Hello, If you purchase a Cedar Point ticket package with your hotel reservation parking will be included. You will also receive free Cedar Point Shores admission and one-hour Early Entry. I hope this helps! -Tyler

Hello, Depending on where you go in town it should only take 10-15 minutes to commute to most restaurants and Castaway Bay is 3 miles from the Cedar Point parking lot. I hope this helps!
