    We have a reservation at Grand Floridian Café on the day we arrive. We are planning on taking the monorail over to Trader Sam's after. If we parked at the Grand Floridian, would we have enough time to do both without being charged for parking?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Jessi!

    Your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort is approaching, and I know you are so excited!

    You will love the delicious offerings at Grand Floridian Cafe and the fact that you plan to top it off with a stop at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, which will make for an excellent meal adventure. Day guests can dine at the restaurants, shop, or experience the recreation at Disney Resort hotels (Standard self-parking is complimentary regardless of the time it takes). However, if you know that you might stay a little longer, it might be a good idea to park at The Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) and utilize the Monorail Transportation; that way, you can take your time and even enjoy the ride in between. 

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We are happy to help.

    Have a magical experience!
