    Hi there, We are doing a two day/one night visit in May. My question is, do we have to pay to park on the first day at Magic Kingdom or would we be considered resort guests? Thsnks

    Hi Anna,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    You are considered a Disney resort guest all of the days that you will be staying at your Walt Disney World resort, including your check in and check out days. So yes, you will be able to park for free at the Disney theme parks on both your check in and check out days. I suggest checking into your resort first before heading to a theme park as the resort will usually give you a parking pass to put on your car dashboard indicating that you are a resort guest. Showing this to the cast members at the parking booths on your way into the theme parks is a quick and easy way for them to see that you are a Disney resort guest. If you do not check into your resort first, they will also likely be able to read this information from your MagicBand; however, if you can check in first to be sure that everything is active and ready, I think that is a good idea.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Anna! Have a wonderful time planning your Disney vacation, and please let us know if you have any further questions.
