    I'll be arriving early evening and wonder if I can drive from my resort (OKW) to the Poly to grab a Dole Whip and watch the MK fireworks from the beach. Are there still restrictions on parking without a dining reservation?

    Hey there, Julie! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question.

    In just a couple of months, you'll be arriving at the tranquil, palm tree-lined Disney's Old Key West Resort, ready to begin your magical springtime adventure! With the relaxed island vibe and being just steps from the fantastic Sandcastle Pool and the fan-favorite Olivia's Cafe, this is the PERFECT spring break setting. I am so excited for you! Every time I go to Walt Disney World Resort, a visit to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for a DOLE Whip at Pineapple Lanai and my absolute favorite view of Cinderella Castle is a MUST. The fact that this is your first order of Disney business when you arrive just proves that you are someone after my own heart, and I am honored to answer your question!

    Unfortunately, at this time, day Guests without Resort or dining reservations are unable to park at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. However, I do have a solution for you, my fellow DOLE Whip-loving friend! I'd suggest parking at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) and taking the very short walk over to the Polynesian. As a Guest staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort, parking is complimentary! Free parking, DOLE Whip AND watching Disney Enchantment from the Polynesian's beach?! Now, THAT sounds like a magical start to the most memorable vacation!

    Julie, since we seem to have similar Disney interests, while you're enjoying the island life at Old Key West, I suggest renting bikes from Hank's Rent 'N Return and cruising the grounds of the beautiful Resort. This is one of my favorite Disney activities, and I hope that you love it, too!

    Julie, I am wishing you the most pixie-dusted and DOLE Whip-filled upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions,

    I hope to see ya real soon,
