    Hi, due to some changes I have to stay offsite. For driving into Disney, are there any free parking lots available that have bus access? I have hoppers, so am eligible to take bus transport from park to park.


    Complimentary parking at Walt Disney World theme parks is available to guests staying at WDW Resort hotel. Since you are staying off property, you will need to pay a daily parking fee. The good news is that you only pay one time per day, so keep your receipt if you hop parks anytime during your magical day. 

    There is no charge to park at Disney Springs or the water parks if you plan to visit those locations. Please note that direct bus service to the theme parks is not always available from these locations. Parking in resort hotels' parking areas are reserved for registered hotel guests and guests with dining reservations at that location. 

    Once you are parked at one of the theme parks, please pay attention to your lot name and aisle number. These parking lots are huge. Speaking from experience, it is no fun to forget where you parked! You might even want to snap a picture on your phone so you can easily refer back to that pic at the end of the day. 

    Wishing you safe travels to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
