    Can you please direct me where to purchase premium parking pass with closer proximity to gates

    Hi Teresa,

    Are you already getting SO excited for your getaway to The Most Magical Place on Earth? Between the Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, the fall festivities (like Disney After Hours Boo Bash), and the 50th anniversary celebration, you're visiting at an AMAZING time! 

    Once you arrive at the theme parks, you'll be able to pay for either standard or preferred parking right there at the booth. The parking lot attendants will then point you in the right direction based on the type of parking you purchase. With preferred parking, you'll be in spots near the theme park entrance, so it will be easy peasy to head right to security and ticketing and begin your magical day! Do note, though, that if you're visiting Magic Kingdom Park, your parking spot will be closely located to the Transportation and Ticket Center where you'll board either a ferryboat or the iconic monorail to get to the theme park itself. 

    As you're planning your visit, I'd encourage you to arrive at the parking lot up to one hour before the theme park opens to make sure you have plenty of time to go through parking, security, and ticketing to be among the first Guests in the park for the day. Not only will that mean that you won't miss a minute of the magic, but my family has always found the shortest wait times first thing in the morning!

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, Teresa, and please come see us again if we can help with anything else as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I hope you have a truly magical vacation this fall!
