    Hello! Do the parking lots for the parks at WDW ever reach capacity? Also, is there anything that we need to do to check in for our first park day when we get there? We have tickets, park passes, and magic bands linked on the app. Thanks!

    Hi Kevin! 

    I'm thrilled to see that your Walt Disney World vacation is coming up in just two weeks! I bet you are getting excited! When you arrive at the Walt Disney World theme park on the first day, you don't need to do anything special other than scanning your Magic Band at the gate. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can even leverage direct-to-room service to bypass the front desk and go directly to your room using your Magic Band or the My Disney Experience app.

    In regards to parking at the Walt Disney World theme parks, I personally have never seen the parking lots reach capacity. I have visited the parks numerous times at the busiest times of the year and I often drive myself....and yet, I've never had a problem parking. There have certainly been times that I've been parked far away (and maybe even forgot where I parked) but I've never had a challenge finding a space. 

    You can be rest assured that even if you arrive later in the day and a parking lot fills up, a Cast Member will direct you to alternate parking to ensure you can get into the park. If you have any concerns about driving to the parks, consider leveraging Resort Transportation.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
