    Have a reservation at a WDW resort. if we choose to go to the park on the day of our check-in, can we park in the resort lot or do we have to park in the regular guest parking lot for the park?

    Welcome to planDisney, Micheal! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today.

    It sounds like you and I have a lot in common because I am always looking for ways to maximize the amount of magic I can squeeze into my Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and that usually includes going straight to the Theme Parks when I arrive. If you are a guest at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, your parking is included from the day you check in all the way through the end of your check-out day so you're welcome to park your car in that lot and take Resort Transporation to the Theme Park of your choice. Complimentary parking at the Theme Parks is also included if you're a Resort Hotel guest, so you also have the option to drive straight to your destination if that works better for you!

    Did you know that Bell Services at your Resort Hotel will be happy to hold onto your luggage if you arrive before your room is ready? Just drop your bags off with them and they'll keep it safely stored for you until you're ready for it. You can either pick it up on the way to your room or call down from your room phone to have it delivered to you for a small fee.

    I hope this answers your question, Micheal, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
