    Hi! Just learned that there is no more parking fees for resorts—that’s great! However, does that mean resort guests now have to pay for parking at the parks? I know all about the buses/transportation options, but sometimes prefer driving my own vehicle.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Julie!

    It has been a while since your last visit, and we are glad you have found your way back to us! I can see you will arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days, and I cannot wait for you to start making new magical memories!

    Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can enjoy several benefits that once again include complimentary overnight self-parking. I really like using Disney transportation to avoid the hassle of driving and parking, but I must admit that sometimes driving your own vehicle to the theme parks can be very convenient. 

    I am happy to share that standard theme park parking is still included for registered Guests of Disney Resort hotels, so you are more than welcome to drive to the theme parks to enjoy your day. If you choose to park in the preferred parking area, you will have to pay the difference in cost between standard and preferred parking. Please note that pricing varies depending on the season.

    planDisney tip: Did you know that the My Disney Experience mobile app offers a complimentary Car Locator feature? Car Locator is available at all four theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs and uses location services to find and save your parking details. This feature makes finding your car at the end of the day a lot easier. After parking your vehicle, open the app on your mobile device, tap the car locator on your home screen and follow the prompts to enter your car information.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Julie. Come back to visit us if you have more questions. It is a pleasure to assist you as you dream of your next visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    See ya real soon!
