    We are driving and staying in Windsor Hills the week of 12/8/23 to 12/15/23 will parking at the parks be a problem and if so are there any alternatives?

    Hi Shelley and welcome to planDisney!

    Christmastime is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World!  I love seeing all of the festive decorations at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.  Each Disney Resort hotel has their own beautifully decorated trees in the lobby and we visit our favorite ones each year.  Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Wilderness Lodge are tied for first for my favorite tree!  Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of my favorite special events at Magic Kingdom Park.  Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than walking down Main Street U.S.A. under the holiday garland and wreaths with a view of Cinderella Castle in the distance.

    Parking at the theme parks is very simple!  Each theme park has their own parking lot, so there shouldn't be any issues for you to park when you are visiting.  There is a parking fee since you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, but if you are planning on park hopping on the same day, you will only need to pay for parking once per day.  If you decide you do not want to park yourselves, you can use rideshare and be dropped off instead.  There are designated zones for drop off and pick up, so that is also an option.  

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
