    We will be heading to the parks before resort check in on our first day. Will we still be able to get the benefit of free parking at the parks? How do we let the parking cast member know? thanks!

    Vroom, vroom, Lisa! Sounds like you’re headed to the parks with your family faster than Lightning McQueen! Parking is so very easy when you are a guest at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, so I’ll tell you how to get the best price and speed so you can zoom into the parks! 

    Parking is available at all four theme parks as well as Disney Springs, but did you know that you will receive free parking at your Resort, on your check-in day, even before your room is available? If you drove straight to a park, such as Disney’s Hollywood Studios, before your Hotel, you wouldn’t yet have proof of your check in. You would still have to pay the $20/day Standard car parking price, and then bring the receipt back to your Resort Front Desk for reimbursement. However, once you pay for parking for the day, you may park at any of the other theme parks. 

    If you want to avoid that inconvenience, you can always drive straight to your Resort Hotel, and do the following: One adult in your party can drop your luggage with Bell Services while the other checks in with the Front Desk. Then, you’ll be given a parking pass that provides complimentary parking not only at your resort, but at the parks for the length of your stay. You can drive to the parks with that pass, or take the on-site transportation such as watercraft, monorail, or bus. I love Disney transportation because it’s always available when the parks are open, and using the My Disney Experience Mobile App makes it easy to get spot-on directions to any location on the Resort.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation, and let me know if Mater and I can make it a little more magical! ~ Lindsey P.
