    As a dvc member already at the resort, how do I upgrade to preferred parking at the parks?

    Hiya, David!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney! Oh boy, how exciting that you are enjoying a Walt Disney World Resort vacation and immersing yourself in the magic.  As a Disney Vacation Club Member for the last 22 years, we have loved the affordable family vacations Membership has provided us year after year.   On top of that, the Member Extras and benefits add even more pixie dust to our pockets!  

    David, if you are a Disney Vacation Club Member staying at one of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts using your Vacation Points, I am excited to share that you get to enjoy complimentary, overnight self-parking at your Resort.  Additionally, if you are staying as a registered Guest of a Disney Resort Hotel, your theme park parking is complimentary.  If you would like to upgrade to Preferred Parking, you would pay the difference between the included Standard Parking and Preferred Parking, which is currently between $20-$25 per day (subject to change.)  You would need to provide proof that you are a registered Guest of a Disney Resort Hotel when you approach the parking till, and then pay the upgraded price for preferred parking.

    If you want to avoid parking fees and get dropped off right at the front, you can check out the Disney Minnie Van service, powered by Lyft, which will get you to the theme parks quicker than the complimentary transportation. But it also drops you closer to the entrance than the parking lot.  Regular Lyft is also an option as well, but our family does love the thematic Minnie Van experience with knowledgeable Cast Members who add a bit of magic to our day.

    I hope this helps you, David! If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see us and we will be so happy to help you.

    See ya real soon!
