Parking around Orlando for Universal

We are staying on site at Universal. I am aware of the parking fees at the resort. We are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel. Our current plan is to drive from Michigan to Florida. We aren’t going until next year so hopefully we can get a good price on a flight.
In case we drive I was wondering if anyone has used the shuttled airport lots around Orlando for parking instead of paying the $28 fee per night. We can park there and Uber to the resort for cheaper than paying the parking fee.
Does anyone have any other suggestions about discounted/cheap parking?
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
