Where is everyone parking for PCC 4.0?

Just wondering if anyone is using the off-site parking for the cruise. I'm tempted to try one since parking at the port is so expensive. Anyone ever used these before?

I've used the offsite parking at Port Everglades in Ft Lauderdale several times and it was fine.

I've not tried the one at Port canaveral yet.

The few times we've driven to the port we've arrived a day early and used one of the many hotels that have special rates for cruises. You get parking and transportation to/from the port. We used the Courtyard and were very happy with it.

i am using park n cruise. I got a 5.99 a day rate then they shuttle you to the port. I have never used before, but comes highly rated from the cruise board. We got a rental car for all 10 days plus parking that was cheaper than 2 one way rentals.

Yeah, I'd go the hotel route if you go offsite parking, the complete list of hotels that offer that is here: http://www.parkingstay.com.

At least then you know someone won't be driving your car around while you're gone >>>> http://youtu.be/so6VwA3XwWA

Here is a new Option for your parking during 4.0:

We just met with Todd From Cruise Parking of Port Canaveral and he is willing to go down to $3.50 per day to anyone who will donate $20 to GKTW for our Flattie Vacations. When you call just say that the DISBoards Welcome center sent you. Check out the link below!!!

See you all in One week,
