New Parking Fee at Universal Orlando

As of yesterday, January 1, Universal Orlando began charging $3 for parking between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Parking is still free after 10.

Used to be that parking was free after 6, the better to draw people to the Cineplex, the restaurants, and the nightclubs in CityWalk.

Maybe now that Pleasure Island has closed, Universal thinks people will pay to reach CityWalk's nightclubs. Perhaps. Seems to me, given all the dire news we hear about the economy, people will think twice about going to a movie at the Cineplex or dining at a restaurant in CityWalk when free alternatives abound nearby.

More to come on this.

I completely don't get it. $3 is pretty meaningless to Universal and people going in after 6 are definitely going to be spending money.
$3 might be meaningless. That is why Universal has now raised the fee to $6 after 6pm. Maybe that won't be meaningless. Bottom line, Universal doesn't care what people think. Their attitude, "Pleasure Island is closed people, pay us or stay home!"
