    we are annual pass holders. we are staying off property this fall and I wanted to know about resort parking. Can we park at the Boardwalk to enjoy the bakery and atmosphere without having a reservation at one of the restaurants? Thanks in advance! :)

    Hi, Mary!

    I am so happy to hear you have an Annual Pass. With the discounts, perks, and of course the theme park admissions, an Annual Pass is a Disney Fan's best friend!

    Parking at the BoardWalk is very limited. Most times, parking will be reserved for guests staying at that resort and guests with dining reservations, but you are welcome to approach the parking area and inquire with security about your options at that time. If parking is unavailable, you can either valet park (parking fees apply), park across the way at Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf (about a 10 minute walk to the BoardWalk area), or park at a theme park and take a bus. If you are at Epcot that day, you can exit at the International Gateway and you are just a few minute walk to the entire BoardWalk area. 

    I really enjoy strolling the BoardWalk in the evenings. It is fun to catch the fireworks from Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, and a stop at Beaches and Cream for a sweet treat is always on my family's agenda!

    Wishing you a magical visit to Disney's BoardWalk!
