Guide to Parking at San Diego Comic-Con 2018

Parking is the last major pre-convention hurdle for attendees leading up to San Diego Comic-Con. Whether you’re a local resident or not staying at a downtown hotel, where you park is very important.

Ace Parking (who owns most of the parking in Downtown San Diego) moved to a lottery based system three years ago, and while exact details about their sale for 2018 are yet to be announced, they will indeed be selling pre-paid parking spaces again.

However, for those who don’t want to wait — ABM Parking is currently selling pre-paid parking for several lots, available Wednesday through Sunday (though not all lots are available each day). Prices range from $10-$30 on Sunday, and the closest parking appears to be at Horton Plaza. However, if you don’t mind a short walk in exchange for getting your parking now, it’s certainly worth investigating. Also, a pro tip: After you click on the day you want, if you click to zoom out on the map, other options appear.
