Mom And Daughter Inside Disney hotel

    Pamela from CT Asked

    We are booked in a DVC room at Animal Kingdom Lodge in December. We have always used Disney transportation but are thinking of renting a car for the first time. Is parking free at the parks for resort guests? Or only at the resort?

    Hi Pamela,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Whether you are staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House or Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, you are in for a wonderful vacation. These resorts are beautiful, and being able to see exotic animals outside of nearly every window is unique and amazing.

    My family often rents a car when we visit Walt Disney World. I have good news for you - you will be able to park for free both at your resort and at the Disney theme parks. You may be issued a parking pass to display on your dashboard that indicates that you are a resort guest, or you may be asked to scan your MagicBand as you drive into the parking lot to prove that you are a resort guest. Being able to park for free at the Disney theme parks is a great benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel!

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Pamela. Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
