    I am afraid I know the answer but have to ask...I am staying at the Waldorf Astoria since guests there are now eligible for 60 day FP+ and Early Magic Hours. But they charge $45 per day for parking. Will I also have to pay for parking at the parks?

    Greetings Thomas,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You’ve picked an excellent hotel! Some of our good friends recently stayed there with family, and they had nothing but praise for the Resort! As an affiliate hotel of Walt Disney World Resort, you get to enjoy the benefits of staying at a Resort hotel combined with the impeccable sophistication of the Waldorf brand.

    As a Waldorf Astoria Guest, you get access to FastPass+ planning 60 days ahead of time, get to enjoy Extra Magic Hours, and receive complimentary transportation (via luxury motor coach) to and from the Theme Parks and Disney Springs. Unfortunately, complimentary parking at the parks does not come with your room.

    If you prefer not to use the shuttle or pay for Theme Park parking, consider using a Minnie Van. You can hail a polka-dotted beauty via the Lyft app. A friendly Cast Member will whisk you to wherever you desire on Walt Disney World Resort property. We love the Minnie Vans so much that now we find an excuse to use them almost every trip!

    Thomas, when you are at your hotel, take advantage of the gorgeous resort pools. The lazy river was our friends’ favorite! Also, there is a Disney sundries store on-site, and the Concierge is more than willing to help with purchasing Theme Park and special event tickets.

    If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
