    When going to Disney World, if I rent a car and I park in the parking lot of my Disney World Resort hotel, then I want to visit a different Disney World Resort hotel just to explore am I allowed to park in the hotel I want to explore?

    Hi Jeffrey!
    Welcome back to planDisney.

    Thank you for sending in this question about parking and I'm happy to unravel all the details for you.

    Yes, you are permitted to park at any Disney Resort hotel if you are simply visiting for dining, or shopping or to explore around the resort.  Parking is complimentary for all guests, but at busy times priority will be given to those hotel guests with a room reservation.  Usually, this doesn't present a problem.

    As you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, self-parking is included at your hotel, and parking at all four theme parks is also complimentary for Disney Resort hotel guests. 

    In addition to complimentary parking at the parks and Disney Resort hotels, the water parks (Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach) provide free parking for all guests.  Disney Springs has substantial free parking for every guest, and no admission ticket is needed to enjoy all the shopping, dining and entertainment on offer there.

    I highly recommend using the Car Locator feature on your My Disney Experience app when parking at the vast parking lots at all theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs or EPSN Wide World of Sports Complex.  It's so easy to forget where our car is parked!

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World!  Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on events that may be happening during your stay.
