Remember that it costs $17 to park at Universal now, unless you have a preferred or premier annual pass. Since the parks will be busy, you may find yourself spending a lot of time walking from the parking garage to the parks themselves. If you want to cut down your walking time, going with valet parking may be an option. It’s $30 for regular visitors for all-day valet. It’s $15 if you have a preferred annual pass and it costs nothing if you have a premier park pass.
