Universaal Car Parking - Alternatives?

Hi All, Going to Universal next week and planning to go for quite a number of days. Is there any alternative to paying $15 every day for parking? Is the best alternative parking at a hotel then hopping on a free shuttle, if so what one?

I think you'll find the shuttles are only for hotel guests. You could always get a bus, but for all the hassle I would rather pay the parking fee.

For what it is worth - Standard Parking is $14 not $15 - Still expensive

If your hotel doesn't offer a shuttle,you can arrange it rhough Mears-you can't just go to a hotel where you are not a guest and use their shuttle if that's what you mean, Otherwise,you just have to pay the parking fee at Universal.

As there is no indication where your staying we have no idea how far you would be driving your car to pick up a shuttle or a bus .

Also remember that car parking spaces at restaurants shops and hotels is private parking and belongs to the business. If they find cars dumped there all day and it becomes obvious you are just using them to go to the parks . As there is no on street parking in theses areas any cars left there get towed. It is quite possible you might return to find your car towed away.

Then you will have a much bigger problem. There is plenty of towing companies who will to remove cars quickly for the redemption fees they charge.

If its a hire car and you just walk away you might find the total cost of a replacement car charged to your credit card when you get home.

Yes it is $14.00 for each day. But I did just learn the other day something that may be of interest to some people. if you happen to be going in the evening after 6:00, it is only $3.00 to park. I, of course, arrived at 5:35 and paid the full fee. Oh well.
