Arrive early and parking is expensive. If you use spothero.com for discounted parking and use their code "z0no8b" to get $5 off. It will help a lot. You can find and book a parking spot from your desktop or mobile device, get up to 50% off and some parking spots you can use your mobile phone to park instead of printing out the reservation.
