My Problem with $12 Parking
I am in Orlando for a conference called VoiceCon and today when I went to the facility to attend the show they tried to charge me $12 for the privilidge of parking. This irritates me. Why? Well no other facility or hotel in the Orlando area charges you for parking - only the theme parks and the Gaylord Palms is no theme park. Also, it irritates me when a hotel tries to charge you $220 per night and then tries to nickel and dime you for everything else (like the Gaylord Palms). So I did what any red blooded good employee would do...I parked somewhere else, but where you might ask? How about Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort with no fee and took a shuttle to the Gaylord Palms. Tonight I am going to see Cirque Du Soliel's La Nouba at Disney's Westside and there is no fee for parking there. The lesson of this story - the Gaylord Palms is nice, but unless it comes with a butler or fellatio $12 for parking and $220 a night for a hotel is daffy.
