    Do we need to pay parking at a resort if dining there?

    Hi Tammy, 

    It's always fun to help a fellow Bay Stater plan their Disney vacation! When you have an Advanced Dining Reservation at a Disney resort, you are able to park for free for up to three-hours while dining. When you arrive at the gate of the resort, a Cast Member will greet you. Simply provide him or her with your last name and the time of your reservation so they can confirm your booking. Be sure to bring your confirmation number with you just in case they need further assistance in locating your reservation. You will then be permitted to park for free. The gate agent will direct you as to where they would like you to park. Some of the resorts request that you use the valet parking. In those cases, you can bring your dining receipt to the valet desk when you are done enjoying your meal. They will use that receipt to validate your parking for you so you don't have to pay. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
