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!

2. Up-Close Parking

Up-Close 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 $42-$52.

Upgrading From General Parking to Up-Close Parking

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

This occurs more often than you think, and the parking attendants will help you easily upgrade your pass.
