    i'm renting a car and staying at the carribean beach resort. will i have to pay for parking at the hotel and theme parks?

    Hi Julie!
        I have some great news for you!  All Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort on property get to park for free at their Resort and at all of the Theme Parks in Walt Disney World.  When you check into the Caribbean Beach Resort, be sure you tell them that you have a rental car and they will print out a Parking Pass for the length of your stay at Walt Disney World.  Then you place the Parking Pass on dashboard of your rental car right in front of the steering wheel. 

        A great tip that I use to secure the Parking Pass to the dashboard is to bring a roll of Scotch Tape on my trip and put a little piece of tape on the top and bottom of the Parking Pass.  Also I would recommend bringing a GPS with you on your vacation if you own one.  Even though the roads and attractions are all well marked in Walt Disney World, it is helpful to use a combination of the signs and the GPS guidance to navigate around.  I have found that it is also very helpful to set the Home on you GPS to the Resort that you are staying at (in your case the Caribbean Beach Resort).  At the end of the night after you are done playing in the Parks, you can just press the Home button on your GPS and you will be guided back to your Resort!

    I hope that all of your travels around the happiest place on earth are magical on your next trip!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
