Should theme parks offer advance-purchase, multi-day discounts on parking?

Each year we go to Orlando for eight glorious days, usually in April or May. What we have noticed each and every year is that the parking fees go up about a buck. We do like the fact that the fee and taxes are always included giving you a nice round number - $14 or $15. Imaging if they did not do this and how much longer the entry lines would be for each parking lot, if you had to wait for loose change.
Anyway, my simple idea is to have a lower daily parking fee for folks who pre-pay for parking. Also, the more parking days you buy, the cheaper it gets. Just like if you buy more Disney park entry days, the lower the average cost per day.
We can take it one step further — how about a Fastpass-style lane for those using an Easy-pass system, plus give them a small discount.
What do you think?
With the end of the year approaching I would like to wish you all great health in the future and happy holidays!
