Calling all Universal Orlando Resort adventurers! As you plan your epic theme park quest, there’s a key update to keep on your radar: parking fees.

Universal Orlando recently adjusted their parking prices. Regular daily parking has seen a slight bump from $30 to $32. Don’t worry though, Prime Parking and RV/Bus parking remain steady for now, with Prime spots ranging from $50-$60 and RV/Bus parking at $42.

Here’s a quick cheat sheet for current parking fees:

  • Regular Parking: $32
  • Prime Parking: $50-$60 (seasonal pricing)
  • Prime Upgrade: $18-$28 (seasonal pricing)
  • RV/Bus Parking: $42
  • Valet Parking: Varies by duration and time of day (before/after 6 pm). Starts at $32 for the first 2 hours.

Even with the slight increase, there are ways to be a parking wizard at Universal Orlando:

  • Matinee Movie Magic: Catch a flick at Universal Cinemark between 11 am and 6 pm, and with two or more matinee tickets, regular parking becomes your free spell (restrictions apply).
  • Night Owl Ninjas: For those who are planning a trip to Citywalk for a bit of nightlife (after midnight on Halloween Horror Nights or after 6 pm on regular days), self-parking transforms into free parking!
  • Annual Passholder Perks: Don’t forget your annual passholder superpowers! Premier Passholders get complimentary self-parking, while Preferred Passholders snag 50% off valet parking after their first visit (subject to availability).

Remember: Pricing can change based on the season and the day you visit. For the latest intel, visit the official Universal Orlando Resort website before your trip.

Planning Pointers for Parking Success:

  • Factor the varying parking options into your Universal Orlando budget. Note Prime parking may not always be available, and valet parking is in a different location from the main parking garage!
  • If you’re flexible, nighttime free parking can be a real money-saving spell.
  • Staying onsite at a Universal hotel often includes complimentary park transportation, eliminating daily parking fees altogether.

We hope this helps you navigate the parking situation at Universal Orlando! Now get out there and have a thrilling, magical adventure!
