    If I am not staying at a Disney Hotel can I still park free at the theme parks if I am a DVC member.

    Welcome Home, Eric, and welcome to planDisney! It's always a treat to chat with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, and like the Genie, I'm here to make your vacation wishes come true!

    Being part of DVC is your ticket to all sorts of Membership Magic. From deluxe accommodations to exclusive Member lounges and events, there's a lot to love!  I always keep a close eye on the Member Benefits page anytime we're planning our next trip "Home" for the latest discounts and specials to make sure I don't miss anything. We'll often check out a new restaurant to expand our culinary horizons and take advantage of those Member perks!

    Currently, DVC Members enjoy free standard parking at any Walt Disney World Resort theme park if they are staying on property using their DVC membership (preferred parking costs extra). Unfortunately, this means you will not be able to use this benefit for your June vacation.

    If you decide not to drive to the parks on this trip, I will say that I regularly use rideshare for traveling between various locations at Walt Disney World and it's a breeze. There are usually plenty of available drivers and the fares tend to be low. 

    However, if you DO choose to drive, there's a handy tool in the My Disney Experience app called Car Locator. Just use it to save your parking spot and finding your car later will be a snap! For best results, allow location services on your phone and turn on notifications from the app.

    Eric, I'm sorry this wasn't the answer you were hoping for, but I bet you are still going to have a magical vacation with sunshine and snacks to spare. Thanks so much for visiting planDisney with your question and please don't hesitate to reach out again!

    Stay Magical!
