That does sound like a great deal! Would love to see Universal Orlando copying that deal for City Walk. Maybe add in an enticer like free entrance to City Walk clubs?

Universal Orlando has a similar deal already, actually. Movie and Meal Deal, I think is what they call it. You get vouchers for two meals at certain Citywalk restaurants and two vouchers for movie tickets, with 3D and/or IMAX being an upcharge. The one thing it doesn't include? Parking, at all.

I guess Orlando wants to keep it's guests from the park at night rather than draw locals? Or maybe they figure half the town already has an annual pass including free parking anyway?

Didn't Universal Orlando used to offer free parking after a certain time of day on weeknights?

Sounds nice!

@Robert Universal used to offer free parking after 6pm up until I think it was Mardi Gras last year or HHN two years ago when they started charging $3 for after 6pm parking. I believe it is still the same right now. Don't quote me on that though. Might only be like that for busy times like special events or holidays and weekends.

@Hermione Yes I am aware of that deal but the Hollywood version sounds much better. I mean come one, taking someone on a date and just dropping the car of at Valet, can't beat that for parking. So I think Universal Orlando should consider that as well. Would make it a lot more attractive to local crowds. And hey in comparison I'd actually consider that deal over the current one.

Yeah, parking is $3 after 6 and free after 10, except when the parks are open until 10 (aka july and december) then they push both back a few hours.

Plus, the valet drop-offs at Hollywood are much closer to the park, restaurants and shopping than the valet drop-off in Orlando, unless they've moved it in Orlando since I was there last. No long walk over that bridge.
