We know parking can be a hassle. We know it can be even more of a hassle when you’re in an unfamiliar city and competing with 10,000 other people for a spot.
Don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for: to make that hassle disappear. This is your handy-dandy guide to finding parking for VidCon 2013.
A few important notes:
If you are staying at a hotel we highly suggest you park at the hotel you are staying at; see below for all of the parking rates at the closest hotels.
The Anaheim Convention Center does not allow overnight parking
Anaheim Convention Center Parking
This is the place where all the magic happens – VidCon is the second happiest place on Earth, if you ask us. The closest lots to where VidCon 2013 will be held (Hall A and the Arena on the map below) are lots 1 and 2.
Lot 1 – From Katella Avenue
While traveling along Katella Avenue, turn into the Anaheim Convention Center (only way to enter lot 1).
Lot 2 – From Katella Avenue
While traveling along Katella Avenue, turn into the Anaheim Convention Center. Exit onto Hotel Way.
If you are traveling East on Katella Avenue, you can turn right onto Hotel Way directly.
Turn right into the parking structure.
Lot 2 – From Harbor Boulevard
Turn onto Convention Way.
Turn right onto Hotel Way, just before the Hilton.
Enter the parking structure on the left.
If lots 1 and 2 are filled, another option is to park in lots 4 and 5 behind the Convention Center. Please keep in mind these are a fair distance away from where VidCon is taking place, so we suggest you add walking time to your estimated arrival time.
Parking in any of the Convention Center’s lots is $12 a day (subject to change) with no and in/out privileges. The parking lot usually opens an hour-hour an a half before an event, and closes between midnight and 2 a.m. (subject to change).

If you are staying at a different hotel in the area that is not listed here, we suggest that you call ahead or check their website to find out the rates for where you are staying.
Another suggestion is to think about carpooling…it’s good for saving on parking costs, gas money, and is even better for our planet!
