    We have a park reservation on January 17 for MK with a dinner reservation at California Grill that night. Can we park that morning at the Contemporary to spend the day at MK before our dinner reservation?

    Hello Ashley!

    Welcome back to planDisney with an excellent question! I believe there is nothing more magical than ending your day with a signature-dining experience at California Grill after having fun at Magic Kingdom Park.

    I am happy to hear that you have already linked valid theme park admission to your Disney account and made Disney Park Pass reservations. As you prepare for your upcoming visit, remember to download the latest version of the My Disney Experience app to your mobile device to help us promote social distancing efforts. Also, do not forget to check updates on the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Please note that complimentary standard self-parking is only available while enjoying select dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreation experiences at Disney Resort hotels. Since you plan to spend the day at Magic Kingdom Park, you are welcome to park at the theme park’s parking lot. You can walk to Disney’s Contemporary Resort to enjoy dinner at California Grill in the evening and afterward retrieve your car from the parking lot. You can also exit the park at the end of the day, pick up your car and then park it at the hotel’s parking lot after presenting your dining reservation confirmation.

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Ashley! I hope this helps you while planning and that you stop by real soon for more tips and advice.

    Best magical wishes,
