    where is parking located for those staying off the WDW grounds and how much does it cost to park. Would we be better off to Uber the 6 miles to and from our Airbnb?

    Hey there, Diane! Welcome to planDisney!

    I see that your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is just around the corner! You are in for such a magical time! Right now, there are so many exciting happenings at Walt Disney World. From The World's Most Magical Celebration to the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, you will have no problem filling your days with all kinds of fun while creating ever-lasting, pixie-dusted memories!

    Each park has its own parking lot for Guests who choose to drive their own vehicle. You can choose between standard parking or preferred parking, which gives you a spot a little closer to the entrance of each park. EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom each have parking lots just a short walk to the park entrance. For Magic Kingdom Park, you will park at the Ticket and Transportation Center. From there, you'll choose to travel to the park entrance using Disney Monorail Transportation or Disney Water Transportation, better known as a boat or ferryboat.

    Pricing for parking does vary seasonally, so be sure to check back closer to your trip to confirm these rates. The good news? You will only pay for parking once per day, so if you chose the Park Hopper option for your tickets, you'll only pay the parking fee at the first park you visit that day.

    Diane, if you choose to utilize a ride-share service during your visit, there are designated drop-off locations at each park. The drop-off spot for Magic Kingdom Park will be at the Ticket and Transportation Center, while the other three parks have drop-off locations in their respective parking lots. If you do choose this option, you will still be able to utilize other Walt Disney World Transportation methods to navigate from place to place throughout your day.

    Whichever option you choose, I sure do hope you have a fabulous trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
