    When we went on our first cruise two years ago, we pre-paid for parking at the terminal online on the Port Canaveral website. Now, they have changed the website and I can't find anywhere to reserve parking online. Did they do away with pre-paid port parking altogether? Or am I just missing something?

    Something else that you may not know - they don’t allow you into the parking lot until 9:45am. We sailed on the Dream this past Monday and arrived a bit after 8am only to find we couldn’t enter until 9:45am.

    AFAIK, they started blocking new cruisers from entering the port to park early around 2 years ago. Now what time they've been actually allowing entry has varied a bit from time to time, but generally it's around 10:00 for private vehicles and 11:00 for paid private transportation (except for DCL buses and those private transfer companies that pay extra to enter early).

    I'm unsure as to the discussion as we parked before 9:30 a week and a half ago.

    In November 2016 we parked before 9:00am however this year there was a sign at the parking area that the lot was opening at 9:45am. We were told by one of the parking authority employees it was a Disney decision but one of the Disney employees said that wasn’t the case and it was the parking authority. It would have been nice had they informed us of the time change.

    It’s not opened until 9:30-10:00 for as long as I can remember.
    Here is a post from 2009 saying it opens at 9:30.

    What about other parking areas near the port? Has anyone used those lately? I see they offer better pricing, but do they have shuttles to the port?

    NOTE

    Park Port Canaveral has moved from the
    8600 Astronaut Boulevard (A1A) location .... (as I predicted cuz the property was sold)

    new address

    500 Thurm Boulevard
    Cape Canaveral, FL

    other side of US-1 ... not far but note the new directions ....

    Park N Cruise remains open and at their same location

    Lot's of Honor appears to have closed or sold out or merged .... if you check Google Maps the current address comes up same at Park N Cruise. I saw the lots of honor shuttles parked in an otherwise empty lot. LofH website pictures now show Park N Cruise shuttle vehicles ....

    I used PnC in November with no complaints.

    I used park n cruise in Nov ...... I did not leave my keys ....... not sure where you saw that ... required for the valet service I suppose as how can they bring the car up front for you without the keys? But valet is OPTIONAL ......

    and for the record I accidentally left my car UNLOCKED with cash in the car as well as expensive sunglasses

    all of which was there when I came back after a week .....

    the other members of our party used Park Port Canaveral and were very satisfied. We stayed at the Raddison and its the same company that services that hotel. In fact, the overflow parking is at the Raddison as well. Large shuttles, friendly drivers. Well organized. 5 minute trip.

    We want to park at port. What terminal is it and what level is best to park? I assume we just pay when we arrive? Any idea if this is in cash/ dollors
    Thanks

    At Port Canaveral: The garage is right next to the terminal. All floors are good. Although on the third floor there is a walkway connecting the garage and terminal:)
    You do pay as you enter the garage. Cash or credit cards.
