    If I am arriving on a Thursday but cannot check into my hotel yet do I still get free parking at the theme parks? Was looking to go to a park in the morning while waiting to check in.

    Hi Christian! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! Next week you will be immersed in magic at Walt Disney World Resort. There is so much to celebrate with the return of Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park. This fan-favorite nighttime spectacular now features projections down Main Street U.S.A.

    I have great news to share with you. All Disney Resort Collection hotel benefits are available to you on check-in and check-out days of your stay. So yes, that does include standard parking at the theme parks. It also includes your 30-minute Early Theme Park Entry to all our four theme parks. This gives you access to those most popular attractions before the parks officially open. I suggest you have your proof of your reservation handy for the gate attendant in case of any glitches. My parking planDisney protip is to utilize the Car Locator in the My Disney Experience Mobile App and enable notifications. At the end of the day, the app will remind you where you are parked.

    Your visit is in time to catch the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Stop by the many Global Marketplaces for international delights. I really enjoyed the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sticky Wings from Brew-Wing Lab at the Odyssey. For a sweet treat, I enjoyed the simplicity of the Apple Strudel from the German booth.

    Keeping it Magical,
