    Hi, I saw someone mention that you can purchase a parking pass for seaworld/aquatica for $30 for unlimited use when you go to DC. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Yes.

    The day resort package admission price at Discovery Cove currently includes:

    •Unlimited admission to SeaWorld® and Aquatica™ in Orlando for 14 consecutive days around the date of your reservation

    Parking is $15 at the other parks so if you are going to spend more than one day at the other parks it may be to your advantage to buy the parking option.

    The offers do change and there is also an ultimate package that includes Busch Gardens in Tampa. It is an hour drive from WDW and is a great park to consider.

    We went to DC September 2012. We had booked DC online and later found out about the parking pass. We called to add the pass to our reservation and it wasn't a problem at all. I think it cost $25 at that time. Once we had our photos taken for our DC id tags, the staff member gave us the parking pass card (similar size to a business card). We then showed it each time we entered the parking lot at SW and left it on the dash of the vehicle. Great savings and worked out really well. :cool1:

    I ordered our tickets for dc today. I ordered the parking pass which was $25 which is a bargain because we will be parking at SW/Aquatica at least 5 times and it will save us a bunch. Just one thing, we have to go to go to dc to pick up the parking pass even though we will be going to sw/aquatica before our dc day.

    sorry, I don't know how that would work. Our first day was DC so it wasn't a concern for us. I'm wondering if you show the parking attendant the print out of your DC reservation showing that you've paid for parking if that would be sufficient? Sorry I can't be of any help, I hope someone who has experience with this will chime in, because I'm curious too. Hope you have a great trip! :)

    The reservationist told me to copy my e-ticket and I will have to go to DC before we go to sw/aquatica to pick up our actual parking pass. You can't show the e-ticket to sw/aquatica to prove you have parking, you actually have to make a trip to dc and they will give me the parking pass. Not too big of a deal because dc and sw/aquatica are right near each other. The day we are arriving we are going to have a slow day (getting up at 4am for our flight;)), so we will just go to dc and pick up the parking pass to have for the week.

    Can you order the parking pass online when you order your tickets? Or would I be better off calling?

    Thanks!
