    I keep seeing posts saying parking at theme parks is free if you show your WDW resort pass. But I've been told by friends and a AAA agent that the resort pass gets you free parking at RESORT lots, not the theme park lots. Clarify please? (th.park vs. resor

    Hi Beth,

    I think you have been misled.  The posts that you have seen are giving the correct information.  If you have a "Key To The World" card or an Annual Pass, all you will need to do is show it to the cast member who is collecting parking fees at the main entrance to each Theme Park in order to be allowed right through without any charges to you.  There are no fees associated with parking at the WDW Resorts but you must show your "Key To The World" card to the security guard who will then verify that you are staying at that resort or you will receive a complimentary 3 hour parking pass that you will need to place on your dashboard of the car if you are just a visitor going to eat at one of the wonderful restaurants located at a WDW Resort.  So to sum it up again....Annual Passholders and WDW Resort guests will receive complimentary parking at the Theme Parks (these are one of the great perks to staying at a WDW Resort and being an Annual Passholder member!) and the only parking costs at the WDW Resorts is if you choose to use Valet Parking.  Another commonly asked question we receive from guests is Downtown Disney and there is no charge to park at Downtown Disney just in case you were wondering about that too.  I hope this clarifies things a bit for you.  Have a magical day!

    Best wishes,
