    Do we need a reservation to park our car?

    It's always a delight to see you at planDisney, Steven!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question for us. 

    You must be counting down the days until your trip begins! I know my family does the same as our Walt Disney World Resort vacation nEARs! If you're not already following planDisney on Instagram, I will encourage you to do so, as we share lots of tips and tricks that may help you during your magical vacation! 

    Steven, I'm happy to tell you that you do not need a reservation to park your car. There are plenty of parking spaces at Walt Disney World Resort, and it's allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The parking lots are spacious, and I've never had trouble finding a parking spot. In fact, the parking lots are so spacious, it's always a great idea to take note of where you parked your car. Each area is titled with a fun Disney character and a row number, and I like to take a note of it on my phone. Your feet will thank you at the end of the day when you're not having to wander around looking for your car. 

    There is a fee for standard parking at the theme parks. However, if you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will only have to pay to park at the Resort hotel overnight. Guests staying on-site do not have to pay for standard parking at the theme parks for the length of their stay. For current fees, check out the Parking information page

    If you're not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, please note that you would only pay to park at the theme parks once per day. You can exit and come back, or even go to another theme park, and you wouldn't have to pay an additional fee. I like to keep my receipt just in case I need to show a Cast Member that I have indeed already paid. 

    We can't wait to welcome you to the magic, Steven! Have an enchanting time.
