    After seeing the airline prices, thinking about driving to DW. We are staying at SS. Would we have to pay the daily parking fees since we are not DVC members?

    Hi Jaynee,

    It's great to hear from you again! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for bringing me your great question!

    Since my family is so large, we usually drive from Indiana for our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. We just make a day of it and bring our favorite Disney DVDs to watch during the drive. When we arrive at the most magical place on earth and pass through those beautiful welcome gates, we all shout and cheer and I get all giddy, just grateful and excited to be back at my happy place.

    Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is where my family has our Disney Vacation Club ownership, so I'm super happy to hear that you'll be staying at my much-loved, home resort. I really think you'll enjoy the spacious rooms, relaxed feel, gorgeous lake views, and proximity to all of the amazing shopping, dining, and entertainment options at Disney Springs.

    While Guests staying at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa through Disney Vacation Club are exempt from the parking fees, all other Guests who made reservations after March 21, 2018 will incur a standard overnight parking fee, which is currently $24 per vehicle per night for all Deluxe Villa Resorts. It will simply be added to your resort room charges and you'll pay for it when you check out. However, all Disney Resort hotel Guests do receive complimentary parking at the theme parks, so if you prefer to drive your own vehicle to the theme parks, you won't be charged any additional parking fees there.

    Please visit us again with any other questions you have, Jaynee! And whether you end up deciding to drive or fly, I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
