    If I am staying on property at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is parking free at the hotel and at the theme parks? Seems to be conflicting information out there.

    Hi, Joshua!

    There are many perks of being a guest of a Disney Resort hotel. One of the best is the complimentary parking at your hotel AND at the Disney theme parks. You will be directed to the guest parking when arriving at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. When visiting the theme parks, simply show your MagicBand to the cast member at the parking entrance. Your band will be scanned and you can park for no charge in the standard parking area (additional cost if you choose the preferred parking).

    Other perks of staying at a Disney resort hotel:  complimentary MagicBands, booking FastPass+ selections 60 days before arrival, Extra Magic Hours, charging privileges to your room (if you put a credit card on file), and complimentary transportation and parking all around Disney property.

    Have a great stay at the beautiful Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you haven't booked your dining yet, two of my favorite Disney restaurants are located here: Boma and Jiko. Both have amazing dishes with just a touch of African flare to make everything tasty and unique. Enjoy!
