    We are staying at a DVC villa at AKL Kidani Village. If we check in but gontona park before our room is assigned will we still have free parking at Magic Kingdom if we drive our car? How does this work?

    Hey, Julie. Thanks so much for coming to the Disney Parks Moms Panel for your vacation planning questions.

    Because you are a guest at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, there is no charge for your parking at any of the Wallt Disney World theme parks. It doesn't matter if your room is ready. Your free parking begins the day you check in and extends through the day you check out.

    The information regarding your check-in date will be on your MagicBands. When you get to the parking attendant, you just have to show your MagicBand, which they will scan in. That will tell them that you are a resort guest as of that day, and there won't be any charge for parking.

    Alternatively, you can park your vehicle at your resort and use Disney Resort Transportation. You can hop on the bus to the Magic Kingdom right there from from your resort.

    Have a great stay!
