248 Pechanga Arena San Diego Tips
- Casual 2
- Dine before you go 2
- Food and drinks for purchase 1
Eat at home or at a nearby restaurant to avoid the overpriced junk food inside the arena.
Park on the street outside the arena to avoid a $20 parking fee.
Food at Valley View was fair price., but no place to eat but your seat. Phil's BBQ & Red Lobster is a block past it. Eat leisurely there first.
I was surprised the parking was $20, went behind the venue on Kurtz St. for $10.
The weather was Cold and windy. I wore Casual and comfortable.

Wear ear plugs. Sound too loud. Bring binoculars. Dolly is small on big stage. Could not take photos because of lighting. Dolly's dress was all glitter so she appeared as "ghost" in all my photos. Bring binoculars unless you are on front row. Yep, parking is obscene $20. Tax payers already paid for Sports Arena and Parkin lot. Wonder whose pocket this $20 is filling.
An Evening with Dolly Parton
We went to FLAVORS OF MAYURA before the concert & left one car there. In retrospect might have left both and walked into the Valley View Casino facility. There is plenty of food for purchase inside the venue. Water is very expensive $4.50 per bottle.
The weather was warm and my daughter tells me that this venue is often warm, so wearing something cool is advised. I wore light top. My daughter wore a sequined shell and jeans. .
DON'T park across the street in the Home Depot/Ralphs lot. You will get towed.
Don't plan on eating at Chili's before the show, as we did - way too crowded! Go across the street to the pizza or hamburger place.
There was some limited street parking along the side of the Sports Arena. Parking would be free if you could score a spot.
snack food available but I prefer dining before the show. Several good restaurants in the area near the arena.
I wore slacks, a nice top and jacket, comfortable shoes, lots of tairs to climb..
The weather was not applicable, because it is indoors. I wore jeans & a casual top.
Cirque du Soleil: Varekai
The wait at the restaurants around the sports arena may cut into the event time. We went to Ralphs and they made us two fresh boars head sandwiches which were amazing!
Plan on spending $25 for the souvenir basketball for autographs after the game. Suggest getting a seat on the South side (opposite side of the players seats) which is the direction most of the skits performed to.
Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Park early and walk to dinner.
Just My Opinion
Parking was $15 cash only per vehicle and was close. There were many items for purchase including toys, clothing, food, & photos which were all quite expensive. It was quick and easy to pick up the Goldstar tickets at the Will Call window. Many children in the audience were dressed up in costumes such as princesses. The vast majority of the children in the audience appeared to be babies to roughly age 8.
Disney on Ice: Worlds of Fantasy
We were seated on the first row off to the side, about 20 ft from the corner of the court. There were other people seated in regular folding chairs right around the court. It was a strong angle, and with heads in the way, it was hard to see all the action. Next time, I'd try to get seats right along the court, and at least a few rows up. :)
