The city of Orlando’s Downtown Development Board is making it easier than ever to drive, park, and explore the tastes, sights, and experiences found only in downtown.

City Of Orlando offering Free Parking and Valet when you visit participating restaurants in downtown

The city of Orlando’s Downtown Development Board is offering a new program that provides free parking and complimentary valet when visiting participating restaurants in downtown Orlando.

Visitors can now enjoy FREE parking at on-street metered and non-metered spaces, via the ParkMobile app, and complimentary valet at participating restaurants, while dining and shopping downtown thanks to the ParkDTO Program

Developed as a strategic initiative of the Downtown Orlando Community Redevelopment Area Plan, the new initiative started on Monday, May 15, with the aim of offering greater access to downtown for visitors.

The new program will give up to 2 hours of FREE parking at any metered and non-metered parking spot in downtown by using the ParkMobile code: ParkDTO.

To spread the FREE parking love, you can use the code a maximum of four (4) times per account.

Download the ParkMobile app now to be ahead of the parking game.

Plus if you are dining downtown you will receive validation for valet at participating downtown restaurants between 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm.

Promotion codes are valid 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Any amount owed in excess of the validated time is the responsibility of the person parking.

Parking meters are free in downtown Orlando before 8 a.m. and after 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, as well as all day Sunday.

Park DTO will run until Dec. 31, or whenever funds run out.

A list of participating restaurants and a map of the designated area for parking are now available.

Downtown Orlando continues to see multiple closures of businesses that have been in the area for years. That includes establishments like Harry Buffalo, Latitudes, Finnhenry’s, Lizzy McCormack’s, Walgreens, Mad Cow Theatre, and Barbarella, which all closed their doors in the past 18 months after multi-year runs in the area.

At the same time, over a dozen businesses have celebrated grand openings in downtown Orlando since the beginning of last year, including Proper, Pups Pub, Stemma Craft Coffee, Parlay, Bellhop, Solita, Tacos My Guey, High Tide, High-T, and Fixtion, among others.

For a list of the restaurants participating in the parking program, or for more information, visit the Park DTO website.
