Vote of the week: Paying extra for premium parking at a theme park?
Written by Robert Niles
Several theme parks, including the closest to my home, Universal Studios Hollywood, now offer a premium parking option, available for an extra charge.Tweet
Universal Hollywood's premium parking puts you in a surface lot just steps from the park's entrance, instead of in the parking garages on the other side of CityWalk. It can be a good deal on days that aren't so sunny that you need to park in the shade... and if you are going to the theme park. (Obviously, you'll want to park in the CityWalk garages if you're going to CityWalk.)
Some parks offer premium parking to their top-level annual passholders, too. Let's talk about these options today. Would you spend the extra cash for a better parking option, whether that be a one-day upgrade or for a higher-priced annual pass?
Tell us in the comments about the best and worst parking experiences you've had at a theme park. And have a great weekend!
