Universal matches Disney parking rate hike

Regular parking cost raised to $17


ORLANDO, Fla. – It took less than a week for Universal Orlando to match Disney World's parking rate hike.

Universal Orlando raised its "regular parking" fee from $16 to $17 on Thursday. The park's "preferred parking" and valet parking remained unchanged.

Disney World raised its regular parking rate from $15 to $17 on Sunday.

The parking cost increase comes a little more than a month after both Disney World and Universal Orlando raised their ticket prices.
