    If I am park, hopping from animal kingdom to magic kingdom, and would like to take my personal car what I have to pay parking at the second park?

    Hey there, Valerie!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're delighted you decided to cruise over with your question about visiting the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks! Your day at The Most Magical Place on Earth is nearly here, and the countdown's almost over. Now, let's discuss parking at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. We'll have you on your way faster than you can say "ka-chow!"

    I'm happy to hear you're planning on "hopping" between two theme parks during your upcoming visit, Valerie - you're in for a day full of thrills and excitement! I understand you'd like to drive to and park a personal vehicle at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, then zip over to Magic Kingdom Park later in the day. I'm happy to inform you that Guests pay for parking only once when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, no matter how many times they "hop!" You'll pay a single fee for a parking pass that'll be good all day at all four theme parks, Valerie. When you pay to park at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, you'll receive a receipt. Keep that receipt handy, because you'll need to present it when you arrive at the entrance to Magic Kingdom Park so the Cast Members know you've already paid for parking that day.

    Valerie, all of that driving and park-hopping sounds exhausting! When it's time to refuel, consider stopping by one of my favorite fill-up stations on all of Walt Disney World Resort property: Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. There, you'll find creatively-crafted cocktails and savory small bites. If you're looking for a pit stop at Magic Kingdom Park, you can't go wrong with a stop at Aloha Isle in Adventureland. For a super sweet treat, choose the Tropical Serenade - you won't regret it!

    I hope this information helps get you on the road to a magical and memorable day at the Walt Disney World Resort, Valerie. If you have any additional questions before your visit, you can always stop over at planDisney anytime. We're here to help you race from park to park for your perfect Disney day!

    Enjoy the journey,
