    My family and I are staying at a Disney World hotel (deluxe resort) for one night. We don’t have Magic Bands or annual passes. What proof do we need to get complimentary theme park parking?And is this included on the day of check in & check out?

    Hello there, Laura!

    Your family is so lucky to stay at a Walt Disney World Deluxe Resort! From the moment the Cast Members say “Welcome Home” when you arrive, you know that your vacation is just getting started. 

    I’m not sure which Resort you’ll be staying at, but I’ve been amazed by how many dining options at the Resorts offer Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, where you can take a late-night snack back to your room or to a scenic view around the Resort. 

    Laura, to answer your question, that is totally fine that you don’t have a Disney band or annual pass. Before you arrive, I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. When you open the app, select the three horizontal bars in the bottom right corner of the screen and select “Resort Hotel.” Your reservation should appear, but if not, don’t worry because you can enter your reservation confirmation code in manually. 

    When you arrive at the Resort, you’ll likely be greeted at the gate, where they’ll ask you for the last name on your reservation. Sometimes I pull up the reservation details on my mobile app just in case they need to double-check them. I have some good news for you- overnight self-parking is complimentary to Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels at Walt Disney World Resort during your stay. 

    May the magic be with you!
