    So should we be comparing to the 81 Regular Season home games? Because Universal/Disney still looks like a steal comparatively.

    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

    They get to double dip on parking profits during HHN, too, with having essentially two days worth of guests come in the same day.

    They are expecting that the crowds will be so high that people have to start parking at Universal.

    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.

    It's a lot cheaper to simply park at CBBR if you're gonna pay for parking, tbh, then just take the water taxi over.
