    My family and I have reservations at Ohana at the Polynesian for 11 people. After breakfast, 9 of us will be going to Epcot, the other 2 are leaving Disney property. Will we have to pay for parking? Can we leave our cars at the resort while in Epcot?

    Aloha, Chris! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited for you to visit 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort! It's one of my very favorite breakfast experiences at Walt Disney World. I could munch on that sweet breakfast bread all day long if they'd let me (so far, they haven't let me)!

    When you have dining reservations at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you do receive complimentary parking during your meal. You'll just tell the security Cast Member at the entrance that you have a reservation, and they'll give you a parking pass that will be good for a few hours. They may also verify your reservation, so be sure your other party knows which name it's under. Once you've finished your meal, you'll have a little time to check out the Resort hotel if you like, but you will be expected to move your car before heading over to EPCOT.

    If the monorail line to EPCOT has reopened by the time of your visit, you can park in the Transportation and Ticket Center lot and take the monorail over, but you might be better off just driving there so you can hop in your car when you're ready to call it a day. Unless you're staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will need to pay for daily parking in the theme park lots (although you only pay once, even if you visit multiple parks in a single day).

    Chris, be sure to save some room after breakfast to sample a bite or two at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival! I know, I know, it's hard not to fill up on the amazing food at 'Ohana, but you really don't want to miss some of the special wares on offer during my favorite time of year at EPCOT. No amount of 'Ohana breakfast bread can keep me from the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup!

    I hope this helps you have a delicious time at the Walt Disney World Resort, Chris. Mahalo for stopping by to see us, and be sure to come back if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
