Parking at Walt Disney and Universal- Parking passes?

We have the park hopper passes and will be here for 7 days? Is it ten dollars to park everyday? Can you buy a parking pass?

Hello Dizzidezi,

Parking is $9.00 per day at the Disney parks unless your staying at a Disney resort. If so it's free. Universal is $10.00 per day and if you arrive after 5:00 it's free.

The only way to get free parking at Disney with a ticket is to buy an annual pass. Otherwise, unless you're an on-property Disney resort guest, you have to pay the $9.

There is a round-about way to park at Downtown Disney and go to the parks, but it takes some doing (parking at DTD is free).

Go to Downtown Disney and catch a bus to one of the resorts. Then, take another bus or other form of Disney transportation, to the park of your choice. It's slow and tedious, but it is the only way to get free parking if you are not a Disney resort guest.

How early do they start running the DTD buses to the resorts? I never thought it would be early enough to make it worth while to use them to get to the parks. It seems like they don't start running until 9 or so, and then you've got to change transport at the resort to get to the park. All the literature just says transportation starts one hour before the "park" opens. I can remember being at the Contemporary and not being able to catch a bus to DTD until late afternoon when people were going to Pleasure Island. You had to go to the TTC if you wanted one earlier than that. It just seems like a lot of hassle to save $9.
