    Hello, We will be visiting the magic kingdom on 6th December, is there a way I can book the preferred parking in advance?

    Hi, Nitin!

    Preferred Parking at the Walt Disney World theme parks will allow you to park closer to the main gate of each theme park. There is a fee that you will pay each day upon entering the parking lot in addition to the cost of Standard Parking. Parking is paid just one time a day, so keep your receipt for mid-day breaks or Park Hopping. 

    You do not need to reserve your parking ahead of time. When approaching the parking area, simply tell the friendly Cast Member you would like to purchase Preferred Parking. You will pay at that time, then will be directed to the Preferred Parking area. 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, Standard Parking at the theme parks is complimentary. If you decide to use Preferred Parking you will pay the upgrade cost only, so let the Cast Member know you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel and show your MagicBand for identification. 

    Regardless of where you park, make sure to jot down your parking location with section and row number. After a long day in the park, you do not want to forget where you parked (yes, I am speaking from experience and it is not fun to wander around having to find a rental car that looks like every other rental car!)

    Wishing you a magical visit and lots of close parking spots!
