    Friends of ours are borrowing DVC points. Are they entitled to complementary parking at Bay Lake as well as the theme parks?

    Hey there, hi there, Janell! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! Thanks for stopping by with such a great question.

    Before I became a Disney Vacation Club Member, I never would have been able to bring family and friends along on my family's magical adventures or even think about treating them to a stay at a fabulous Disney Resort. But like you, I was able to gift a friend a stay at my Home Resort, Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and it was the most wonderful feeling to see them loving it and living it up in the magic. Speaking of magic, I think we should call you Genie, since it sounds as if your friends ain’t never had a friend like you! Now, let’s make sure their vacation wishes are granted.

    I think you will be happy to hear that yes, your friends will absolutely be able to take advantage of your DVC perk of complimentary overnight self-parking at Bay Lake Tower and complimentary standard parking at the theme parks. If a Guest is staying at a DVC Resort on Vacation Points, they are eligible for the parking benefit, and all registered Guests of a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or DVC Resort receive complimentary standard theme park parking. No need to even rub Genie's lamp!

    Just be sure that your friends' names are listed on the Resort reservation. When they arrive at the security hut, they will just let the Cast Member know that they are checking in and provide them with their names and a photo ID. Then, they will be welcomed home to a whole new world - the magic of DVC.

    I hope this was helpful, Genie ... I mean, Janell! Please stop by any time with any planning or DVC questions you may have. You ain't never had a friend like planDisney!

    Punch and Pizzazz,
