Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- On the day you check out from a resort can you still leave your car for the day for free and use the Disney transportation that day or do you need to move your car after you check out and pay for parking that day?

- Hi, Jason!
Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question about parking at Walt Disney World Resort. It looks like you'll be arriving at "The Most Magical Place on Earth" in just one more day! I hope you'll be able to get some sleep tonight!
As a Guest of an on-property Disney Resort hotel, upon check-in you will receive a Resort Parking Permit (a white paper pass with the name of your resort, your reservation number, and your dates of stay pre-printed on it) which entitles you to complimentary self-parking at your Disney Resort hotel as well as in the four Theme Park parking lots. You will want to display your Resort Parking Permit on the dashboard of your vehicle throughout your stay. To access your Disney Resort hotel via the security entrance gate, just tap your MagicBand or swipe your Key to the World card (room key).
You will have access to the amenities offered at your Disney Resort hotel (including the pool and parking lot) up until midnight of your check-out day. You can absolutely leave your car at your Disney Resort hotel parking lot and use Disney transportation (buses, monorail and boats) on the last day of your visit. Alternatively, you can use your own car and park in one of the Theme Park parking lots if you plan to tour a park on your last day. When you pass through the auto toll plaza just before the Theme Park parking lot, simply present your MagicBand or Key to the World card to the Cast Member attendant.
Enjoy your "Disney Time," Jason! Have a magical visit!
