    My car better be washed and detailed by the time I leave the park for that price!

    To me one of the best perks of having an AP is the free parking. I've saved easily 100 dollars alone by having my AP for parking.

    Re: Universal Orlando increases the parking fee

    It's hard to imagine not having an AP to Busch or Uni. They are priced so cheaply. I seem to always find that 2-park, 2-year deal that reduces each park down to like $50/year. And since that includes parking, it's equivalent to getting the admission free if I just visit 4 times a year and pay for parking. Or something like that.

    That's what we did. Two years for 180 dollars. Best deal ever. Between free parking and discounts on merchandise and food we've easily come close to paying for the APs that way, and that's before you consider all the free park admissions.

    Still not the worst - as far as I know it's Magic Mountain, which, for several years, has charged $15 for cars.

    Really? When I went to a concert at Hard Rock Live back in the fall of 2006, I went after... I forget what time now, 6:00? ...and parked for free.

    BTW, who did you see?

    I paid 20.00 for parking when I went to an Orlando Magic game! So it isn't the worst in Orlando.

    But like Kevin said, if you are local get an AP and it pays for itself!

    Actually, if you valet park, they offer a shampoo and detailing service at an extra charge. I remember looking at the prices and saying, "Too much!"

    Re: Universal Orlando increases the parking fee

    ^^ They do that at International Plaza in Tampa in one of the covered parking areas. $30 to wash my car while I shop? No thanks. I can run it through the dinky car wash at the Shell/Circle K on the corner by my house for $5 and it does a decent enough job.
