    I'm considering staying at a Disney Springs Hotel. I know we pay parking at the hotel, but what about the theme parks? Also, what is the advanced dining reservation time for these hotels?

    Hi Corrine, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian!

    I’ve stayed in several of the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels and, though I’ll admit that I missed a bit of the Disney Magic, they were a wonderful combination of budget and comfort. When you do choose to visit a Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park, you will need to pay for Parking as complimentary self-parking isn’t one of the perks offered for Guests staying in those hotels. The good news, however, is that you’ll be able to come and go as you please throughout your Disney day, as you should only need to pay for parking once per day.

    As for making your Disney dining reservations, I’m happy to say that your reservation window will open up at the 180 day mark, much like Guests who’ve chosen to stay in a Disney Resort Hotel. The biggest difference is that you’ll need to make your reservations one by one as your reservation window opens for each individual day, rather than being able to make them all in one shot 180 days before your arrival. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan the perfect visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
