We got free parking at Royal Pacific with Virgin when we last went. I do wonder if they just bundle it into the base price though.
Uh? Yes? That’s what any vacation package thing does it.OVERCHARGES you. That’s how they get a little cut. I find it cheaper and rather better to just book everything myself. Can’t wait till the new universal hotel is up. That will save me probably 1500-1800 a year. Or I’ll go a extra trip might actually see Christmas events next year.

Not necessarily with Virgin as you can cook it separate and still get all the benefits. I booked Hard Rock through Virgin holidays this year and it was £400 cheaper than every where else. I booked my flights separate with my air miles and Disney hotel through hotels.com.

I would have to imagine they want to actually lose out on parking fees with increased attendance vs build more parking. But If anyone figures out self driving in the next few years even for short distances from I drive the whole season pass structure might change tho.

I've heard these parking fees are pure profit for them

Once they hit the point that it's cheaper to park your car in the street and let it get towed they'll slow down.
