    I have a dinner reservation at Steakhouse 71 at the Contemporary at 7:30 PM. Will they allow me to park in their lot at 1:00 PM? I also have the Pixie Dust Annual Pass, if that helps.

    Hi there, Maureen! Welcome back to planDisney! We're so glad you are here!

    Well, color me jealous, Maureen! I have been dying to visit Steakhouse 71 ever since it was announced, but haven't yet had the opportunity to dine there. Doesn't it look incredible? I mean, have you SEEN the Steakhouse 71 Chocolate Cake? I would go there just for that, let alone all the other delicious-looking menu items! You must be so excited about your reservation, which will be here before you know it!

    So, let's talk about parking. While complimentary parking is available at the Disney Resorts Collection hotels for those Guests with Advanced Dining Reservations, the maximum time allowed to park is three hours. So, you wouldn't be able to park there starting at 1 p.m. for your reservation at 7:30 p.m.

    While this may not be the news you were hoping to hear, I do have a suggestion that I think will work well for you! Since you are a Disney Pixie Dust Passholder, you get to enjoy FREE standard parking at the theme parks. So, you can head over to Magic Kingdom Park to park for free and then utilize the Resort Monorail to get to your reservation at Disney's Contemporary Resort. In my opinion, The Walt Disney World Monorail is an attraction in its own right, so why not enjoy a ride on the Highway in the Sky on your way to enjoy your fabulous meal? I promise the views are well worth the journey!

    Maureen, I do hope I have been helpful to you today! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. In the meantime, I will be here living vicariously through you as you enjoy your fabulous meal at Steakhouse 71!

    Bon Appétit
