    Sydney from OH Asked

    Hello! We're disembarking the Disney Dream at Port Canaveral, then going straight to Animal Kingdom. We are staying on property at Art of Animation that evening. Can I still get free parking since I'm a resort guest? Thank you!

    Hi Sydney, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question. 

    Although I’m always sad when it comes time to disembark after an unforgettable Disney Cruise Line vacation, it’s always much easier to drive away from Port Canaveral when I know that I’m heading to Walt Disney World Resort for some more Disney fun! 

    If you plan to head straight to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park after you disembark and you have MagicBands from a previous visit to Walt Disney World Resort, just make sure that it’s active and head straight to the Theme Park. When the Cast Member at the entrance plaza scans your MagicBand, your reservation that night at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort should pop up. This should allow you to have complimentary standard self-parking for the day. 

    If you don’t have a MagicBand or if, like me, you prefer being prepared in case things don’t work as seamlessly as they should, have a copy of your confirmation number handy (or, ideally, a copy of your reservation confirmation) to show the Cast Member upon arrival. 

    I hope that my answer helps you plan your magical land and sea Disney Parks vacation! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
