    I’m planning a trip for September and have not stayed on property in a long time. I will have a rental car and wanted to know when staying at any Disney property hotel, do you have to pay for parking at the parks?

    Hi there, Freida, and welcome to planDisney!

    September visits to Walt Disney World Resort bring yummy eats at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival (I love those mini festival Disney Gift Cards) and the not-too-spooky Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. I am more than happy to give you more information about what’s included in your on-site hotel stay. 

    I have some awesome news for you, Freida: Yes, as a Guest at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, your theme park standard parking is included for the entire length of your stay. Make sure that you have your hotel reservation, ticket, or MagicBand+ and a form of photo identification with you when you enter the parking lots. I have a Walt Disney World Annual Pass, which also includes complimentary standard parking, and I like to have everything I need ready to go way before I get to the parking booth. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: Don’t forget to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry when you’re staying on property. This means that you can enter the theme parks an entire 30 minutes before the rest of Mickey’s Guests stop by. Trust me, you can get a lot done in that extra half of an hour. Woohoo! 

    Freida, please revisit us here at planDisney if you have any other Disney vacation planning questions. I would love to share more tips and tricks with you to help maximize your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Magic always,
