Valet Parking

Through a special arrangement with the San Diego Zoo, all ticket holders for evening performances can purchase valet parking in the Zoo’s parking structure on Old Globe Way. We also provide shuttle service between the valet drop-off and Copley Plaza for those who need additional assistance.

You can guarantee your space at the discounted rate of $17 if you purchase at least 48 hours before your performance, or you may drive up and purchase valet for $21 the night of your performance (subject to availability).

The valet opens two hours before evening showtimes and is open until 30 minutes after the evening’s final performance (or Post-Show Forum) concludes.

To pre-purchase valet parking, contact our Ticket Services Department at (619) 234-5623, then press 1. The ticket office is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 12:00 noon until the last performance time.

Your parking voucher will be mailed. Simply present the voucher when dropping off your car.


When you turn from Park Boulevard onto Village Place to enter Balboa Park, continue going forward and follow the road past Spanish Village. Curve left and take an immediate right on Old Globe Way. Continue past the botanical building (on the left) and follow the fork in the road to the right. You’ll see “San Diego Zoo Employees Only” on your right side. Drop your car here and go up the hill by foot or via our tram to The Old Globe.




VIP Donor Valet

VIP valet parking steps from the theatre entrance is available to major donors at the Director Circle level and higher. Click here for more information on donor benefits and how to support the theatre.

Valet parking for the parking structure is only available for evening performances. Parking is limited, subject to availability, and must be purchased in advance from the Old Globe Box Office. No same-day reservations will be taken. The Old Globe sells the valet service as a convenience to its guests, but neither the valet service nor the San Diego Zoo’s parking structure is owned or operated by The Old Globe. The Old Globe does not earn income from the parking fee and does not assume liability related to the use of the parking structure or valet service. There are no refunds. Available only in conjunction with ticket for the same evening’s performance.
