As prices continue to rise for daily parking at the Orlando theme parks in Orlando, the additional $17-$20 cost per car per day can end up being a larger expense than what was budgeted for your Florida vacation.
Fortunately, VillaDirect has a few solutions on how to best utilize theme park parking. Many places offer free transportation to and from the parks, so you can save time, money and reduce stress on your next trip to the Florida theme parks.
Transportation Provided by the Parks:
Disney: Disney provides constant transportation to every place involved within their resort. One tip to keep your car shaded and avoid the daily parking rate is to park at the Disney Springs parking garage and then jump on a free bus to one of the connecting resorts. While Disney Springs will not go directly to the four main theme parks, it will take you to a connecting location. This may add 30-45 minutes to your trip, it is a great way to save money and see parts of the resort.
Busch Gardens: Busch Gardens is a theme park that is located in Tampa, which is about a 1.5 hour drive from Orlando. However, if you pre-purchase a ticket to the theme park, you can reserve a round trip shuttle ride from Orlando absolutely free of charge. To schedule your shuttle, call a VillaDirect guest service member or click here.
Legoland: An amazing park for the younger age group, or the young at heart, Legoland is located less than an hour outside of Orlando. To avoid the drive, traffic, and daily parking, Legoland offers a $5 shuttle bus that will pick you up in Orlando and take you to and from the park. To schedule your shuttle, call a VillaDirect guest service member or click here.
Transportation Provided by the Resorts:
Many of the VillaDirect vacation home resorts will provide complimentary shuttle services to the major theme parks. This is the most convenient route as you will not even have to spend any time driving and finding parking.
