    Good Morning, Are we able to park at a resort we are not staying at to eat at their quick service restaurant? Thank you! Brandi

    Hiya Brandi - welcome to planDisney!

    I'm glad that you stopped by to ask about this situation! I'm actually answering your question from a plane that is, sadly, taking me back home after a wonderful Disney vacation. During my trip, I had some experiences with Resort dining and am happy to fill you in on what's going on right now.

    Currently, parking at Disney Resort hotels is limited to registered overnight Guests staying at the Resort, Guests with confirmed dining reservations at Table Service locations, and Guests with confirmed recreation reservations (e.g., a manicure or massage appointment at Disney's Grand Floridian Spa).

    On my previous trip a couple of months ago, Security Cast Members at Resort entrances were allowing Guests with active Mobile Food & Beverage Orders to enter and park at the Resort to pick up their orders from Quick Service dining locations. During my trip this week I was told by Cast Members at two different Resorts that this is not currently permitted.

    So, Brandi, the best way to experience the many wonderful Quick Service dining locations at Disney Resort hotels would be to take complimentary Disney transportation (e.g., bus, water), or a Minnie Van (for an additional fee via the Lyft app) from a Theme Park or Disney Springs to the Resort you wish to visit. Policies do change from time to time, but this is the best advice I can provide to you right now given my recent experiences!

    Speaking of Quick Service, have you tried Primo Piatto at Disney's Riviera Resort? I've loved everything I've tried on the menu, and getting there is as easy as a quick ride on the Disney Skyliner from the EPCOT International Gateway or Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    I hope this information is helpful, Brandi - stop by any time with more questions!
