Self-parking app MyPark makes shopping easier for Orlando visitors
MyPark, the Miami-based parking solution used by malls, public and private garages, has announced their expansion into the Orlando area at three Simon properties.
Guests can now use the on-demand, mobile self-parking service at The Florida Mall, Orlando International Premium Outlets and Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. This expansion features a total of 75 new spaces at the three shopping centers, and guests can choose a premium spot through the use of the MyPark app.
MyPark has installed 21 reserved and numbered spaces at The Florida Mall, 29 spaces at Orlando International Premium Outlets and 25 at the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, which include:
The Florida Mall
- Section A, 6 spaces – Entrance by Forever 21
- Section B, 9 spaces – Near dining pavilion entrance
- Section C, 6 spaces – Mall entrance near Macy’s
Orlando International Premium Outlets
- Section A, 8 spaces – Mall entrance by Oakley Vault
- Section B, 8 spaces – Mall entrance by Aeropostale
- Section C, 8 spaces – Entrance by Neiman Marcus Last Call
- Section D, 5 spaces – Near Victoria’s Secret
Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets
- Section A, 5 spaces – Entrance by Nike
- Section B, 5 spaces – Near Polo / Ralph Lauren
- Section C, 10 spaces – Main entrance near Banana Republic
- Section D, 5 spaces – Entrance by American Eagle Outfitters
Spaces can be booked on demand or reserved in advance through the app, at $3 for up to two hours, and $3 for each additional hour.
“Expanding MyPark into Orlando marks a milestone for the company, as it’s a high-demand market for tourists with approximately 68 million visitors per year,” said Luis Mayendia, president and CEO of MyPark. “MyPark will provide tourists with an innovative way to enhance their shopping experience, while solving Orlando’s residents’ concern of being able to go in and out of the mall for their rather shorter shopping trips compared to those visiting from out of town. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
The MyPark app can be downloaded from the Android or iOS app stores, and guests can register and tell the app when and where they would like to park. They will then choose the section they want, though the best spot is selected by default, and confirm their reservation.
Once users arrive at their reserved space, they can simply tap “Let Me In” on their device and the MyPark reservation space will lower to give them access.
“Simon Properties’ partnership with MyPark has proven to be successful, and we are excited to offer MyPark to our customers in three of our busiest Florida locations,” said Don Dooley, area general manager for Orlando Premium Outlets. “MyPark’s innovative technology has not only benefitted our customers in the past, but it’s been great for retailers as well and we are confident that it will continue to be a positive experience for all parties involved.”
