    Can I prepay for parking at Disney World?

    Hey there, Kaylynn! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    Being an easy 8-hour drive, my family and I typically drive to Walt Disney World. It sort of happened over time but the more we drove, the more we decided to drive ourselves to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and the more we ended up really enjoying the flexibility of having our own car. We've been doing it that way for years and years now and I can't think of a better way of getting around. 

    At this time, Kaylynn, it is not possible to prepay for all of your parking at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. However, I wanted to mention a few things. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or are a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder you will receive complimentary theme park parking each day of your vacation. Also, if you plan on park hopping, which is my favorite way to spend a Disney day, you only need to pay for parking once. Save your receipt to show the parking attendant at the next Walt Disney World Theme Park you're off to that same day and you won't need to pay anything additional. 

    Right now, standard theme park parking at Walt Disney World is $25.00 per day. If you'd like to upgrade to preferred parking you are looking at anywhere from $45-$50 per day. If you are a resort guest or annual passholder with complimentary parking and wish to upgrade to a preferred spot, you would only then need to pay the difference. 

    Something I like to do when I drive to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Kaylynn, is to keep a small cooler of water bottles in the car. The walk back to the car, no matter what time of day, can be hot and tiring and it's nice to have something refreshing waiting for you when you are back. 

    I'm sorry you won't be able to prepay for parking, Kaylynn, but the lines do move quickly and you will be on your way to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks in no time. If you have other questions, please stop back by and ask me. Have a great day!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
