    how do we get cheaper parking passes closer to the front gates of parks

    Hi Al!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There are two price levels for parking at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks (a third if you have an oversized vehicle). However, the "preferred" parking spots, which are located closest to the entrance are the more expensive option. See pricing from the Walt Disney World website:

    Guests pay one fee for a parking pass good all day at all 4 theme parks—Magic Kingdom park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. Our special preferred parking lots are located conveniently close to the theme park entrances. All parking fees include applicable sales tax.

    Preferred parking: car or motorcycle – $45 per day
    Standard parking: car or motorcycle – $22 per day

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort and Annual Passholders do not have to pay for parking at the theme parks. Additionally, there are designated disability spots located near the entrance at standard parking rates.

    I am not aware of any current way to get passes close to the front that are cheaper than the listed price. I would be hesitant to purchase anything from anyone without verifying it first with Disney. If you would like to reach out to Guest Services, you can call (407) 824-2222.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan.
