    We are Disney vacation club members and our next trip staying at shades of green can we get free parking at the parks?

    Welcome Home Jennifer!

    A Disney Vacation Club Member who is staying at Shades of Green sounds like someone who is soaking up every last bit of Disney magic that they can! You are my kind of Disney gal!

    The quick answer to your question is that unfortunately, your Disney Vacation Club Membership does not give you complimentary theme park parking. Complimentary theme park parking is currently included with a stay within the Disney Resort Collection, and this is what you may be used to receiving. It is a Disney Resort Hotel benefit, not a Disney Vacation Club Member Benefit.

    While Shades of Green is within the boundaries of the Walt Disney World Resort, it is not part of the Disney Resort Collection, and so it does not receive complimentary theme park parking. For this visit, you would be responsible for any parking fees. Shades of Green does have its own bus transportation to the parks if you would like to avoid the theme park parking fees!

    Disney Vacation Club Membership does have some parking benefits when it comes to the overnight parking fee at resort hotels. Members do not pay the nightly overnight fee to park their vehicle for any stay booked with Vacation Points. Additionally, cash stays in a Disney Deluxe Villa also receive this perk. However, cash bookings in rooms that are not villas do not receive this benefit and you should expect to pay any overnight parking fees.

    I hope this helps explain where your Disney Vacation Club Member Benefits apply. Please accept my gratitude for your family’s service as well, and I hope that you enjoy a restful and well deserved vacation.
