    Hi We're DVC members, but we're coming in for a short trip staying with family. As DVC members not using our points do we still get free parking to Theme parks?

    Hi there, John!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm here to help!

    I'm so glad to hear that you're getting away from the cold and snow for a quick trip to Walt Disney World Resort even if it is only for a few days. I would definitely take a short trip over no trip at all!
    As a Disney Vacation Club Member, I'm sure you're used to all of the perks that are included with your membership, and free parking at the Walt Disney World Resort hotels is definitely one of those perks. Unfortunately, free parking at the theme parks is only a member benefit when using your points for your resort reservation. If you happen to be an Annual Passholder, then you do get free theme park parking included with your pass. Otherwise, you will be required to pay for theme park parking. But don't forget to take advantage of your other member benefits like dining and shopping discounts and my personal favorite, the Member Lounge at Epcot. Hopefully some of these things will make up for that extra parking cost!
    I sure hope this helps to answer your question and please let us know if we can help with anything else. That's what we are here to do. Have a magical trip!
