    If we go to Epcot first before checking into the Sports hotel would we have to pay for parking or would our wristbands show that we are a staying at a resort and the parking would be free?

    Hi Michelle,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad you stopped by with your question. 

    You are my kind of planner! I love getting a jump start on the magic by hitting the parks when we first arrive too. As a Guest staying at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort,  you should not be charged for standard parking at the theme parks. The Cast Member at the entrance of Epcot will be able to scan your MagicBand to see you are a registered Guest staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Be sure to use online check-in prior to your arrival so that your arrival process goes smoothly. After using online check-in, I've often visited the theme parks prior to arrival at my Disney Resort hotel and have never been charged for standard parking.  Once you are finished at the park, you can simply head straight to your room without having to stop by the front desk of your resort.  

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Michelle. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Happy Planning,
