    I have two of them; both in the headquarter hotels.

    And I am offering one of the room to the hypesters here.

    My posse (all of two people) and I are booked at the T&C, for now. Sadly even putting in a list of 12 right -at- 9:00 did nothing for our chances. We got one that wasn't even on our list... gooo figure.

    Not the happiest with it, but it's cheap and grants us enough money for taxi's on the late nights.

    We're getting in Weds afternoon, and leaving Sunday afternoon. Sooo if anyone is up for dinner before/after preview night (not sure on the times for that yet) let me know.

    I'm in for dinner anytime. What other chance do we all have to hang out. :)

    The T&C is where I was picking up the bus at the mall. An all day pass was only 5 bucks, so that'll save you cab/parking in the morning. And since Keyser's still in the same place (essentially) you'll be able to meet up with him at that same spot.

    I'm getting in tuesday night and leaving monday morning.

    ....do not talk to me. I am still bitter at being out in the middle of the ghetto on my own. :csad::csad::csad:

    I am flying in Wed and leaving Sunday. I believe my hotel is the BW Hacienda or something of that nature.

    My recommendation would be dinner AFTER Preview Night.

    Last year, MadRhapsody and I were queueing in the Convention Centre from the early afternoon. A massive wait to get your 4-day pass and eventually get into the main hall for Preview Night. I'm still hoping against hope that The Walking Dead pilot will be ready to screen at Preview Night this year, so I'm wanting to go.

    So my recommendation for the folks arriving Wednesday would be to head straight for the Convention Centre. Depending what time in the afternoon you guys are arriving, I could meet you and walk down to the place with you, and we can queue together. Then all go for dinner afterwards. :)

    Far as I know, my friend who chose the hotels for my group has yet to get any notification as to what we ended up getting. :/

    What do you mean what days? Confused.

    2 of my friends are VIP or something because they are artists for the Con or something and the other I think he had to buy each day pass individually or something. I have 4-day pass w/o Preview Night.

    We are arriving Wednesday late morning/early afternoon and leaving Sunday evening.

    Maybe he is asking regarding hotel nights as he may have one available.

    Looks like the Comic-Con iPhone app has been updated again. Now it actually takes you to the Con webpages inside the app.

    Hopefully they'll include some kind of method to setup schedules. For Wondercon they have a section showing each session per day, which is nice. But it would be nice to carry around a schedule (with alternatives) on my phone instead of a piece of paper.

    I totally agree with you. My guess is we will get a further update once they put the schedule in place.

    Just to let everyone know, I got tickets a couple nights ago! Randomly they had more, even though they never announced it. They probably had around 50-100 more, but they were gone within the first couple of hours. I guess word spread quick. Anyways, I got my legit 4 day pass/preview night for 100 bucks and will be there!!!

    Does anyone know what parking is like down in San Diego? I have the option of staying in a nice hotel about 20 minutes away from the Con for free, but we would have to pay for parking each of the four days.

    From what I could see, it does not look good and it seems more advisable to take a shuttle in from your hotel.
