    Will we need to pay a parking fee twice if we drive to a theme park before driving to our WDW resort for the night? We would like to go directly to Epcot before we check in (we plan to do online check-in before arrival) at the Contemporary that evening.

    Hi Danika! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is really getting close now! 

    Danika, I am happy to tell you that you will not be charged twice for parking. Since you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, when you get to Epcot, simply let the parking attendant know that you have a hotel reservation. The parking attendant will then scan your MagicBand to verify and wave you through. Since you have checked-in online, there is no need to visit your resort beforehand.  

    I hope that this answered your question, Danika!  Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can be of any help planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
