    can you prepay for parking?

    Hi there, Walter!

    Thanks for cruising by on your way to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Like Lightning McQueen's pit crew, I'm happy to help out on the road to adventure. Ka-chow!

    Standard and preferred self-parking is available at all Walt Disney World theme parks. You will pay upon arrival at the parking lot entrance; there is no way to pre-pay for parking. If you are like me and prefer to cover as many expenses as possible before your vacation begins, consider purchasing a Disney Gift Card, an accepted payment form at all Walt Disney World parking lots, for the anticipated cost of parking. Use any remaining funds after paying to park for almost anything in the theme parks and resorts, from snacks and meals to Disney Genie+ Service.

    I hope this is helpful, Walter. While you're here, I'll share some other quick tips about the parking situation at Walt Disney World.

    • Standard theme park parking is complimentary for registered Guests of hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection. If you're staying onsite, there's no need to pay for parking at all!
    • Standard parking at Disney Springs and the Walt Disney World Water Parks is free for all guests.
    • If you plan to visit more than one theme park per day and move your car, you only need to pay once. Save your receipt!
    • Did you forget where you parked? Use the Car Locator feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app.
    • Trams are available to whisk you from your car to the front entrance of the theme parks (or the Transportation & Ticket Center when visiting Magic Kingdom Park).
    Best wishes for safe and magical travels, Walter! Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and we'll see ya real soon!
