    If I am not staying on site, ( we have a villa). Can we still come see the Disney Hotels? If so where do we park?

    Greetings, Carys! The Walt Disney World is so much more than just four (magical) theme parks! There is the Disney Springs shopping district, two amazing water parks, and over twenty hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection!

    Guests are welcome to visit the Walt Disney World Resort hotels for shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreation. Guests can park at the resort hotel parking lot for free if they are there to enjoy any of the areas of interest that I mentioned. There are occasional limitations to parking at the resort hotels. These limitations primarily occur during the busiest time of the year – Christmastime!

    Carys, I hope you enjoy visiting the resort hotels! They are stunningly beautiful - just as one would expect at the Walt Disney World Resort! Perhaps visit a few of the hotels to get an idea of where you might want to stay during a future visit! My family enjoys dining and shopping at the resort hotels!

    If you’d like to make a dining reservation, you can make your reservation 60 days before your preferred dining date! You can make your reservation through the Walt Disney World Resort website or the MyDisney Experience app on your mobile device!

    Dreams do come true!
