    We are checking in at the CBR 12/14 but would like to go to Epcot first that morning. Will we have to pay for parking? Thanks!

    Hi Stacy,

    Congratulations on your upcoming vacation, you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the most magical and wonderful time of the year in my opinion. Not only are the theme parks decorated for Christmas, but the Resort hotels put on their holiday finest as well.

    Good news!  As a Guest staying at a Disney Resort hotel, parking at the theme parks is complimentary.  Make sure you pack your MagicBands to show to the Cast Member attendant at the entrance for Epcot parking.  It is also a good idea to do log-in to your My Disney Experience account and complete your online check-in prior to your arrival.

    Most Disney Resort hotels now offer the service of "Direct-To-Room Check-In" which can simplify your check-in further. Direct-To-Room Check-In notifies you when your room is ready and allows you to go straight to your room and bypass the front desk. In order to set up the Direct-To-Room Check-In you will need to complete your online registration process in your My Disney Experience account.  You will be asked to provide your estimated time of arrival and departure, valid credit card number, set up a PIN, and provide a method of communication (email or text).  I have used Direct-To-Room Check-In service at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and found the service to be quite smooth and a nice time-saver.

    Have a magical vacation Stacy!  Please let us know if we can answer any further Disney vacation planning questions, we are always happy to help.
