    Universal Studios Parking!

    I never understood the parking.

    I know the General Parking $10-15.
    but I have no idea where Front Gate parking $30-35 is at.
    also where is Preferred Parking $20-25?

    and is it worth paying an extra $5-20. Honestly they all look the same. Someone show me a map.

    Also it slows down the line when the employee has to explain all 3 options to each car. I just straight up say I want General parking and have my money ready.

    Re: Universal Studios Parking!

    If I recall correctly, Preferred Parking is located on levels 6 and 7 of the Frankenstein structure, the flat lot adjacent to CityWalk (approximately between Billabong and Tony Roma's) and on the first level and partially the second level of the Jurassic structure. I believe Main Gate Parking is the remaining portion of the above flat lot directly in front of the Globe Fountain/main entrance (approximately between Billabong and Saddle Ranch).

    Re: Universal Studios Parking!

    ^I love how you say "show me a map", but when the cars in front of you are shown the map, you complain how it slows down the line.

    But to your point, since I never bother asking for it (because I have the AP that includes general parking), I'm not 100% clear on the differences either. But I'm fairly sure one of those options is the flat, outdoor lot directly behind Citywalk and the globe fountain, as mentioned above.

    I believe it would be considered preferred because there's no need to take any sort of escalator/elevator/stairs to get to the park, and walks through Citywalk are minimized a bit more. So if you feel it's worth an extra $10-ish bucks or more to have a considerably shorter walk, then it's worth it.

    Oh, and let's not forget to add the Valet parking option as well!
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    they have it because there are people that will pay for it. Same reason why they have a FOL and VIP ticket.

    Re: Universal Studios Parking!

    So bacislly preferred and general parking share the same lot but different levels? i parked Frankenstein for general parking level 5. But level 6 & 7 is preferred? Wow, I think that's a rip off. Big rip off. I think universal is tricking people.
