    Hi. We originally registered for Magical Express but have now decided to rent a car for the week. We have already done online check-in. Do we have to cancel Magical Express? And will our resort, Port Orleans French Quarter charge us a parking fee?

    Dear Abby,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    That's no problem about your Disney's Magical Express change. As a courtesy, you can update your Magical Express return reservation by stopping by the hotel concierge or by calling them from your room phone to let them know, so that they don't send a coach to pick you up at the end of your stay. 

    The parking charge is dependent on when you booked your Walt Disney World Resort trip to begin with. If your reservation was made before March 21, 2018, then there will not be a parking fee. Reservations made after March 21, 2018 will incur a resort parking fee. As a reminder, parking your rental car during the day at one of the theme parks is included as a perk of staying on site at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
