If you think that Disney theme parks are just money-grubbing enterprises, you haven't spent enough time visiting a Universal venture. Not only will they upsell you "preferred parking", they'll upsell you more expensive park tickets that let you bypass lines for rides. We didn't bother actually going in the park; the CityWalk outside is commercial enough. There was a street performer who put out "express lanes" in the form of hats before he started, constantly talked about getting donations throughout ($5-10 per family is a great value!), and only did like three or four tricks. (True, they weren't easy.) If even one person gives $10, that's a pretty good wage for his 20 minutes of work, I'd say. Anyway... in case you still don't believe that it's one giant commercial, just take a look at the picture of the day.
