    If the parks are extremely busy, will they allow us to park at the Boardwalk hotel to visit the Boardwalk if we don't have a dining reservation and aren't staying at that hotel?

    Hi, Terri!

    During the very busy times of the year or during special events, resort parking will be restricted to resort guests and guests with dining reservations. Parking is very limited at each of the Disney Resort hotels, so it can be tricky to try to park at any of the resorts without a reservation. If you wish to visit Disney's BoardWalk, you can take a bus from any theme parks or Disney Springs to one of the resorts on the BoardWalk. If you are coming from Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can even walk or take a boat.

    If you have a free evening, you may want to consider making a dining reservation for one of the fabulous restaurants located at the Boardwalk Inn or Yacht or Beach Clubs. Some that are my favorites:

    -Yachtsman Steakhouse (Disney's Yacht Club Resort)
    -Cape May Café (Disney's Beach Club Resort)
    -Trattoria al Forno (Disney's BoardWalk Inn)

    I hope you have a great stay in Walt Disney World and I hope you find the time to enjoy all the amazing dining options!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
