Car parking

Hi, Can anyone help? I am travelling to Orlando in April and I have discovered you can visit more than one Disney Park on the same day but just pay one car parking charge, is this true. Also If I visited say Seaworld could I then use the same car park ticket for Universal, City Walk the same night? The parking is getting very expensive so cutting down on costs is a must

Any advise would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance x

At Disney, yes, only pay Once per day. You will need the Park Hopper Option on your Ticket in order to visit more than one Park in a day.

Seaworld and Universal, I don't believe so

Yes it's true you can visit as many theme park car parks at Disney in one day. Make sure you keep your parking receipt.

I don't believe you can use your Seaworld parking ticket for Universal though. If you go to Universal between 6pm & 10pm the fee is $5, after 10pm parking is free.

If you have an Orlando Flex ticket you can park use the same parking ticket all day.

To combine all that info...

you canNOT visit more than one Disney park on the same day by just paying one car parking charge. You pay only one car parking charge per day if you move between the 4 parks = true, but to gain admission through the turnstiles at more than one Disney park on the same day you need the Park Hopper option on your ticket.

A SeaWorld parking ticket/receipt will not work in the same day at Universal...unless you have FlexTicket. If you have separate tickets for SeaWorld and Universal it will be a separate charge. Parking is the same location for Universal parks and CityWalk. It's $15, $5 after 6pm, free after $10.

Disney and SeaWorld are $14 per day no matter the time. Wet N Wild and Aquatica also charge parking. Disney Water Parks, Downtown Disney, and Discover Cove have free parking.

Hi - sorry to hijack the thread

We're travelling from the UK in April too (54 sleeps, not that I'm counting :))

I've seen some parking passes for sale (or rather to rent) on ebay at £15 per week.

These sound great - but have I missed something vital?

Thx

Spambo these guys that rent out annual passes for parking are conmen. They buy up annual passes rent them out at £15 per week (completely illegal), these passes are non transferable and can lead to you being refused entry to the park, they can be confiscated by the car park security and then you are out of pocket for the £60 deposit plus the £15 per week you will have paid to these guys.

Do the right (and legal) thing by paying for you parking on the day.

If an offer looks too good to be true, as with all things in life, it probably is.

Disney: park at Magic Kingdom and use the monorail to go to Epcot and buses to go to AK and HS.

Sea World: parking is $14. That parlibg ticket wont work if you try to use it at Universal.
