    If I pay for parking in the morning and have to leave midday then return later that day, so I have to pay for parking again?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    No, if you paid to park at a Walt Disney World theme park earlier in the day, you do not have to pay to park a second time that same day when returning. You can visit a park, leave, and then return without having to pay again. As a matter of fact, when you park at one of the four theme parks, that fee covers you parking at any of the other theme parks that day. 

    For example, you could start your day parking at the Magic Kingdom Park and enjoy a morning of rides, characters, and adventure! Then you could leave, go back to your hotel for some pool time (or in my case, a hearty nap!), and then return to the Magic Kingdom for evening fun without paying again. If you are park hopping, you could even visit another park, like EPCOT, and not have to pay there either.

    If you are a Disney resort hotel guest and are paying a parking fee there, you do not have to pay for parking at the theme parks. It is included!

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
