    Can we park our car at a theme park, leave, then come back with the same parking lot pass, the same day? Or do we have to pay for parking every time? We understand we can leave and reenter theme parks many times on a same day, but unclear for parking lots.

    Hiya Vanessa, it's good to see you here at planDisney!

    Once upon a time, before we all got lazy and started flying, my family used to take that long drive from Louisiana all the way to Central Florida all piled up in a 15 passenger van. That van plus staying offsite equaled parking at the Disney Parks every day of our trip. Now one of the many great things about the Walt Disney World Resort is that they make parking a breeze! If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can pay the parking fee for the hotel and use Disney Transportation to get to and from the parks each day. If you decide to drive from that hotel instead of using the complimentary transportation, parking at the Disney Parks is no extra charge! If you're staying offsite and driving in each day, you simply pay a single fee for the day. Leaving and returning requires no extra payment!

    Vanessa, I hope we at planDisney have been able to give you some clarity.

    Happy planning!
