Parking at SW cost

How much is parking at SW? Do they accept credit cards? I am trying to plan on the amount of cash we need on hand for next week. Thanks!

Thanks! I am wondering if we need cash, so I e-mailed them to ask.

I have another parking question:

Let's say I want to go to Sea World in the morning, and then spend the afternoon at Aquatica. Do I have to pay to park at both places? Or is it like Disney where I can park hop and only pay once. Or are they so close to each other that you'd just park in one lot and walk over to the other park?

I was just reading about this on Aquatica website, you do like in Disney, you keep the receipt and its good for both places (even includes Busch Gardens) they consider them "sister parks". Have a wonderful time.

I pretty sure there is a shuttle b/w parks (SW, A, DC), but we didn't use it so I'm not positive. We saw a SW bus when we did the shuttle from our hotel.

Not sure about credit cards, but I can't imagine they don't take them.

You can show your receipt from one park for the other. They will keep it and give you a new one. Just be sure your SO doesn't throw it away when he takes the car for gas AFTER you tucked it safely into the compartment in the console. I made him go back and fish it out of the trash bin

That is to funny, I don't think my DH would like if I did that, but somehow I know I would be the one to throw it out!

There is a shuttle from SW to Aquatica. Just leave your car parked at SW, walk down past the gates to get in and keep going, and it is at the very end. It runs back and forth constantly. And it is only a 5 min run to go over with them. So instead of moving everything I would just take the shuttle. We have an AP for SW so we park there, and go from there to get the free parking!

Here is the response I got:


Thank you again for contacting us. You may pay for parking with cash, credit or debit at the parking toll booth. To save time, I recommend you purchase our parking pass online by clicking here and selecting SeaWorld Orlando Online Parking pass.
