    If we drive a rental car to Art of Animation before check in, where we're staying, can we park our car and go to the parks? And can we leave it parked there the whole 4 days we are there for? And is there a fee? Thank you!

    Hi Aaron!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Yes, you will be pleased to know that as you have a reservation at Disney's Art of Animation Resort you absolutely can park your rental car there, and go to enjoy your day at the parks.  Even if you are too early for your resort check-in, I would recommend that you tell the front desk that you have parked your car there - you never know, you might be lucky with an early check-in - although the official time is 3.00pm.   You could also check-in online.  There is now an overnight self-parking charge for registered Guests at Walt Disney World Resort hotels, you can see the fee for Disney Value Resorts here, which will be applied to your hotel folio on check-out.  You may leave your car there for the duration of your stay.

    Enjoy using the Disney Bus Transportation to take you to whichever parks you wish, in comfortable, air-conditioned style. Let someone else do all the driving for you!  This is a complimentary service throughout the whole of the Walt Disney World Resort, which can take you to any theme park and Disney Springs from your resort hotel.  

    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.
