I have always told people they should try taking the trolley in instead of parking towntown but aparently Comic con is also suggesting this.

It apears that during comic con you can park for free at Qualcomm Stadium and pay a few dollars for a trolley pass and take that in.

Don't worry about riding in costume....they are used to it during comic con and you really won't be the only one

Some good..no..some great advice here. I did this last year in costume {my first time cosplaying} and the year before {my first - and only - time attending all four days.

I gotta third this advice! That's what I do every year. They do run the special event trolleys for Comic Con. If you're going by yourself, it's cheaper than parking (although parking downtown is probably cheaper if you have a lot of people carpooling), it drops you off right in front of the convention center, and you don't have to deal with driving downtown on a busy weekend. :D

And I LOVE going in costume on the trolley then. There's a number of other people in costume. I think last year there was me (Stargate Atlantis), a knight, and Batman in the car I was in. :p

Sadly, I think I'm only going to use the trolley tonight, because i pack lunch in my car, along with my emergency kit for my costumes, so i find it nice to have my car pretty close (plus, its nice to dump what you buy versus lugging it around)

How long does it take to get to the CC from Qualcomm via the trolley? It seemed like there were many stops in the schedual.

We parked downtown at Ace parking by Petco Park, 5.00 day and walking distance to the CC.

For groups, though?

Mm, our group considered the trolley, but it was cheaper to pack all 6 of us into a car, park downtown, and walk.

But then, we've only ever had 1 of us cosplaying at a time. (This '06, our guy put on his armor and cape in the parking lot before we walked over to the Con.) Already being in costume vs. dressing at the Con might be a consideration for groups when deciding whether to ride the trolley or pack into a car. . .

I'm not sure about from Qualcomm, but from Linda Vista it took 15-20 minutes. :)
