Walt Disney World is testing a new preferred parking system at Magic Kingdom via the Ticket & Transportation Center and Epcot.
The regular parking rate at these parks is $20 for the day, but with preferred parking, the price jumps to $35. There are two sections dedicated to this new preferred parking, the Jafar section of the Magic Kingdom lot and the Amaze section at Epcot. There is no preferred parking being offered at Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom, at least not currently.
Other Orlando area theme parks, including SeaWorld and Universal Orlando Resort have offered preferred parking for quite some time, so the preferred parking practice is nothing new. SeaWorld’s preferred parking is an extra $5 on top of regular parking and Universal Orlando’s is an additional $10.
Disneyland in California does not offer preferred parking but Universal Studios Hollywood does.
Would you pay $35 to park closer at Epcot and Magic Kingdom?
