    Can I park at a Disney resort I'm not staying (I'm staying at Carribean beach but I want to go so the ginger break house at the Grand Floridian) to view the Christmas decorations or get something to eat at a quick service food location?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Apryl!

    With your arrival date on the horizon, I do not blame you one bit for wanting to plan those small, amazing activities that will create the most significant magical memories for you. 

    Yes, you are free to arrive and park at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, enjoy the holiday decorations, and partake in a yummy meal. When you arrive, be prepared to show your ID and let security know your plans, and they will let you know how to proceed. If you plan to visit the theme parks, it might be a good idea to utilize Disney transportation to arrive at the resort and then enjoy the Disney Monorail to Magic Kingdom Park. Otherwise, have the best time, and be sure to purchase a delightful gingerbread as a souvenir. 

    If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to let us know. 

    Have a magical Walt Disney World Resort experience!
