Types of Parking Options Available at SeaWorld

There are four types of parking options available at SeaWorld Orlando, including:

  1. General Parking
  2. Preferred Parking
  3. VIP Parking
  4. RV Parking

1. General Parking at SeaWorld Orlando

General Parking simply allows you to park your vehicle in the park, at no specific spot, making it the least expensive parking option.

The earlier that you arrive at the park, the closer that you'll be able to park, as the crowd tends to arrive in the early afternoon.

General Parking can range between $30-$35 for one car or motorcycle, depending on what time of the year you visit.

Consider Pre-Paying For Parking Before Arriving

When you pre-pay for parking online, it's a much faster process as you can simply show the parking attendant your receipt, and quickly head to the parking lot to get your day started.

Whereas if you decide to pay at the park, you'll have to spend a few minutes at the booth, as they process your payment, before providing you your receipt.

2. Preferred Parking at SeaWorld Orlando

Preferred Parking will provide you access to park closer to the entrance of the park, at a higher cost than general parking.

The parking attendant will put a Preferred Parking paper on your windshield, and you'll be instructed to drive through a specific Preferred Parking Area (away from General parking), that will be located closer to the park.

The main reason why visitors purchase Preferred Parking is to ensure that they aren't parked at the back of the park, on the busier days.

If you're planning to arrive hours after the park opens, you'll want to consider purchasing Preferred Parking.

Preferred Parking prices change daily and can range from $45-$60 depending on the time of the year which you are visiting.

It is typically more expensive during the weekends, busy season, as well as near the holidays. 

The SeaWorld site provides a calendar that shows the differences in pricing prior to adding it to the cart.

Upgrading From General Parking to Preferred Parking

If you decide to pre-pay for a General parking pass, and later on decide that you'd actually like to go the Preferred parking route, you can do so at any parking toll booth.

3. VIP Parking at SeaWorld Orlando

With VIP parking, you'll have a reserved parking space for one day, extremely close to the entrance of the park (even closer than Preferred Parking).

VIP Parking prices change daily and can range from $60-$100.

4. RV Parking at SeaWorld Orlando

RV Parking costs $45 and will allow RV's to park at specific spots in the parking lot.

The cost is about $15 more than a normal vehicle, due to RV's being much larger than normal vehicles, often taking up multiple parking spots.
