    Is preferred parking available to purchase prior to arriving for vacation if you are staying off Disney property?

     Hi Suzanne, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! I’ve had a chance to use preferred parking at Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks and it’s really convenient, especially if you’re running late for a dining reservation or your feet are starting to get sore after several days of running around the Parks. 

    From what I understand, there is currently no way to pre-pay for preferred parking at Walt Disney World Resort. That being said, the only times that I’ve ever seen it unavailable has been during a particularly busy day at the Parks or when a special event is taking place, such as a runDisney event (as they’re usually staged in Epcot’s parking lot). If you’re concerned about getting a spot, your best bet would be to show up early in order to minimize your chances that it won’t be available that day. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
