    Can I park at the Grand Floridian if I am not staying at the resort? And then go to the Magic Kingdom.

    Season's greetings, Vonnie, and welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited for your pixie-dusted adventures to begin tomorrow, so let’s get started!

    Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of my favorite spots at Walt Disney World Resort, especially during the holidays. I checked with a Cast Member, and they explained how parking works at the Grand Floridian: You may park at the Resort if you are a Guest staying there, a Guest with a reservation at one of the Resort’s dining locations, or a day Guest visiting a Guest with a Resort reservation. If you happen to have a dining reservation at the Grand Floridian, parking is complimentary, but it’s typically limited to about three hours. So, even with a dining reservation, you wouldn’t be able to park at the Grand Floridian for the entire day while you visit Magic Kingdom Park. Instead, once you finished your meal and were ready to head to the Magic Kingdom, you would need to return to your car and follow the signs to the Magic Kingdom Park parking lot. 

    If you don’t fit one of the three criteria above, then you can head directly to the Magic Kingdom Park parking lot. I recommend checking out this page for more helpful Parking information. For the latest operational information for Walt Disney World Resort, I recommend staying tuned to this page on the Disney Parks Blog. The Blog is the best spot for any breaking Disney Parks news! 

    I can’t wait for you to experience a taste of the holidays tomorrow at the Most Magical Place on Earth, Vonnie! I loved viewing the beautiful projection effects on Cinderella Castle at night. They make the perfect backdrop to a holiday photo! Also, don’t miss this Foodie Guide to Holiday Treats at Magic Kingdom Park – An Orange Bird Christmas was recently a favorite treat of my group! 

    Wishing you a joyful visit filled with festive fun!

Greetings from sunny California! I live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder (and now a Magic Key Passholder) for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids ages 5-10, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Learn More About Kristin
