This is a wiki specific to tailgating so take it for what it’s worth: 

“Post-game tailgating is limited to two hours after the conclusion of the game. All cars must vacate the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot within a two hour window. Overnight parking is prohibited unless a special permit has been requested and granted.”

Meant for the cheap and free part.

The SDCC Survival Guide writer says he has a secret spot you can leave your car for a few days and you just need to email him to ask or something like that but I haven't had to try that before...

Alyssa came up with a good idea to park at the airport and take a shuttle downtown for Comic Con.

i think it's only makes sense if you drop the bags off at the hotel, drive to the airport, park the car, do comic con, then pick up the car, drive back to the hotel for the bags.

In addition the the long term parking at the airport there usually are cheaper lots a bit further out from the airport.

Exactly. And if you're not planning to drive during the Con, that's a great plan.

Wanted to post this here but I got parking spots at the MTS Garage and was worried about what time they open the lots.  I called earlier today and a lady I spoke to said that ALL lots open at 5 am and close at midnight.  Not sure about leaving cars there overnight or whatnot but maybe someone else can call for that.

If they close at Midnight I'd say you probably can't park overnight.

They've always stated that the lots close at midnight and overnight parking is not allowed.

some people say that for the hilton next door, if you switch your pass to the next day's that you could leave it overnight but that's at your own risk.

the midnight time is loosely enforced but they can tow anytime after that if they want.

I guess my biggest concern is do they shut down the gates at midnight.  In the past, I have always left around 10-11ish and don't worry about things like that.  This year, though, I have friends who are staying in hotels nearby so I might catch up with a few of them a little later than normal.  I figure if I leave a little past midnight, it may not be a biggie, but was just curious if they lock down the garages and prevent all vehicles left from leaving.

im gonna guess it varies from location to location. some of the less close garages may not be staffed the same way. i'd say write to ACE parking and verify. they respond to their facebook and twitter accounts and i'm sure they'd respond to their emails too.

I see people selling their parking passes but how? They have the make, model and licence plate of the car it's registered to. Is there a way around that tok? (I'm not looking to buy, I've got my parking pass.)

I made a mistake one year of putting my license plate and make of car instead of my mom's car for two of the days.  I was nervous but I reasoned that if they asked, I could say that my car broke down and I was using another one instead.  The attendants at the gate did not appear to even check the ticket for make and model, they just scan the paper.  Its possible that they have security roam around and check the dash for the parking pass to confirm make and license match but who knows.  Nothing happened to my car so its possible you can get away with switching out a pass.  I should note that the fine print on the pass states that the permit is licensed only to the car described in the pass although it does not state any penalties if you get caught transferring the pass, so take the risk if you want.  Can't believe that Comic Con parking passes are being scalped though.  Crazy.

If you chose "rental" when you bought the pass, you didn't have to enter any specific vehicle information.
