We stood in a really long line to get into the Convention Center at 9:30 AM. Turned out once we got to the front of the building, we could go in any door. Note to self for next year: Come right at 9:30 AM (if we’re not trying to get popular exclusives) and walk right in from the other side of the Convention Center without waiting in line!
We took the trolley into downtown. Usually, we don’t have Comic-Con badges so we have no reason to be in the areas that are in the pictures above.
