Where to Park for MegaCon

megaconparking2014We would like to share the following announcement on behalf of the Orange County Convention Center, the venue of MegaCon 2014.

The following map indicates available parking areas for MegaCon 2014 during the dates of March 21-23. The OCCC charges $9 per standard sized vehicle or $15 for oversized vehicle (RV or Bus). The OCCC will be providing complimentary shuttle services to and from the Destination Parkway Garage and Flat Lot, which is directly across from the Hilton Orlando hotel.

If you are staying at the DoubleTree Orlando by Sea World, the host hotel for MegaCon 2014, MegaCon will be providing complimentary shuttle service to and from the convention center and the Doubletree Friday-Sunday.

If you are staying at one of the hotels on I-Drive or Universal Blvd and do not want to drive over, there are cabs in the area that will drop you off in front of the South Building. Cost may vary based on distance away.

An alternative is utilizing the I-Ride Trolley, which has pick up and drop off locations in numerous locations up and down I-Drive. You can pay $2.00 per ride or purchase off their website or at your hotel, a 3 day unlimited pass for $7.00. This is a great alternative if you want to get back and forth to MegaCon without having to drive and find parking. For more information on the I-Ride Trolley for pick up and drop off locations or to purchase a trolley pass, please visit their website at:
