Seriously, I think that everyone should go to Comic-Con at least once just to say that you've survived it! Wink
