Parking

We are going to see IMPACT and using their VIP seating program. If we go over early in the day to pick up our tickets and then go back for the show..........will we have to pay for parking twice???

Nope, save your parking receipt and show them on your return trip. No charge.

Thanks...........we'll head over and get tickets early that day (we might just change our minds and make that one of our Universal days) We are doing 4 at WDW and 3 at Universal.

You do have to pay parking everyday at Universal right? We are staying at WDW so no parking fees on those days. We will need to pay parking 3 times at Universal though (4 if we don't make our IMPACT day a Universal day) is that right?

Yeah, you have to pay for parking every single day you're there, but never more than once per day.

As for the tickets, I'm not sure you have to go early. When I've done the VIP deal I just had to bring a print out of the email saying I had the tickets. Before you waste time during your vacation you may want to make one call seeing if you really have to show up early to claim those and then come back later.

We just decided to make that a Universal Day and solve the problem, but thanks for the info. We were going to Universal on Sat 1/5 and Sun 1/6 and Mon 1/7. We are going now on Thu 1/3 and Sun 1/6 and Mon 1/7.............hopefully that Sunday will be a little bit slower of a day so we can go to the WWoHP that day.

I am so cheap, I just didn't want to pay for parking one extra day.

I know, I looked at that express pass calendar and it looks pretty bad. Sunday, the prices go back down to the $35.99 rate so I figure that's the best day to go to WWoHP. When we are there Thursday, we'll just do the best we can at Universal Studios.

We don't go back until the 8th either which is why we are there then. DH is a teacher, gotta go when school is out and summer doesn't work for me because it is hot. I would rather fight crowds in the winter than in the heat of summer

if the ep costs stay the same for that sunday, that will be the day to go ......


lower the ep, the less the crowds.




hope you have a great time at the darkside!
