    Is it free to park at Disney Springs if we are staying off property, and take a shuttle to the parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Judy! 

    You've come to the right place for help navigating your way around the "World!" I also hope you are getting excited for your December vacation, it's fast approaching - though I know it still seems forever away at the same time. 

    I'm very glad you asked this questions! It's one I really like to help clarify for our guests. Disney Springs does not offer transportation to the theme parks, only to Walt Disney World® Resort hotels and to serve as a transfer point for on-propery guests headed to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. Additionally, because Disney Springs' hours are from 10:00am-midnight, buses to/from the Resort hotels generally do not begin arriving until about 9:30am.

    If at any point in your vacation you wish to travel from a theme park to Disney Springs, that transportation option is available beginning at 4:00pm each day - again, it's still only one-way. For more information on Disney Springs transportation, select the highlighted link. 

    Parking at Disney Springs is complementary for all guests, all the time! So you're all set for the day you plan on visiting this shopping, dining, and entertainment mecca. I highly suggest using the Orange Garage - it's in a great location and seems to not get as crowded as the Lime Garage. 

    Judy, make sure to check with your hotel, many "Good Neighbor" hotels offer transportation to Walt Disney World's Transportation & Ticket Center near Magic Kingdom. Guests are then able to transfer to buses heading to all Walt Disney World theme parks. 

    I hope this helps as you plan your transportation. Please let me know if you should have any additional questions, you can reach out to me directly.
