General Parking

General Parking is going to be your most basic and cheapest option when parking at SeaWorld Orlando.

It's also the most common parking choice amongst visitors. 

General Parking will be $30 consistently every day of the year, for one car, motorcycle or RV/Camper.

You're able to pre-pay for parking directly from the SeaWorld official site.


Why Pre-Pay For Parking?

It's simple, when you pre-pay for parking you can just show the park attendant the receipt, and they'll seamlessly let you through in seconds.

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

Take into consideration the hundreds of visitors who will do this while you're in line behind them, and you'll wish everyone had prepaid parking!

Preferred Parking

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

You may think that it's not a big deal, however you should take into consideration how you will feel after a long day at the park.

After walking around for the entire day and having a fantastic experience, for some guests they don't want to spend another half an hour (on a busy day) walking back and trying to find their car.

Preferred Parking prices change daily and can range from $45-$60.

Upgrading From General Parking to Preferred Parking

With VIP parking, you'll have a reserved parking space for one day, extremely close to the entrance of the park.
