    Can overnight resort hotel guests park for free at the parks on the day of check-out?

    Hi Janet!

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney with your question - I'm happy to help!

    There's nothing more magical than a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. You'll feel truly immersed when you stay at a Disney Resort Hotel - you're close to the theme parks, water parks, and shopping venues, the theming in the rooms and restaurants is amazing, and the Guest Service is unmatched. My family likes to call it "staying in the bubble", where every bit of our vacation is surrounded by Disney magic.

    Registered Guests of Disney Resort Hotels can enjoy complimentary standard theme park parking for the length of their stay, including the day of check-out. In fact, if you'd like to leave your bags with Bell Services on your check-out day while you enjoy the theme parks, they will be more than happy to store your luggage for you. You'll receive a claim check to present when you come back to retrieve your bags and are ready to head home. ( I typically tip Bell Services $1-2 per bag when I choose to utilize this service.) My family likes to squeeze in as much theme park time as we can on our Disney vacations, and usually want one last look at Cinderella Castle before our vacation comes to an end!

    I hope this helps with your planning for your upcoming vacation. Please come back and visit us here at planDisney if we can answer any more questions before you arrive!
    Have a magical day - Diane W.
