    DVC members and other resort guests had received free theme park parking. Is this free service gone?

    Welcome Home, Lisa!

    I’m so glad you found your fellow Disney Vacation Club Members here on planDisney. We’ve been Members for more than 12 years and we’ve never looked back!

    The parking situation can be a little confusing, but you’ll be happy to know the parking benefits have not changed! Disney Vacation Club Members receive complimentary overnight parking at their resort when staying at any Walt Disney World Resort using their Membership. This would include a stay in a villa booked with Vacation Points or any standard room booked with Reservation Points. Members also receive complimentary overnight parking when staying in Deluxe Villa Accommodations when paying cash. Standard Disney Resort Collection Hotel stays (non-villa) paying cash are still subject to the overnight Guest parking fee.

    When it comes to parking at the theme parks, there are slightly different rules. All Guests of Disney Resort Collection Hotels receive complimentary theme park parking. So if you are staying on property, either with your Membership or with cash, you do receive theme park parking!

    However, being a Disney Vacation Club Member itself does not include complimentary theme park parking at all times. So if you are just stopping by for the day, or staying off-site on a trip, you should plan to pay for theme park parking. Also important to note that Walt Disney World Annual Passholders receive included theme park parking at all times, so if you have ever been a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, you would have received free theme park parking during those visits.

    I hope this information helps explain the parking rules, Lisa. Please let me know if you have any additional questions about your Membership, I always love talking DVC!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
